PCA has implemented new rules for HPDE car harness sytems please read below:

If the participant chooses to install a five, six, or seven point driving harness, several changes to the automobile must be made to create a safe occupant restraint system. Harnesses must:

  • Include an antisubmarine strap.
  • Five, six or seven point SFI or FIA approved competition harnesses are required and must be properly mounted in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. Belts must be replaced no later than five years after the date of manufacture. It is left to the owners discretion as to whether the belts should be replaced more frequently than required.
  • Have all harness attachment points secured/mounted in an approved manner consistent with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Be used in conjunction with a seat that has the supplied routing holes for the shoulder and antisubmarine belts.
  • Have the shoulder straps mounted in an approved manner consistent with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • The participant should BE AWARE that the addition of such a seat and harness system results in the occupant being fastened upright in the vehicle. Therefore, in order to have a COMPLETE SYSTEM, a properly padded roll bar or roll cage is recommended, and an approved head and neck restraint device is required. A head and neck restraint device certified as meeting the standards of either SFI 38.1 or FIA 8858 or its successor is required.  The use of such a harness system without roll protection and a head and neck restraint device may result in an unsafe environment and is not a COMPLETE SYSTEM. Roll bars or cages and their installation must meet PCA Club Racing Standards.

When using a head and neck restraint device, it is recommended that one follow the SFI Recertification process for the head and neck restraint device. The instructions for this can be found on the device. Additionally, it is recommended that the straps be replaced every five years.

The SFI standard requires seat belt to be replaced every two years based on date of manufacture. The FIA standard requires the seat belt to be replaced every five years based on date of manufacture. It is left to the driver’s  discretion as to whether the belts should be replaced more frequently than required.

Four-point systems are not allowed, EXCEPT as noted below, in Porsches because of the integrated headrest supplied by the factory. In addition to the standard SFI and/or FIA-approved five- and/or six-point system, a four-point system is allowed in non-Porsches that meet the following requirements:

  • Meets the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 209.
  • Attaches to the factory seat belt mounting points.
  • Each belt is designed to work in a specific vehicle and that vehicle tag must be attached to the belt system.

Four Point Belt Exception: Schroth has developed a four point harness for specific newer Porsche models only. These models are the 918 Spyder, 2015 GT3, 2016 Cayman GT4, 2016 Boxster Spyder, and 2015 GT3RS, and these models must also be fitted with the Full Bucket Seat Option P11 as provided by Porsche. The belts are Federal Motor Vehicle Standard 209, and as such they are deemed street legal and approved by federal seat belt safety regulations.  These belts also have labeling confirming the intended use for these specified Porsche models.

Tech Sheets can be downloaded from the Carrera Region website https://carreraregionpca.org/event-registration/.  Once at the Carrera Region website, scroll down and click on the "Tech Sheet" hyperlink.  Tech Sheets will be in your event packet and will be available at the track as a further convenience. Tech Sheets must be completed and turned in to the Event Registration Desk before you go on the track on Saturday or Sunday.
