FIA Test "Rollover Hoop" :Video

The FIA Institute have started testing a titanium forward rollover hoop for extra cockpit protection for a driver's head. The rollover hoop and support bracket which was supplied by the Lotus F1 team was impact tested by a 20kg Formula 1 wheel and tyre assembly fired at 225km/h from a compressed nitrogen powered cannon.

As with the Jet Canopy Test - results will be fully analysed and presented to the Formula One Technical Working Group.
