Air Bag Light Under Hard Braking?

Have any other IRL competition (auto-x, club racing) drivers experienced the air bag readiness light coming on under very hard braking? I went from about 70 to 15 in a straight line and the light came on. This was the first auto-x I was at that had a very long straightaway followed by a very tight chicane. I think I threshold-broke perfectly, navigated the chicane, and powered out awesome, except for the DING DING DING, and the light came on. Any clues as to why, or should I get the car serviced?

have the code read at a dealer first. that will determine what your next move is.

sometimes when I go hard accel with my cutout wide open my airbag light will come on. done it about 4-5 times, never had a problem though but waiting for that day...

Forum favorites: When darkmanX beat me in a roll, the cover page red Redline is right-hand drive, the GMPONE crew and all the other members I met, the few twincharged RL's out there, and of course my original purchases from Ron9919 which gave me my first mod bug.
