After supporting top Formula 1 drivers like Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher, Sabelt, the industry leader in safety since 1972, has expanded its efforts to assist up-and-coming athletes in both the Formula 4 United States Championship Powered by Honda and the F3 Americas Championship programs.
Not only will each Ligier JS F4 and Ligier JS F3 chassis be equipped with Sabelt’s iconic red and yellow high-tech seat belts, Sabelt will also recognize the competitor who gained the most positions during the event weekend with the Sabelt Hard Charger Award. In both series, the Hard Charger will win a pair of Sabelt racing gloves, and at the end of the season, the overall series champion will receive a full co-branded Ligier and Sabelt suit kit which will include a custom-fit suit, shoes, gloves and Nomex with a carrying bag.
“We are very happy to be a part of the F4 U.S. and F3 Americas family,” said Carello Group – Sabelt America Co-founder Erik Krammer. “We feel this is a perfect fit for Sabelt and the drivers. We support seven of the 10 Formula 1 teams this season. These young drivers idolize F1 and now they will be using Sabelt in their own cars. The passion and excitement in these young drivers are what we love most about this partnership.”
The Sabelt Hard Charger Award was designed to award the competitor who demonstrated the best drive of the weekend and to highlight those drivers who may have had difficulty in qualifying, but still demonstrated his or her race craft skills by advancing positions throughout the course of the race.
