ARB Off Road Racing Series Contingency Partner Simpson have available a new state of the art head restraint.

Simpson’s new Hybrid frontal head restraints give Australian motorsport competitors a long-overdue choice in the marketplace – and they set new standards in comfort and protection.

The Hybrid is the first significant advance in FHRs since the original design appeared more than two decades ago, according to Greg Yard of Simpson Race Products.

“Now there’s a state-of-the-art alternative to the existing restraint,” Mr Yard said.

“The Hybrid takes the concept to the next level, with a design that transfers the bulk of the impact load to the wearer’s safety harness instead of the body.

“It avoids chest injuries that can be caused by a rigid yoke rotating forward in heavy frontal collisions.

“And it provides superior protection in side and angular crashes.”

“Another benefit is the compact size that eases entry and exit from the car, with less risk of tangling with other gear.

”The Hybrid is designed for maximum comfort and manoeuvrability, and can be custom-fitted for female competitors.”

The Hybrid range has been certified by major Australian and international motorsport controlling bodies worldwide, such as the FIA, CAMS, Speedway Australia and ANDRA.

CAMS Chief Executive Eugene Arocca has endorsed the use of FHRs throughout motorsport.

“Personally, if I was competing at an event I would use a frontal head restraint irrespective of the level of motor sport,” Mr Arocca said in a CAMS press release in April last year.

Even though the Hybrid was launched internationally only at the beginning of last year, leading competitors across a variety of categories have already switched to the new product.

This year’s Dakar Rally winner Nasser Al Attiyah is a Hybrid user, and Hybrids were used by the five factory Bentley team drivers at the recent Bathurst 12-hour race.

Current Australian Rally Champions Scott Pedder and Dale Moscatt, and Production Touring legend Bob Pearson have also ‘gone Hybrid’.

Prices for FIA-approved Hybrid models currently range from $899 for the entry level Hybrid Sport, to $1399 for the Hybrid Pro Carbon.

A limited range of SFI-certified Hybrids is also available.

Hybrids can be bought from Simpson Race Products in NSW, and distributors in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

A three-instalment payment plan is available for competitors on tight budgets, and those who want to try before they buy or only need a head restraint for the occasional event can ‘hire a Hybrid’.

“Simpson has been synonymous with motorsport safety equipment for more than 50 years, and the Hybrid Series continues that tradition,” Mr Yard said.
