7 steps to the safety of a race driver

Posted by LauraDerb on January 4th, 2021

When preparing for a car ride, there can be many steps to ensure the safety of the driver. In just 7 steps, anyone can be properly customized, safe and ready to use. Racing is a dangerous sport, so it is extremely important that all steps are performed seriously and done correctly. Safety is the first priority for any racer, so these seven steps are seen as extremely important for drivers.

Proper equipment for use

Make sure that all the right safety equipment is available and in good condition. Good condition is considered to have no holes, no dents, chips, etc. For safety equipment to work effectively, it must be in the correct condition. The right equipment to have is a fire suit of your choice, a racing helmet, racing gloves, racing shoes and a HANS safety equipment. Once you have all the equipment, they are ready to be geared up.

Comfortable clothes

Under all safety equipment, wear comfortable clothing. It can vary depending on the person's gender or what the specific person likes. For women, it is usually leggings, shorts or spankers and a tank top or t-shirt. For men it is boxers or shorts and a wife beater or t-shirt. Make sure you also wear ankle socks. Make sure you feel 100% comfortable because it gets very hot under all Sports news.

Fire suit

Now that we are all ready to go, we can start putting on the safety equipment. The first safety equipment is the fire suit. There are many different types and varieties of fire suits, but it again depends on the specific taste of the person. There are one-piece and two-piece fire suits, so make sure all zippers on all parts of the fire suit are completely zippers so there is no room for error. The more covered by fire-retardant equipment, the better the chances of safety.


Now that the fire suit is lit, put on the fireproof racing shoes and tie them. When tying the shoes, make sure the laces are tucked into the shoe so that it does not get stuck on any of the pedals inside the race car. Also, make sure that the shoes are not tied too tightly so that the circulation is not cut off and not too loose so that the shoes do not also fall off. Pull the trouser legs of your fire suit over your ankles so that there is no space between the shoes and the fire suit.


It's time to put on the racing helmet now. Helmets are an extremely important necessity for racing drivers because of the protection it gives drivers skull, brain and neck. Put the helmet on so that it is completely pushed down, and fasten the bottom rope like a belt. This prevents the helmet from falling off its head in an accident.

HANS device

There are a few different devices that do the same or the same thing as a HIS, but HIS is certainly the most dependent. A HANS device is a device that attaches to the back of your helmet and sits over your shoulders and the back of your neck so we can not move your head very well side by side. The HANS unit is important for the driver's neck and back safety. These devices are expensive but well worth the investment.


Almost done! The only thing left to do is put on the racing gloves. Not only do the gloves protect the skin on the hands, but also protect the hands from the grip of the steering wheel, leaving blisters and sometimes sores.
