Default Seating Position Set Up

Looking for help setting up my driving position.

Seats will be mounted on a kit similar to the below:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal...-/362179907501

With Kirkey Lightweight seats.

Any advice, dimensions, literature and the like to assist would be great. Don't want to have cut and weld in steel to have a pineapple position!

Cheers,

Ben

For track use I like to sit as low as possible and close to the steering wheel/pedals
Arms/legs bent and pretty raked seat back for more power to the steering wheel. I have a sparco circuit seat that has a pretty high thigh “pillow” to support the legs. But that’s just me, everyone is different. Try to centralize the seat in the mountings, then you can do trackside tweaking easier back/fourth/tilt

Goodspeed
