How long has motordrive been making seats?
Motordrive was founded over 30 years ago by Allan, a competitor who realised that the safety and comfort of the seats he was using were not up to the standard they should be.
Not being afraid of a challenge Allan decided to develop and manufacture a composite seat for himself – and from those humble beginnings Motordrive was born!
Pretty soon Motordrive was making FIA approved competition seats in composite and carbon for competitors the world over; from rally champions such as Carlos Saints and Luis Moya, to club enthusiast. To this day Motordrive continues to produce safe, comfortable and affordable seats which are shipped across the world and serve both rally and circuit.
Who am I dealing with at Motordrive Seats?
Motordrive remains a privately owned company.
In October 2014 the Motordrive brand was acquired by Darren Meadows (himself a motorsport competitor). Darren’s enthusiasm and energy for motorsport and competition seating has already delivered exciting developments at Motordrive and the ethos is clear – safety, style and comfort without compromise.
Darren and his team ensure that every seat is manufactured with attention to detail and that motordrive offer the highest standards of customer service.
Customers are offered advice on selecting seats and can choose bespoke finishes such as personal embroidery to have a truly individual seat.
What is especially important at Motordrive is that we offer a seat fitting service, whether in person or by phone/e-mail, to ensure the customer will have the best fitting seat possible. Customers fitted to their Motordrive seat will feel the difference in terms of comfort and protection.
Darren recognises that safety and innovation in motorsport are key and motordrive continually tests existing seats and new designs to offer motordrive seats that are the best that they can be. The FIA approval of the FIA8862-2009 MD seat range is testament to the capabilities of the team at motordrive and they are justly proud of their ability to deliver, with confidence, competition seats to every level of motorsport.
Whilst staying true to its heritage the business is being driven forward in the way you would expect from a privately owned British firm with a lot of pride and a big presence in the world of competition seating.
