All about Retro Racegear.

Retro Racegear began with a passion for motorsports. We love racing, so we found a niche to fill in the business of it.

We are a family company, and we are dedicated to serving our customers. We want you to know that when you buy Retro Raceegear merchandise, you are buying high value, high quality items that are as close to perfect as we can muster. If you don't agree, bring it back! Our
return policy shows that we stand behind our products.

Retro Racegear began because we saw a need: modern racing doesn't have the same feel as days gone by. Many fans don't want to tout modern drivers and teams because they can't relate to the business attitudes surrounding motorsport. They prefer to harken back to the days when they watched Nuvolari, or Fangio, or Moss, or Clark, or Stewart-- the days when the difference between a quick lap and death was almost indistinguishable, the days of cameraderie amongst drivers, the days when motorsport was about the joy of winning.

We can relate to that. That's why we bring you quality merchandise representing those good days. Motorsport will always be fantastic, fast, and fun. It will never be what it was again, but we can share and promote the history.

The quality of our product.

This isn't the cheap stuff. These are high quality, trusted products, designed to last longer than a weekend's worth of wear.

We want you to like our merchandise so much that you buy more, and tell your friends about it. We want you to know that if you buy a gift for a friend (a thank you for the help with that gear change, or just a birthday present for someone who's tough to buy for, but you know would appreciate your thoughtfulness), your friend will be ecstatic with their new gift. And we want you to know that you'll see that gift recipient with your gift over and over and over.

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase (or they are not happy with their gift) send it back for a complete refund. Have a look at our
return policy in more detail.

Returns and exchanges (just in case).

You will be 100% satisfied with everything you ever purchase from Retro Racegear, or you will not pay for it. Send back the merchandise to the address on your receipt or the return address of the box it came in. You will be refunded for everything (less shipping), and you will never have to deal with us again. If you simply got the wrong size (or your gift was the wrong size), send it back. If you have to open the package to know if it's not right, go ahead and open it (although if you know it won't fit, we'd prefer you didn't.) Drop us a line explaining and we'll send you a new one.

Or, bring your item and receipt to the track! If you are coming to one of the races we'll be at, you can return it to us there!

We appreciate your business! We like our quality customers, that's why we give them quality products!
