Default Seat Dimension Help needed

I prepping to get back on the track in the spring and need some help on seats.

Every time I've dealt with this seat subject, I have been stymied by the lack of dimensional data WRT the width you need between side mounts.

For example, I have a Sparco EVO 2 (sometimes called Evo L) in my car now. The subject width is about 19". If I want to swap to a new seat, it seems impossible to find which seat are what width at those 2/side mounting bolts.

If you have a side mount seat, I'd be helpful if you could post its width.

I use recaro and they seem to always have dimension data. For example:

That's helpful although that 406 mm would make for skinny-ass seats in all cases.
