Where to buy WHITE proban overalls

Can anyone point me in the direction of a UK stockist that sells white or light grey coloured proban overalls?

I can only find red, black, orange etc. and need a light, one coloured suit.

What do you guys wear for Goodwood?

Presumably this would be easier to achieve on a US website?

Thanks

Piglet, for the Goodwood Revival meeting those of us who need to wear white are provided with them.

For the Goodwood Reival and FOS the white probans carry labels from AWS who presumably are the manufacturer.Worth a call to check.

I have used AWS for supplying my white overalls for Le Mans & Daytona for the past 2 years. Give them a call.

Most safetywear shops have white heavy cotton overalls, so it depends if you really want Proban or not (obviously depending on what duty you are intending to do) - I do prefer to wear a white set for the 24hrs / darkness hours races

I work at Goodwood and can tell you our whites come from AWS exactly the same as the normal orange.
They even give us two piece ones now!!

The ACO have issued this:-

For the next test day and the “24 Hours” week, the wearing of overalls will be COMPULSORY in the pit lane (plus the accreditive bib which gives access to this area)
The overalls must meet the following criteria:
- Each person accredited for the pit lane must procure this garment which will not be supplied by the ACO.
- These overalls must offer a real degree of protection: anything from a minimum of 100% cotton (flame-proof) to a greater degree of protection against fire (Norm N°8856 2000).
- This garment, plain and light coloured (white, beige, light grey), must not bear any publicity, logos, brand-names, etc.

Most suppliers are happy to make them as special order, I'll call round today when I have a few minutes....

I'm sorry but if an organiser dictates what you can/cannot have on your overalls and what colour they should be, then that organiser should damn well provide them! [small rant now over]

Last year at the Festival they were emblazoned with adverts so even those that had their own white ones had to change.

However I too have thought of getting my own white ones as the ones I had to wear were huge.

He's Media Mark - they're even more expendable than Marshals - as media if you are lucky enough that the ACO let you play in their pitlane you smile nicely and do as they ask!
