About Us

Now into their 30th year of operation and 20th under current MD and former NZ Motor Racing Champion Shane Drake, Chicane Racewear is a well-established supplier of New Zealand-made Chicane and Flamecrusher race suits worn by many well-known Kiwi competitors such as 2011 FIA Production World Rally Champion Hayden Paddon, GP3 Champion Mitch Evans, V8 Supercar star Shane Van Gisbergen, Fabian Coulthard, Scott McLaughlin and speedway hero Michael Pickens and Brad Mosen. Having purchased the manufacturing rights and intellectual property of the Flamecrusher brand early in 2012, Chicane exports its New Zealand-made suits to Australia, around the Asia Pacific region, the US and the UK. The company also stocks a range of the highly-regarded Italian-made Alpinestars race suits and protective race gear to complement the locally-manufactured garments.


“Chicane Racewear is the only New Zealand manufacturer of FIA-approved race suits and competitors can be assured of our ongoing dedication to source new technology fabrics to be utilised in suits which suit their specific racing conditions, be it club sport or professional level racing on circuits, drag strips, speedway, powerboats, jet sprints or rallies.


The experienced personnel at the company’s upmarket showroom and manufacturing facility in Penrose, Auckland, help competitors with a complete suit design service and also offer a personalized on-site embroidery service for suits and team clothing, as well as repairs and alterations.


Chicane has dealers throughout New Zealand and Australia.

Our Guarantee
Chicane garments are made to a very high standard. We are proud of them. If any garment does not meet your expectations for any reason, please advise us and we will either replace or repair it. As we take pride in our quality, any unlikely defect in manufacture will be rectified at the manufacturer's expense.
