RECARO Pro Racer Ultima 1.0:  The Next Level in Racing Seat Technology

You only have to sit in a RECARO racing seat to “feel the difference”. The design of the ground breaking RECARO Pro Racer Ultima 1.0 is optimized to work with HANS systems. Over 50 years of RECARO racing seat technology and meticulous manufacturing expertise come together in the Pro Racer Ultima 1.0.  Always on the cutting edge of racing seat technology the Pro Racer Ultima is the first racing seat to meet the latest and most stringent FiA homologation standard 8862-2009 (Advanced Racing Seat).  RECARO developed the first racing seat with head protection in 1996. Improving racing safety is a continuous goal at RECARO. The Pro Racer Ultima’s ergonomic S shaped shell forms to the drivers back. The “built-in” lumbar support of RECARO racing seats provides structured support for the lower back that protects against spinal compression in high impact accidents.
