Wearing a head restraint device approved by the FIA is mandatory...
Wearing a head restraint device approved by the FIA is mandatory for all drivers and co-drivers in international events. Check with the Federation, sanctioning body that oversees your Championship: the decisions to make FHR mandatory are sometimes taken without advance warning. In any cases it is not advisable for your safety and your comfort to wear and install a FHR at the last minute or in very short time, especially without the assistance of FHR professional.
What is the FHR?
The FHR is the greatest safety innovation since the full-face helmet and the fire retardant racing suit. It reduces the risk of basilar skull fracture or muscle stretching during an intense deceleration, the primary cause of death in motor racing. A sign of drivers awareness: 2 out of 3 now purchase a FHR whereas it is or not compulsory in their racing series. This system can also be used with an open-face helmet, making its use much safer.
