The Melbourne Jamboree is an IHRA Sanctioned event. ALL vehicles racing must comply with IHRA safety rules. If your vehicle does not comply with the IHRA rules you will NOT be allowed to race.


IHRA Licence or Identification must be presented to collect passes at the gate. Entrant must make own arrangements for distribution of passes.

Note: Using passes and not racing will result in a request for balance of true value of passes, prior to further acceptance of future event entry.

Armbands: Armbands will only be issued in exchange for a (competitor or crew) pass. The total maximum number of passes issued by The Jamboree AUS Pty Ltd for that class or bracket is the maximum number of armbands permitted. All competitors must read, accept and sign the IHRA Indemnity Statement to receive an armband.

All drivers/crew must display the relevant armband at all times.


Swan Hill Dragway uses the IHRA Competitor Audit System (CAS). The Competitor Audit System requires that all Competitors accept responsibility for compliance with safety and classification regulations relevant to their vehicle, prior to the event. The main advantage of this program from a competitor point of view is that it will significantly reduce the time you spend in the Scrutineering Bay. Once you have entered your vehicle you will receive Competitor Information & Declaration Forms that will explain the system and it’s requirements. All non-IHRA licence holders must still present their vehicle at scrutineering so there allocated race number can be put on their window.
