Torq Race Suits

 

Motorsport drivers wear a racing suit or overalls that covers them from the neck to the wrists and ankles. They’re compulsory for all drivers to wear when competing.

Suits mostly comprise of one-piece overalls made up of various layers of fireproof material.

Whether you’re racing or testing,if you’re behind the wheel you’ll need to wear a suit that meets standards (or homologation) set by governing body the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), or you won’t be allowed on the track. For suits at the moment, that’s FIA 8856-2000.

There are many products on today’s market, from entry-level suits to those at the top of the range incorporating the newest technology. Most are made from a material known as Nomex.

Having two or three layers is the current standard, and each one is typically designed to provide some 15 seconds of fire protection. (So, clearly, the more layers you have, the more protection is offered.)

Of course, you’ll also be looking at the design, comfort and fit and weight of your suit. Sizing is European, and goes from size 44 to 64, although actual dimensions may vary slightly from one manufacturer to another. And, equally, you’ll need to find a suit that’s right for your weight and height.

At Race Paddock, we offer racing suits from leading manufacturer Torq. Choose your base model, preferred colour and design, finish (print or embroidery) and size. Further customisation options include boot cut or normal leg, and whether or not to have a belt or pockets.

Finally, select from a choice of three base models – and let us know if you have any questions about your racing suit.
