Atlanta, Georgia (September 8, 2009) – HANS Performance Products has been granted a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction and expedited discovery in a suit against Impact Racing Products. The SFI Foundation’s motion to become a party in HANS’ action against Impact has also been granted. The orders relate to counterfeit HANS Post Anchors that have been discovered at the track in recent weeks.

Impact is also required to preserve all related products and business records to help identify the source of the counterfeit parts.
