Two race drivers who shared the same passion for motorsport founded Sparco in 1973. More than twenty years later, Sparco's ambition for producing the safest driving suit possible, is still the number one priority for the company.
Thousands of professional and amateur racing drivers rely on Sparco every year to protect them in the unfriendliest environment, the cockpit of a racecar. At speeds of more than 200 mph, and temperatures above 120 degrees, a driver must be 100% confident in their safety equipment. Therefore, the world's top professional drivers choose Sparco, more than any other brand.
Drivers such as Jeff Gordon, Mika Hakkinen, Alex Zanardi, Scott Sharp, Bobby Labonte, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jimmy Vasser, Jacques Villeneuve, Ralf Schumacher, Dario Franchitti, Bill Elliott, Paul Tracy, David Coulthard, Jean Alesi , and more than 20 other professional drivers in Formula One, Nascar Winston Cup, CART, and IRL, demand Sparco for their safety needs.
