MIAMI, FL (March 27, 2018) – The Motorsport Safety Foundation has partnered with leading racing safety equipment company, MOMO, to assist the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) in promoting driver safety throughout the 2018 race season.
The Motorsport Safety Foundation has secured nearly $20,000 in certificates for SFI and FIA-approved MOMO racing gloves, boots or even a racing suit to be awarded at the discretion of the SCCA Chiefs of Tech at SCCA’s seven remaining 2018 Hoosier Super Tour races across the United States.
“Many racers dedicate their resources around what makes the car go fast, but we all know that the most important factor in winning races is the driver,” said Scot Elkins, Chief Operating Officer of the Motorsport Safety Foundation. “With the right safety gear, a driver performs at their peak. That is why we are excited to partner with MOMO, the leading brand in motorsports performance and safety, in our program supporting SCCA driver safety.”
“Having fun with cars is what SCCA Road Racing is all about, and doing that as safely as possible is our priority,” said Deanna Flanagan, SCCA’s Director of Road Racing. “We’re thrilled that the Motorsport Safety Foundation and MOMO share our commitment to protecting drivers while behind the wheel. With their generous support, our SCCA Event Tech Inspectors will be able to help drivers continue to realize their passion with safe race gear.”
