MSA announcement regarding HANS devices for 2015 season

Posted on November 20, 2014

The Motor Sports Association are making steps to make HANS devices (aka Frontal Head Restraints) mandatory for circuit racing, with a two tier process starting in 2015 and continuing into the 2016 season.

For the 2015 season, drivers of single seaters built from year 2000 onwards will need to have a HANS device or similar.

Drivers may also need to consider replacing their helmets with ones with HANS attachment posts.   Some helmet manufacturers offer a service to retro-fit HANS posts to some helmet designs that require drilling. If you have pre-drilled holes, you may be able to buy the posts to fit yourself.   Do not drill your own helmet.

(Q) Circuit Racing 

Date of implementation: 1 January 2015

10.1(e) An FIA approved FHR device, fitted in accordance with FIA regulations, is:

(i) Mandatory for the driver of a Single Seater Racing Car manufactured after 01/01/2000

(ii) Recommended for the driver in all other forms of Circuit Racing. This will be a mandatory requirement from 1st January 2016, with the exception of Period Defined Vehicles which will remain as a recommendation.
