Wecome to Lightning Race Gear Established Dec 2011.

Lightning Race Gear is our own brand of Karting and Race gear. We have had this manufactured on our behalf by a number of leading race gear manufactures.

My background is from speedway, my father raced stockcar out of Wanganui for 20 years, when i was growing up and I raced a couple of years.  Our Son has races Go karts through from Cadet class and now to seniors, speedway, RX7 pro 7 and formula first.  This background has helped us select products that are well suited to these sports.

Karting. We carry a large range of karting Apparel. CIK certified suits. We carry a couple of styles in stock in all sizes and can also custom design to order.

Speedway. We have both SFI and FAI approved gear

Other Motor Racing : We also supply a cheaper non certified Nomex range of gear for those that dont want the added expense of this certification.

We have a number of agents throughout the country that stock our gear..... contact us for details

We specialise in small junior sizing.


We have kept our range small and simple which allows us to carry a larger numbers of each item in stock.  We try to carry all items in stock, not manufacture to order. This allows us to ship same day and provide a top quality products at a affordable price.

Our aim is help promote the sport of karting and motorsport via sponsorship and helping keep costs down.
