"The racewear company "
"Made-to-measure and in your colors from head to toe"
"The racing driver is the most important person in the world"

This start of season was particularly agitated. Like the new fights in F1, a new wind seems to boost each racing category. And, more than ever, the struggles of this beginning of year informed us again that security was in the depth of all car races.

When more and more drivers are realizing the progress represented by the Hans® system, and begin to be interested in Heat Stress,
Stand 21 can offer to help them for a better understanding of these problems that are in direct relation with their race results, by organizing conferences, meetings on racetracks all over the world, sending technical rules ..

More than your supplier, we are your "racing driver engineer".


 

We wish you a successful 2nd part of season.

Constant research for exceptional products


Racing suits:

We are still working on the next generation of ST3000 suit.

A sample was sent to USA for testing by one of the drivers who won the Grand Am race of Watkins Glen, and another is going to be sent to Japan.
This suit, exceptionally breathable and available in several shiny colors will certainly represent the main part of the suits produced in the future by Stand 21.

This product is perfectly included in our brand new "Heat Stress" range and can be one of the answers to the drivers who do not want to suffer anymore of the temperature in their racing car.
During the 24 hours of Le Mans, we supplied a lot of racing drivers with cooling systems, Air Force helmets and, of course, breathable racing suits.

See below an e-mail, sent just after Le Mans, that tells a lot about the assets of these products:
"Thanks. Glad to have had one of your breathable suits, it was a bit warm out there!!"
Piers Johnson.


Go-Kart:

We are now working on a brand new go-kart range that should be available soon.

So keep your ears open at the next newsletters for further information.
