most tracks require that trunk mounted batteries have a master cut-off switch. My question is would it be acceptable to mount the switch on the bumper behind the license plate or does it have to be out in the open? Thanks Dave
The rules state that it has to be "readily accessable" so I don't think behind the plate would work. The whole idea is that track personel can shut off the car at the starting line if they see something wrong and cannot get your attention, or heaven forbid you have a crash, they can shut it down. They need to see it very clearly and it has to be clearly labled as to which way shuts it off.

I saw a great setup up at the woodward dream cruise... I forget the type of car, might have been a t-type/grand national...
The switch was put thru the license plate and his plate was actually "ON OFF". The switch was placed right between the 'ON' & 'OFF'... It was a legal Michigan plate too. I'll have to keep that in mind!
