The cheapest fire retardant suits can be bought from Tara Lohia in Kolkata. These are MAI approved for Rallying and racing in India. You can get the address on http://www.racesuit.in

Ofcourse, if you want the good stuff, you can get Sparco's from 4-seasons, but be ready to shell out Rs.12K and above.

Their website is still under construction. I am assuming these are the Nomex type....correct?

What is their pricing ???

No. These are not nomex, however meet the same standards for fire resistance of single layer FIA suits. Nomex is a brand, and as soon as you add nomex to anything, the price shoots up. Also, you probably won't win any style contests with these suits, but they get the job done. Every INRC rally driver wore these last year, so if you get a hold of any pics, you will see how the suit looks.

Suits are Rs.5,300 + taxes + shipping.
