n°9 - 10/01/06

"Racing driver's equipment manufacturer"
"Made-to-measure and to your colors from head to toe"
"The racing driver is the most important person in the world"

2005 was a great season; in fact, with series such as A1 (with Stand 21 being the medical team's partner), the Monte-Carlo Rally, Grand Am, the Dakar or the start of F1, Nascar, GT... the off-season doesn't exist anymore for numerous drivers... and the 2006 season has already started.

On the safety side, 2006 will be remembered for the SNELL SA 2005 standard application (which is the most well-known helmet standard worldwide) and the brand new ST3000 racing suit introduction, resulting from the extensive Heat Stress program started in 2003. After its success in testing with 5 drivers in different series (DTM, ALMS, classic races...), its reputation has been established at the PRI during its "official presentation" and it has already convinced numerous teams and drivers.
It is the first and only breathable racing suit in the world.


 

Find out all about this revolutionary suit and all the new Stand 21 items in the 2006 Stand 21 catalogue avilable early January in the Stand 21 distribution network.

WHAT'S NEW

Helmets:

All of our helmets are now Snell SA 2005 standard homologated (see "Standards" section). A green-grey visor has been added to the Stand 21 helmets range.




Racing suits:

Good news for all drivers who suffer from heat: the ST3000, the most breathable, fire-resistant racing suit, is available.

After several tests with professionnal drivers worldwide, we give you this exclusive pairformance® , stretchable and breathable fabric racing suit.

Like every Stand 21 racing suit, it is 100% customizable and will be available in 13 colors.


KEY POINTS


Helmets:

- All Stand 21 helmets have passed the SNELL SA 2005 standard, the strictest standard in motor racing.

Hans®:

- The FIA has established a procedure to check the Hans® post anchors on helmets using the Hans® system.
Stickers are put directly on the shell, the manufacturer being the only one authorized to stick them after the post anchors assembly. Post anchors must be FIA engraved and Hans® tethers must have a specific standard marking. Since January, 1st, 2006, stickers, engraved post anchors and marked tethers are compulsory in F1 world championship, FIA GT, WTCC and for WRC factory drivers and co-pilots.

- Here is a very important extract from the World Motor Sport Council which took place on December, 9th, 2005 in Monaco:

"From January 1, 2008, an FIA-approved head restraint (HANS) will be mandatory for all drivers and co-drivers in all FIA championships, trophies, cups and challenges. From January 1, 2009 it will be mandatory for entrants in all other events entered on the FIA International Sporting Calendar.
For cars, in which for technical reasons it is considered impracticable to fit the FIA approved head restraint, it will be possible to apply for a waiver to the FIA Safety Commission."



- We remind you that for a better Hans® use, adapted to your needs, we can supply an effective
air padding system, which has been adopted by many drivers worldwide.


A CONSTANT RESEARCH TO BRING EXCEPTIONNAL PRODUCTS


Helmets:

Our R&D department is working on a new large helmet that should be available in mid-2006 and that should fit drivers who have a head circumference between 58 and 65 cm.



Gloves:

- We are currently finishing our FIA 8856-2000 standard gloves development.
There will be 2 models: one will still use leather in areas specified by the new standard (Daytona gloves) and the other one will be made entirely with fire-resistant fabric (outside seams gloves II).

- As the new standard has been established, FIA 8856-2000 gloves durability and grip is decreased compared to the FIA 86 standard gloves (this standard is compulsory in F1, WRC and FIA GT only).


BENEFIT FROM THE BEST LEAD TIMES FOR MADE-TO-MEASURE PRODUCTS!!!

Helmets:

Right now it takes around 15 working days for a made-to-measure and/or customized helmet.

Racing suits:

Racing suits manufacturing takes around 10 to 15 working days.
