Global protection systems company Geobrugg has donated 40 meters of debris fencing to the Motorsport Safety Foundation's Adopt-a-Corner initiative. In order to help race circuits keep up with the industry's increasingly expensive economic landscape, Adopt-a-Corner gives an individual or business the chance to donate a safety barrier upgrade in exchange for a branding contract at the track. This mutually beneficial partnership improves the racetrack's safety standards by providing added crash protection with FIA-approved barrier upgrades. 
"We are very grateful to Jochen Braunwarth, John Kalejta and everyone at Geobrugg for their generosity and support," said Scot Elkins, chief operating officer of the Motorsport Safety Foundation. "Because of this incredible contribution, we are now able to provide racetracks in need of updated debris fencing with 10 state-of-the-art panels."
Headquartered in Switzerland, Geobrugg develops and manufactures protection systems made of high-tensile steel wire, supplying a variety of motorsport barriers for city races, permanent race circuits and test tracks around the world. Its FIA debris fence delivers maximum protection against high-energy impacts and has been produced according to Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) specifications. Designed for diverse circuit layouts, shortcuts and city race circuits, the panels offer a fully bolted solution for both temporary and permanent track safeguarding. Furthermore, the unobtrusive net structure ensures that spectators get the best possible view without compromising safety.
The Motorsport Safety Foundation plans to offer these debris fence panels to interested race tracks based in the United States. The installation will be a showcase for Geobrugg and an opportunity for the Motorsport Safety Foundation to help a racetrack experience the latest in debris fence technology.
