Sparco has dramatically simplified what is arguably one its quintessential
entry-level racing seat. Gone are multiple colors and shell types, as well as
customizable cushions and added HANS compatibility. The EVO is not a single seat but a family of
similarly-built seats, each one suited to a specific body type. Here is
a quick breakdown:
- Sparco EVO QRT: Medium Build
- Sparco EVO II QRT: Medium Build, Tall
- Sparco EVO II US: Larger Build, Narrower Shoulders
For more precise dimensions, refer to the chart below.
The Sparco EVO family has a long and distinguished family line. It started as
the Sparco REV, which was an outstanding seat in
its own right. That seat was
improved based on input from drivers in the DTM and ITC racing series, and is
intended to give an especially liberating driving position, providing just
enough bolstering to precisely hold the driver in competition without
restricting motion or vision. Here is what you can expect in each seat:
Sparco EVO QRT
The EVO QRT competition seat has been updated and redesigned. The EVO QRT has been updated with a reduced shoulder bolster size that allows for smaller cockpits but can allow for a medium size driver. Also the shoulder harness belt openings have been raised to accommodate a taller driver. The EVO QRT series of seats feature the most back angle rake of all Sparco seats for a very comfortable driving position.
Sparco EVO II QRT
The EVO II QRT is 7lbs lighter than the previous version. The Evo II QRT introduces re-engineered seat proportions, which provide greater ergonomics. The result is a seat that is both taller and slightly wider than the EVO QRT for taller drivers. The seat belt slots are also repositioned to sit more level with the driverís shoulders.
Sparco EVO II US
The EVO II US does not paint a particularly athletic picture of our
nation's drivers but I suppose we have earned that. It is even wider
in the seat portion than the EVO III yet a little bit narrower at the shoulders.
QRT Technology gives an unparalleled mechanical strength/weight ratio for fiberglass composite racing seats. QRT Technology save 30% of the weight when compared to standard fiberglass technology. The main benefit is that QRT seats come close to the weight of a carbon fiber seat at the price of a fiberglass composite seat.

- •Side-Mounting Points
