Heads up for anybody Racing in 2018.

Fire extinguishers must have been serviced within the last 2 years.

Fire Extinguishers
Existing vehicles competing prior to 1st January
2019 may comply with the following until
1st January 2022. New build vehicles from
1st January 2019 must comply with Appendix 3.
3. A fire extinguisher/extinguishing system must be
carried on all vehicles, the minimum requirement being
that the system be charged with one of the permitted
extinguishants and be operable by the driver whilst
normally seated either by manual operation or by a
mechanically/electrically assisted triggering system.
All extinguishers must be serviced in accordance with
the manufacturers guidelines, or every 24 months,
whichever is sooner


From 2019, any new builds must have FIA homologated systems, from 2022, this will apply to all cars which need an extinguisher. At present, for SLS, extinguishers are recommended.
