New Fire Systems for Micro Sprint Race Cars
SPA Technique has introduced a New Manual/Automatic Fire System that is perfect for Micro Sprint Racing cars.
The first system certified to the newest SFI 17.3 specification for open wheel-front engine cars, i.e., Micro Sprints, Sprint Car, and Midgets, comes with SPA Technique’s patented AM Block. This block has a Pull for Fire lanyard, that serves as a manual override for the driver, if they wish to activate the system before the heat gets to where the block is mounted.
The system utilizes 4Fire Universal as the suppression agent. 4Fire
presents as an AFFF(aqueous film forming foam), which blankets everything
it touches. This means it’s cooling while also forming a boundary
layer, to help prevent re-ignition. It also offers quick fire-out times on par
with clean agents (gases).
