For the 2018 season the MSA blue book features a significant regulation change which effects fire extinguishers fitted into competition vehicles. To directly quote the blue book ‘All extinguishers must be serviced in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines, or every 24 months, whichever is sooner.’ The purpose of this article is to clarify this regulation change, outline the implications for the systems already in service and offer alternatives to competitors who have system which are out of date.
The new rain light is machined from aluminium billet and emits high intensity beams from a series of low energy encapsulated LEDs. The light can be selected in either constant or flashing mode and is suitable for use on all vehicles - single seater, sportscar or touring.
The new rain light will be exhibited at all the major motorsport shows and will be launched at PMWE in Cologne in November 2013. Sube Sports of Huntingdon Beach, California, will be showing it at the PRI show in Indianapolis in December and Lifeline themselves will have it featured on their stand at Autosport International in January 2014.
