Updated DE Safety rules

Hello fellow Rennsport track addicts

PCA has updated the DE safety rules effective January 1, 2019. The specific rule change only affects DE participants that use harnesses during DE sessions. Starting January 1, 2019 DE participants using multi-point harness systems will be required to utilize a head and neck restraint (HNR) system, commonly referred to as a HANS device. The HNR must meet the standards of either SFI 38.1 or FIA 8858. This rule applies to all PCA Regional DE’s.

To the uninitiated, the experience of driving on a racetrack is an abstract fantasy, but for those fortunate enough to participate in DE events, their lives change irrevocably. To learn is to grow!
