When you’re driving at speed, on the street but especially at the race track, you need to remain stationary behind the wheel, so that all the controls are readily at hand and your instruments are in clear view. And this isn’t possible if you’re sliding around in your seat through every turn. Racing seats are designed with ample side bolsters at your hips and shoulders to keep you in place and in control, regardless of the speed or direction.
Besides the lateral support provided by the side bolsters, racing seats are also shaped to keep you in a comfortable, upright driving position. And because weight is the enemy of speed, racing seats are also designed to be as light as possible, so your engine won’t have to push excess pounds around the track. Perhaps most importantly, racing seats are designed to enable the mounting of racing harnesses. A 5-point racing harness restrains the torso with belts over each shoulder, and prevents the driver from “submarining”, slipping forward under the lap belt in the event of a crash.
We want to be your one-stop racing seat headquarters, so we also offer 3, 4, and 5-point racing harness and racing harness bars. The racing bar attaches to the vehicle’s B-pillar and provides the attachment point for the shoulder harnesses, on vehicles that don’t have a roll cage. Most organized racing sanctioning bodies require a 5-point harness. The harness we offer features a central quick release lock that releases all the belts with a turn of the lock. This harness will keep you securely in the seat while racing and help prevent injury in an accident, but also allow you to get out of the car quickly if necessary.
