    I can't recall if I saw Miata guys wearing arm restraints last year at NJMP. It was a TNIA which is usually a bit more lax, but I don't think safety items are really at the promoters discretion. My tech was giving me a little grief about my head poking a tiny tiny bit through the Elise, even though targa/T-top cars don't have to meet the broomstick test according to a strict reading.

    Look up track night america for meets in your area
    They meet once a month in various locations and if you are an SCCA member it is around $165
    and they dont require certification for seat belts

    Track night in America at njmp checked my (expired) harnesses for date and wouldn't let me run them in my Elise. I had to wear the stock 3 point.

    Reviving this thread to get help with my current belt dilemma.

    My Racequip 6-points expired (2019 dating). So I know that I need new belts before I could do a track day at NJMP or probably other places.

    The Racequip that I have can be used as 4-point or 6-point, as the buckle is on one of the lap belts. According to Pegasus Racing, FIA now mandates that the buckle be on the crotch belts. So FIA 6-point belts can no longer be used as 4-point. I really don't want to go to all of the trouble and expense of replacing with SFI belts and have only 2-year dating.

    Advice?

    I would also be surprised if they don't require a HANS device with any harness.

    Sounds like there is no option but to get 6 pointers with buckle latch on the crotch belt If you want a 5 year FIA life.

    HANS is not mandatory at NJMP. 6 point belts plus arm restraints but no HANS. Matter of time I suspect.
