Frontal Head Restraints - or HANS Devices - HANS Posts
There has been a query as to whether HANS posts can be fitted to a helmet which has not been pre-drilled by the helmet manufacturer. For the purpose of clarification we have asked Alister Poulter's opinion:
"If the helmet is not pre drilled by the manufacture upon purchase it is not designed to take HANS posts."
Alister did not elaborate on this, but reading section 6 of http://www.fia.com/sites/default/files/regulation/file/8858-2010_Frontal_Head_Restraint_0.pdf it is clear why this is the case.
The documents referred to in our previous piece on HANS devices may prove of interest to anybody with further interest in the technicalities and legalities of HANS devices.
