Signature of Crew Members
The Rules and Regulations pertaining to Motor Sport have been read out tome. The Supplementary Regulations and the entry form has also been readout to me.
We request all participants to give particular attention to safetyprocedures and equipment. Safety prevents you from physical harmand protects you from injuries.
It is always safer to wear FULL FACE HELMETS instead of OpenFace Helmets. Full Face Helmets save lives, minimises risk of deathand permanent injury. When you buy a helmet check for these:
Expand the opening by pulling the chin straps and put it on.
Don’t yank the chin straps as it will snap. If the helmet hasremovable cheek pads, take it out and then try on the helmetto get a perfect fit.
Put your hands on the side of the helmet and rotate it fromside to side. A well-fitting helmet will have no movement.
With the chin strap on, try to pull the helmet off your head. If itcomes off or shows appreciable movement, DON'T BUY IT.
Never store a helmet in direct sun light as it affects its outershell adversely. So DO NOT BUY a helmet from a shop’swindow if it is being displayed in the sunlight for a long time.
Polycarbonate helmets are always safer than others.
Helmets should have foam padding, thermocole lining and theimpact absorbing E.P.S. (expanded polystyrene) should be atleast 6 mm thick.
The chin strap BUCKLE come with two types of securingsystems – “D” ring or a seat belt type locking action. Theimportant thing to remember is that according to ISI standardsthis buckle is supposed to take a load of 140 Kgs.
If safety procedures and equipment were used competitorswill be minimising risks of life threatening situations.
The best brand names in India are STEELBIRD – BIEFFE;VEGA; MPA – FORMA SPORTS and SAFE.
Look for the ISI certification mark.
Fire extinguishers have to be carried in all competing four wheelers. Theywill be inspected during scrutiny and “OK” stickers not given under thefollowing circumstances:
If the equipment has exceeded its date of expiry as printed on thebody.
