Wash and Care

Below you can find some useful advice on how wash and care for your racewear.

In general these tips can be applied to all racewear, in any case refer to the instructions supplied with the garment or to the internal label. Follow these steps to ensure your racewear stays clean, fresh, and ready for your next race. 

Washing Instructions:

  1. Check Label and Instructions: always follow the specific care instructions provided with the garment, material are not always the same and instructions may vary from model.
  2. Pre-Treat Stains: if your racewear has stains, pre-treat them with a gentle stain remover or detergent before washing. We recommend using our detergents “OMP MOTORSPORT CARE powered by MAFRA”.
  3. Turn Inside Out (exclusive for suits): before washing, turn your suit inside out. This helps protect the outer fabric and preserves any printed or embroidered designs.
  4. Use Mild Detergent: choose a gentle detergent that is suitable for delicate fabrics. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals.
  5. Hand Wash or Delicate Cycle: ideally, hand wash your racewear in cool water. If using a machine, select a delicate cycle with cold water to prevent damage (30° cycle wash is recommended).
  6. Avoid Fabric Softeners (exclusive for suits): fabric softeners can leave residues that may affect the shine and quality of prints and embroidery. Avoid fabric softeners if possible.
  7. Rinse Thoroughly: after washing, rinse your racewear thoroughly to remove all detergent residue.

Drying Instructions:

  1. Air Dry: lay your suit flat to air dry. Avoid hanging it on a clothesline, as this can stretch out the fabric. Avoid direct exposure to the sun so as not to fade or ruin the embroidery or prints.
  2. Keep Away from Direct Heat (exclusive for suits): do not use a dryer, iron, or any direct heat source to dry your suit. High heat can damage the fabric and fire-retardant properties.

Additional Tips: 

– Store Properly: when not in use, store your racewear in a cool, dry place away from humidity and direct sunlight. We recommend using the bags provided. 

– Inspect Regularly: check your racewear for any signs of wear, tear, or loose seams. The use of damaged clothing increases the risk of injury in the event of an accident. Always use items that are intact and in good condition. Verify integrity before each use. Any repairs to the garments must be authorized by Racing Force in writing, and must absolutely be carried out by expert personnel and with the same materials of which the garment is made, including the stitching thread. 

– Follow Racing Association Rules: be sure to comply with any specific racing association rules regarding race suit care and maintenance. By following these washing and care instructions, you can extend the life of your racewear and ensure it remains in top condition for maximum safety and performance on the track.
