Measuring Properly For a Suit
A properly fitted racing suit not only provides protection against injury, it’s a vital component to maximize your performance behind the wheel. If a race suit doesn’t fit properly and is uncomfortable, your performance could be adversely affected. Accurate measurement of the driver is critical to ensure that the racing suit fits properly and is comfortable throughout a long night of racing.

Racing Suits - What You Need To Know When Choosing A Racing Suit
Safety equipment manufacturers who advertise in Circle Track produce products that carry SFI ratings. A typical rating looks like this: SFI 3.2A/5 where 3.2A is the foundation’s standard for racing suits and 5 is the rating. The higher that rating number, the better the protection. In this example, the number 5 is the most important number you will see.
Most sanctioning bodies and tracks will require you to have a firesuit with a minimum SFI-rating in order to compete. However, that does not mean that you should buy only their minimum. For more information about the SFI -racing standards, please visit: www.sfifoundation.com

Drivers come in all shapes and sizes so racing suit manufacturers offer a wide variety of standard sizes as well as custom “MTO” (made-to-order) racing suits. Most drivers can find a standard sized suit that will meet their performance and fit requirements, while other drivers are harder to fit and will require a custom suit.
Getting the proper measurement for standard racing suits require a few basic measurements of the driver. Standard racing suit measurements include the chest, waist, inseam, neck, height, and weight. Custom MTO race suits require additional measurements such as sleeve length, center back length, natural waist circumference, rise, thigh, hip, collar bone-to-crotch inseam (and bra size for female racers). Getting accurate measurements is critical to getting a racing suit that is comfortable and fits you properly.
