Alex B?hm, Racing driver

"Since we founded the team in 2006, the Recaro seats that we use have ensured more than anything that no driver in a Black Falcon vehicle has come to any harm. I can remember in particular two high-speed accidents in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. In both cases the cars turned over several times and the drivers were shaken about a lot, but thanks to the perfect safety of the Recaro P1300GT not seriously injured. Notable too was an accident involving one of our Cup Porsche cars, in which despite crashing sideways into the barrier at over 130km/h the driver escaped with just a couple of bruises. There the P1300GT had to withstand enormous lateral G forces and simultaneously provide optimum protection to the 100kg driver. In all three cases the upshot was: 'Car OK, driver OK!' That for me is the best reason for continuing in the future to put our faith in Recaro products and our partnership with the company."

Alexandre Imperatori, racing driver

"The Recaro seat performed flawlessly during the entire 24 hours race. It immediately improved our seating position and comfort which is very important especially at a difficult and bumpy circuit like the Nurburgring Nordschleife as it allows us to fully concentrate on our driving and extracting maximum performance from the car. I was very happy we decided to use the Recaro seat."

Sven Schnabl, Falken Motorsports, teamchef

LMS Engineering, Ulli Andree, racing driver

"RECARO's P 1300 GT won me over the very first time I tried the seat out in the 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, Christoph Koslowski, racing driver

"The seat was fantastic, very comfortable, lots of freedom of movement for arms and legs, yet despite that optimum hold whenever and wherever it was needed. The good thing about the seat was that you didn't even notice it."

 "A RECARO seat always leads to the car in question fitting like a hand-crafted shoe on your foot - the prerequisite for fast, safe driving."

Martin and Nicolas Raeder, team manager

"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."

Matthias Holle, teamchef Mathol Racing

"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."

Franz Engstler, professional racing driver

"With the RECARO seats, I get the best feedback from the vehicle – especially in the shoulder and pelvic area – which is extremely important for RECARO racecar driver. A partner like Recaro gives me the security to be able to go to the limits in the race car."

"Without exception, we have RECARO racing seats in all our rally cars. I'd also never want to have anything else in a rally car, as safety is the top priority."

Hermann Gassner jr., Rallyefahrer

"I've trusted in the safety and comfort of RECARO racing seats ever since my first rally in 2007. And I’ve already involuntarily put this trust to the test. Coming out of a fast right-hander, my co-driver Ursula Mayrhofer and I came off the road and rolled over. Thanks to the safety features and above all thanks to the RECARO Pro Racer HANS, we were able to walk away practically uninjured."

Timo Berhard, professional racing driver

"The RECARO Pro Racer racing seat gives me just the amount of comfort that I need in a race vehicle. What's key is that I have complete side support in order to deliver top performance. And on top of that the RECARO gives me the necessary safety."

Armin Schwarz, rally driver

"We were one of the first teams in the Baja endurance races to use the RECARO Pro Racer Spa, as the seat provides great safety and comfort. The head protectors protect us in the event of a crash and the very low sitting position further increases safety. It's the most comfortable and safest seat I ever had."

Nani Roma, Team X-Raid

"On cross-country rallies you don't get a moment's rest in the car. We're shaken about the whole time, for hours on end. Add to that jumps, driving through holes and other obstacles. In such circumstances a good seat is important to protect your body. With the wrong seat everything would be hurting within a few minutes."

Michel Périn, Team X-Raid, co-pilot

"Especially as a co-driver in cross-country racing, the seat is very important. As I'm busy with the road book and the instruments needed for navigation, I can't always watch the road ahead. I'm therefore also unable to prepare myself for the bumps that befall our MINI ALL4 Racing. It's then important that my seat gives me the necessary stability and safety."

Sven Quandt, Team X-Raid, teamchef

"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."

Sebastian Walker, Walker-Racing

"We fitted RECARO seats in our VW Golf kit car and really appreciate them. They provide both the necessary safety and the requisite comfort as well. Sitting in this seat you get the feedback you need from the vehicle, so that you can always feel precisely how it's handling when driving near the limit. That's the key to our success!"

Alex und Corinna, Gr?ff Motorsport

"After every event, I used to have bad back problems, which I always put down to the strong G forces you get from drifting. But since I fitted RECARO, my back problems have gone. We have now fitted our tractor unit with RECARO seats as well, as perfect hold and comfort are important on journeys to an event - especially the long ones! Now we arrive already relaxed."
