Tow Straps

A requirement for racing is front and rear towing hooks, eyes or straps.  I don't like the metal ones as they can cause a lot of damage to to other cars in accidents (as we've found out ourselves) so we are fitting fabric tow straps.

The rear bumper was removed and the strap fitted to the top of the bumber bar.
A slot was then cut in the bumper to feed the strap through and folded up with an elastic band when we're not on the track.
Tow stickers will beput on the bumper adjacent to the the straps to ensure marshals can easily find the towing points on the car.
