The Sparco Brand was first conceived in 1977 by a pair of racing drivers that shared a passion for Motorsport safety. In 1978 they created their first race suit, and production began on other items of safety clothing, including racing boots, race gloves and motorsport helmets. Sparco’s popularity and strength continually grew and in 1983 they won their first of many F1 world championships. Additionally, in the same year, the World Rally Championship winning Lancia was fitted with Sparco seats. It was these victories amongst many others that cemented their presences in the motorsport world.
