The CIK-FIA has cancelled the homologation of certain Righetti Ridolfi silencers after they failed a pot-homologation random check. Check to see if you’re using the silencer(s) in question to ensure you don’t get caught out.
The full release is below:
“Cancellation of the homologations No. 16/SA/18 and 19/SA/18 19.01.2012As provided for by the Homologation Regulations, the CIK-FIA regularly proceeds to so-called “post-homologation” checks of equipment by procuring random samples and submitting them to tests in order to ensure that the quality of the equipment concerned remains constant and that the homologation requirements are still respected.
Further to one of these control tests, the inlet silencers NOX 23 and NOX 30 of the make Righetti Ridolfi, respectively homologated in 2010 for a 9-year period under numbers 16/A/18 and 19/SA/18, have been found not to comply as they no longer meet the noise absorption minima defined by the Homologation Regulations. As a consequence, these homologations are cancelled and the will no longer be accepted for events governed by the CIK-FIA regulations.
