It wouldn’t be a NASA Super Touring grid without Corvettes, right? Those who have added a proper racing seat to their Corvette often say it’s the most important mod they’ve made to increase their track-day enjoyment and safety. However, a proper racing seat should be mounted from the side on fixed mounts, not using the OEM seat hardware. As a result, headroom becomes a concern with any racing seat in a Corvette, but AMT Motorsport has effectively eliminated that concern with the Ultra-Low Seat Mount.

By machining a perfect hex in the mounts to accept the mounting bolts for the side brackets, AMT maximizes seat clearance. This machined hex also removes an extra wrench from the installation process.

These seat mounts are machined from 6061-T6 extruded aluminum. Rather than allow the side brackets to only sit on bolts, AMT machines the brackets, so there’s a perfect mechanical interface with the bottom and side of each floor mount, increasing stiffness and strength. Included with every mount are studs and hardware to allow the mount to be bolted using the factory Corvette seat studs.

There is also an optional integral, movable cross bar to accept five- and six-point sub straps. This sub-strap bar is bolted to the floor mounts with flat head screws, and there are two more holes in the cross bar in case your sanctioning body requires you to bolt the bar through the floor. Two eye-bolts are included with the cross bar.

As with everything AMT makes, these mounts and sub-strap bars are proudly 100 percent made in the USA. If any part of the mount fails for any reason, AMT Motorsport will replace the offending part free of charge. $405.
