BNM’s fame for engineering excellence and flexibility has spread far and wide in the area of motor sport and recreational sport utility vehicles. Ordinary OEM parts are sometimes insufficient to withstand the high performance requirements or stresses introduced when vehicles are taken to the extreme.
BNM’s CNC machining plant and professional services attracts unique requirements from the diverse pool of motor sport fanatics, including sporting entrepreneurs, sport club members and race series manufacturers such as Formula Renault and GP2.
Suppliers from various race series require prompt delivery for regular racing parts and full material traceability and a high level of workmanship which sometimes cannot be quantified but is a critical feature of any performance enhancing component. Parts are mostly low volume and the chosen materials tend to be exotic, Superalloys or high performance alloys with excellent resistance to creep and stress rupture and capable of performing at high temperature and applied stresses.
Requirements tend to be unique for a specific project or are ordered as a result of a problem solving exercise. BNM is proud to participate in any motor sport project such as the manufacture of battery terminals for the K1 Evelio prototype which launched at 2011 Goodwood festival of speed.
