Our Heritage

Racing Spirit is the brainchild of OMP Racing, a company that has been racing around the world at every level for 44 straight years.  The Racing Spirit has been part of the Percivale family since 1973 when, in a small town near Genoa, Italy, Roberto, Claudio and Piergiorgio began to manufacture roll cages and racing accessories for their own racecars in order to gain a competitive edge over fellow competitors. OMP flourished under Percivale ownership up to 2008 when the company sold to the Delprato family who turned the company to be the market leader and Industry innovator. OMP Racing is now the world’s best manufacturer of racing safety equipment and karting accessories with a catalog of over 3,000 different items. Operating from a technologically advanced 80,000-sqft facility in Italy, OMP products are renowned for its quality, the meticulous attention to details that is constantly challenged by setting higher standards. During its 44 years of existence OMP had the honor to collaborate with superstar Michael Schumacher & Ayrton Senna, and with equally important drivers such as Mario Andretti, Mika Hakkinen, Damon Hill, Nigel Mansell, Gerard Berger, Keke Rosberg, Jeff Gordon, Marco Andretti, Will Power and Ryan Hunter-Reay to name a few. OMP still collaborates with famous manufactures including: Ferrari, Maserati, Jaguar, Porsche and teams of the caliber of Mercedes F1, McLaren, Sauber, Penske Racing, Andretti Autosport and many more. OMP America, the Company US subsidiary, is a long-cherished wish of the company in order to provide real-time accessibility and support in the U.S.A.  Thanks OMP for the opportunity, we will bring what we learned the past four decades into the way of life that our line represents… embrace with us the Racing Spirit!
