Around the holidays, things get a bit crazy around the Xtreme Xperience office. Calls pour in from the everywhere, with shoppers looking to buy the ULTIMATE gift for their adrenaline seeking friends and family. Many of our participants are huge fans of specific supercars in our fleet. Meanwhile, several others arrive to the track purely to feel the rush from driving at high speeds. Nevertheless, we believe that everyone who books an Xtreme Xperience, is not only a car lover at heart, but also has driving in their soul!
Since we cannot bring all of our fans to track with us every day, we think it’s important that we equip you with the best gear to keep the driver in you alive – and prepared for your next day at the track! We consulted with our team of instructors and staff to find this year’s best gear to accompany your next Supercar Track Xperience. Here are some of the driving enthusiast must haves!
Xtreme Xperience’s Picks:
Safety is always first at the racetrack! Which is why we are starting with an essential piece of racing gear – the helmet! Here is one of our favorite motorsport helmets, that won’t break the bank.
Simpson Super Bandit Racing Helmet: This helmet is available in black or white, and always has the look of Top Gear’s Stig written all over it! The bandit is Snell SA 2010 rated, compatible with head and neck restraints, and they included helmet bag for travel, and more. Several of our instructors use this helmet, and it comes highly recommended. Right now, you can find it for less than $500 online, here.
Hands on the wheel at all times, and eyes up means you better have a good grip on the wheel. Great for long drives, chilly or warm weather, and even while you’re at the track – we’ve got the gloves for you.
Autodromo Stringback Driving Gloves: Available in two colors, black and burgundy leather, they offer grip and protection, while the breathable cotton material keeps your hands cool and dry! Not to mention they’re some of the best looking gloves made specifically for driving. You can find these online, for about $125, here.
We were tired of getting stuck with the cheap and cheesy enthusiast driving gear on the internet, so we decided to make some of our own apparel to keep us satisfied. Designed in-house and centered around our instructors’ needs at the track, we put together something for everyone. Including some of our favorite slogans and expressions, straight from the mouths of our fans!
Xtreme Xperience Apparel: We have some awesome t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts and other track-wear for the fans who want to take the Xtreme Xperience look home with them. We only sell the products that we test and wear at the track, so if we love it, we’re sure you will too!
