We’re delighted to welcome one of the UK’s top motorsport and performance brands as multi-show sponsors of a series of Fast Car Entertainment events including; Japfest (www.japfest.co.uk), Japfest Rock (www.japfest2.co.uk), TRAX (www.traxshows.co.uk), Performance Vauxhall Show (www.performancevauxhallshow.co.uk) and Ford Fair (www.fordfair.co.uk).
Apex looks after five top automotive brands including K Sport, Hardrace and BC Racing, each of which is a firm catering for an element of performance tuning that’s ideally suited for the Fast Car Entertainment events portfolio.
Hardrace was founded in 1998 and specialises in designing, manufacturing and marketing reinforced chassis parts for race and road cars.
An enthusiasm for high speed and precise car control lead this Bradford-based firm to specialise in chassis development. A passion for innovation and an insistence on quality has meant that Hardrace provides the finest products using the latest materials and technology from performance bushings to anti-dust pillow ball suspension arms.
Professional drivers test all of new Hardrace products to their limits on circuits under extreme conditions. This usually ensures that the product is right first time, but Hardrace will also respond to feedback and make modifications until you’re 100 per cent satisfied.
So once you’ve got your chassis sorted and can corner faster, you’ll want to be able to stop better right? Well Apex Performance can sort you out here too, with its subsidiary company KSport.
KSport UK is the world’s largest KSport brake distributor and has been working hand in hand with the factory since the release of the very first prototypes. No other distributor has more experience of the KSport big brake kit range.
The KSport kits have proven themselves to be able to hold their own in comparisons to the biggest and most established brands on the market, not only in terms of outright performance but also in their incredible reliability and durability. The special twin piston seal design has been shown to be more than a match for the worst that a British winter can throw at them and they shrug off salt and dirt without problem. Sticking pistons and failed leaking seals just dont arise with these kits.
Coilovers from BR Racing are the pinnacle of adjustable performance for your ride. They’re designed to compete at the very highest levels and take the punishment of circuit and fast road abuse in their stride. The BR Series Street and circuit coilover offers height adjustability via a bottom mount (to maintain full damper travel) aluminium top plates, pillowball upper mounts and a dust boot to protect the damper seals.
The dampers themselves incorporate a large 46mm diameter piston, housed within a 53mm diameter damper body to ensure maximum oil capacity. Damping has been worked out so carefully that BC units are filled with a viscosity of oil that favourably alters the damping to take account of the oil heating up during hard use. The large capacity of the oil reservoir in BC dampers reduces temperature fade of the oil keeping damping performance at the highest possible level. BC’s damper units are also pressurised with nitrogen gas that reduces the aeration of the oil and improves damper consistency and damping quality.
In short, if you need a coilover to suit daily use, fast road or even circuit and competition use, then BC’s range is ideal. To find out more visit: www.bc-racing.co.uk
