Homologation withdrawn for three helmets

The FIA Motorsport Safety Department and Motorsport Australia have advised the cancellation of three different helmets previously approved under the 8859-2015 Standard due to safety reasons.

The three helmets to be withdrawn with immediate effect are the Ningbo HD Powersports Safety Products HD128.F and HD315.F (open face helmet not approved for karting) models, as well as the OMP GP8, a rebranded version of the HD128.F model.

Karting Australia members must note that as these helmets no longer comply with the FIA 8859-2015 standard, they can no longer be used at any Karting Australia event and members should investigate seeking a replacement helmet immediately.
