HANS Performance Products partners with FIA Institute's Industry Liaison Group

Atlanta, Georgia (October 6, 2006) - HANS Performance Products, the most respected leaders in head and neck restraint systems technologies, was the only U.S. based racing safety products manufacturer to participate in the first meetings of the FIA Institute's Industry Liaison Group last week.

The FIA Institute brought together leading racing safety companies from around the world in a series of workshops designed to disseminate best practices throughout the industry. Topics discussed included circuit safety, head and neck restraint technologies, and the development of new international standards for performance seats and youth helmets.

HANS Performance Products CEO Mark Stiles said, "Having an open discourse with the FIA Institute over the past few years has made it easier for us to ensure that racers get the best possible performance from their HANS Device. Their independently minded expert researchers have help create specifications that have challenged us to invent pragmatic robust solutions to enhance racer safety in subtle but important ways."

As HANS Performance Products continues to educate the U.S. market about the benefits of head and neck restraints, the FIA continues to take the leadership position in the rest of the world. Mark continued, "HANS Devices remain the only head and neck restraint that has the confidence of the FIA. In fact, they specify it by name in all the major series that they sanction worldwide such as Formula 1 and World Rally."

Mark also added, "Having the opportunity to share ideas with the FIA Institute's experts and the foremost manufacturers of racing safety products from around the world such as Arai, Bell Europe, OMP, Racetech, Recaro, Sabelt, Schroth, Sparco, and Stand21, is a unique experience. Through these workshops, HANS Performance Products has gained valuable insight which will help us continue to offer HANS Devices that lead the industry in robust performance and comfort."
