  • Need to borrow safety gear for October race...




    Is anyone willing to allow my 'race team ' to use your firesuit, gloves, shoes for an endurance race in October? Its crazy to go buy all this stuff to use for one weekend. Details on the race below. Here's what we need:

    - Firesuits - Size XL, Size L (we will swap them when changing drivers if necessary)
    - Shoes - Size 10.5 (not sure of sizes for the other guys, but let me know what you've got)
    - Gloves - 2 or 3 pair
    - Helmet w/ clip setup for NexGen harness - needs to fit my big bald head

    The guy in the yellow shirt in the photo below will need the same gear in addition to me. The guy on the right has his own, plus 2 helmets we can use. Just looking for another for a spare.

    The event: www.24hoursoflemons.com at GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, MI on Oct. 13 - 15.

    If you have some gear laying around and are willing to help out, email me (blkswmp@gmail.com) or text (419.266.2897). All gear will be returned in same condition it started in. Compensation will be given for any damaged or lost equipment.

    Lemons Safety Regs:
    3.B MANDATORY SAFETY WEAR & NECK PROTECTION
    • 3.B.1 Driver’s Helmet. Undamaged, full-face Type SA helmet, Snell SA2010 or newer, mandatory. FIA 8860-2000 certification is also acceptable. No open-face or hybrid helmets allowed. Complete, closable, working visors must be intact and in place. Type M (in other words, any motorcycle helmets) and other non-SA helmets not allowed. Don’t know if your helmet qualifies? Gently peel back the inner padding to find the Type stamp; if it doesn’t have an original, orange-letter, hologram-backed “SA” sticker, you’re boned.
    • 3.B.2 Neck Brace/Helmet Support. All drivers must wear SFI 38.1-rated or FIA 8858-rated head-and-neck protection. Multiple drivers can share a single unit, but fit, adjustment, mounting, and connections must be correct for all drivers. Foam collars (and all other non-SFI- or FIA-rated devices) are no longer allowed.
    • 3.B.3 Fire-Retardant Clothing. Full SFI 3.2/A- or FIA 8856-2000-certified fire-retardant driving suits must be worn by all drivers at all times while inside the car. If using a single-layer SFI 3.2/A1 or 3.2/A3 suit, driver must also wear fire-retardant SFI- or FIA-certified long underwear. Multilayer suits rated SFI 3.2/A5 or higher are highly recommended and may be worn without long underwear. Fire-retardant FIA- or SFI-rated racing gloves and shoes are required. And yeah, while they may very well be superior, military-spec or firefighter suits are not FIA- or SFI-rated, so we can’t accept them.
    • 3.B.4 Socks and Other Undergarments. Socks, shirts, and other undergarments made of synthetic material (including nylon, orlon, Spandex, etc.) will melt to the skin in a fire and are strictly forbidden. Fire-retardant (Nomex, Carbon-X, or equivalent) racing socks are mandatory.

          Thanks, man. Rich Farmer was kind enough to offer to use some of his stuff, but still need a few things. No point in buying all this stuff for what may amount to one weekend on the track.
