An introduction to Racetech Manufacturing Ltd. (Racetech) Based in Wellington, New Zealand, Racetech operates on a global basis. We’re proud to say that we are world-renowned for our Racetech raceseats. Our composite and carbon fibre race seats are fitted to thousands of race cars – touring cars, rally cars, drift, drag and speedway cars – all over the world, as well as many race boats and other sport seat applications. The design, testing, manufacture and sale of our comprehensive range of Racetech race seats forms the heart of our business and we also distribute and sell numerous other top class race products. Racetech has worked, and continue to work with the Federation Internationale De L’Automobile (FIA) on numerous development and testing projects, and our team is regularly consulted by national motorsport organisations regarding appropriate technical standards and improved safety within racecars. As an example of this in 2003 managing director, David Black, was invited by the FIA Institute to assist in developing the new 8862-2009 seat standard. This standard founded many of its regulations on earlier work done in collaboration with Dodge and the Viper project. You’ll find Racetech personnel won’t hesitate to ‘tell it like it is’ and provide concise facts about any of our products. Racetech helps set the safety standards, then delivers the right products. Safety in motorsport Safety is a serious matter. That’s why our expert team is passionate about the tiny details of seats, harnesses and other vital components of your racing machine that really do make a difference in terms of safety. After all, there’s always a risk of damage in any form of competitive motorsport, but we must do all we can to reduce the likelihood of injury to you, the motorsport competitors of the world. Some simple philosophies and facts about motorsport crashes: - If you support the human body well enough in the right places and keep all parts of the body in the same relationship to each other, a body can withstand enormous decelerations with minimal or no injuries. 100G is quite survivable. - The four parts of the body which need this support are the head, shoulders, pelvis and thighs. - Lateral/side impacts cause more serious injuries than frontal impacts. - The body should be stopped as close to the chassis deceleration as possible. - Only 20% of body movement in a frontal deceleration is in belt stretch; the balance is body reconfiguration. - Using a crash recorder in the field, we have measured an 81G lateral impact during use of a Racetech seat in a New Zealand motorsport class. The driver had no injury ... and the seat had no damage.   Our speciality: Racetech race seats The latest ranges of Racetech race seats have a unique and patented back mount distinguishing them from competitors’ offerings. A Racetech seat’s lack of flex during impact – due to the back mount – is a key reason a Racetech seat is the world’s best. Mounting the seat from the back, in addition to the traditional floor mount, enhances the driver’s feel of the race car. Why? Because there’s a lack of flex in the shoulder area which also helps reduce driver fatigue and improves driver safety. Tests have also shown that chassis stiffness is enhanced due to Racetech’s unique six-way mounting method which helps improve car handling and the ability to tune the chassis. Developed in collaboration with the FIA, Racetech seats are used by some of the world’s leading teams and constructors, including the whole field of the Swedish TTA, 26 out of 28 Australian V8 Supercars, the FIA World Rally Championship, the British Touring Car Championship and in offshore powerboat racing. Racetech seats are some of the strongest, safest and most supportive seats available. Other features offered by Racetech in the top ranges of seats are: Driver cooling – a simple, nothing-to-fail system that works effectively as proved over and over by most V8 Supercar drivers. Attachment points at the extremity of the head and shoulder supports to ensure side-nets don’t pull away from the seat during impact. All Racetech seats have parallel sides for easy of fitting and driver positioning. The steel of all fixing bosses comes through the composite to ensure ease of bolt thread starting and additional strength at crucial load points.
