Bryant-Meisner Gets Podium Result in Opening Round

It goes without saying that safety is a very important issue when it comes to race cars. The safety of the driver is of utmost importance in such situations. Just ask John Bryant-Meisner, a Swedish race car driver who had to miss an entire season because of a crash. It could have been a lot worse if it weren’t for the safety equipment in play though.

It doesn’t take much for people to get ready for the race track. Here are a few things to keep in mind while preparing to race:

Make sure you’re using all of the right safety equipment. Also, ensure that the equipment is all in good condition. This means that it shouldn’t have any dents, holes or chips. If you want it to work properly, it has to be in excellent condition.

Underneath the safety gear, you need to be wearing comfortable clothes. Don’t forget to wear ankle socks too. Unless you’re 100% comfortable, you are not going to enjoy yourself on the race track.

The fire suit is perhaps the most important piece of gear you will wear when race car driving. There are quite a few different types on offer. Choose whichever one suits you the most. With the suit, you should also get yourself fireproof racing shoes. Don’t forget to tuck your laces into your shoes so that they don’t get caught in the race car pedals.

Lastly, wear the racing helmet. These are very important for race car drivers since it protects the brain, skull, and neck. Make sure it is pushed down completely and the bottom rope is secured. This will make sure the helmet doesn’t come off during an accident.

Keep these things in mind and you should be okay if, god forbid, you get involved in a car crash while racing.
