From Race to Road Safety
Having supplied tools for the IndyCar safety team since 1990, Holmatro has become a leader in manufacturing rescue equipment to assist in the quick and safe extrication of race drivers following incidents on track. Holmatro’s cordless, compact and powerful Pentheon tools are ideal for the motor sport environment, where drivers need to be extricated from carbon fibre monocoques and high-strength roll-cage structures. Over the years it has been Holmatro’s goal to translate their learnings in racing into innovative rescue tools that raise the level of global post-crash response.
Tim Malyon, FIA Safety Director, said: “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.”
Harm Hermans, Holmatro CEO, 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 & consultancy.”
