Helmet homologation withdrawal
Wednesday 04 March, 2020
The helmets below no longer comply with the FIA 8859-2015 standard and should be replaced immediately.
The FIA Motorsport Safety Department has advised the cancellation of three different helmets previously approved under the 8859-2015 Standard due to safety reasons.
The three helmets to be withdrawn with immediate effect are the NINGBO HD POWERSPORTS SAFETY PRODUCTS HD128.F and HD315.F models, as well as the OMP GP8, a rebranded version of the HD128.F model.
Motorsport Australia members must note that as these helmets no longer comply with the FIA 8859-2015 standard, they can no longer be used at any Motorsport Australia event and members should look into seeking a replacement helmet immediately.
