Racing Harness


Recommended Posts

I have an 05 Boxster S with Porsche sport seats and want to install a racing harness to keep me in the seat during autocrosses. I would rather not have to drill new holes in the body and the harness needs to fit a 6'4" 200 lb person. Is there a way to easily attach a harness so it could be removed during the week? Is there a particular brand or type that works well?

You should check the Brey-krause website.

You should also talk to other people at the AX.

They may want to sell their stuff and save you some pennys.

I suggest you get a rear sway bar for your next AX.

Not an expensive add and will make a big difference.

Thanks Paul. I will look at that site. I already have Tarett antisway bars (middle setting in front and full stiff in the rear) and camber plates up front (-2.2). I run A6 Hoosiers, but everything else is stock (with PASM). I do pretty well in Iowa and hope not to place last at SCCA Solo Nationals in my first try there. I could not find any 987 that did well at Nationals in any class. There is no chance in SS due to the GT3 being there. Because of the camber plates I am in B street prepared. I just want to stop being thrown around in the car; it hurts!

I can tell you what I did in my 986. I use 5-point harness from G-Force - G-Force is SFI rated but cheaper than the other alternatives.

I used Brey Krause (BK) hardware to mount the lap belt to the factory point in the chassis on the outside, and BK hardware on the tunnel side mount which in my case is the seat. Note I use Sparco racing shells, but the factory sport seats also a mount on the seat too.

I got the hardware on the seat belt side that has a latch to allow easy disconnect of the belt from the moutning point.

I THINK the BK hardware can be configured to allow the factory belt points to remain. I did not do it this way, but I am pretty sure, at least on the outside, the floor mount can still accommodate the factory belt.

You wouldn't use a 5-point system with your factory sport seats 'cause there is no way to pass it through the bottom of the seat.

I mounted my shoulder harness to the horizontal part of the roll hoop behind the seat - was a good height for me. But you being so tall, and having factory seats - you will have to experiement.

If all your are trying to do is be held in tighter, a 4-point with factory seats is OK - you might find a "tuner" rig that works good for you.

The sport seats are great with the bigger bolsters on the seat and back. You can do even better than that though, if you are willing to get a racing shell that wraps around you even more.
