MSA Homologation Extended Dates

MSA homologation extended dates

Motorsport UK has announced on the 8th March 2021 that it has extended the validity of certain FIA-homologated competition seats by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Motorsport UK Board, and its Technical Committee, made this decision as drivers have not been able to benefit from the full usable life of seats during 2020 and 2021 so seats that expired during these years will have a 12 month extension beyond the homologated life. 

The applicable Regulations are N6.13.6.1 and R48.10.6, and the extension applies specifically as follows:

  • Seats with an original homologation label detailing a manufacture date during 2013, which may be used for up to 8 years from the date on that original homologation label;

  • Seats with a ‘Not Valid After’ date (on the original homologation label) of 2019, which may be used until 31st December 2022.

The validity dates above take into account the additional two years’ use over the FIA homologation validity already afforded to seats used in National Events in these disciplines.

The date of implementation of the above Exemption (Regulation A2.4) is immediate and will cease on 31 December 2022.
