Standard 8865 has already been implemented for WRC cars running in the FIA WRC. It will apply to the following categories for 2017:  T1 cars running in FIA cross-country events; Super 2000 Rally RRC (Regional Rally Car), R5 and RGT cars running in the FIA WRC. As from 2018 Standard 8865 will also apply to GT3 cars. We are awaiting confirmation that as from 2018 it will also be implemented for all cars running in FIA cross-country events.

Light, Compact and Unique

With all this in mind and taking into account feedback from our customers, we have designed, developed and tested a compact one cylinder fire suppression system offering a highly efficient product, maximising the space and weight saving. Our customers told us that they wanted an effective, affordable suppression system for the most common of fuels – unleaded petrol. FEV have developed products for other fuel types and these will be launched in due course.

On the engine side where the temperature of a fire could be extremely high, our FX G-TEC gas is very good at suppressing the fire very quickly whilst at the same time decreasing the temperature of the fire to prevent the risk of re-ignition. On the cockpit side our system will also suppress the fire very quickly. During development of our product very careful attention has been taken to ensure that the suppressing agent is safe for all occupants whilst not compromising the effectiveness of the system.

Components have been sourced to cope with the very high temperatures and to deal with the very robust and demanding environment of racing. The control box whilst not only being robust has also been designed to be water resistant, with electrical connectors IP67 rated and high temperature rated wiring. The electrical circuitry has features to allow a much longer battery lifetime and circuit tests to find if there are any anomalies.

Our system’s FXG-TEC3300R, FXG-TEC3300R3, FX-GTEC2400R3  are all available, and we would ask that anyone interested should please contact us on +44 1243 555566 or email sales@f-e-v.co.uk to find out more and we would also be happy to answer any questions you may have – thank you.
