Cole Trucksport had a successful weekend at the latest British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) race meeting, held at Thruxton Circuit on 3rd and 4th July, securing three podium finishes.

Simon Cole and the Cole Trucksport (CTS#41) team secured two second-place finishes, along with a third- and fifth-place finish over the course of the weekend, leaving the team in good stead ahead of the next race at Donington Park.

The weekend was also a great achievement for Borg & Beck, as the Cole Trucksport team truck, the Beast, completed all five races using just a single set of Borg & Beck CV Brake Discs. Weighing in at more than five tonnes and producing in excess of 1000bhp, the Beast needed stopping power that could be relied upon to go the distance while maximising speed through the corners.

Safety and durability are at the heart of the Borg & Beck brand and when it comes to effective braking, in both the passenger car and commercial vehicle (CV) market, offering guaranteed performance and dependability. These values are what keep the First Line Ltd and Cole Trucksport relationship strong, as the division two racing team can confidently fit Borg & Beck’s Pads and Discs to the Beast time and again.

Simon Cole commented: “It was once again another exhilarating few races and we had great fun making our mark in front of the bumper crowds at what is regarded as one of the best race weekends of the season.

“We choose to fit Borg & Beck Braking to the Beast because of their high reliability and stopping power. The braking products have never let us down, and their proven consistency and reliability shone through once again, especially as we didn’t need to change the discs at all over the course of the weekend. The pads also perform extremely well and feel great under the pedal."

The next BTRC race will be held at Donington on 21st and 22nd August. You can follow all the race action on Facebook, by searching for CTS #41 Racing / Cole Trucksport and follow, like and share First Line Ltd news and updates by searching for @firstlineltd.
