Proposed Regulation

NEW Regulations

P25.1. For Hill Rallies, and Competitive Safaris, Timed Trials, Team Recoveries and Point to Point, all Competitors must wear approved Crash Helmets (K.10), FIA approved FHRs, and goggles or visors to protect their eyes, and clothing which covers the arms, legs and torso up to the neck. Recommended 2018, mandatory 2019.

For Timed Trials, Team Recoveries and Point to Point, all Competitors must wear approved Crash Helmets (K.10) and goggles or visors to protect their eyes, and clothing which covers the arms, legs and torso up to the neck.

Additionally competitors in Sports Utility Task Vehicles must wear an FIA approved FHR device, fitted in accordance with FIA regulations.



Reason:. The Cross Country Committee has had reservations about the suitability of the yoke style FHR due to ergonomics of the seating in the most prolific type of vehicle used. The wider availability and suitability of the waistcoat style FHR has seen a steady uptake by competitors and the ending of SA2005 and the SFi helmet standards at the end of 2018 will be the point at which the majority of competitors who do not currently have an FHR compatible helmet will replacing their crash helmets.

Date of implementation: 1st January 2019

Committee: Cross Country Committee Date of meeting: 10th May 2017 Closing date for consultation: 31st August 2017 Email for comments: crosscountryconsultation@msauk.or
