B8 (NEW!)

The B8 holds the driver at anangle which will suit regular production sports cars. It is ideal for losingvehicle weight, attaining great feel from the chassis, and providing the driverwith a perfect driving position for road or track. The strong and rigid twinskin construction, first pioneered by Tillett in 1999, is extremely light andcompact. It is especially good for taller drivers wishing to lower themselves,without sacrificing any comfort on long journeys. The ergonomic B8 is based onour highly acclaimed B1 shape. Drivers weighing up to approximately 120 kg, arewell supported in the B8 with little or no padding, making it ideal for usingas an XL version of our B5 seat.

The B8 uses all the brackets that arecurrently available for the B6 and B7 FIA race seats. This includes the Lotusbrackets EBF2, EB4, EB5 and EB6. A B8-43 cut edge version is offered tofit a large driver in many brands of super narrow cars. The two edge cutoptions are, the B8-43 and the B8-44.5, which is more suited to a saloon carsuch as a Nissan GTR or Porsche. The swept away hip area and the newly designedcrotch and shoulder holes allow use of a standard three point seat belt, or afull racing harness. The shoulder belt holes have been made tall enough so thata Hans device can be used.

The B8 seat is very light at 4.6 kg. The optional Dinamica suede panel set adds 1 kg and we recommended thisfor daily road use. (All weightsquoted are + or – 10%).

The B8 seats have four types of standard bracket options and three for the Lotus Elise/Exige;
TB F1 brackets made from 6mm anodised aluminium and point inwards under the seat.
TB F5 brackets are the same design as the TB F1 but point outwards.
TB5 is a powder coated 5mm thick aluminium version of the outward pointing TB F5.
TB FIA aluminium billet brackets point outwards and are used in the FIA crash tests.
