SAFETY APPAREL GUIDE S CORE International's commitment to safety includes informing teams and off-road racing enthusiasts of the best practices and latest products that can improve overall safety while traveling to Mexico, pre-running or during a SCORE International race. One of the areas touched on during the SCORE Safety Workshop Presented by Stand 21, was on the importance of proper safety apparel. While all drivers, co-drivers, and navigators are required to wear FIA or SFI approved racing suits, may pit-crew and other team members are not properly protected. Another subject that was addressed was the lack of flame retardant underwear being used by competitors. According to safety experts, heat plays a major factor to the reasons why some racers and teams will not wear flame retardant underwear, gloves, socks and shoes. Although it can definitely get hot driving in 100-plus degree heat, wearing protective clothing is a must. In an effort to inform racers on what's available in desert racing apparel, for both drivers and pit crew, we've compiled some of the latest products from manufacturers such as Impact Racing, Stand 21, Simpson Racing and Alpinestars that offer improved protection against fire, while maintaining a high level of comfort.
