Racetech race seats are regarded by many in the driving seat as the best in the world. Our composite and carbon fibre race seats are fitted to thousands of race cars, touring cars, rally cars, drift, drag and speedway cars. We keep people racing fast, safe – and we do it in ways that break the mould for safety, comfort and performance.

 From our HQ in Wellington, New Zealand, we design, test, manufacture and sell our comprehensive range of race seats, alongside other top-class race products, to iconic racing marques around the world.

Racetech seats and products perform. They’re comfortable; they fit perfectly, they feel secure, they connect you with your car in ways that give you the confidence to safely push your boundaries. We get that need to do better. It drives us, too—that competitiveness.

We know only too well that thing that happens when you feel the seat wrap around you. Suddenly what you see ahead of you becomes your world. That adrenalin rush and focus is addictive, calling you back week after week, race after race. It drives you to shave fractions off last week’s lap time, to out-position a rival, to throw everything you have at being as good as you can be.

No other racing seat manufacturer is more concerned about drivers. Our culture and purpose revolve around getting you and every other driver home. That determination to make sure racers get to walk away safely from their time on the track and the road plays out in every aspect of our approach. No detail is too small when it comes to saving lives.

Our commitment carries through to our insistence on quality production. The only price we put on safety is a fair one: we don’t skimp or cut corners—the best costs what it costs.

Our willingness to recognise and address issues stems from that deep Kiwi pragmatism that lets us chase excellence at the expense of tradition. We’re a practical, grounded and free-thinking team with an eye for detail and a steely determination to consistently and carefully introduce the evolutions that, over time, help make racing safer.

We literally help set the standards for keeping drivers safe globally. We are currently a member of the FIA IWG, the Industry Working Group that global body The Federation Internationale De L’Automobile (FIA) consults with. Our team is regularly sought out by national motorsport organisations to assist with improving safety standards and understanding driver safety. Here in Australia, we work closely with many V8 Supercar teams and the TA2 Australia Muscle Car Series supporting them with driver safety.

All of that means that every time you slip into a Racetech race seat, everything we know is right there with you.

We focus on designing, developing and producing the best race seats in the world. In fact, Racetech seats are used by some of the world’s leading teams and constructors, including Porsche, Aston Martin, McLaren, Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, and Australia’s own V8 Supercars and TA2 Series cars.

 Racetech seats are robust and supportive. They’re made that way, and they are that good because we’ve made it our business to know what makes drivers tick. We combine safety, comfort and performance in seats that drivers can depend on and that represent true value for money. They are your added advantage.

Our knowledge and experience make us the world leader in racing seat science. Our patented back mounting gives you solid contact with your vehicle and improves your feel of your race car. Not only does this enhance your performance, you’re also safer racing this way. Tests have shown that if you support and maintain alignment of the head, shoulders, pelvis and thighs, drivers can withstand enormous decelerations with minimal or no injuries.

Our expert team is passionate about the tiny details of your racing machine’s seats, harnesses, and other vital components. For us, performance is about much more than just reducing weight. All Racetech seats have parallel sides for ease of fitting and driver positioning. The lack of flex in the shoulder area of our seats helps reduce fatigue and improves safety. The six-point mounting method we pioneered helps improve car handling and the ability to tune the chassis. These features, and more, literally make the difference between life and death or injury.

With a Racetech seat, you don’t have to pay top dollar to take advantage of our innovative thinking and design. Many of the features in our top-of-the-range seats carry right across our range. No matter which seat you invest in, you still get back-mounting, square shoulders and the simple, nothing-to-fail cooling system that Porsche Works and V8 Supercar drivers swear by.

And when it comes to sizing, no other racing seat manufacturer is more accommodating. We offer you the widest range, and each seat in all our ranges includes an ergonomically moulded removable base cushion and seat geometry that ensures you’re always sitting comfortably.

Choose a Racetech seat. They’re made for people like you. Drivers.



With increased rib support and enhanced head restraint foaming, the new RT4200 Series utilises the widely-respected RT4100 shell geometry but makes improvements in the areas of comfort and safety. The RT4200 is closer in feel through the rib and torso area when compared to our retired RT4009 Series. Racetech signature features such as back-mounting, pronounced thigh support, a moulded base cushion, parallel sides, and flush bosses for ease of mounting are all present, making this seat series hard to beat. Like all Racetech seats, these lightweight, resin-infused shells are crafted in Wellington, New Zealand.

The RT4200 series comprises three sizes all with FIA 8855-1999 approval. For larger drivers, the RT4200THR is 60mm taller and the RT4200WTHR is both 60mm taller and 40mm wider.
