For the engineers involved in the development of the 911 Cup vehicle, driver safety was once again of prime importance. Drivers are protected by both a specially designed safety cage and by a RECARO racing shell seat that has added support for the head and shoulders. The seat can be adjusted to perfectly fit the driver's body shape using special replaceable pads. The fore-aft adjustment helps to find the right pole position for every driver – ideal for races with driver changes. The 911 GT3 Cup is the most popular racing car in the world in terms of units produced and sold: over 2,600 since 1998.
At RECARO, driver protection is about more than just giving you the impression you’re in safe hands. It’s our utmost priority. We act on the maxim of delivering uncompromising safety, reliability and durability to protect our customers under every circumstance and condition. With our DNA firmly anchored in motor sport, we have proven to deliver peak performances in safety, that routinely exceed legal standards. Safety first.
A racing car is not comfortable. It’s loud, hard, and stripped to its racing bones. As the key contact area between car and driver, the seat provides critical millisecond-by-millisecond feedback from the chassis, tires, brakes, engine and track surface. It has to be so perfectly tailored that you can forget everything aside from handling the car and winning the race. Every second on track demands every ounce of your focus and awareness. So what makes the difference? A seat that you barely notice, because it supports and cocoons you like a second skin. At RECARO we’re experts in human anatomy – especially the spine. Our racing seats are ergonomically designed to provide outstanding support and protection for your back against all the forces the track can throw at it.
Every driver is unique. Your helmet, overalls and shoes need to fit perfectly – too tight or too loose is a potential distraction. Equally, your seat must be right for your physique. A RECARO racing seat is like a tailor-made suit. It fits like a glove. Only products made with experience, passion and skill make you feel this comfortable. Products refined to perfection. Intelligently designed to fit you perfectly: a unique blend of comfort and ergonomics.
