Powering Paralympics GB

In the top echelon of sport, every thousandth of a second is significant. British dominance in Rowing and Cycling in particular has been achieved somewhat through the superiority of our equipment and research.

From McLaren offering advice on the aerodynamic efficiency of our rowing boats, to custom carbon fibre shoes for our cyclists, every technological opportunity for improved gains has been explored. Both the Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics have been the ultimate display of both Britain’s sporting success and our engineering prowess, and we are honoured to be a part of that.

The continuous stream of gold medals has brought the nation together over the summer, watching in unison as British athletes like the Brownlee brothers (wearing gear from Derby-based HUUB), Jonnie Peacock and Ellie Simmonds lived up to the lofty expectations and made us all proud.

The Paralympic atmosphere and sense of admiration is unrivalled in sport. Every athlete in the competition has a backstory of commitment, bravery and determination, and a single medal can be the culmination of a difficult and emotional journey. The events are inundated with superstars, and we are extremely proud to have made our own contribution to Britain’s quest for Paralympic glory.

Epm: technology group supplied the Tennis Foundation with carbon fibre wheelchair cases to help the Team Paralympics GB wheelchair tennis team transport their equipment to Rio.

Bring on Tokyo 2020!

2016 F1 season reaches its midpoint

An incredible run of victories from Nico Rosberg, the youngest ever grand prix winner in Max Verstappen and a fantastic effort from Lewis Hamilton to overturn a large point deficit in the championship table.

There’s been a plethora of exciting action so far in the 2016 F1 season, and we’re only halfway through.

It hasn’t just been about the front of the grid, either, with Manor Racing Team securing their first ever point at the Austrian Grand Prix, and the likes of Carlos Sainz, Sergio Perez and Kevin Magnussen showing impressive form in the midfield.

F1 also visited the beautiful city of Bakufor the first time, and recently made a return to Hockenheim. The fans attended Silverstone in their droves as always, and the rich and famous mingled with the drivers in Monaco.

The championship battle is hotting up with some impressive upgrades from Red Bull Racing which have allowed them to gradually close the gap to Mercedes AMG Petronas. Though Lewis Hamilton currently leads by 19 points, he has an engine penalty to come and three rapid drivers behind him who could challenge his title at any time. In the longest season in the history of Formula 1, anything could happen. We don’t know about you, but we’re glued to our seats.
