Tech Talk #1: Driver safety gear

07 July 2018 - vBlog by Brad

Welcome to Gull Tech Talks, a look behind the scenes at the world of BNT V8s racing. In this episode, Gull athlete Brad Lathrope talks us through the protective gear needed to stay safe on the track.

Obviously, when you're driving a car at over 200 km/h, you need to take every precaution to ensure you're as safe as you can be. Brad gives us a look at all the kit he wears each time he gets behind the wheel, from helmet and fire-retardant suits to special shoes and gloves. Spoiler alert: you'll also find out what Brad's favourite colour is.
