As I start to get more serious about safety at the track (I'll be putting in my six point harness as soon as I can find a seat that I actually fit in), I have become increasing concerned about spinal cord injuries. As soon as I get that elusive seat, I will be getting a HANS device. Getting in a frontal collision doesn't concern me as much as spinning out, catching an edge, and rolling the car at my track. My concern is that my neck could snap to the side. A HANS does not protect against that. So I created a removable halo out of CNC brackets, EMT tubing, and carbon fiber. I think that this is really a great idea for someone that wants to cover all of their bases when it comes to safety. If you look at any large racing league, they use halos to protect the drivers against side impact. I also created a halo in pure bent EMT without the carbon fiber but with dual tubes of EMT on each side. I'm just trying to decide which one I like better. Let me know what you think.
