Tillett at Autosport Car Show 2017

The Autosport show was a great success. The new B6 Screamer was on display to the public for the first time. This next evolution of the popular B6 shape is due to be released in the spring of 2017.

Also on the stand were two products showcasing Tillett Racings Seat’s ability to develop products for other companies. The Trekinetic wheelchair is a fabulous product that is fully developed and is seen in the latest Assassins Creed film.

The Airloop shock mitigation seat was also shown and Tillett Racing Seats has been involved in the development of this from its inception by Seactive. This fast rib boat seat is amazingly effective at damping out the waves and is super lightweight.

The T11 WH Handmade

A big problem in karting is bruised and swollen hips.

Drivers with wider than average hip bones end up cutting holes in the seat and weakening the structure.

Stop the bleeding and pain using our range of wide hip T11 handmade seats.

The T11 WH is available in sizes S, Man, and ML.


Introducing our latest kart racing seat, the New Style T11

This 2016 model T11 is made by an entirely new process that gives a dense fibre fill and perfect consolidation of the composite.

The new seat has the smooth surfaces of the T12 but also the huge size range and rigidity options that made the old model T11 shape so useful for tuning the handling.

The performance of the prototypes was exceptionally successful in numerous brands of karts, winning 6 major CIK race meetings and coming 1st and 2nd in the 2015 World KZ Championship.

New Ultra low profile seat washer and bolt sets

With todays hard shell rib protectors the instances of race suit damage are high especially if they do not have a protective layer like the P1.

Therefore we have introduced these low profile seat bolt/washer combinations to give a flat surface to the seat without compromising the ability of the bolt head to twist in the washer.

Announcing a new range of T11 kart seats with wider tops

For someone with a wide chest and narrow hips it can be difficult finding a seat that fits.

The T11 WT (Wide Top) range is larger across the chest dimension and takes away the gap down by the hips.

The use of a hard rib protector like the Special Tillett Personalised rib protector or even the R4, can increase this dimension significantly and this is where the T11 WT range can be of real benefit.

The T11 WT is available in all rigidities with a size range of S, Manetti, MS and ML with a XScd T5Rev WT size for the smaller drivers.


The B6F is the first Tillett Seat to be FIA homologated

Narrow, super rigid and 7 kg the B6 F is like no other FIA seat. The B6 F fits into a huge range of limited space cockpits which far exceeds any other FIA seats in the market. Now there is finally a serious race seat option for historic race cars where other seats simply will not fit.

The B6 F not only has side mounting points but an upper mounting point and a headrest mounting point for ultimate strength and security.

Made by injection and cut by robot every B6F has a guaranteed thickness and consistency of moulding that other makes cannot match.

Covering is unnecessary on this seat but it is available as an extra cost option.
Prices start from £444.00 plus vat for the black GRP finish.
