RaceQuip’s safety apparel and gear will be available for purchase at Road America’s Paddock Shop and RaceQuip will also have a presence on-site at Road America events through venue signage while displaying its full line of products for competitors at many Road America events, which includes full bodied stock cars. In addition, RaceQuip representatives will be on hand at various events to answer questions and provide support to the race teams and attendees who are interested in, or use RaceQuip safety equipment.
"RaceQuip produces a wide range of auto racing safety gear for both the professional and club racer. This diversity in our product line allows us to cater to the full spectrum of racing participants regardless of sanction or series," said Patrick Utt, RaceQuip President. "We are very excited to be working with Road America and offering our products to such a wide competitor base at Road America events."
First introduced in 1975, the RaceQuip brand has built a reputation for manufacturing and distributing high quality auto racing safety equipment at affordable prices. RaceQuip continues to build on that reputation and in 2006, the Safe-Quip and RaceQuip brands were joined together under Vesta Motorsports, USA to offer expanded U.S. manufacturing capabilities and further compliment the line of value-priced, quality built SFI rated auto racing fire retardant suits, shoes, nomex gloves, Snell SA helmets, and SFI & FIA seat belts & harness sets. The SFI and FIA certified auto racing and motorsports safety gear manufactured by RaceQuip is designed for use in many racing series and sanctions, such as: IMSA, ARCA, Chump Car, Lemons Racing, NASCAR, NASA, NHRA, NMCA, NMRA, NTPA, SCCA and SVRA.
"We are thrilled to welcome RaceQuip into the Road America family of marketing partners," said Mike Kertscher, programs manager for Road America. "RaceQuip safety equipment is widely used by competitors at many of our events and having the opportunity to sell quality RaceQuip safety gear and provide customer service to our many competitors during our events is just one more example of how we are improving the experience for everyone at Road America.”
