This seat has built in solid side head protection with the same high side support as the Endurance seat. The Race has the additional benefit of a more tailored design to match the shape of the body ensuring optimal comfort. The Race range comes in various fabrications to make sure we can manufacture a seat bespoke to your needs.

Additional Features

  • FIA homologated – Each seat will have an initial homologation valid for a minimum of 5 years, after which the seat can be returned to us for inspection and if we are happy with the condition of the seat, for a small charge, will extend the homologation of the seat for a further two years.  Example, if you buy a Motordrive seat on 1 January 2016 it will initially be valid until the end of 2021 (giving you 6 years life) and then, subject to re-inspection, Motordrive can extend the homologated life of the seat for a further 2 years until  the end of 2023.  As homologation now runs in calendar years a seat bought mid-year will still follow this ruling such that if bought at the end of a year the initial homologation would be valid for 5 years with the possibility of a further 2 years following re-inspection.

When designing our Race seat we started from a clean sheet of paper (actually a computer screen); the challenge was to create a seat that mimics the shape of the body. The Race seat does just that with a tailored design that ensures the occupant is not only more comfortable but also much safer as each part of the body is protected by a seat which mirrors its shape. An additional benefit of the tailored shape of the Motordrive Race seat is that it enables the driver to feel the car’s performance through their entire body, giving maximum feedback as to how it is handling. When designing this seat we also wanted to ensure that the driver’s head is protected without compromising visibility; this was achieved by incorporating a winged head restraint that comes far enough forward to ensure protection but that does not protrude into the driver’s line of sight. The final piece of the jigsaw for us is to offer a bespoke fitting service which allows the customer to have the internal foaming of the seat matched to their individual requirements. This service is optional however it offers the opportunity for the customer to achieve optimum fit and seat performance.

Safety, Performance, Fit & Style

All Motordrive seats are FIA homologated and are available with custom fit to make sure that we offer a seat that is perfect for you – whatever your shape and size.

When choosing a seat it is vital that you choose a model that fits your size. Choosing an ill-fitting seat could mean that you are uncomfortable, could cause you to suffer pain in your back, shoulders or legs and in extreme circumstances could actually mean that you are not safe. For these reasons all of our seats are produced bespoke to the individual.

You can either complete our online contact form or simply call us so we can talk through your requirements. Alternatively you can visit us in Leyland for a hands on comprehensive fitting; either way we will work with you to determine the best model and fit of seat for you. There is no extra charge for this service, it’s just how we work to get the best for you. At our showroom in Leyland we have available the full complement of Motordrive seats to try, along with an experienced team who will tailor the internal padding of the seat to your shape and preference. We are also very happy to have you and your car visit us if you feel a trial fit of the seat in the car is something you would like.

The personalisation doesn’t stop with the fit though. We offer a range of coloured finishes, both on the shell and on the cover and cushions, and we offer embroidery of names and logos on covers; you can see examples of our ‘art work’ across the website.

All seats come in three shell fabrications:-

Composite: – this seat is made mainly from fibre glass with some elements of composite material to give it extra strength. This is a quality seat that will perform well at all levels.

Hybrid: – the next step up is the hybrid seat; this seat is carbon and kevlar and is 30% stiffer than the equivalent composite seat. You have much more feedback through your backside to feel what the car is doing, therefore enabling you to set your car up more accurately. The kevlar seat is also lighter than the equivalent composite seat.

Carbon: – finally we have the full carbon seat; basically the ultimate. This seat is the lightest in the range, 15% stiffer again than the equivalent Kevlar seat and 45% stiffer than the equivalent composite seat giving total feedback as to how the car is behaving and therefore enabling the driver to achieve optimum set-up.
