How to Order Speed Silks
Then you’ll tell us about your design so Darby Racing Technology can begin making a full-colour, front-and-back design proof.
If you already have an existing silks pattern, it helps to provide us with photos along with a written description so we know exactly what you need. Perhaps you have a winner’s circle photo on know where we can find one online. It also helps if you can take photos of your existing silks and e-mail or text the pictures to us.
If you’re building new silks from scratch, creating a design proof can take longer, but it’s one of the most fun and rewarding parts of the process. You’ll work with DLT’s graphic designer to determine what colours and markings you’d like on your silks. DRT can create a simple, traditional set of silks or something completely off the wall, click on our Flickr button at the top and the footer of the pages and take a look at the Images to see what DRT are capable of. Remember that some racing jurisdictions have strict regulations for silks designs; likewise, you’ll need to follow specific rules if you want to register your silks with the Colours Registrar in your state or country. DRT can ensure you’re colours are rules-compliant if necessary.
DRT don’t charge any design or setup fees, so there’s no need to wait. We can get to work helping you design your next work of art today!
Once you have officially approved of the design proof, DRT can get to work building your technical pattern, which is what the dyer and seamstress use to create your actual Speed Silks. That’s about a four-week process from the day you approve the proof to the day we ship your finished Speed Silks to you. Sometimes we do it a little faster, and sometimes (though rarely) it takes a bit longer. Our off-site dyer does work for DRT on a contract basis, and as we never know how much work he already has in front of him when we send him an order, we don’t know how long it will take him to dye our Aero Dimplex fabric. Aero Dimplex is a high-tech, fussy fabric to work with, and it requires some very special processes to dye and assemble into a garment. It takes a bit longer to manufacture Speed Silks than old-fashioned silks, but we think you’ll find it’s worth the wait. Just call +61 2 9613 3265 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process.

DRT will manufacture your Speed Silks with the same markings and colours on the final design proof approved by the customer, regardless of local regulations.
