Check these 2 websites out. I've dealt with both companies, and they're good guys.

Speedware Motorsports
OG Racing

Seats are a lot like helmets - you need to buy what fits, depending on your body style. Dale rented his car to a guy who had to bring his own seat! Anyway, Bill bought Sparco Pro 2000's. It's proved to be a killer seat. Comfortable, but I'm locked into the car with lots of support in the corners. They're nice and light, and not horribly expensive.

The important bit is to try out a bunch and find something that suits your needs.
I tried out a Momo seat from Armadillo Racing that fit me like a glove.
Made a big difference in my racing as I didn't have to use my left foot to keep me planted in my too-large seat that came with my car.

If it's a dual-purpose car, I'd go with a looser fit, but my snug seat is perfect for my dedicated racer.
