Re: 200 MPH Achievers

I think the "must be record" is designed to add some exclusivity to classes where the speeds regularly go over 200mph, plenty of classes in the US need 250+ to get a red hat (actually, can we get a hat?) Though honestly I'm biased as a member of our 200mph club. (maybe I'll buy a hat and a texta :m...

I thought HANS devices were to stop the head moving forward in a frontal impact preventing fractures to the base of the skull/spine?
if that's the case, what are you going to frontal impact into, the ground?

For mine, the biggest problem is trying to follow the DLRA rule book and the RTA rego rule book at the same time, it's so much less constrictive if you forget about the fastest registered, and just go for fastest! DLRA rules are for safety for you, RTA rules are alot more 'diverse' and often seem co...
