Team HARD. Racing Bring the Shine to Kent

Team HARD. Racing Bring the Shine to Kent

Team HARD. Racing has yet more exciting news today as we grow on our already well-established partnership with Autobrite Direct. The partnership originates from 2017 whereby Autobrite supplied Team HARD. Racing with quality products for our motorsport regime. They’ve been helping all 30+ of the teams’ cars gleam on track ever since.

Now the team are all settled in at our new HQ in Maidstone, we now have the space for our very own showroom and shop facility. As a team we have selected a small group of our suppliers and partners to fill the showroom with their excellent products to offer to our customers. It’s very much all about quality rather than quantity.

Autobrite Direct was created in 2005 by Mark and Jill to replace an existing successful mobile valeting operation (Prestige Valeting) after spotting a gap in the market for a high quality, independent car care specialist supplier.

In those early days, Autobrite was run by Mark and his wife Jill, from a spare bedroom in their home, bottling, labelling and packing products by hand.

Today, Autobrite Direct is an industry leading and world-famous provider of bespoke, high quality car care and detailing products. Autobrite Direct is on the cutting edge of new technologies and product development for the fast-growing detailing industry. Unlike other providers, Autobrite invest heavily into R&D of new products and all their products are exclusive to us rather than rebottling and relabelling off the shelf solutions.

Autobrite have been flooding the market in the North of the country for several years now as their HQ and showroom is based in Stoke-on-Trent. They also have a huge online shop and social media following. Team Hard. Racing and Autobrite saw an opportunity to set up a hub for their products in our vast premises. From here we’ll be able to offer everything that Autobrite sells. We will have an Autobrite display of selected products in our showroom and anything that we don’t have we can order in. We will also have an Autobrite shop on our Team Hard. Racing website.

Team HARD. Racing’s Sales Manager, Steve Johnson, is over the moon with this latest achievement.

“This is brilliant news for both us at Team Hard. Racing and Autobrite Direct. The car cleaning and valeting business has grown massively over the last few years and this is the perfect time for Autobrite to grow and we have the infrastructure to help with that. Having our showroom and shop stocked with Autobrite products and the option to order their products in, gives our customers the support and access to Autobrite’s high quality and second to none products. We look forward to a prosperous future with them.”

Autobrite’s co-director Jill Moss is excited with the growth of the partnership between them and the team.

“We are extremely excited to be working with Team HARD. Racing and expanding our partnership to include an Autobrite shop at their impressive HQ. The shop will be the only stockist of Autobrite products in Kent which is a huge bonus for both companies.”

The showroom opens this Saturday 30th November and you can join us for free at HQ where we’re hosting an open day with a race car line up, the opening of our shop / showroom, car display, BBQ, merchandise, giveaways and much more! Unit 3 Detling Aerodrome, Maidstone, Kent. ME14 3HU.

Team HARD. Racing Increase their Flow with K&N Filters

Team HARD. Racing Increase their Flow with K&N Filters

Team HARD. Racing can today confirm an exciting new opportunity as an authorised dealer and fitter for worldwide famous K&N® Filters. Team Hard. Racing can now offer a service to our customers whereby they can purchase directly from our new showroom at our HQ in Maidstone, order online through our shop and have them fitted by our highly trained race mechanics in our workshop. Team Hard. Racing are also delighted to be using K&N® filters for our 2020 British Touring Car campaign.

In the early 1960s, two motorcycle racers, Ken Johnson and Norm McDonald (K&N), developed a ground-breaking new idea for an air filter—one that could perform under the demands of dusty, dirty off-road environments. After experimenting with numerous types of filter media, they discovered that an oiled cotton design allowed the filter to not only capture contaminants very efficiently, but also allowed it to be washed and reused, and the original K&N® High-Flow Air Filter™ was born. Five decades later, K&N® is still innovating industry-leading filtration technology and offers outstanding protection for everything from top-fuel dragsters to commuter vehicles across the globe.

In addition to performance air filters, K&N® now manufactures a variety of other protection and performance products, including air intake systems, oil filters, fuel filters, cabin air filters, and home air filters, with a reputation for exceptional quality and customer service that millions of customers trust.

K&N® has maintained active involvement in racing and motorsports throughout its history and has sponsored championship-winning teams in most subdisciplines of motorsport. A long and storied racing heritage continues to contribute to the development of products for all types of vehicles and engines.

Team HARD. Racing’s BTCC manager, Jamie Warren, is delighted to be working with K&N® Filters for the foreseeable future. “Over the Winter refresh we constantly revise and research the product(s) and parts that we use on our BTCC. We must look at what options we have and what we believe is best for our cars for the next season. K&N® Filters are famous for being the best in the business and I’m excited to have them onboard for 2020. It’s also a great opportunity for us to be an authorised dealer and fitter for K&N® in our new HARD. Performance workshop.”

David Hill, Sales Manager for K&N® is excited for the future working together. “We’re delighted to start working with Team Hard and proud to have them as our newest Official Dealer. As well as access to the full range of K&N® products, they will also be able to offer a full installation service. It’s also great that Team Hard has chosen us to be their filter supplier for their 2020 BTCC campaign. We’re also delighted to have been invited to the teams open day this coming Saturday (30th Nov), to which we’ll be bringing our display stand, some products and will be on hand to answer any questions that people may have.”
