Safe Health Practices On and Off the Racetrack
We hope everyone continues to practice safe habits established to prevent the spread of COVID, like mask wearing, frequent hand washing, etc. As racing is slowly returning, and we can once again engage in the sport we love, we should give some thought to staying safer there too.
Before you get suited up and back in the car, we thought it might be good time to look at the list of 10 Driver Safety Protection Tips we put together, and check out what Dr. Terry Trammell had to say about protection from fire.

“Racing Goes Safer Board Member
Fights COVID in France”
“It is great to see that our medical team in the Le Mans race is so much involved in this fight against the COVID”
– Dr. Meistelman
One of our longtime Stand 21 Safety Foundation Board Members is Dr. Claude Meistelman, who is most familiar to us as DCMO medical director at LeMans, CMO for the Paris Grand Prix Formula E race, and motorsports researcher / lecturer. However, with the COVID -19 crisis he is totally focused on his duties in intensive care at the Brabois university Hospital, Université de Lorraine, France.
RACING GOES SAFER TAKES ON COVID-19
STAND 21, WITH IT'S EXPERIENCE IN SOURCING TEXTILES, SEWING, AND ASSEMBLING ITEMS LIKE DRIVING SUITS, HAS SWIFTLY GONE INTO THE PRODUCTION OF FACE MASKS
For the last decade, improving racer safety practices has been the goal of the Stand 21 Safety Foundation, as it can be a matter of life or death.
Now we are facing another life and death situation with COVID-19. However, the danger of spreading infection can be reduced with safer public health practices.
Looking at the lessons we teach in our Racing Goes Safer safety seminars, it is interesting to note how they can also be applied to dealing with the current pandemic.
The Racing Goes Safer Foundation hosts several free seminars each year for racers in all forms of motorsport.
These seminars are paid for in large part, by Yves Morizot, founder and President of Stand 21 Racewear. The education and mission of the foundation wouldn't be possible if it weren't for the contributions from racers and people like you who are just as passionate about increasing motorsport safety for all...
