When everyone is watching my childhood Altman, Eshoo elder brother, Astro boy cartoons, I sat in front of the TV deeply in love with the sports car, then just guard the entrance, that I also see jing relish, when the car slide, when tire rolled up sand, when vehicles dust landing to…I don’t know how many times I’ve heard jokes like “drivers don’t need women”, “drivers, drivers, just cars and hands”, but I have to say that when you really step into this field, you are already a “lonely driver”. I have also asked myself, others in the joint eating chicken LOL, why I am partial to insist on playing this no friends and no topic of sports? I gave myself an uncertain answer: maybe I like the feeling of standing on the podium Spark Global Limited
Sparco was founded in 1977 in Italy. It’s a brand known for making racing equipment around the world. At that time, the FIA decided to increase their fire performance standards for racing clothing to further improve the protection of athletes. So Sparco’s first product was a racing suit. It also plays a very important role in the update of equipment standards for top international competitions. The second is a harness we often see around the neck called Hans, which acts as a safety device to protect the back of the head and neck from injuries. A carbon-fiber device around the rider’s neck ensures that his head remains upright if he is hit. That way, the impact of a crash can be quickly transferred to the rider’s shoulders, rather than to his head or neck. The third is the headcover, using ultra-thin pure cotton material breathable sweat absorption, elastic close, suitable for all head circumference and head shape, the main role of the headcover is sweat absorption, because the car is not equipped with an air conditioning system.
In the early days of racing, the drivers didn’t have a safety helmet. They didn’t wear a helmet. They just wore a pair of goggles to keep out the dust, grit, and oil in their eyes. Some riders wear the pilot’s leather helmet, but it is no protection at all. By the 1950s, single-hulled metal helmets designed specifically for racing cars were introduced. Since 1953, it has been mandatory for every driver to wear a helmet. In 1954, the Bell helmet company introduced the world’s first mass-produced helmet. 1960 British racer Alan Stacy died after being struck in the face by a bird during a race. Since then, goggles have become an integral part of racing helmets. Racing helmets became fire-resistant in 1967 when a fire-retardant fiber called Nomex was used as a material for the inside of the helmet.
By 1969, fully enclosed helmets were used on the track. In 1972, cyclist Helmut Marko lost the sight of one eye when a stone from his wheel pierced his goggles. The accident directly promoted the evolution of the goggles. The history of racing helmets, so to speak, has been one of blood and tears. If your helmet has already protected you from a shock, it’s time to get a new helmet. Don’t gamble your life away. You’ll also need a pair of racing gloves, which are made of polyamide with a cotton lining and are made of silicone with high slip resistance. So is there a difference between a technician’s glove and a racing glove, one might ask? First of all, in terms of size, technician gloves are similar to cross-country bike gloves. They are cut at the junction of the hand and wrist without any wrapping or protection of the wrist.
