Cibie Oscar SC "Snap-In" Halogen Headlamp, Cornering Version
Cibié lights have been popular for decades on all sorts of endurance racing vehicles, from Paris to Dakar to Le Mans. The Oscar SC is one of the most versatile headlamps available. It has been used on everything from 1960s Porsche rally cars right up to current ALMS sports prototypes.
This "snap-in" version has no external housing. The 6" diameter round lamp is designed to be mounted in a flat vertical panel using the aiming ring provided. The aluminized steel reflector requires just 3 5/8" clearance behind the panel (not counting bulb and plug). The Oscar SC has a clear, flat glass lens to let all of the light shine through.
The Cornering pattern shines a broad, even beam to light up the track edge and corner apex. When paired with a 100W halogen bulb (not included), it illuminates only about 1/8 mile (240m) ahead, but up to 250 feet (75m) side-to-side. It is perfect for endurance racing vehicles because it makes the corners much more visible through the night. Not DOT approved for primary lighting. Sold individually.
It is highly recommended to use a plexiglass outer fairing to protect these lights from damage. Many racing organizations require a cover that will contain any glass fragments in the event of breakage.
