Why You Should Upgrade to Race Seats
With the amount of raw power cars are capable of these days, you need all the comfort and support that a racing seat offers.
Can you imagine having more than 500 horsepower under your fingertips and the slightest flick of the steering wheel to the left sends you holding on as your body flies the opposite direction?
No. That is what racing seats are for.
Unfortunately, most performance cars of lacked supportive seats. Luckily, the aftermarket came to the rescue and saw the need for race seats.
But this also begs the question: are race seats a worthy investment for a sports sedan, a performance-oriented coupe, or a project ¼ mile bruiser that you are only to use on weekends?
Benefits of Race Seats
Here we listed some benefits of race seats and reasons why they are a worthwhile and necessary investment for your performance car.
1. Improved Safety
Race seats are crucial as you chase to shave another four-tenths of a second off your lap time.
Race seats will prevent your bottom from sliding around uncontrollably (especially if your car is equipped with leather seats). Suddenly you are detrimental to your performance because you can’t sit still.
This can be remedied by a race seat which is made exactly for these moments. The right seating position and support will ensure that your goal is only obliterating lap times and not worrying how you sit. You will also grip the steering wheel less frantically adding more focus to your goal.
Race seats are designed to keep your body properly in place even during high g-force cornering. This ensures that every control is easily within reach, giving you the confidence to drive faster.
2. More Comfortable
Race seats are actually more comfortable than your run-of-the-mill car seats.
Why, you ask? The answer is having the support in all the right place make it a comfortable place to be in – hips, back, neck, and head.
Race seats are available in a myriad of materials including leather, Alcantara, and fabric. Plus points because you can pick the right material to match you car for more style.
Being more structural, race seats are optimized for riding comfort because, unlike normal car seats, they are effective in accommodating your body shape.
Every time you are behind the wheel, sports seats give you better overall comfort than regular ones. This holds true for both short and long drives. Many race seats are available in different widths to fit your body.
3. Lighter and Stiffer
Most race seats weigh about 14 kg each. They are a lot lighter compared to regular car seats that become even heavier with electric motors, fans, and vents. Aside from being lighter, race seats are also stiffer. This helps keep the driver and front passenger in place during spirited drives.
Should Invest in Race Seats?
Race seats are a lot safer and more comfortable than regular seats. Especially designed for spirited drives or flat out racing, you’ll find that race seats have been the missing link in your performance car all along.

We recommend doing this with the stock seat still in the car. It is usually best to take a least three measurements: One between the console and the door panel at the front or rear of the seat base (whichever is tighter), one between the console and the door panel at the lower lumbar area, and one at the shoulder level.
Instead of stretching the measuring tape across the available space, find the center of the existing seat and then measure outward in both directions. For example, you may measure from the center of the seat to the door panel and get 12 inches, but when you measure between the center of the seat and the console you get 11 inches. Instead of noting “23 inches”, double the smaller of the two measurements (22 inches.) Likewise, when you measure up at the shoulder area, take the measurement from the center of the seat out to the door glass and double it. These give you some pretty solid ideas of how big a seat you can accomodate.
