n°4 - 15/05/04
" Manufacturer of Racing Driver Equipment from Head to Toe "
" Made to your measure with your design "
" The racing driver is the most important person in our world "

To have an exclusive distribution network (franchisees, distributors…) in more than 20 countries in the world brings a variety and a richness in the orders (different models, colours, embroideries, made to measure sizes, options… in 90% of the cases) everyday.
Our goal is to convert your dream into a reality, respecting your demands, the standards, delivery times and the imperative stand21 manufacturing quality.
I thank all our Stand21 representatives who go to the racing tracks worldwide.

Meantime, we attended several safety meetings around the world, like the ICMS (twice a year), which brings professors, doctors, safety teams, federation representatives, people responsible for standards, technical directors… together from all over the racing world (FIA, NASCAR, IRL, CART, SNELL…)
They are very involved and very conscious to optimise the safety the comfort and physical conditions of the driver. It is a very good opportunity and allows big steps for our sport to see all these different persons, from different countries share their experience with humility.
That is why we have reinforced our R&D team, to pass in a very short time all the standards of the helmet range to the FIA / Hans standard, as well as our first Hans Model, made in France, which will be followed by a new one every 3 weeks (12 models in total).
We are helped by the Pr Meistelman (FIA), Pr Terry Trammel (CART USA) etc… Stand21 is preparing a series of tests to better understand the reactions of the human body when temperatures are changing (thermal transfer), the energy spent, and sweat lost in different equipment.

The passion and involvement of the stand21 team across the world (about 100 persons), allows us to see the future with confidence and have technical goals which will comply totally to your needs.

“A new problem has been recently understood: How to reduce heat stress and heat transfer? It is a real source of acuteness loses and crash (ISO 7933/ISO 9886)” FIA report bone by Dr Claude Meistelman, school of Medecine, France.In addition with technical features of manufacture, you will benefit from a human being sourcing thanks to the participation of a specialized professor in hand surgery and the peripheral nerves along with the setting up of racing drivers hands data bases (photos taken on race tracks).
