Rorty Aluminium Race Seat

The Rorty Aluminium Race Seat is a lightweight aluminium race seat that is adaptable to just about any off-road / track vehicle. With the Rorty seat bases, it mounts to the floor of your Rorty buggy or to almost any off-road or track vehicle.

“I just made a race seat with your plans…You were right, it was easy.” Leonel Claus, Germany.

This design is very easy to customise to your requirements. Make it wider or taller, remove the wings, the choice is yours. Water jet, plasma or laser cutting is quite ecomomical when you take into account the time saving, and it makes for a very neat job. DXF’s allow you to get it cut quickly at your local cutter.

Most fibreglass and blow-moulded polypropylene seats weigh well in excess of 5kg [11lbs] yet this seat weighs just 4.9kg [10.5lbs].

Purchase of the manual and DXF files licences the purchaser to cut and construct 2 Rorty aluminium race seats.

For aluminium trims used to finish the seat edges and holes visit Johnson Roll Forming. Profiles 850, 219, 357, 873, 897 can all be used depending on the specific application on the seat. These trims add edge strength as well as removing sharp edges. Pinchweld can be used where strength is not required (refer to the manual).
