Schroth Competition Racing Harnesses. Carl Friedrich Schroth (1909-1997) was a keen sporting motorcyclist and engineer from his youth onwards. Upon marrying a skilled tailor, the Schroths began making and selling motorcycle clothing. However, in the mid-1950s the passenger car began its triumphant progress through Germany, thereby squeezing the motorcycle out. The Schroths feverishly sought new products to sell. Simultaniously, Schroth revisited his motorsport hobby only now it was cars. While racing, he encountered a problem: it annoyed him that his co-driver could not read maps and navigate properly because he was constantly being flung to and fro in his seat. “He needs securing!”, Schroth decided. From roller blind parts and coat buckles he “tailored” a seat belt for his co-pilot. He had developed the first German belt, a shoulder belt. Passenger safety in road vehicles and other means of transport has remained Schroth’s central concern for almost 60 years. Schroth belts have come a long way in those years. Many technological advances have been made making them a market leader and today about 20,000 Schroth shoulder belts are still made and sold all over the world.
Simpson has been manufacturing racing harnesses for over 60 years. Since the sale of harness set #1, over 100,000 auto racing harnesses have been sold.

Rewind to 1963 to the first Japanese Grand Prix. Horsepower and Aero (primitive by today's standards) were the main priorities. Safety was not. Approximately 50% of the racecars in this era had a seat belt and race safety was not a top priority. Street vehicles were rarely equipped with seat belts either. The change has not begun yet.
One year later in 1964, Takata changed racing forever.Takata developed Japan's first full-harness seat belt installed in a Subaru 360 to compete the next year in the second Japanese Grand Prix.
In 1996, Takata developed the Multi Point Buckle (MPB), a full harness designed for the DOME CO., LTD., F1 racing car made exclusively of parts produced in Japan. This harness was designed not only to ensure the driver’s safety, but also to aid driver comfort and help minimize fatigue. The MPH (Multi Point Harness) was adopted for use by FIA and Super GT, Indycar/CART, Formula Nippon, and Formula 3 formula racing cars in the following years. The combination of safety and winning edge technology has won acclaim from motor sports drivers worldwide.
In 2005, Takata started supplying its MPB-020 harness, which incorporated the latest advances in technology, for use in F1 races, the pinnacle of motor sports. The following year, Takata introduced the MPH-range of full harnesses. These sophisticated harness systems were made possible by incorporating state-of-the-art technologies gained from F1 racing in a product available to the public. Features include a small and light buckle and significantly better ease of operation and durability. Along with these improvements, the MPH retained the same positive attributes of its predecessor. Today a full line of high-quality street, drift and racing harnesses are available from Takata to protect you in nearly any form of motorsport activity.
Takata is dedicated to supplying motor sports fans in Japan and world-wide with even better products by using the extensive research and development know-how from our automotive OEM products and the valuable feedback of leading race car drivers to make more improvements.
