OMP Racing, the Genoese company with over 40 years of history, a leader in the field of design and creation of safety equipment for the car racing sector and Scuderia Toro Rosso have renewed their important cooperation agreement for the supply of safety equipment and technical clothing for the race drivers and the entire team, for its participation in the upcoming Formula 1 World Championship.

The agreement also provides for the possibility of installing new super-light seatbelts inside the cockpit of the STR8, this year’s car, which will be officially presented on February 4. These seatbelts have been produced by OMP with Dyneema® "the world's strongest fiber". Developed and made by the R&D Centre of the Genoese company after two years of study and research, the belts are the result also of a recent agreement for a worldwide exclusive use agreement with the producer of this special material.

March 15 is the official date of the start of the 2013 Season for the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, at the Australian Grand Prix, where Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, the Faenza team’s young drivers, will wear technical gear, fire resistant suits, shoes, underwear and gloves made by OMP, as will team personnel.

The OMP fire resistant suits and underwear are the result of constant, ongoing research performed by the company in Genoa. The fruit of this is the patented "Dry System" for suits and underwear, that perform particularly well in terms of weight and comfort, thanks to bringing together materials of the latest generation and innovative technologies, with a manufacturing procedure that still bears the hand-crafted imprint.

The Scuderia Toro Rosso drivers will also wear the latest shoes created with a brand new OMP HI-TECH technology, able to optimize sensitivity for driving, thermal isolation and comfort.

"Renewing the agreement with Scuderia Toro Rosso is yet another testament to our leadership in accessories for the racing sector, and above all, is a confirmation of the continuing technical evolution of our products used at the highest levels in Motorsport,” commented Paolo Delprato, Vice President and C.E.O. of OMP."

"OMP and the Toro Rosso team represent two points of excellence for Made in Italy in the world of racing, a sector where performance and safety are naturally brought together with innovation, high technology and creativity."

"We are pleased to continue our relationship with OMP," commented Gianfranco Fantuzzi, Scuderia Toro Rosso’s team manager. "Over the years, we have developed an excellent relationship and OMP is always attentive to our requests, supplying items to our specific needs to the highest standards, while always meeting the tight deadlines that are part of working in the Formula 1 environment. And of course, as an Italian team, we appreciate not only the excellent quality but also the Italian style element of everything we get from OMP."
