08 February 2024

Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme, which governs the FIM Endurance World Championship, has announced that two new manufacturers have been added to the list of FIM Homologated Barriers in track racing as of 2024 in yet another safety-first move.

No Pain Barrier (triple A+ LT, triple A+ SP, and A+ OR barrier models) and Champion (A+ INFLATABLE barrier model) have successfully passed the FIM homologation (FRHPba-01) and can be used with immediate effect in track racing championships, including the EWC.

FIM Homologated Barriers (FRHPba-01) will be compulsory from 2029 in all FIM world championship and prize events listed in the FIM Standard for Track Racing circuits.

The homologation allows FIM to ensure more complete, high-end protection for riders with the emphasis placed on optimal protection, providing a minimised risk of slipping under the barriers or rebounding. As a reminder, FIM homologated barriers have single FIM QR codes adhered on each module.
