Got a driving suit

I'm in Ireland right now for the weekend visiting my family. My brother who did a bit of rally racing over here had a spare OMP 3 layer nomex suit. It's certified FIA 1986 which seems old but from the tests I've been looking at on the net looks very close to the current SFI and FIA 2000 regs.

In any case, it's free and better than a pair of jeans and a cotton long sleeved sweat shirt. Tried it on today and it fits just fine.

Here's a 2000 report showing SFI 3.2A, FIA 1986 and FIA 2000 comparisons.
