Zircotec coating helps prevent fuel air locks in endurance race car


Zircotec’s ceramic coating was used on a Honda Civic race car to allowed its team to realise the true capacity of its petrol tank.

The team achieve a best ever 6th place in the 2008 Britcar 24 hour race. Zircotec’s exhaust coating permitted the team to fill the car with an extra 16 litres of fuel per stop. This in turn, allowed the car to run for an incredible three hours between stints, resulting in a class win, and with the car being the first front wheel drive car home.

Team manager Simon Mason comments…

“In the past we have struggled to get more than 94 litres of fuel into the car due to air locks in the warm fuel tank.”

“This year we could fill it right up to our 110 litre allowance.”
