So for 2016 onwards, everyone competing in Rallying has to wear a HANS Device. Is that good? Well, as most things both Yes AND No.
The Good Points are all based on Safety, so I guess you can't really argue with the decision because when you know that you are putting yourself in danger anything that makes you safer has to be a good thing.
The Bad Points as usual are based on Money. Unfortunately, not only do you have to buy a HANS device but most competitors will also have to buy a new helmet.
There is no arguing against the safety benefits of wearing a HANS Device.
