Well the way the rules are written, No. I would guess not.

It says, stock, or if harness and expired date, must be 5 point and visually in perfect condition.



(this is not directed at Dark Integra, but merely a polite request to everyone)....

FWIW, its really important that everyone read the CCRs. they are in place so we may all participate safely without any confusion. Everyone, if you havnt read the CCR atleast once or twice each season, please do so.

restraint is not permitted. Passenger seatbelts must meet the same minimum
