The authoritative Italian company Sparco, which has been producing clothing and shoes for various racing series for years, has become an official partner of Red Bull Racing.
The team’s key drivers will receive Superleggera overalls, Arrow Biotech gloves and X-light+ boots that meet the highest safety standards, while mechanics will receive Competition overalls and Tide Meca gloves.
The Superleggera suit, homologated to FIA 8856-2018, is the successor to the historic Sparco suit of the same name, which was already the lightest in Formula 1 in the early 2000s.
Christian Horner, Team Principal: “Our top priority is to ensure maximum safety for riders and team members. Sparco has been at the forefront of safety racing apparel for over four decades and we are delighted to welcome them to the team.”
