UFI Filters is back on track in the British Truck Racing Championship, also for the 2023 season alongside Ryan Smith. This is a three-year collaboration between UFI Filters and the English driver, who has already won the BTRC championship seven times in a row.
The partnership highlights UFI Filters’ commitment to the heavy-duty world, both in original equipment and in a dedicated range in the aftermarket. In fact, UFI technologies are chosen by manufacturers representing 50% of the production of industrial vehicles worldwide. The sponsorship of Ryan Smith is a unique opportunity to combine forces in the name of innovation, extreme performance and success, bringing the UFI Filters technology name to the world of truck racing.
The British Truck Racing Championship is one of the most followed competitions in the UK, with vehicles weighing more than five tons and with a power of over 1000 HP.
The championship is divided into two classes; Division 1 hosts the most advanced machines that have custom braking and suspension systems, while Division 2 is more related to standard vehicles.
After winning the seventh consecutive title last year, confirming himself as the overall champion, Ryan Smith will race with a new 2023 Daimler Freightliner Truck, branded with UFI Filters, a giant with a customised racing setup directly by the driver and his team. 5,300 kg, 1,400 horsepower with a torque of 6,800 Nm and a ZF 16 S 221 manual gearbox, which can reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
Karl Ridings, UK & Ireland Sales Director & General Manager UK & Ireland – Aftermarket, comments: “We are proud to collaborate with Ryan Smith, a driver who has been able to demonstrate and confirm his great talent over the years. We are also excited to provide our passion for the racing world, in order to help Ryan in the battle for the 2023 season title”.
