Ok you got me, the IMSA or WEC logos can’t be purchased or used by anyone who is not actually in the series. I must point out that I didn’t figure that out on my own, I had to contact DBK to find out what was missing.

A very knowledgeable group can be a tough crowd to play to!!

Also missing the VP Fuel patch and the Patron patch... but still looks pretty cool

I think the jacket and car go hand in hand. A must buy.

Update

Gentlemen,

I just had lunch with Fred Nader and he gave me the jacket to take to Daytona. I asked him about sizes, especially for our really tall members and women. He said no problem as they will all be custom made for each owner. You’ll be fitted just like for the drivers suit and you can tell them if you want it a bit looser to fit over other clothing or tighter fitting if you’ve got a ripped physique like Shawn Beard. You can also specify if you want it above your hips like a bomber jacket or at your hips. Ladies jackets will flatter their superior shape. On the back of the collar is the sewn in logo shown below. Added to this logo you can have your name or your car’s serial #, but not both.

There are no patches sewn on to this jacket. All of the Ford and sponsor logos are sewn in. All of the thread used to make the jacket and logos is fire resistant Nomex thread just like the jacket itself.

If you’re at Daytona this weekend look me up and check it out. I’ll be up in the Rolex Lounge most of the time. All the best.

Chip

I bet these will sell better than the suits (as not everyone needs a drivers suit but everyone needs a jacket)!!!

"if you’ve got a ripped physique like Shawn Beard"


I am confused by your tactics!! My physique can be described in a lot of ways.....I don't think ripped is one:bang:rofl


Is this jacket guaranteed to protect me from the "Invisible Fire" also??

I'm in.
I need a more colorful Sparco jacket and FIA 8856-2000 spec matches SFI 3.2A/5 which is required for NHRA Stock/Super Stock.

How about an option for Sparco to put our name and forum name on the front?

The penultimate Ford GT Forum rally wear?

Where would we get fitted?
I think I would want it loose like my Carhart. Not tight like my fire suit.
