"We prefer racing seats that provide not only top levels of safety, but comfort too. Both are perfectly combined in RECARO's P 1300 GT: thanks to the extremely stable lengthways adjustment function, it's the ideal seat for endurance races with alternating drivers. Sitting in the shell, each driver has maximum contact with the vehicle - and thus with the track as well."
Martin und Nicolas Raeder, team manager

"RECARO's P 1300 GT won me over the very first time I tried the seat out in the 2015 LMS Engineering Audi TTRS2. The optimum ergonomics and the seat's contours, which support the body perfectly, created an excellent platform for doing consistent lap times, as I was able to adopt a relaxed posture and thus never noticed any signs of fatigue. The adjustment tracks positioned on the side of the seat also contribute to the optimum seating position."
LMS Engineering, Ulli Andree, racing driver
"The racing shells P 1300 GT are a quantum leap. This isn’t just an optimization, but rather a very well done innovation. Of course, as a team principle, you hope that a serious accident never happens. But if it does, the safety groundwork that has been done by RECARO Automotive Seating is reassuring."
Matthias Holle, teamchef Mathol Racing
