NZDRA encourage all racers to share the benefits of safety equipment to help maintain a safe environment for all competitors supporters and spectators.

There should never be a competetive advantage gained by safety equipment so there should be no restriction to share this information with each other.

If you have equipment that works well, can get discounts by bulk purchase, wanting to promote an item or let anyone know about equipment failures then this is where we can help keep everyone informed.

Please send details to NZDRA

 New Alert added 21.11.2014

Hi All,

It’s that time again where some low life’s are making it hard for us people who sleep straight in bed at night.

Enclosed is the notices of removals etc for Zeal race suits sold here by Vortex Racewear (unaware of anyone else selling this brand) Power on Racewear UK (unaware of any suits in NZ) and Impact Racing USA (sold by Racer Products/Autoquip), along with other product removals and warnings for other suits and neck restraints.

Some of the above suits are being allowed to be used at club level by MSNZ, an decision I am strongly refuting and I have asked MSNZ to advise every license holder in NZ that these suits have been removed from the FIA and SFI lists and are ultimately not fit for the purpose they were bought for.

Not only is this a problem in itself, a few resellers around the place are having a field day heat bonding prints onto suits as well as embroidering through the entire garment which is not allowed. These people are effecting sales from you and I and given they have no facility to do these forms of correct decoration to a suit are pushing people to do this the incorrect way.

We need to inform customers that if these items are cheap, there is a reason for this and there are safety reasons and rules why you can’t glue logos to a suit or embroider through all layers.

Below is info regarding the counterfeit belt issue in which Sparco, Sabelt and Takata belts that were being offered from China.

It appears there are people greedy enough here who have no regard for the safety of others will offer these products and services to the unassuming customer.
