Car racing glove manufacturers are worried about the effect of the global recession on the sport and are working to protect their markets by introducing cheaper production.
But they are concerned that while the sport is attracting a new generation of fans, some people are getting used to the same gear as before.
So they are making changes to protect fans from the new wear and tear.
They have put together a range of gloves designed to prevent the risk of the same problem seen in previous seasons.
In a statement to The Telegraph, the manufacturers said: “The industry needs to do more to ensure that all racers have the same gloves as before and the same performance.
This is the challenge facing the industry as a whole.”
It said the gloves would be produced in countries where production is still being regulated, but that the gloves will be manufactured in the US and China, the two largest markets.
The companies say the gloves are designed to protect the hands from the “pulsing action” of the race car and also from the effects of sweat and oils, which can wear down the skin and cause a burn.
They also include a new layer of protection for the hands that are made of a protective fabric that has been tested by racing officials to keep the fingers safe.
The gloves were unveiled last week as part of a programme by the manufacturers and the manufacturers’ chief executive, Michael Atherton, who is from Manchester.
Mr Atherson said: I think it’s important that our fans know that if you want to compete in the World Series of Car Racing you have to wear these gloves.
“It’s like playing in a sport you’ve never played before.”
In the United States, the gloves were introduced in March as part a safety program.
They are also being used in Britain, with the UK Series of Motor Racing, the UK Formula 1 championship and the FIA Formula E championship also using them.
Atherton said: The gloves are a great tool, but they also have to have the performance.
The gloves can be worn on the track or when you are racing, or on the racetrack or on a race track.
“There’s no doubt that the safety aspect is a huge issue.
It’s a very important part of this sport.”
But at the same time we also have the challenge of trying to ensure as many people as possible have the gloves.
“The gloves are made in England, but the gloves could be used in the United Kingdom, China and Germany as well.
