GREENPOWER F24/F24+ TECHNICAL BULLETIN - MARCH 2017

22 March 2018

Author: Steve Newman

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR F24/F24+ COMPETITORS

We have recently been asked to advise on the use of HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) as a material for F24/F24+ bodywork.

This has been reviewed and it has been concluded that HIPS offers inadequate protection and is not considered compliant with regulation T7.2’s requirement for the use of a rigid material, (Ref: 2018 Technical & Sporting Regulations) for use in areas defined by T7.1.

HIPS may be used outside those areas covered by T7.1.

This decision has been taken in the interests of driver safety.

Should you require further help or advice regarding this matter or general build assistance please contact:
