Driver suit alert from SFI via VMC
The Vintage Motorsports Council (VMC) provides more than licensing to vintage drivers. Another membership benefit is access to the SFI Foundation via the VMC's group SFI subscription. The SFI Foundation is the organization that issues and administers standards for specialty/performance automotive and racing equipment, including driver suits. VMC sent the following alert to member organizations, including John Hertsgaard, VSCR Competition Chair:

"SFI sent out a warning about race suits which 'incorporate an outer layer of material that is neither flame nor heat resistant, and will melt at relatively low temperatures. These suits are commonly identified by the nature of their graphics, which are achieved by a process called dye sublimation."
