Intermarques at Donington Park Saturday 11th July 2015.

Added: 6th July 2015

There will be a mandatory drivers’ briefing at midday at Matt Simpson’s transporter. The briefing will be followed by a general mid-season discussion about how the Championship is proceeding and, to discuss possible plans for the future of the Championship. As drivers are fully aware there will be NO regulation changes this year and the purpose of the meeting is to ascertain the thoughts and ideas of drivers at this stage. The meeting last is scheduled to last 30 minutes MAXIMUM.

So as not to preclude any registered Intermarque drivers, not competing at Donington Park, these drivers should convey, before next Saturday, to either Richard Smith as Intermarque driver’s representative, or to myself as Championship Co-ordinator, any thoughts or ideas they may have concerning the Championship.

The use of Frontal Head Restraints

Added: 6th July 2015

There is bound to be talk about the use of Frontal Head Restraints at the moment. HANS is a brand name applicable to a particular design of FHR, and is the one most will be familiar with. Some harnesses are marked as “HANS use only”. As previously advised, such harness can be used with any FIA-homologated FHR device. Although there are harnesses marked this way, it is not mandatory to use a “HANS use only” harness when using an FHR. A normal FIA-homologated harness fitted with 3 inch shoulder straps can be used, and many competitors do so. A “HANS use only” harness, though, can only be used in conjunction with an FHR.

MSA regulations require that where it is mandated, the FHR is FIA-homologated. The HANS device comes in 3 different widths each with 5 different angles, so there are 15 varieties and what may be correct for one driver in one car may not be correct for the same driver in another car. There is also an adjustable HANS device. In addition to checking the unit for cracks, webbing for signs of fraying etc., check that the adjuster mechanism is sound. The Simpson Hybrid device is sized by the chest measurement, and the angle of driver seat recline does not affect the operation of the device.

Shoulder straps should make an angle of 10° to and below the horizontal. The mounting points equally disposed about the users centreline, and such that the straps are positioned to firmly engage with the FHR. The minimum is a four-point harness and – as with any harness – the straps must be pulled tight.

Helmets are to be equipped by the helmet manufacturer – or their agent – with FIA-homologated fixation points. Some helmets are specifically identified to be suitable for use with an FHR. Tethers are to be adjusted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
