Trevor Ashline, expert restraint engineer and inventor of the Hybrid Pro Head Restraint, had the following to say, “The FIA gave us their vote of confidence in June 2010 with the approval* of our Hybrid Head Restraint. The Hybrid Pro system, currently our most popular device in SFI sanctioned racing and highly requested by the European Motorsports community, has now been accepted by the FIA and is listed in the technical list No. 36 “List of FIA approved* Frontal Head Restraint (FHR) systems, according to FIA standard 8858-2010. Our team at Simpson is extremely proud that the FIA gave their stamp of approval* to our head restraint designs. We believe we are giving racers more benefits and choices to consider for their safety. The Hybrid Pro and the Hybrid Pro Rage are comfortable Head Restraints that offer exceptional protection from multiple angles. The Hybrid family of head restraints offer lightweight protection and a sleek low profile design for easy entry and exit from the race car. Reduced body load during impact helps to get the driver back in the seat and ready to race.”
Chuck Davies, CEO for Simpson Performance Products adds, “Simpson continues to invest heavily in product development, research and testing. Improving our FIA product line is a key initiative. For five decades we have continuously associated our brand with the top echelon of Motorsports safety. The Simpson line of Head Restraints continues this heritage and tradition. We look forward to expanding globally and are prepared to answer the safety needs of the European racing community with quality products and customer support.”
