Baja Bros.™ introduces the first fire-resistant
T-shirt created just for desert racers.

Today’s desert race vehicles are going faster than ever. Little wonder nearly every race suit manufacturer urges you to wear fire resistant underwear under your suit. But does anyone you know wear it? Do you?

Now there’s a fire-resistant T-shirt made specifically to meet the needs of desert racers. It’s the Flame Lab™ T-shirt exclusively from Baja Bros. (www.bajabros.com).

Unlike most fire-resistant garments, a Flame Lab T-shirt never feels hot, itchy or clammy. Why? Unlike so many others, it’s not a 100% synthetic fabric. Instead, it’s made with a fire-resistant cotton blend called Valzon®. So it feels remarkably soft and comfortable. And with 40% combed cotton, it wicks away perspiration to help you feel a little cooler during hot races.

Valzon is inherently fire-resistant. Which means the fire-resistant quality isn’t applied or sprayed on. It’s part of the fabric itself, so it won't wash out or wear off making Flame Lab shirts a long-lasting value.

Flame Lab T-shirts are approved for racing by the SFI Foundation, the organization established to issue standards for specialty/performance automotive and racing equipment, including your race suit. There’s an SFI patch sewn on the back of each Flame Lab shirt.

According to the SFI Foundation, the majority of racer burns come from heat transfer, not direct flames. Air gaps, like those you get between your drivers suit and a fire resistant T-shirt, such as a Flame Lab shirt, are a recommended way to insulate your upper body from this kind of burn.

Flame Lab T-shirts are currently available at only two locations. At the Baja Bros. web site, www.bajabros.com And at the Baja Bros. contingency trailer at selected races. You have a choice of any color you like, as long as it’s navy blue.

i believe most are required to be so by law in the UK but i could be wrong. however if fire resistance is an issue it maybe better seeing if a different type of floor covering would be better
