Racewear manufacturer Sparco has been announced as Austrian Formula One team Red Bull Racing’s Technical Racewear Supplier. The partnership will see Sparco provide the Red Bull drivers and trackside crew with its products.
Both Red Bull drivers will be sporting the new Superleggera suits along with X-Light+ shoes, Arrow Biotech gloves and Sparco innerwear, all designed in lieu with the team branding. The trackside crew will also wear Sparco’s Competition overalls and Tide Meco gloves.
Speaking on the partnership, Christian Horner, Oracle Red Bull Racing Team principal and CEO, commented:
“Ensuring that our drivers and our Race Team are kept as safe as possible is always our first priority. Sparco has been at the forefront of racewear safety for more than four decades and we’re delighted to welcome them to the Team. The fact that their dedication to safety is matched by the pursuit of performance and lightness, key considerations in racing, makes the collaboration even more exciting.“
Aldino Bellazzini, Sparco President and CEO, added:
“Sparco is a technologically driven corporation characterised by continuous research and development to meet all the best performance, safety and quality standards. We look at this partnership as an opportunity to further challenge ourselves. This is the reason behind the long-term collaborations and partnerships we have already developed with several different players in motorsport. We strongly believe that Oracle Red Bull Racing will represent a huge opportunity for Sparco to continue and progress on this path and we are honoured they have chosen Sparco for the upcoming season and beyond.“
