Gulf Racing is pleased to announce a new partnership with Walero for the 2016 season. Working together to provide the WEC race team, drivers and pit-crew, with the ultimate solution for personal trackside performance and comfort. Walero brings the most technologically advanced range of competition base layers. The FIA 8856-200 and SFI 3.3 approved garments are fireproof and regulate the body's temperature in either hot or cold climates, ensuring that the wearer stays comfortable and protected.

Matt Beers, Gulf Racing Team Manager, said: ‘Stepping up from ELMS to the WEC we looked at all of the factors that affect personal performance, the equipment the team use needs to be the best in the business for us to achieve our goal – to be World Champions. The Walero system ticks all our boxes for a fireproof base layer, comfort, performance, quality; it was the perfect choice for both the drivers and pit crew.'

Fiona James, Walero Founder commented: " We are delighted to be partnering Gulf Racing in the WEC. We are very proud of our product; its unique properties are perfect for endurance racing where every second counts. Our garments and the technology behind them were developed for NASA astronauts to stabilise their body temperature. This means that not only is heat stress reduced but also dehydration, both combining to improve performance & safety. We have worked hard to develop the product and this year our focus is to raise our brand awareness. Gulf Racing have high ambitions, and this makes them the ideal partner to demonstrate our belief in the product and the importance of being comfortable despite the conditions."
