Motor City Racing Promotions Further Develops Safety Program
Rochester Hills, MI (Friday, December 14, 2018) - Since the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show has returned to Indianapolis, management with Motor City Racing Promotions (MCRP) make the annual trip to Indiana Convention Center for the pivotal motorsports industry trade show. All departments of MCRP made connections, learned valuable information and furthered their education within the industry. Again, this year, the safety department took on as much as anyone.
MCRP prides themselves on having a fully equipped, fully staffed and trained safety team on hand at all MCRP promoted events, including American Ethanol Late Model and Modified Tour races, along with select special events throughout the year. MCRP Safety Officials are SFI Foundation Inc. Short Track Incident Response Certified Officials, who continue to seek education on protecting the drivers they serve. Four members of the MCRP Safety division attended Friday’s International Council of Motorsports Science Race Track Safety Program at Dallara IndyCar Factory.
The day began with officials attending education seminars covering injury and illness patterns, respiratory protection for motorsports firefighting and equipment advances in rescue tools. Officials also participated in hands on practical drills including helmet and frontal head restraint removal, spinal control and immobilization during driver extrication, hydraulic cutting of chassis roll cages, driver roll over experience and more. The day finished with officials watching the Canadian Motorsports Response Team and IndyCar Safety Team in practical demonstrations.
