We are getting ready for the Championships. Starts next Wednesday - more details coming soon
This year the owner and staff of Nelson Ledges Race Course decided to enhance the ChampCar event by adding an enclosed area for food, drinks, local vendors and some very good live music - thank you.
We were surprised to find this on arrival - and so were the racing teams. Must have been a novel experience. The groups did not play all night - unlike the teams who did race all night (well most of them.)
Most protective clothing will continue to be manuufactured to the FIA 8856-2000 standard. This new standard is incrementally being mandated on the international racing series. The major change is a 20% increase in the fabrics fire resistancy. We suspect this will soon become the manufacturing standard for all protective clothing.
Thanks to everyone who came to visit us at Mid-Ohio this weekend.
Mostly a great weekend for all participants and a taster for the NASA Championships. See you there September18-22.

Tags tell tech inspectors that your apparel is compliant. No SFI or FIA tag on your socks, you are not going to pass tech.

NEW and still in with it’s original packaging. $1,250
The seat was purchased for a Porsche Cayman, but never installed because our customer bought a new GT4 Clubsport. No need to replace those seats.
This seat was purchased 2 years ago and before Racetech obtained the FIA homologation for the RT4119. So for sanctioned events the seat will need a back brace. The RT4119 is a very popular seat in the drag racing arena.
Original selling price $2,090. Now offered at $1,250.
K1 Racewear has a great custom suit program. This was our most straightforward suit customization. The process was simple and the results were perfect. The price difference will amaze you.
Our customers were fitted and a style selected using our stock of K1 suits (bottom right.) The K1 Precision II style was chosen - base price $699. To change the colors of the suit with extra trim added $100 per suit. To customize the sizing added another $100 per suit. It too 4 weeks for the suits to arrive.
Contact us to understand the multiple ways we can help you customize a suit (including patches, silkscreen and embroidery) from a variety of the best brands.
These seats are new for 2019. They are one of our customers’ favorites for fit (torso and car), comfort, applications and quality. If there was one con - the pending FIA homologation. Now that has been resolved - and future purchases will arrived with those gold hologram FIA tags.
We always advise customers to install back braces when putting new seats into their vehicles. It’s practical and safer. For the RT4100, Racetech has made this easy - the threaded holes are pre- installed.
We have them in the showroom and always display them at our track-side events.
Great weekend spent with the Allegheny Region PCA at Pitt Race. We always arrive the day before an event. Unpack the trailer and truck and then sunrise-ready to start the day.
We have to be prepared - DE & HPDE track events always start early. Tracks are open (hot) 8-8:30 a.m. but before that there’s the mandatory tech inspections and drivers/instructors meetings.
We only decide to stock and promote products after they have clearly demonstrated their motorsport worthiness. With Sabelt we are confident we can promote the brand.
We have learnt to appreciate Sabelt’s subtle nuances, Italian style and innovation from our research and our customers. Sabelt both surprises and makes our customers happy. Surprised because they were not expecting the immediate softness, comfort, lightness and that perfect ‘racer’ fit. A fit that comes from Sabelt’s long manufacturing history, racing experience and industry know-how.
We like working with companies that manufacture their own products - meaning they control the process, the quality is consistent. Many brands design their products, but outsource the manufacturing. Sabelt’s products are designed and produced in Italy.
