Peter Bready is the Victoian National Board Member... so it is a reliable source!<br>

><br>
> It has been confirmed that a number of similar unsold harnesses in stock<br>

><br>
> CAMS is issuing this notice asking all competition vehicle owners in<br>
> Australia to inspect their harnesses. The homologation number appears<br>
> on a label attached to each strap of the harness. If harnesses with the<br>
> above homologation number are fitted, CAMS advises that they not be used<br>
> until they have been returned to the point of sale for inspection.<br>

> It is possible that further action may be taken in regard to these<br>

Contrary to popular opinion, I do have mechanical sympathy, I always feel sorry for the cars I drive.
