RECARO Automotive Named Official Seating Partner of Sportscar Vintage Racing Association

Detroit, MI, USA, February 2, 2022 – RECARO Automotive has been announced as the newest partner to join the SpeedTour family. The agreement establishes RECARO Automotive as the “Official Seating of Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA).”

“When you think about ultimate quality, safety and ergonomics in the motorsports seating market, RECARO Automotive leads the industry,” said Tony Parella, owner of SVRA. “I’m thrilled to have them as a partner. Our team has spent the last several years developing relationships with premier partners who match our dedication to providing safety and quality to our drivers, and RECARO is another great example of that.”

The Official Partnership with SVRA introduces RECARO Automotive to a wider audience – both inside the paddock and enthusiasts enjoying the racing action.

“Showcasing our brand on the track reinforces the merits of our world-class seating technology to both drivers and fans who are passionate about motorsports,” said Emil Kreycik, President and COO of RECARO Automotive. “The ultimate goal is to demonstrate to the fans that the same safety, comfort and craftmanship designed for race cars is available on the aftermarket and select OEM products for many of the vehicles on today’s roads.”

RECARO Automotive has a history of working closely with professional and amateur drivers, who race at high speed with high g-forces for hours at a time. Their feedback leads to improved technologies for RECARO Automotive’s passenger seats.

“We really view our involvement with motorsports holistically, rather than just a branding exercise. We want to promote the safety, comfort and security of our seats. If I’m a customer, I know that having RECARO Automotive seats in my vehicle means that there are years of rigorous testing behind the product,” said Kreycik.

Top drivers in all of the main national and international series chose RECARO racing shells in 2022.
