F.A.S.T. Cooling is the Choice of Top Teams in NASCAR, Formula One & Others
Southlake, TX (December 15, 2020) – Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) today announced that F.A.S.T. (Fresh Air Systems Technologies) Cooling had joined its expanding family of partners as “The Official Cool Suit” of SVRA. Professionals and amateurs from across the spectrum of racing disciplines choose F.A.S.T. for their cooling requirements.
“Many of our racers are very familiar with F.A.S.T. Cooling products,” said SVRA CEO Tony Parella. “This announcement reflects SVRA’s full endorsement of all F.A.S.T. Cooling products because they take care of our racers.”
Baja driver Chris Raffo founded the company in 1982 to produce filtered air helmets, and this created essential and strategic relationships in the community of safety equipment manufacturers. F.A.S.T. has been providing cooling solutions since 1992. F.A.S.T. was the first company to come out with cool-filtered air by adding a cooler with a heat extrusion packed full of ice to drop the air temperature going to helmets. F.A.S.T. offers blowers, filters, and cooling for the full range of racing applications. The applications include drag racing, off-road trucks, stock cars, sports cars, formula racers, go-karts, Legends, monster trucks, drag boats, powerboats, and others.
“The entire F.A.S.T. family is truly excited to partner with SVRA and be a part of the wide variety of racers you find at SpeedTour weekends,” said Jill Swanson, F.A.S.T. CEO. “Over the years, we have had the privilege of working with the finest race teams in the world. We have cooled drivers, crew members, and team owners. We have extended beyond the racing community to deliver cooling solutions for HVAC plants, foundry workers, athletes, MS patients, surgeons, and children who cannot sweat.”
The F.A.S.T. product line includes cool suit shirts, the F.A.S.T. cool suit system, and F.A.S.T. air systems. Cool pack systems bring cold, filtered air into helmets and shirts. Through a partnership with RINI Technologies, F.A.S.T broke new ground with the Auto Personal Cooling Solution. This product incorporates RINI-patented miniature refrigeration technology to continuously chill a flow of water to the cooling shirt.
F.A.S.T. joins other top-brand companies on the growing list of SVRA partners. Among them are Jaguar, Land Rover, NetJets, Sunoco, Avis, Mazda Motorsports, Big Machine Vodka, TireRack.com, RACELOGIC, Cook Wealth Management, Hawk Performance, and Marathon Coach. SVRA’s nationwide platform is at the heart of the organization’s growth strategy. Agreements with powerful brands combine with the significant participation of legendary professional drivers and the paddock’s high net worth demographic for more partnership attraction. This strategy provides three pillars for business expansion. Company officials report consistent annual triple-digit growth since 2012.
