With their reliability and high safety standards, they do their part so that drivers can concentrate on driving – and winning!”

Besides the racing shells in the racing truck, top products of RECARO Automotive seating are also installed in the team truck of S.L. Trucksport 30. Two premium commercial vehicle seats of the type RECARO C 7000 are ensuring optimum comfort for the crew during the long trips to the circuits and back home.
