Tillett B6 Carbon GRP seat, a narrow seat suited to many kit car and track day cars. It's driving angle is based on the popular Caterham R500 seat, but it has some important differences. The headrest has been moved back to prevent the driver's head from being pushed forward when using a crash helmet and the shoulder belt holes have been designed to allow the use of a HANS/FHR device.
The side slots have been enlarged to accomodate wider lap belts and the composite shell is designed so that the outer edge can either removed for narrow 40cm or 43cm tubs if required. To give that extra bit of comfort, versions of the B6 seats are available with Dinamica covered, soft padded suede panels and the B6 is also available in an all GRP composite with a plain black gel coat.
The mounting points for the B6 are under the seat so that the TR1 Tillett Adjustment Runners can be bolted directly to the underside (must be spaced 1cm for handle clearance). Mounting of the seat is also possible straight to the floorpan and Nylon spacers can be supplied to tip the seat to different angles.
