Harnesses: Extract from a FIA report
“After an accident which happened on the Paris Dakar 2003, the FIA has decided to forbid the use of harnesses homologated FIA 8853/98 and FIA 8854/98 on sandy terrain (WRC, cross county). In this case, the use of an harness with the SFI type hook is compulsory”

Subject: helmet offer


Hallo,
I'm an italian driver and I used your helmets for my racing activity. Before I used Bell , than S.21 (I race since 1975....)

On july 20th I had a big crash (25h FunCup) at EauRouge of SpaFrancorchamps
and had many fractures and injuries, but my head was well protected
from a F21 air force that crashed on the front visor and I had my life saved! I had just a bruise on my front in the point of crashing of the helmet.
F.I.A. gave back to me the helmet, on my request, after 4 mounths and now I keep it as..."souvenir".
If you want I can give you pictures to see the helmet after a frontal crash on the wall at the speed of over 180 km/h!!

Now that I've tested good quality of your product on my head, I need a new one!
So please can you give me a ..special offer for a F21AirForce with peak ?

I enclose some pics of last 24 h.Nurburgring with the helmets on our car (BMW M3); you can see my helmet...
and one at Spa before accident.

Thank you for your attention and the kindest regards
