  • Do race seats with head protection fit

    Has anyone tried to fit a seat like the Sparco Circuit seat in our cars?

    I think vodoomagoo has a similar seat in his car.

      They are a pretty tight fit into an E30.

      I have the Recaro Pro Racer.
      Its pretty much slammed to the floor, and my cage is tight up to the roof and B pillars and it barely fits.
      My window net actually touches the outboard head protector.

      If you have a sunroof & headliner before your cage main hoop & halo, I'd say no way its fitting.

        I've used the Pro Racer also in my old track car. The mounting system was VAC mounts, & Sparco sliders. My car had a welded in Autopower cage & complete headliner / sun roof.

        At 5'10" w/ HANs device I had no problems, nor did my buddy at 6'3". We never rolled up windows, I would suspect they would rub.

        I would suggest a QR steering wheel because getting in & out was a pain.
