HyTech Racing, a student racing car team that we sponsor, are making great progress with the production of their fifth platform HT05, the car they plan to race in 2021.
Once again Lane Motorsport will be at the PMW 2018 (stand number 6066) in Cologne where we will be showcasing our comprehensive portfolio of 8STA connectors and compatible accessories. Amongst the stock on show will be the tiny size 01 8STA series and modified connectors remodelled to suit our customer’s specific applications.
This season's first event at Donington was declared "a great success" by our sponsored rider, Sam Osborne. After an excellent early season practice and with some key modifications to his Suzuki, including the addition of suspension components by the leading Italian manufacturer Mupo, Sam was confident that he could compete on equal terms with the leading riders in the field at the season's opening race day.
Significant investment in our tooling and inventory levels will ensure that customers for Souriau’s 8STA High Density (HD) Series of circular connectors will soon not have to wait for prototypes and small quantities beyond a few days.
A truly international audience totalling more than 7,000 attended this year's Professional Motorsport World Expo in Cologne. PMW is strictly for motorsport industry professionals and is not open to the general public. It covers almost every facet of motorsport showcasing the very latest technologies, products and services.
We at Lane Motorsport have made a significant addition to the range of accessories we offer specifically for use with the recently introduced ultra-miniature, high performance Size 01 8STA connectors produced by Souriau.
Souriau, the leading manufacturer of 38999 military connectors and 8STA motorsport connectors, is 100 years old and, as a Souriau-assembling distributor, we have been part of their story for more than 30 years. Watch our video!
As we've reported before, each year LU Motorsport (Loughborough University Motorsport) develops, builds, tests and races a new single seat race car. From CAD to test circuit, these vehicles are designed from a blank sheet of paper, with the knowledge and expertise from over a decade of racing experience.
Last year we told you about our involvement with Loughborough University and its exciting racing car project which did so well in last year’s Formula Student competition. You may remember Lane Motorsport provided a variety of Souriau 8STA connectors for use throughout the car. Loughborough University ended 2015 as the 3rd UK team in the World rankings and, now, the team has unveiled its car for 2016 – the LFS16.
We are happy to announce a new range of protective caps designed for high performance circular connectors that meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-38999 and MIL-DTL-26482.
We have now added a new version of Souriau’s 8STA circular connector with an integrated clinch nut to our product portfolio, aimed specifically at the motorsport sector.
