Paul and Danske Bank’s John Deery Discuss our Range of Motor Sport Trailers

We are very lucky to have an old fashioned and hugely supportive bank manager in John Deery of Danke Bank who understands customer relations and that support to manufacturing businesses is crucial to building the economy. Below is a very recent article from Danke Bank’s Vision magazine which is aimed at promoting businesses at home and abroad. Our feeling is that if you have a product and a sensible business plan aimed at developing your market then with the help of a bank manager like John you can make it happen.

Ballygowan company racing into export lead

A Ballygowan-based company, with the support of Danske Bank, is investing in turning its unique motorsport product into an international export.

MotorSport Trailers, a family firm, has designed and developed a range of trailers which combine vehicle transport with a living area. Their innovative designs are suitable across the wide range of motorsport disciplines and are designed specifically to service the growing motorsport community.

The investment will enable the firm to scale its operations from bespoke manufacture to full production. MotorSport Trailers is currently negotiating distributors for GB, Europe, Australia, North America and the Middle-East.

Paul McCartan, managing director of Motorsport Trailers, welcomed the deal: “With the support of Danske Bank, we’ve been able to turn our idea into a product that will sell around the world. We’ve seen exceptional demand for what we do, and by paying close attention to market conditions, we’ve taken this opportunity to launch something truly unique.

“There simply isn’t another firm doing what we’re doing – motorsport is a close-knit community, so our reputation for quality products will help us to build a preeminent international export business.”

John Deery, Business Manager at Danske Bank’s Belfast Finance Centre said: “Innovation and export are two key components of rebalancing the Northern Ireland economy and Motorsport Trailers is right at the forefront of both. This is a forward-thinking local business seizing the initiative and creating market-leading products suitable for export right across the world.”

Motorsport Trailer’s clients include some of the most well-known names in motorsport, including XGAMES 17 gold medal winner, Liam Doran, and former Superkart World Champion, Trevor Roberts. The firm hopes to take on a number of new staff as a result of the deal, ultimately leading to an expansion of their premises in Ballygowan.

Design Improvements to the 5600 Car Transporter Trailer

Motorsport Trailers is committed to constant improvements in design and build in order to deliver world class products and the newly revamped 5600 series of car transporting trailers reflects this approach. Frankly, we think that it’s a cracker!

This particular beauty has an internal bulkhead which divides the living and garaging area but the design improvements have been made across the series and beyond – the photos of the interior are on the gallery page.  (Spoiler alert!) These improvement will be incorporated into a new addition to our unique and ever expanding range of motor sport trailers which combines a living and garaging area into a single frame – so keep watching this space.

So what’s new? Well, we’ve taken a long look at the internal layout and giggled things around to provide more storage space. The sleeping area on this model has also seen a revamp with a newly designed sliding bed which allows up to four to sleep in comfort.  The work put into the release of the 4300 kart trailer was also put to good effect as we took the kitchen area with its cooker and sink and the seperate shower / toilet pod and were able to standardise across the series which helps on the build time and therefore we can deliver your trailer quicker.

As ever, the quality of finish and attention to the small details are paramount to our team and this trailer reflects this approach. We know that our customers invest heavily in time and hard earned cash into their motor sports and we need to ensure that we do this commitment justice. To ensure this, we use only the best materials from industry leaders and we’ve developed many of the specialist components ourselves to ensure that our customers receive a trailer which will give them years of comfort and pleasure trackside. Our team of highly skilled craftsmen accept only the best and our vigourous quality assurance checks means that our customers get the quality that they are looking for every time.

Superkart World Champion Trevor Roberts uses a Motorsport Trailers 4300 Kart Trailer in 2013 British Superkart Series

Let’s face it, driving at 120MPH while sitting about 2 inches above the track is not really everyone’s idea of a fun weekend so those people that actually not only enjoy it but are also world champions have something a little bit special about them. We’re very pleased to be able to work closely with one of these rare individuals – Northern Ireland’s own 250cc Superkart World Champion Trevor Roberts. Trevor was instrumental in the design and build of our 4300 series kart trailer which has been launched to bring our concept of combining a  motor racing garaging area and a superbly detailed living area into the same frame. This means that those who love racing and want to combine a bit of trackside comfort with saving the pennies on the cost a motorhome can get exactly what they want. Also, as our 4300 kart trailer is based on a lightweight chassis it’s towable behind your average family car.

We’ve completely seperated the living and garaging areas and the highly detailed finish gives you motorhome levels of comfort but not at that price! There’s a fully equipped kitchen, including a fridge for the after race drinks, and the outside LPG BBQ point will add to the post race fun and socials as you swap stories with the team. There’s options for sleeping up to four, a self contained shower/ cassette toilet room and loads of optional extras – we can even install a satellite TV system.

The garaging area can transport 2 karts, has underfloor storage options, a high level tyre rack and we can put perfo panelling on the door for easy access to tools during the pre-race final checks.

Trevor is using a 4300 kart trailer along with Mark Vaughan and Phil Featherstone as part of DVR Racing in this season’s MSA British Supoerkart Championships so look out for it and the team as they hopefully race away with some silver.
