I am trying to find a racing jumpsuit for an upcoming shoot, but all I have found so far are really cheap ($30-$80) outfits that look really cheap and fullfledged racing suits that cost about $1,000. Does anyone know where I can find something in between those two?

Thanks for any assistance.

There are all manner of 'driving suits'....some very thin and minimally protective, others are very bulky. I don't know what you are looking for in your shoot, but you live in the heart of racing country. There are hundreds of people in your area who are on race teams...and they will almost ALL have suits...they may vary in appearance based on the individuals job on the team and the type of racing. You might want to go directly to a team and see about borrowing one...or maybe to individual members. One note here: Things are different today than when I was a clown in the 'Racing Circus'. There MAY be issues with product identification on the suits. Make sure you check into this before you spend a bunch of time shooting only to find out that some sponsor or other won't let you use the images. (Photoshop could be your best friend here).

The bottom line is you probably don't want to actually purchase a 'proper' suit. As you have discovered, they can be pretty expensive. If, on the other hand, you see some ongoing need for a prop like that, you can probably find the cheaper 'off the rack' versions locally....the 'real' ones are usually made to order.

One more tip here....you might want to approach the smaller teams or even the sportsman (amateur) type teams...it may be easier to get your foot in the door.

Good luck

You may also be able to rent one from prop houses that supply the movie industry. They have more stuff than you can imagine, and would probably be able to offer you more than one racing suit. Check the film/production listings with a google search and make a few phone calls. Renting would be cheaper then purchasing one if you want an authentic suit.
