Topic: Any Chicago area businesses that have equipment in stock?

New team in the process of building a car.....complete rookies.  I'd like to actually sit in the seat and try on the helmet vs. buying online.  Same with suit, gloves, shoes.

Any good suggestions for shops that have inventory?

Thanks!

Take a drive up to Pegasus in New Berlin, just outside of Milwaukee, they will have seats to sit in and safety gear to try on. Well worth the trip.

Pegasusautoracing.com     I think, otherwise just google it

Northstar Motorsports is in Barrington.
Where in the Chicago area are you? There are several teams that could answer questions or help you out.

I bought my seat at Northstar Motorsports, they were helpful and patient with us.  I've also driven up to Pegasus and they have always be nice a helpful too.  Pegasus is larger and tends to have more stuff in stock.

IF you want to drive up to Rockton, IL (About 15 miles north of Rockford, IL.) these guys carry everything they sell in stock.

Thanks all for the suggestions!  Very helpful.

Most of the team is in the city.  The car will spend most of it's time in the North burbs.

Check out Touge Factory in Chicago.

They generally have a ton of seats and helmets.  I have bought many products from them and they are excellent to work with.  Highly recommended.

My helmet (HJC) is from there and i have also bought Race Tech seats from them.
