PMW Expo live: Low-cost racing seat

LinkedIn +

Racetech (Booth 7040) is launching its new low-cost seat to the European market at PMW Expo. The RT4100 is a standard-size fiberglass race seat that has the option of being back-mounted to the roll cage at shoulder level.

The seat is available in two sizes and complies with FIA 8855 regulations, offering a number of features that elevate it above entry-level offerings in the segment. Racetech’s European manager Rhys Nolan commented, “It addresses a market – it complies with FIA regulations, but at the end of the day, this one is still a good seat. You can make a seat that just passes the regulations very cheaply, but this one offers more than that.”

Compared with the company’s more premium 4119 range, the lower-cost seat has less shoulder support and no air ducting, but still offers back-mounting, breathable spacer fabric, parallel sides and pronounced thigh support make it comfortable and safe during tough races.
