Player’s Forsythe racing suit worn by Canadian driver Patrick Carpentier. The suit was race-used during the 2001 CART IndyCar Series season.

The white torso has dark blue chevron bands on the back and front that are edged with yellow braid. Player’s Tobacco lettering is prominently displayed on the suit chest, arms and neck. On the back is the Player’s ‘Navy Cut’ Sailor branding logo embroidered to the suit. Carpentier’s name and national flag are on the waist belt and his race #32 is on the left leg.
