The future is bright for Racetech Harnessing

Derbyshire based Racetech Harnessing, developer of an innovative LED headlight system, is continuing to see success after its creation was used by six cars at this year’s famous 24Hrs Le Mans.   

The headlight was featured on two Toyota Hybrid LMP1 cars and three Zytek LMP2 cars, one of which was driven by British driver Martin Brundle. It also appeared on the ‘Nissan Delta Wing’, which is instantly recognisable due to its distinct design. The Codnor based company is also talking to two luxury car manufacturers about potential orders in the near future.

Transport iNet, which is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund Programme, originally provided matched funding to assist Racetech Harnessing with the initial development of the LED headlight system.  It continued its support in 2011 by providing a further grant for its “long range” lens which was used at LeMans last year.

Racetech Harnessing and Transport iNet are now in talks about securing funding for the design of optics that will fit into a new, high powered motorsport headlight for the 2013 season.  

 John Frodsham, Transport iNet Director, said: “We’re delighted that Racetech Harnessing has continued to develop its offering and that this fantastic innovation continues to be applied and exploited in the intensely competitive   motorsport industry.

Racetech Harnessing also feature as one of the five most innovative manufacturers in the Midlands in the September 2012 issue of Midlands Business Insider News.  The article called “The mind in the machine” states you have to be inventive to survive in manufacturing.
