Formula Racing - Open Car Motorsport Accessories
Formula racing is a form of motorsport that requires a select range of specialised safety equipment for the style of open-top and open-wheel cars. Formula series like F1, Formula E, F2, F3, F4 and Indy Car use dedicated track-specific cars that are highly regulated and designed to perform on a track only.
These single-seater cars often require high safety standards for helmets and racewear due to the exposed nature of the driver within the car.
