The Dunlop Fleet raring to go

Dunlop Motorsport have called upon Carrier Transicold to keep their racing tyres in winning condition while in transit

Dunlop Motorsport service over 300 racing events around the globe each year, so it is imperative that tyres are kept at a steady temperature during transport to ensure they’re in the best possible shape for race day.

For this reason, they’ve turned to the Carrier Transicold Vector 1550 unit who teamed up with M6 Motor Bodies to produce the trailers.

“We tasked M6 Motor Bodies with creating a very specialised trailer that would keep our tyres in the best possible condition,” said Tony Duffy, motorsport transport manager of Dunlop Motorsport. “By teaming with Carrier Transicold, M6 Motor Bodies has produced trailers that are exactly as we wanted, and we will put them to good use at events around the world.”

The new trailers feature an innovative design that allows them to expand their width when parked. They are also fitted with special tyre racks to allow safe storage of tyres while on the move and on location.

“The new trailers are the first of their type to enter Dunlop’s fleet, and we are looking forward to the positive impact the trailers will have,” said Chris Luckman, general manager, M6 Motor Bodies.

Carrier Transicold’s Vector 1550 units allow for precise temperature control of +/- 0.8 degrees Celsius, and they heat or cool the load space, ensuring the set point is maintained in cold or hot climates. At approximately 740 kilograms, the Vector 1550 unit is one of the lightest refrigeration units on the market and will help Dunlop Motorsport optimise its payload capacity, whilst still offering all of the benefits associated with a temperature-controlled load space.
