TAKATA all around you

Racer´s Voice

In a rally raid race, the driver fights both lateral and vertical G forces. When I first began rallying, I used another brand of seat belt and found that it would loosen on me right away. But I was amazed when I first tried the Takata seatbelt back in 2008. I was blown away by how well the belt holds you in place. The Takata seat belt has been my favorite ever since.
