New Fire Extinguisher Regulations

15 February 2018

Regulation K3 in the MSA Yearbook has been amended to require fire extinguishers to be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines, or every 24 months, whichever is sooner.

This regulation change was ratified by Motor Sports Council for 1st January 2018 implementation. Unfortunately, there was an error in the rule changes notification published last October which indicated a date of implementation of 1st January 2019. The MSA has confirmed that this regulation is per the MSA Yearbook effective as of 1st January 2018.

This has important implications for all competitors so please pass this information on to your teams and drivers. Cars not meeting the new requirements will fail scrutineering and not be permitted to race.

Any queries should be directed to the Technical Department at the MSA (tel. 01753 765000).
