The CEC Showroom hosts the Recaro LA Auto Show Party

When we pulled up outside of CEC’s showroom in LA, we knew the evening was bound to be interesting when parked on the curb was a Mercedes SLR and an SLS behind it. The occasion? Recaro’s LA Auto Show party for the new Recaro Pro Racer Ultima 1.0.

As explained to us by Recaro, the seat revolutionizes safety.

“In 1996, the “Pro Racer” was the world’s first racing shell with side head protectors, which revolutionised safety in motor sport.. In the year 2002, Recaro racing seats were adapted in such a way as to allow the full use, with complete functionality, of the HANS (Head and Neck Support System) system, which provides additional protection for the neck vertebrae in the event of a crash. In 2010 Recaro presents the new racing seat Recaro Pro Racer Ultima. This seat offers the perfect solution to ambitious drivers, in compliance with the new FIA standard 8862-2009 (Advanced Racing Seat). Seats according the new FIA standard are compulsory in the WRC.”

CEC played host to the party which was attended by not only major names in the industry, but familiar faces such as Formula D drivers, and perhaps a Top Gear host. Throughout the showroom were several exotics to showcase Recaro’s latest offerings.

StanceWorks was invited to capture the life of the party, and as always, to shake a few hands throughout the evening to continue building relationships that allow us to do what we love. As equally impressive as the fleet Recaro had brought in was the CEC facility itself. With Claus’s 458 parked in the dead-center of the commotion, it made a great piece to conversate around.

As with all industry parties, it’s exciting to see what is in the pipeline for the major names we’ve grown up admiring. It’s a thrilling opportunity to be a part of the inner workings of the industry. As for what’s next, you’ll just have to wait and see.
