A good friend of mine is acting as business advisor to the founder and former owner of a well-known racing shoe company. I'm told I'm not supposed to name them publicly due to ongoing legal issues. I'll just say that I wear this company's products, as do several other SDR autocrossers. SCCA has marketed them, as did C2.

This guy is looking to start up a new racing shoe and apparel company. He's got designs drawn up for a new line of racing shoes even better than the ones we're familiar with, based on feedback from numerous real racers. He's looking for some seed money to do an initial production run and get the new company off the ground.

If you have any interest in helping a proven racing gear innovator get this new venture up and running, contact me privately, and I'll put you in touch.
