This is really good stuff.

As a "future" vintage racer with a family and what not... My
take/position on the hans device is yeah another $1000 item to add to
the start up check list, but I've seen enough strange accidents
recently to think yep I'd want one. I'd hope I'd be a good driver and
stay out of trouble, but you can't help it if someone else bumps into

Call it the outsider who wants to be an insider's perspective.
