The Fire Safety Stick is the must-have accessory in all branches of UK motorsport!
It’s already saved many many competitors’ vehicles, often where the situations have meant that the traditional extinguishers being used by the competitors or marshalls have been unable to extinguish the fire. Especially in Rally but in other sectors too, they are carrying the Fire Safety Stick in addition to the handhelds required by MSUK/FIA. Just look at some of the real-life examples where the Fire Safety Stick saved the cars from total loss.
Fire Safety in Rally & Motorsport
Whether you’re an occasional track dayer or a hardened enthusiast who travels the country to the great variety of circuits the UK has to offer. The conditions which rally and motorsport vehicles are subjected to are the most severe and the risk of fires is great.
Especially for rally cars, the FIA states that one plumbed-in and one handheld extinguisher are required. Currently, the Fire Safety Stick hasn’t, as yet, been certified as a direct replacement for the required handheld extinguisher. However, the FIA are aware of the Fire Safety Stick and has been very impressed with its many successes, so much so that they contacted the Fire Safety Stick team with a view to full testing and approval for all worldwide motorsports. Of course, this is not going to happen overnight. Many competitors having seen its effectiveness have chosen to carry the Fire Safety Stick in addition to the required handheld, and are electing to use the Fire Safety Stick as the first line choice – since in the various situations (location of the fire on the vehicle), it’s proven to be more efficient, plus doesn’t cause any further damage.
Unlike traditional extinguishers, the Fire Safety Stick has durability like no other, you can drop it, drill it, cut it and still extinguish it.
