Forcefield on track with the Ron Haslam Race School

Forcefield Body Armour are pleased to be an official partner to the Honda Ron Haslam Race School where riders are able to experience the thrills of the Donington Park circuit, one of the finest motor racing facilities in Europe, on board specially prepared Honda’s that range from the entry level CBR125R to the latest Honda CBR1000RR superbikes with expert tuition from experienced instructors, a must do for any biker!

As well as participants of the school being able to borrow and wear a Pro L2K back protector for their time on track the R&D department at Forcefield are able to use the school for extra product testing which is exactly what happened last week when a couple of the team visited Donington to put some of the new armour through its paces.

In what turned out to be a typically British spring day it rained heavily throughout and by the time the team arrived Ann Haslam, wife of Ron and the driving force behind the school told of the nine riders who had already crashed out of the morning session in the tricky conditions and all of whom thankfully walked away unharmed, a great endorsement of the Pro L2K back protectors. The test team managed to stay upright to assess the comfort, flexibility and breathability of some exciting new pieces of armour.

Commenting on the Forcefield armour available at the school Ann Haslam said “The back protectors prove really popular with the riders as very often it is the one bit of kit they don’t have themselves and we want to be able to offer the safest experience we can, as I say to riders I wouldn’t let Leon (Ron and Ann’s son and current World Superbike racer) ride without a back protector! The pupils always comment on how comfortable they are and we are confident in the protection they offer even if they have been involved in an off due to the repeat performance technology”
