    We have used one in the past with no problems. It is even painted to match the race car.

    I found out just about anything is allowed in the pits except a go-cart.:(

    you plan to unload it and load it up each night or leave it on the salt for the duration of your stay?
    from the end of the road to the action is several miles of 55 mph speed limit. i wouldn't suggest driving it from the bend in the road each day.

    I was hoping this was going to be a golf cart land speed question.

    Not for spectators. Must have a racecar (and therefore a pit pass) to bring in motorized vehicles as I understand. Check w/ the SCTA to be sure.

    If they allow it, be sure to prep it for being on the salt. Bonneville Loctite doesn't like electrical systems with exposed parts, and make sure all moving parts are well protected with grease, etc.

    Check the landracing.com forum for info and tips.
