Corbeau Seats based near Hastings in East Sussex are supplying the Motorsport Race seat, safety harnesses and brackets that Rebecca will be using in her Production Boxster race car this season.
On Tuesday 5th February 2013 Rebecca visited their site to have her ‘fitting’. This consisted of playing a game of Musical Chairs, only by herself and with no music! The 2012 model of the Revenge seat looked like the perfect solution with its deep side supports, improved energy absorbing foam and HANS compatibility only cementing the decision.
Corbeau continually develop ideas and technology in their motorsport team, which means they can offer the very latest in comfort and safety. It is a family run business offering the passion and friendliness that you could expect from a 50-year-old company.
To celebrate 50 years in business, they have a special anniversary edition of the Revenge seat, which was unveiled at the International Autosport Show last month. It has a Kevlar FIA approved racing shell and features gold detailing. Rebecca’s seat however, although includes the Kevlar, will be a completely bespoke design incorporating her plan to compete at Le Mans and maybe a dash of pink!
With Jason Plato using Corbeau and entry levels seats start as low as £183; it makes this safety item a ‘no brainer’!
