The long wait is over, and right now the harnesses are en route to our shores and headed to track paddocks near you. Starting in September, approved Quick Fit and Quick Fit Pro harnesses for the E82 1 Series, the E90 and E92 3 Series will be in stock.
What’s so great about these harnesses? They integrate into factory safety systems offering a higher level of safety than a simple bolted in 4 point harness. In most cases, a Simple adapter is all that gets bolted to the car, and the rest of the harnesses plugs into factory seat belt receptacles. This is perfect for cars that still see street use, leaving intact all factory 3 point harnesses.
The difference between Quick Fit and Quick Fit Pro? Quick Fit Pro harnesses have a different geometry and use a central cam lock which allows for use of the HANS device, where the standard Quick Fit is more of a standard 4 point shape using a typical buckle. Both are legal for road use in the USA, conforming to FMVSS209 which regulates primary vehicle restraints.
Available in Black, Blue, Red, and Silver.

Hopefully you had a chance to watch the PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge that aired this weekend on Speed. HMS motorsport was proud to be a supporter of this program with all drivers using Stilo helmets and Schroth Racing belts. It was a cool program PEAK Antifreeze and Michael Waltrip Racing put together and we would like to say congrats to Patrick Staropoli for winning the 2013 PEAK SCD Challenge.
We’re blowing out a bunch of BMW Authorized M Collection stuff. Please either check our specials page, or take a trip over to EBay to see all the stuff we have.
This stuff is of very high quality – brought to the USA when BMW decided not to import it themselves. So it’s absolutely legitimate authorized product.
Stay cool out there in this heat wave!
We hope you had a great Fourth of July, and long weekend. We are reopening for business as usual today at 9AM Eastern Time. All web orders placed while we were closed will be processed today. As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call!
Well we did it, we built our first SEMA car. The TAKATA racing Scion FR-S was at the Toyo Tire display in Las Vegas. Thank you to all that have helped us out with with the build of our car. For pictures of the build check out the TAKATA Racing USA page. For those of you who missed it the next stop will be at the PRI show in Orlando FL November 29-Decmber 1. Come check it out for yourself.
The main focus of this build is, to provide the track day enthusiast, with car that can be both a daily driver and an effective road course, drift, or drag car. Our selection of performance and safety equipment ensures that the driver is planted in the seat and on the track. Every part was carefully selected to keep the car functional, but aggressive in styling, performance, and safety. TAKATA is safety – Safety First.
It was another weekend for the record books at Indy. The GRAND-AM and NASCAR Nationwide teams got to roll through the hallowed gates for the first time. On Saturday Brad Keselowski cruised to victory with Penske teammate Sam Hornish Jr finishing second giving Roger Penske his 100th NASCAR win.
In the Nationwide race the top five finishers all had Schroth Racing belts. On Sunday it was Jimmie Johnson who got to kiss the bricks for the fourth time. Jimmie dominated the race and finished 4.758 second ahead of runner-up Kyle Busch scoring his 58th career win. Jimmie Johnson winning the race was a big story but so was the 4th place finish by his teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. who took over the Points lead for the first time since 2004.
The Top 7 finishers of Sundays Cup race were all using Schroth Racing Belts.
It’s been a long wait for us on these, but the seat backs have passed their strength tests with flying colors, and now we’re ready to start shipping these QuickFit and QuickFit Pro harnesses.
They work the same way the other QuickFit Harnesses work, which is to say they are extremely easy to install and use. They attach to factory mounting locations and require only a couple tabs be installed on outboard locations. Once the initial installation is completed, you’re free to put them in and take them out as simply as you would buckle and unbuckle any normal seatbelt buckle.
Remember, the difference between QuickFit and QuickFit Pro is that the QuickFit Pro is designed to be used with a HANS device and has a central Cam Lock instead of a more conventional buckle. Read more below about each option:

Our first container of Cobra Seats has arrived! We have a full selection of all models of FIA 2012 racing shells with the new Pro-Fit™ system. Pro-Fit™ provides for different thickness of back, butt, and thigh support cushions to optimize the fit of the seat. Drivers sharing a car can use different inserts to improve the fit rather than using loose pieces of foam or other less desirable material.
Our new Misano, Daytona, and Monaco seats now have integrated mounts for a 6-point sub-strap built into the bottom of the seat. This make it the perfect replacement seat for your Porsche or Corvette that does double duty for street and track days. This is a first in the industry and designed specifically for the US market demands.
Last weekend of racing resulted in big wins for NASCAR’s Joey Logano at Pocono and IndyCar’s Justin Wilson at Texas!
Joey, in his #20 Home Depot Toyota, battled with his mentor Mark Martin for the last few laps and at the end nudged Mark out of the way for the pass that led him to victory. It was a well earned win and his second in the Cup series. His first win was back in 2009 at a rain shortened event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Joey has been doing much better this year with a few wins in Nationwide and good finishes in Cup. This win will get him closer to a shot to make the Chase for the first time in his career. We wish you luck Joey!
Justin Wilson took the checkered flag after starting only 17th in the field. With two laps leader Graham Rahal slide wide on turn 4 and contacted the wall – it was just enough for Justin to pull past him on the back straight. Justin held the lead for the last 1.5 laps and Graham managed to hold on to his cobbled car to finish a frustrating second. This was justins as he went a bit too wide and contacted the wall in turn 4but in the end a error causing a crash by Graham Rahal in the 4th turn with two laps left opened the door to Justin. This was his first win on an oval and his first win since Watkins Glen in 2009. Justin uses a SCHROTH Formula belt with 2″ laps and double shoulder belts.
