Wheel Washer Takes To The Track
The Drester Wheel Washer – distributed by Beissbarth UK – has always been a firm favourite with customers who want that show-room sparkle. But now the Drester has moved from the showroom to the race circuit.
It turns out that the Drester Wheel Washer is the preferred choice for the highly successful RML team, who are targeting more glory in 2008 as they aim to add to their tally of 15 titles over the last 10 years. The team is gearing up for its challenge for WTCC glory following its best-ever season last year. RML will also compete at Le Mans itself and in the Le Mans Series – the scene of their most recent success in 2007.
Mark Busfield, RML Chevrolet Project Manager, said: “We have used the Beissbarth Drester Wheel Washer extensively, and are absolutely delighted with its performance. It is a top piece of kit, which is used at the factory following every race and test session, saving us a huge amount of time, plus the added safety benefits.
“As a professional race team, it is vitally important that we always look our best – however brake dust can be very difficult to completely remove. The combination of beads and water in this system is a huge improvement over anything we have used in the past – it removes grime that has become embedded in the wheel, cleans and then actually polishes it for a great finish.
“From my point of view one of the biggest benefits is the fact that as it is self-contained, and it protects hands from possible carcinogens contained within brake dust. This aspect is extremely important, and combined with the range of other features, I’m sure will be a huge attraction to other teams around the world.”
The Drester Wheel Washer is also good news for the environment, as it uses a biodegradable detergent and all dirt residues are safely removed, providing safe handling for the operators and no negative impacts on the wheel or tyre.
Commenting on the Drester’s performance, Beissbarth UK managing director, Philip Hodges said: “Responsible businesses are opting for equipment that does not negatively impact on the environment. When you add to that the benefits of safety, efficiency and economy you have a pretty powerful case for choosing the Drester.”
