As of this year - yes you do have to get a competition liscence from the MAI.
As well as some special insureance coverage.

I guess you mean last year ie 2004 w/ the SL55 & Cayenne?

I remember him having to get insureance (as well as the liscence i think). He met up with some1 from MAI or autocar and got all the paperwork done in one shot i beleive.
I was not in the country n was just talking to him over MSN abt this stuff so i cant give u a guaranteed answer as to what happened in the end, so if some1 who was here could confirm.....

Things to do before taking part in the next Drag...or any organised 4 wheeler event:

1. Get the regulations from the organiser. Thses should be out atleast 3 weeks before the event. Here you will find all the information pertaining to the entries, dates, technical regs, what you need to bring, how the event will run, the classes running, protest procedures.

2. Log onto The MAI Website and download the licence forms. There are different types, so check which one you need.

3. Complete the form...duh!.. along with the medical form which is to be filled up from your doctor. Send them in to the MAI along with the fees. The MAI will have your licence ready within 5 days max.

4. Now send in your entry form to the organiser and confirm whether they received it or not.

5. You may have to get high risk insurance for you and your car (rally cover). This will be noted in the regs if needed.

6. Once your entry is confirmed, thats it! Make sure you turn up on time with all your documents and MAI licence. If everything is in order, you will be issued a Competitors ID tag meaning you're good to go!

7. You car may have to be scrutineered too, so make sure everything is working fine.

Thats it. You're now ready to start racing! Simple huh! Have fun and be careful....airbags cost a bomb to replace...lol
