Brands hatch less drag

We are pleased to announce a new partnership with Sam Randon, the latest talent in the Michelin Clio Cup Series. We have long known that Airglide Ultimate reduces aerodynamic drag and this is of great importance for racing.

Brands hatch less drag

Take a look at this recent article:

Sam Randon broke his Michelin Clio Cup Series duck last weekend in the final round at Brands Hatch, dominating the racing and taking the overall road car win on both race days. Determined to make amends for finishing behind his more experienced team mate Tommy Ostgaard on six consecutive occasions, the teenager was also keen to impress a new local sponsor, Airglide Ultimate, whose paint finishing system – proven to reduce drag–was applied to Randon’s car during the previous week.

“I’ve been getting closer to team mate Ostgaard’s lap times each weekend so we knew the margin we had to make up,” said Randon, still in his rookie season.

“Reducing aerodynamic drag on the car could only help.”

Saturday qualifying followed a familiar pattern to previous weekends with Randon second on the grid behind Ostgaard, but a blistering start helped him leapfrog the Norwegian  into the first corner to take the lead.
With several consistent laps under his belt, Randon was able to pull out a lead and break the tow from the chasing pack, to take a comfortable victory. With renewed confidence, the JCB Academy student attacked the Sunday qualifying session determined to consolidate his position.

A spectacular last minute pole position in qualifying was followed by a lights to flag second victory of similar dominance to the previous day.

“I’ve been working so hard all year to beat Tommy, he’s been the man to beat all season and now we’ve managed to do it”, said a thrilled Randon, “I couldn’t have asked for much more this weekend, “I’ve done more than I set out to achieve this year so I’m really happy about that.” Randon now intends to build on his success this year and plan a 2014 campaign in the faster and more prestigious race car class.

“We want to progress to a more established class such as the Clio Cup cars, but we need to bring more partners on board as the costs climb at each step.” said father and mechanic Neil “it’s not just about stickers on the car, we have a lot to offer potential sponsors and would urge any business with an interest in this exciting sport to contact us at As we are finding with Airglide, it’s a real partnership.
