Race with Restraint

You are here

Race with Restraint is a program dedicated to making Frontal Head Restraints (FHR) easily accessible to anyone who goes on a race track. The Motorsport Safety Foundation offers drivers at all levels the chance to rent a HANS Device or Simpson Hybrid for a low fee.

One of the most important discoveries in racing safety is understanding that death can result from the mere movement of the unrestrained head during an accident. Frontal Head Restraints reduce the likelihood of fatal injuries in the event of a crash by limiting the forward movement of the head during a collision. The device rests on the shoulder and attaches to a helmet using fabric tethers that clip to permanent anchors in the helmet. Although most sanctioning bodies have adopted the mandatory use of Frontal Head Restraints during competitive racing, many tracks independently allow drivers to race without a restraint. Today, the majority of drivers won’t step inside a racecar without a Frontal Head Restraint device.

Never race without a restraint! Even small accidents can become fatal without it.
