Safety Solutions Hybrid Restraint Receives FIA Approval

Simpson Performance Products Receives
FIA Approvals

June 30, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas, USA – The Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) has approved the Simpson / Safety Solutions Hybrid Head Restraint and the Rally and Competitor Racing Gloves for use in FIA sanctioned competition, effective immediately.

Trevor Ashline, inventor of the Hybrid Head Restraint, had the following to say, “The FIA approval represents a real milestone for us. It speaks to our dedication to providing world class neck protection for racers. We are extremely proud of having organizations like the FIA add their stamp of approval to our design, as one of only two approved designs in the world. I have to thank everyone involved for their hard work and dedication to this project. It is important to note that we have the first FIA approved alternative to the HANS Device, giving racers more choices and benefits to consider. The Hybrid offers improved protection from multiple angles, a low profile for easy entry and exit from the race car and reduced body load, thus it is a comfortable device to wear.”

Chuck Davies, CEO for Simpson adds, “Simpson is committed to providing the highest level of safety to racers. Our acquisition of Safety Solutions in December of 2010 was an important piece of the puzzle for Simpson, in working toward our goal of a comprehensive and strong offering of racing safety products for a global sport. Trevor Ashline and the team from Safety Solutions are a valuable asset in our technology advances. The approval of the Head Restraints adds to our range of FIA approved racing products which includes suits, belts, gloves and undergarments.”
