What’s Your Life And Well-Being Worth?
This will be pretty direct. Hill climbs, like many motorsports
events, entail risk. You sign a waiver, and you’re basically on your
own. Even if you don’t drive beyond your abilities, such as mechanical
failures, like broken axles, can happen. In an instant, you can change
from a driver into a “passenger,” with no control over where you might
Many organizations, such as SCCA and CACC, are requiring a HANS or a like device of a different manufacturer, for motorsports events. My personal opinion is that it will be only a matter of time that NHA requires these devices as well.
Yes, we’re talking about a $600 plus expense. But, what if you went off course and sustained serious injuries, which might have been prevented by using a neck restraint device? Do you want to play with your kids/grandkids from a wheelchair? Or worse? Not if you can help it. In reality, this is pretty cheap insurance.
Do you buy a “Starbucks” at the drive through every day? Kick that habit, prepare your coffee in a thermos, and you can probably save enough in less than a year, to buy the device of your choice.
We have been lucky so far.
