The club has been advised of the following information from a recent MSA briefing to Scrutineers:

1) Scrutineers have been told to ignore the additional height that is provided by any roll hoop extension. Crash helmet clearances should be measured to the original roll hoop, ignoring any extension. Scrutineers have been instructed to enforce this rigorously.

2) Given the additional ROPS scrutiny it is likely that scrutineers will be on the lookout for any drivers who appear to be sitting high in the car without adequate crash helmet clearance. Do check that your helmet does not exceed the line from front bulkhead to the top of the (original) roll hoop.

The above applies to all types of racing cars and clubmans cars. 2017 will see rigorous checks that racing car ROPS conform to either the Blue Book dimensions (diameters and material thickness) or that the ROPS design is certificated by the MSA. Many manufacturers are getting their designs tested and registered with the MSA. If in doubt consult your race car manufacturer or get in touch with your Competition Secretary for advice and support.
