Each team had a weight restriction of double the amount of the original vehicle, which meant careful consideration on what to fit to the car with to make them safe but also aesthetically in-keeping with the theme of the show. Attitude Autos contacted Romag for advice on their windscreen. They needed a solution to maximise safety for the driver, visibility and to be as light as possible to accommodate the weight restrictions.
Our technical team advised on a physical security glass; due to its robustness and resilience to repeated manual attack. Romag supply some of the thinnest and lightest security glass on the market – and so produced an 8.8mm thick, anti-spall, physical security windscreen able to withstand significant damage to protect the driver from impact fragments whilst maximising visibility in the heavily armoured vehicle.
Once completed, the team and the vehicle competed in the immense heat of South Africa’s Tankwa Karoo nature reserve about an hour’s drive into the desert. Three hours north of Cape Town, the site is the location of the yearly festival Africa Burn (an African version of the Burning Man festival). The vehicle competed against other teams in the arena, navigating tough terrain and difficult driving conditions.
To see how Attitude Auto’s got on in the competition, tune in from 6th May, 2018 on Sky One.
What they say
I chose Romag because they proved to be extremely helpful including trying to pull prices down to suit our budget, guiding us in the template creating and pushing time limits to the extreme in an attempt to get us the required glass.
I'd use Romag again without a second thought! I have been truly delighted with both their company and their products.
I’m currently modifying our original car that got us the show to make it more synonymous with the Hell Kitty. If I can get split screens accepted on the MOT we will definitely be up for another set!
