What is impact of new FIA 8853-2016 Harness Standard

Posted by Peter Burchill on January 17, 2018 at 5:20 AM Comments comments (0)

FIA 8853-2016 - Harness Standard

8853-2016 – Sporting Background and Timing

8853-2016 was published in December 2016

FIA 8853/98 products may be produced until December 31, 2017 so when buying a new harness ensure tested to FIA 8852-2016 if manufactured in 2018.


Key changes

  • 8854/98 (4pt FIA harnesses) will remain in place for historical cars
  • 5pt harness systems will not be accepted or qualify for homologation under 8853-2016
  • V-Strap harness systems (sub-strap with single merge/point connection to buckle) will not be accepted or qualify for homologation under 8853-2016
  • Harnesses with an additional “Z-Strap” or Negative “g” strap may be homologated under 8853-2016


A little back ground

8853-2016 is intended to be introduced as follows:

8853-2016 - Technical Background

Accident analysis of the many championships fitted with Accident Data Recorders (ADR) has shown that very high G (>70g) crashes are now survivable with good vehicle crashworthiness and cockpit environments together with best practice safety equipment. On this basis, the performance levels for FIA approved safety equipment have been newly defined to manage the forces and energies generated during 70g accidents.

Test Values

As test dummies are somewhat more aggressive than real (human) occupants are, the new FIA harness test prescribes a 60+g pulse to ensure the harness can manage the loads exerted during real accidents up to at least 70g. Based on development testing with a 50th percentile Hybrid III dummy, the following loads (RHS column) have been evaluated as appropriate. (Note: Development Testing has been done with Hybrid III 50% - the homologation testing will be conducted with an ECE R-16 50th percentile dummy as no internal instrumentation is required)

Static Testing

The table below summarizes the mechanical properties and design differences between the previous FIA Standard 8853/98 and the newly developed standard 8853-2016

Reference Values: 1kN = 102kg = 225pounds

Dynamic Testing

The most significant change for the new FIA 8853-2016 standard is increasing the severity of the dynamic requirements of the sled/crash testing.

The impact speed will be increased from 50+/- 1km/h to 67 +/- 1km/h

The peak change in velocity will be increased from 32g to 60+g

The seating position will be reclined as shown below and the seat will be yawed at an angle of 30° relative to the longitudinal axis of the trolly/sled, in order to simulate an angled Impact.

Additional Changes and Enhancements:

8854/98 (4pt FIA harnesses) will remain in place for historical cars

5pt harness systems will not be accepted or qualify for homologation under 8853-2016

V-Strap harness systems (sub-strap with single merge/point connection to buckle) will not be accepted or qualify for homologation under 8853-2016

Harnesses with an additional “Z-Strap” or Negative “g” strap may be homologated under 8853-2016

The team had a busy saturday running in 2 qualifying sessions and 3 races... #hardrewardingwork

MG Cup

Race 1  - Starting P5 and finishing the race P2 great fun fighting with the Ex Dunlop Tomcat race cars.   I was awarded driver of the day for this none stop battle between me and the 4 other cars.

Race 2 - Starting P6 and finishing the race P3 again a none stop battle with the Tomcats and after a do or die move on the last lap I took 3rd.

This leaves me 3rd in the championship with 2 rounds left......  I can wait.

Cockshoot Cup

Race 1  Qualifying P6 I battle the entire race with fellow ZS racers to bring the car home in P4 great clean racing on slicks.  This will be my last guest race with the championship and having competed in 4 races from 8th I leave the championship in P5. 

The Championship has 2 more races and looks like we still be in the top 7 even after missing 5 races in the championship.
