head/neck restraint


Guys, my grandson runs a Jr champ in a beginner class. He has complained a couple of times with his neck hurting after being bumped from behind. I have noticed a few of the other racers have a wrap-around neck brace attached to their seats. I'm just looking for info/pics on this so I might be able to fabricate something. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

That's a kirkey 10in with a right side head rest he's too little to be holding his head up with a helmet let alone be getting hit and knocked around. The helmets are too heavy for little kids. We have a pyrotect racing helmet but motorcycle or atv shops have helmets that are about a pound lighter than ours which I would call a true racing helmet. At the speeds we are carrying a motorcycle helmet is fine.

My boys are 6 and 8 and one is 48inches other is 50 inches. Both weigh 56pds for reference on the seat size.
