Motorsport specific hoses & fittings
In Australia motorsport happens all year round, shortly the season will end for some while it will start for others.
Rallying, circuit racing, hillclimbs and motorkhanas are winding down during October and November in readiness for the summer break. If your sport is winding down you may use the summer break to repair, replace or reinvent your vehicle.
On the other hand drag racing, speedway, show ‘n’ shine cars are stepping up to a summer start and of course the boating fraternity with ski and drag boat racing will be getting ready too.
If your motorsport is starting up you will be well on the way to completing your vehicle – whether it’s been a whole reinvention or just a refresh it’s time to look at replacing hoses and fittings.
