The FIA has announced that Holmatro, a supplier of hydraulic rescue equipment, will remain as an FIA Official Supplier and will continue to supply its latest technologies to FIA club members for an additional year.
Through the agreement, Holmatro will work with the FIA Safety Department to ensure the advanced equipment is available to local crews to deliver the highest level of safety standards. National Sporting Authorities will also have direct access to Holmatro rescue equipment for their racing series through the FIA.
Holmatro’s proprietary rescue equipment aids in the quick and safe extrication of drivers following accidents at race circuits; its cordless Pentheon tools enable drivers to be taken out of roll cages and carbon-fiber monocoques.
“We are pleased to extend our relationship with Holmatro for the supply of state-of-the-art rescue equipment as part of the FIA’s ongoing efforts to deliver the highest-possible safety standards in motorsport,” said Nuno Costa, director, FIA Safety Department.
Harm Hermans, CEO, Holmatro, said, “Holmatro is proud to remain official supplier to the FIA and bring our rescue equipment to circuits worldwide. We believe in constant improvement and innovation when it comes to making the world safer, healthier and more productive, and this is a further demonstration of the quality of our world-class tools and extrication training and consultancy.”
