The RECARO Pro Racer – our premium product for GT and touring cars built to the FIA 8855-1999 standard – was developed for HANS driver safety systems and comes in four versions. The seat is available in carbon-aramid composite (CFRP/AFRP) or glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP), and in various sizes, including an XL option for drivers of larger build. The Pro Racer fits like a glove. And the FIA-homologated flexible sidemount accommodates any driver’s physique with ease.

“My RECARO racing seat is not just reassuringly safe. It’s also consistently comfortable. It supports my whole body so I can perform at my very best.”
“In cross-country rallying several factors are key when it comes to seats. They include not just safety, but comfort as well. Our drivers sometimes sit in their car for over eight hours. Everyone who has sat in their car for that long knows what you feel like after such a drive. For our crews to be able to put in a perfect performance their seat must fit perfectly.”
"After 29 years in motorsport and series development, my body has definitely come to appreciate the superb comfort of RECARO seats. Even more so on the Nordschleife when I’m facing the challenge of so many fast sections and the centrifugal forces they produce – not to mention the bumps – a perfectly shaped seat is worth its weight in gold!"
