Sparco Circuit QRT Competition Seat
Let's face it. Your OEM seats were designed for general comfort for a wide variety of body types. When it comes to performance driving, you end up expending energy and focus on keeping your body planted. An aftermarket seat is one of the best upgrades to improve your driving experience and lower lap times.
The Circuit QRT is an ultra-light competition seat designed for circuit use and to provide addtional head and neck protection. Made from aramadic fiber-reinforced fiberglass with all-new QRT Technology, the Circuit QRT has an ultra-light shell. The Circuit QRT includes integrated bolsters to protect the head. This seat can be used with a FHR (frontal head restraint) device for even greater protection. The ultra-light shell is wrapped in an impact-absorbing material and fire retardant fabric that helps hold the body. The Circuit QRT is FIA approved.
Designed and developed at the Sparco OEM Composite Laboratory in Italy, QRT is a patented state-of-the-art technical process, based on aerospace technologies. QRT creates an unparalleled mechanical strength to weight ratio. This innovative production method generates the lightest composite seat shells currently on the market; in fact, it guarantees a reduction in total weight of up to 30% compared to traditional production methods.
The Circuit QRT provides excellent fitment for a halo seat, especially for smaller cockpits. We run the Circuit in our Spec Corvette racecar, a car notoriously difficult to fit aftermarket seats in. While the integrated head bolsters provide additional protection for the track, they can limit visibility for street driving and may not pass your local regulations. For a fantastic non-halo seat we heartily recommend the Sparco Evo QRT which is available in a number of different sizes to fit a plethora of drivers.
The Circuit QRT best fits a small/narrow driver - up to a 32" pants size. If you need a larger halo seat, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can recommend other available options.
