FIM Racing Homologation Programme (FRHP) - New technical control for helmets

As of 1 January 2020, the use of helmets approved to FIM homologation standards is mandatory in all FIM Endurance World Championship and Endurance World Cup races. A homologated helmet is identified by the FIM FRHPhe (FIM Racing Homologation Programme) label. The use of these helmets will be mandatory at the next round of the FIM EWC: the 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans on 18 and 19 April.

The FIM, which has until now referred solely to existing international safety standards for road-approved helmets, rolled out a specific certification programme for its competitions in 2019. The programme incorporates a new test and more stringent performance criteria for helmets used in racing, over and above the standard requirements for road-approved helmets. The programme is based on data from recent scientific research simulating the shape of the human head more closely.

In particular, the FIM FRHPhe-01 homologation protocol incorporates a new oblique (45°) impact test, as well as tests performed at higher speed, with more impact locations and improved impact-absorption capacity to enhance the level of protection against brain injury in a crash. The headforms now have a silicone coating that mimic the thickness of human skin, and the impact zones have been revised to reflect the asphalt surface’s coefficient of friction.

Manufacturers applying for FIM FRHPhe-01 racing helmet homologation are required to have their helmet samples undergo this test protocol at the impact laboratory of the Aragon Institute of Engineering Research (University of Zaragoza) in Spain. Each size of an individual helmet model must be homologated separately, and submitted together with any accessories intended to be used in competition.

Homologated helmets are identified by a FIM FRHPhe-01 label sewn to the chinstrap alongside the road-approved homologation certificate.

The use of the helmets will be required during the technical checks at the 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans in April 2020.

The FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) is an exciting championship in which both the motorcycles and riders are sorely put to the test in races lasting from 8 hours to 24 hours.

Having Eurosports Events as promotor since 2015, the world championship has witnessed a substantial increase in both media coverage, with races being broadcast worldwide, and race attendance figures, as a result of renewed interest in the sport. The championship is also attracting bigger, more international rider line-ups, with an ever-increasing number of new, high-level teams and riders signing up to compete in the FIM EWC each year.

The hottest and the latest news, twitter, facebook posts of the championship and from each participating team can be found at FIM EWC website and each channel.
