Lewis Plato – Walero Ambassador

“Preparation is key on a race weekend, and without hesitation, my range of Walero fireproofs are part of my routine. They are the first thing I pack into my race kit. They always feel great and are genuinely the most comfortable item I have. That enables me to just focus on all the other areas of my weekend. “
