Back in the days, wooden steering wheels weren’t always giving the tight grip we need to steer fast and precize. Driving or racing gloves were used to make it work. Nowadays, while driving a daily driver, not much people wear gloves anymore. Race car drivers on the other hand use them always, no matter how advanced the material of the steering wheel is.
During a road trip in a sportscar, the roads are more challenging, cornering might be on higher speeds. Then driving gloves should be used. We think.
Bends and Curves will take the Fort Belvedere driving gloves to the test. Why these gloves? Because we like style. For men and women. Without a doubt, style for men can be found at Gentlemans Gazette. But are their Fort Belvedere driving gloves any good, besides looking good? In a few weeks time we will review them during a short Lotus Club Holland Vineyard Tour (still open for entries!). After that a serious test will take place during Stelvio.20.Years. So keep on the lookout for these posts!
