Seat Belt / Harness Expiration Updates

Image
  To ChampCar Members:  It was brought to our attention by our tech staff that the conformance labels on SFI certified racing harnesses are transitioning from a Date of Manufacture to a Date of Expiration.  The Board of Directors did extensive research and found that other organizations including WRL, AER, USAC, SCCA, NASA, etc. either have never allowed extended use of SFI certified harnesses or have recently changed their rules to align with the SFI Date of Expiration labels, which expire after 2 years of use.  ChampCar aims to comply with SFI and align with industry trends, so we are recommending that any SFI harnesses be in date, regardless of conformance tag style.   In order to allow members time to comply, we will begin REQUIRING all SFI certified harnesses used in ChampCar display an in-date conformance label ON July 1st, 2022.  ChampCar will be making a mid-year revision to our BCCR to reflect this change.   This change does not affect FIA certified harnesses.   If
