By the way Tom... is it possible to get a CS seat covered in the oem Bamboo Beige leather?
Yes, Recaro offers the S08 program (at additional cost) in which you can provide leather for them to cover. There is an approval process required.

Not competitively, this will depend on the rules set by that specific track/organization. Most Recaro fixed-back shells are FIA Cert.

Fixed back shells are best suited for track use. The Sporster CS seats are the same as the BMW performance seats (sans airbags), and better suited for everyday driving.
