This famous Italian racing brand has long provided racing teams as far up the ladder as F1 with race wear and equipment. That’s why even one of its most basic of racing seats is still top quality equipment. With base or side mount fittings, the Sprint pulls the driver close to the ground with a deep base and holds them tight with generous side bolstering. It even features contrasting stitching and holes for 3-6 point harnesses. Weighing in at just 8.7kg and wrapped in self-extinguishing material, this entry-level seat is fit for high-level motorsport.

Thick foam padding improves comfort, while Hans compatibility and wide head protection substantially improves impact safety. Available with complex heat transferring cushioning, the Corbeau Sprint helps to keep drivers in hot cockpits cooler, and can even absorb some of the vibrations and jolts racers are exposed to when driving hard on track.

Sparco six-point Pro Racer harness

All racing seats are designed to work with harnesses to provide maximum support, and our pick of the bunch is Sparco’s six-point Pro Racer harness. Fitting most top-level racing seats, the harness comes with lightweight belt adjusters and attachments, as well as an aluminium twist-release buckle. Clips designed to bolt to the car’s chassis can be removed if the harnesses are to be attached to the roll cage, with the lengthy straps enabling enough adjustability to fit saloon racers. Three-inch shoulder and lap and two-inch crotch straps keep the driver pinned to their seat, essential when driving on the limit.
