New Carbon/ Carbon-Kevlar seats with custom trim now available exclusively from BRG

Composite Worx has created a compelling new entry into the performance seat category. Now available exclusively in North America through British Racing Group, The SP-1 is manufactured in Italy to extremely high standards. Each seat is laminated with high quality pre-preg (dry) carbon and cured in their new state-of-the-art autoclave. High temperature and high pressure assure perfect surface finish and a optimal structure.Weight is very low at 6.61 lbs (3KG).

The SP-1 has been designed specifically for applications where space is a concern but where performance can not be sacrificed. Ideal for the Lotus Elise/ Exige/ Europa/ 2-Eleven, Tesla Roadster, Open Speedster, Vauxhall 220, Caterham, Toniq Ultima GTR, etc. Available in single or double skin, each seat can be specified with Carbon or Carbon/ Kevlar construction. Skidproof as standard, an optional suede cover in your choice of color with BRG embroidered Logo is available. You may also select stitch color. Custom Logos are also available on request. E-mail jpeg files of requested logo to parts@britishracinggroup.com for more information.

Brackets are included to mount the SP-1 to the Lotus factory rails or for universal fitment.

SOLD AS A PAIR. Upgrade pricing for items like harness selection and seat pads include both seats (set).

These seats are made to order, by hand, and require approximately 6-8 weeks to fabricate. Payment is required at time of purchase and is non-refundable. This item may not be returned except for shipping damage or manufacturing defect.

Very Nice seat...what is the difference between "single or double skin"? One or two sides in CF?

And just to verify the pricing reflects two seats

Double skin is finished on the backs as well as the front.

Price is for a pair. Really nice value especially when you consider the custom trim options with the pad.

Is it anything we as potential Composite Worx customers need to be concerned about....or was it strictly a business decision on BRG's part?


EDIT: Never mind, just saw the posting on their website about no longer utilizing retailers.

I think our statement says enough. I'm not going into details on the public forum beyond what is posted above. I will simply say that our two companies see business ethics and the concerns and responsibilities to our clients and corporate partners very differently.
