CSP will partner with Kinetic Racing to solve the problem of tyre pickup and improve aerodynamic performance for the 2017 season.
Kinetic Racing compete in Touring Car Endurance Series
Seat Leon Supercopa use a 2l turbo charged engine. The power is delivered via a Seat Sport DSG gearbox.
Mike Nash of Kinetic Racing explains:
A specific issue which Kinetic Racing and every other endurance team suffers from is ‘wheel pickup.’
This occurs when the discarded tyre rubber is driven over. The hot, sticky rubber can then find itself stuck to the inside of the wheel rims (barrels) see pics.
As can be seen in the photo above, the size of the discarded rubber can be up to fist size.
The consequence is that the wheel will be out of balance for the remainder of the stint (up to two hours), this will cause vibration to travel along the drive train and cause un-necessary wear on
and all the way in to the gearbox.
During the pit stop all four wheels are changed, fully cleaned and re-tyred ready for the next stint
The benefits of avoiding pickup are multiple:
Prevent un-necessary wear and tear on drivetrain
Maintain balance of wheel
Allow pit crew to focus on other tasks than cleaning wheels
Driver comfort massively improved due to harmonious vehicle
“To have a product that can bring these benefits would be a fantastic addition to our inventory within the pit garage, and it would be a product that we would be very keen to test and develop”

CSP Super Slick Aeroflow coating will significantly improve aerodynamic flow by providing a super slick surface and significantly reducing the co-efficient of friction.
CSP coating will reduce the build up of tyre rubber and debris on the vehicle – any build up on front splitter and rear diffuser will negatively impact the vehicle aerodynamics and the vehicle downforce and lift will be disrupted.
CSP Develop and formulate patented technology that provides superior performance.
Working with £9.8m Centre for Global Eco Innovation CSP have developed specific products to Clean Shine Protect your vehicle.
Specialising in Nano Particle Protection systems for Paint Glass Wheels Fabric and Leather that serve to seal and protect the finish.
