RECARO RACE

DRIVERS, TAKE YOUR SEATS! Wilhelm Reutter founded his body shop in 1906. Ever since, we’ve been obsessed with custom mobility, and Reutter’s passion lives on in the first two letters of our brand as well as in everything we do. We’re all about making driving safer, more comfortable and more controlled – a driving experience that you can really feel. We put people first. Every time. We’re equally obsessed with motorsport. Whatever record you broke yesterday, you aspire to beat it today. That’s why we’re constantly looking for ways to help you shave a little time off your next lap – safely. Winning is one thing. But to be a champion, you need to keep learning and developing. Our seats are more than just a set of components. They’re made of innovation, quality, premium materials, craftsmanship and a serious passion for cars. From the ultimate in comfort and ergonomics to uncompromising sporting flair, our products are as diverse and exacting as the individuals who buy them. And always of the quality you expect from RECARO. Choose cutting-edge performance that puts you in the driving seat. Enjoy that ride!

RECARO RACE

FORGING INNOVATION SINCE 1906. For over 110 years, our products have combined innovation, quality and craftsmanship. Every detail counts, right down to the last millimeter.

RECARO has been setting new standards for over 50 years. Our roots go way back to the Stuttgarter Carosserie- u. Radfabrik founded in 1906 by master saddler Wilhelm Reutter. The company developed and produced car bodies for all major manufacturers, including the interior fittings, so seat specialization was the next logical step. In 1963, REutter CAROsserie became seat specialist RECARO. In 1965, RECARO unveiled its “sports seat,” the very first of its kind. The automotive seating revolution had begun! Just two years later, the RECARO rallye became the first roadlegal shell seat. The success story continued with countless pioneering milestones in comfort, safety and lightweight construction. Innovation is second nature to us, and RECARO Automotive dominates the car seating industry to this day. What’s more, we’re already shaping its future. The RECARO seats 4

of tomorrow will take the unique RECARO driving experience to a new level on both the road and the race track.

Evolution and revolution – RECARO’S milestone developments in safety, comfort and lightweight engineering: 1974 – the first shell seat with an adjustable backrest; 1979 – the first Kevlar® super lightweight racing shell seat (less than 3 kg); 1995 – a world first: the first racing shell with head protection; 2002 – the first shell seat designed for the HANS driver protection system, and finally ... the first road-legal racing shell: The RECARO podium is the lightest retrofit seat with ABE in the world.


INNOVATION BY TRADITION

Founded in 1963, the new “car seating company” emerged under the name RECARO, a play on words combining REutter and CAROsserie, the old German word for car body.

In 1965, RECARO unveiled its sports seat at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, revolutionizing car seating. In 1967, we launched our first shell seat, followed by the RECARO racing seat in 1974 – the first thoroughbred for professional touring car competitions. Both were defined by body-hugging seat shells, built to RECARO’s peerless standards in safety and lightweight construction. 5

Master saddler Wilhelm Reutter starts the development and production of car bodies, interior fittings and vehicle seats for automobiles, both in custom production and small batches, at his “Stuttgarter Carosserieu. Radfabrik” body plant.

The company produces car bodies and interior fittings for all major car manufacturers. Precursors and prototypes of the Volkswagen (later Beetle) are also manufactured by Reutter on behalf of the Porsche design studio.

Car bodies, interior fittings and seats for the Porsche 356 go into production at Reutter in Stuttgart. By 1965, Reutter has built around 60,000 vehicles. Development and subsequent production of reclining seat mechanisms begins.

RECARO RACE

PEAK BODY SUPPORT FOR UNPARALLELED RACING PERFORMANCE. Motorsport is the ultimate test of driver and machine: top speeds, centrifugal forces, vibration, jolts, impacts, and maximum Gs. To win, you need unshakable confidence in your car and equipment. One hundred percent. No ifs, ands or buts. A racing car is not comfortable. It’s loud, hard, and stripped to its racing bones. As the key contact area between car and driver, the seat provides critical millisecond-by-millisecond feedback from the chassis, tires, brakes, engine and track surface. It has to be so perfectly tailored that you can forget everything aside from handling the car and winning the race. Every second on the track demands every ounce of your focus and awareness.

PERFORMANCE

“We want racing seats that provide the highest levels of safety, but also comfort. The P 1300 GT gives us both. The fore-aft seat adjustment is as rugged as it comes – perfect for long-distance races and frequent driver changeovers – and the shell gives drivers an Martin and Nicolas Raeder, Owners of Manthey Racing, Winners of the 2018 and 2021 ADAC Zurich 24-Hour Race at the Nürburgring

incredibly sensitive feel for the car and the track.”

LIKE A SECOND PROTECTIVE SKIN. So what makes the ultimate racing seat? The answer: one that you barely notice, because it supports and cocoons you like a second skin. At RECARO we’re experts in human anatomy – especially the spine. Our racing seats are ergonomically designed to provide outstanding support and protection for your back against all the forces the track can throw at it. 9

Carlos Sainz, Winner of the Rallye Dakar 2020

DAKAR RALLY – CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! If you’re a three-time champion of the world’s greatest long-distance desert rally, you know how important it is to have the right seat during those long, bumpy rides. Carlos Sainz and the X-raid team have been relying on RECARO’s racing shells for years.


RECARO RACE

A SAFE SEAT IS A SURE WIN. Motorsport is fraught with risks. Drivers face extreme challenges. They need absolute faith in themselves and their equipment. That’s why the top drivers in all the main national and international series choose RECARO racing shells. Supreme protection standards, tough testing regimes, state-of-the-art production processes and more than 110 years of experience guarantee you the best possible safety margin. RECARO products comply with stringent FIA requirements in every respect. The RECARO P 1300 GT even meets the exceptionally rigorous FIA Standard 8862-2009 for Advanced Racing Seats, which certifies products for 10 years – the RECARO P1300 GT LW even with the flexible sidemount. This requirement, already mandatory in many FIA world championships (GT3, WRC, WRX and ERC) has

SAFETY

NO COMPROMISES. At RECARO, driver protection is about more than just giving you the impression you’re in safe hands. We make no compromises when it comes to safety. It is our utmost priority. We push our seats to the limit: we’ve put over 12,000 of them through their paces since 1990. From the moment we start developing our seats, we work closely with other manufacturers of safety products. Our products routinely exceed legal standards and that’s why car manufacturers, professional drivers and racing drivers know they can trust us. Safety first!

“RECARO seats have kept me safe and successful in my more than 40 years in motorsport – and I’m sticking with them.” Walter Röhrl Rally driving legend

“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 priceless!”

Frank Stippler Professional racing driver, winner of the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring 2012 and 2019 and in Spa 2012

Only products made with experience, passion and skill make you feel this comfortable. Products refined to perfection. RECARO is the brand for exclusive seats made precisely to your tastes.

“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.”

Karolina Pilarczyk Drift Driver Queen of Europe Champion 2016 & 2017

“RECARO racing seats were the obvious choice for the entire Drift season. They’re simply perfect for the job! I feel like I am part of my car. They’re not just safe – they’re also very comfortable.”

HAPPY CUSTOMERS

“I love my RECARO seats! After a bad accident I was relieved to have them in my car. It turned out to be one of my best decisions. I escaped without a scratch – and that was largely down to the seat.” Ken Block Rally and Drift driver

“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.” 17

Sven Quandt Head of Team X-Raid, Winner of the Rallye Dakar 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2020.


YOUR RECARO

YOUR RACING SEAT STARTS HERE. Create your custom RECARO cockpit seat in a few simple steps. Take your time – begin by asking yourself a few questions: Are you racing in a professional or semiprofessional series? Which FIA standard must the seat comply with? Does it need to be compatible with the HANS system? Are you a solo driver who needs a fixed sidemount? Or part of a team with frequent driver changes during a race? Which material – ultra-light carbon or glass fiber reinforced polymer – is the best balance for you in terms of weight and performance?

After getting an initial overview from this brochure or a visit to our website, we always recommend a personal consultation with an authorized RECARO motorsport partner. Search for your nearest one on our website. Our partners can help you with your specific requirements. Round off your visit by trying out your favorite seat model.

Please note that special sidemounts are required to install RECARO racing seats properly.

PARTNER DER RECARO AUTOMOBILINDUSTRIE RACE

LIGHTEST SEAT IN THE WORLD 1 FIA 8855-1999 (Competition Seat)**

PIONEERING SEAT DESIGN. RECARO Podium The new RECARO Podium is much more than a thoroughbred CFRP shell seat. It’s a pioneering seat design for the contrasting demands of road and track. It’s not just its sleek outline, visible structures or innovative pad concept of varying thicknesses that make heads turn. The Podium stands out because of its superior quality and exceptional performance on all road types – whether you're commuting to work or competing to win. The RECARO Podium is the only retrofit shell seat on the market that has FIA homologation and is approved for use on public roads. Racing technology doesn’t get better than this! To meet our consistently high standards of innovation, quality, comfort and, most importantly, safety, the RECARO Podium went through intensive testing on the Nürburgring’s “Green Hell” during development. The suave combination of original Alcantara® fabrics and exclusive leather together with the passive ventilation of the open back shell and airy pad contours make even the longest of routes the most perfect of pleasures. In addition, the RECARO Podium is the first racing shell ever to be awarded the coveted seal of quality from AGR e.V, the German Campaign for Healthier Backs – a reliable decisionmaking aid when buying back-friendly products. The shell is also super light – but, of course, that goes without saying.

RECARO PODIUM DETAILED INFORMATION

The RECARO pad concept – replaceable pads to suit every driver A RECARO racing seat is like a tailor-made suit. It fits perfectly. Thanks to the varying pad thicknesses, the RECARO Podium is available in two sizes: size M for medium build drivers and size L for larger build drivers. This means the shell can be customized for optimal comfort and fit. The beauty of the pads’ design is that, rather than being simply flat, they are expertly shaped to fit the contours of your body. This allows air to circulate through the seat – a built-in cooling system. RECARO Podium M

RECARO Podium L

for medium build drivers

The RECARO Podium M is suitable for medium build drivers. The approx. 20 mm thick pads are available in all of the listed cover options.
