Sure this has been covered loads, but for class A6 , road going Westfield, is HANS mandatory currently ? Just before spending a fortune on new helmet etc.

Thanks

No, a Hans device is not required in road going classes.

An FIA approved FHR device, fitted in accordance with FIA regulations is mandatory for all drivers with the exception of Period Defined Vehicles, Road-going Series Production Cars and Road-going Specialist Production Cars.

As Road going cars only require a 3-point seatbelt, a FHR would simply not work. However, if you have fitted a harness, I'd recommend a FHR, it may save you a lot of pain.
I've now lost count of how many racers have commented after a hefty shunt how much they feel the FHR stopped their head moving.

I 've worn the simpsons FHR for the last couple of years in my Caterham 7. Paid for itself last year at Forrestburn after a wee roll :D A very sensible investment in my opinion.

Almost everyone who has a hefty shunt praises how they noticed the FHR protecting their neck. We've had a few moans from drivers when they were introduced for Racing, but lots of positive feedback from those who had occasion to test their effectiveness.
