We just don’t sell car parts, and we also have clothing gear for petrol heads. Besides racing suits and jackets, we have a full line of shirts, caps, shorts, undergear, hoodies, and socks! Racing is quite a dangerous sport, so we must always ensure that we keep our safety our topmost priority.
More than safety, petrol heads have certain cars and brands close to heart. Enjoy Ferrari jackets, Porsche caps, and Sparco socks you can wear every day, even when you are nowhere near a racetrack.
Drivers' clothing must be flame retardant to help protect them in the event of a fire. Materials are subjected to rigorous open flame tests in laboratories. An artificial fabric called Nomex is widely used because it has excellent fire-resistant properties and is very lightweight. Modern driver suits are usually made from two to four layers of Nomex. They are thoroughly tested before use to ensure that they can withstand between 600 and 800 degrees Celsius. To be suitable for help, the inside of the suit must not exceed 41 degrees Celsius for at least 11 seconds when exposed to such heat. Likewise, zips must also be able to withstand high temperatures so that the driver's skin is not melted or burned.
Even the threads that stitch the suit together must be fire-resistant, as do any patches such as those of the sponsors, although they tend to be printed on them, which has helped reduce the race suit's weight by more than 500 grams. Ensuring that the suits are lightweight helps keep drivers comfortable so that they can perform at their best. Another essential feature is the ability to breathe; due to intense physical exercise, drivers can lose a few kilos of sweat during the race, so it is vital for their comfort that this moisture can escape.
