MagTape® Xtra™ on-track at the BTCC

Client: Handy Motorsport

Product: MagTape® Xtra™ Matt

Le Mark’s MagTape® Xtra™ Matt provided on-the-spot repairs at the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), one of the best-loved, most illustrious and famous motor racing championships in the world.

With tight turnarounds between races at the BTCC and a fair amount of damage to their car to repair, Handy Motorsport turned to Le Mark’s MagTape® Xtra™ Neon green gaffer tape for strong and fast emergency repairs which gives the team more time to focus on engineering and maintenance-based preparations.

With extremely tight time frames between their races, usually around one to two hours, Handy Motorsport generally faces quite a bit of damage to their car that needs repairing before the next race.

“The damage repairs need to be as quick and easy as possible as we still have a lot of mechanical and engineering-based preparation to be done in the same timeframe” explained Handy Motor Sport’s performance engineer, Matt Taylor.

“Le Mark’s MagTape® Xtra™ is perfect as it’s strong, fast and easy on the eye for quick repairs as we can reproduce our livery with the tape if needed on major repairs”.

“We chose Le Mark’s tapes as it was a good colour match to our car, so I thought it was worth trying the standard black and white MagTape® Xtra™ tapes as well. We find they are the best value for money we can find as we go through a lot of it!”
