Amber Composites has been chosen as the prepreg provider for The Honda Yuasa Racing Team British Touring Cars.
Amber explain that earlier this week, Honda and Team Dynamics Motorsport, who manage Honda Racing, unveiled the car for this year’s British Touring Car Championships (BTCC). They say the race car uses their prepreg for a wide variety of structural and body parts, including the front crash structure, side impact panels, door panels, under body floor and more.
“Continuing the technical collaboration, started in 2011, with Amber Composites is of great benefit to the Honda Racing BTCC team. It allows us to continue to use their wide range of high-quality composite materials throughout the production of our car and associated parts, and lets us call upon Amber’s experience for advice on product usage in patterns, tooling, and the production of parts themselves,” said Peter Crolla, Team Manager, Team Dynamics Motorsport Ltd.
“We’re very pleased to continue our partnership with the Honda Yuasa BTCC team”, said Adrian Hughes, Market Sector Manager Motorsport and Automotive at Amber Composites. “Their quality and professionalism is evident both on the track and behind the scenes, and we’re proud to be working with them.”
