The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association announced that HANS has been named The Official Head and Neck Restraint of SVRA. HANS joins an ever increasing list of brands and companies supporting SVRA in its expanded 2013 race season.
“We are very pleased to have the HANS brand as a partner. The safety of our competitors is of the utmost importance to SVRA and to be involved with a leader in driver safety such as HANS underscores our commitment in this area,” said SVRA President & CEO, Tony Parella.
Jim Downing, co-founder of HANS Performance Products said, “We are glad to have HANS associated with the SVRA as a sponsor. One of the unique aspects of this relationship will be getting involved with the technical representatives of the SVRA to help implement best practices when it comes to the use of Head and Neck Restraints. This will be a significant pilot program we hope to implement in other racing series.”
