Question Can I use moto gloves for auto racing?

I'm planning on going to AutoX this spring/summer and I would like know if anyone here has ever used moto gloves instead of other type of gloves. My hand slips sometimes and I'd prefer not to let that happen. I've searched everywhere but no result

Gloves I consider buying:

Platinum Steel Faith Glove

Your hands slip while driving regularly? Or you're just worried about your hands slipping? My hands get pretty sweaty on a hot summer day, but I've never found it to be an issue. Don't forget, your windows will have to be open which does a good job of drying them.

Not sure I would spend $30 on gloves that I may not need (ignore me if you have ride a motorcycle already). When karting, I'll sometimes use mechanics gloves since they're cheap and I have them already. As long as the gloves don't restrict movement, I think it should be fine.

They don't slip that often, but mostly the faster I shift the higher chance. I just prefer a guaranteed grip, and no I don't ride motorcycles. I'm just a big fan of fox...

I get wicked blisters - and even though I've learned not to death grip the steering wheel I now wear my fingerless bicycle gloves. (Helps with the Civic Si's Staff of Ra on sunny summer days too.)

One event the FTOD went to a guy wearing batting gloves. (Correlation does not imply causation.)

I would like to update this thread with some results. I went ahead and purchased these same day I created this topic. I have been driving with these for couple of weeks and I'm quite impressed. The 2 silicone fingers are sticky enough to turn the wheel with minimum pressure and are also perfect for shifting because they contact the leather part of the shifter. All the holes in these gloves provide good ventilation and eliminate sweaty hands

The stickiest gloves I've ever used were Hatch shooting gloves, they actually leave some sticky behind on the gun/steering wheel after I use them. I guess the only thing stickier are those gloves football receivers used to wear, but I think they banned them.

You can get the Hatch gloves in regular of fingerless. Hatch makes a lot of gloves, be sure to get the "shooting" type.
