System Store Solutions Motorsport Division Continues to Set the Standard in Motorsport Workshop Design and Storage. The University of Bolton & RLR Msport The University of Bolton is one of the few academic locations in Britain where students have the opportunity to study Automotive Performance Engineering by working closely with local employers, and with a respected LMP2 team, RLR Msport, which has been located within the university campus, and System Store Solutions were involved in the re-location from the start. This was an exciting opportunity for the team with consideration needed for providing an efficient workspace for the RLR engineers as well as space for the university students to study and observe.
Carlin Motorsport Work is set to begin on ‘Phase 2’ of Carlin’s workshop where the team will be increasing the number of race bays to manage the expansion of drivers to the team.

System Store Solutions at the Heart of the Way Forward for Motorsport Training System Store Solutions was invited to design and build the workspace environment for RLR Msport after team owner and head lecturer of the Automotive Performance Engineering department, Nick Reynolds, saw the work we had completed at F1 teams Red Bull Racing and Caterham. “We saw the system used for Red Bull Racing and Caterham F1 set-ups and it was exactly what we wanted here for the team RLR workshops at the University of Bolton. Now we have it installed it’s superb and a real selling point for CAPE (Centre of Automotive Performance Engineering), and a fabulous space for students to gain a real feel for working as part of a race team. Everyone’s delighted with it!” The Centre has been fitted out with specialist worktops and storage cabinets, including study zones for the students where it is possible to take notes and observe the team at work whilst still central to the action. There was an additional
fully kitted out composites room and a separate laboratory also designed and installed, which enables the University of Bolton to offer the very best in degree courses, in BSc and BEng, as well as ensuring
RLR Msport has an environment to build the best car for the seasons campaign. In particular, the university and team chose a very hard wearing Trespa worktop which is not only very durable but looks stunning and turns the whole area into a great showcase zone for all visitors to get a real feel of the quality of work being undertaken. Again we worked seamlessly with our worktop solutions partner, Eaton Timber Solutions, to create the stunning finish achieved. We are delighted to have been able to provide the perfect working environment for the team and students together and look forward to hearing news of both the team and students in years to come.

Facilitating the Installation of a New Workspace for Greaves Motorsport and 3D Engineering
Jacob Greaves, owner of Greaves Motorsport explains “With the new 10,000 sqm build we had the perfect opportunity to install a workspace that was a practical, clean and modular, to suit our needs in delivering competitive cars. At the core of our team is Greaves
3D Engineering so we looked for bespoke, turnkey workspace solutions that matched our needs for both the racing team and the engineering side of
our business. System Store Solutions designed and installed the workshop, engineering facility and island unit bases with four machine slots, which would work as hubs within the workshop. Also installed was a mezzanine floor and 2 race bays for the Nissan powered Zytek’s with all the lines and storage required to run the team effectively and efficiently. “The work was carried out while we were at Sebring so gave us the minimum of fuss during the install period and we returned to find the System Store Solutions team had worked to a very high standard, giving us exactly what we asked for – a clean, high quality workspace where we can develop our
cars and engineering business for the future” commented Jacob “I was impressed with the level of communication and support
System Store gave us from the initial designs to the follow up work. They are a very professional, yet relaxed outfit, who work with you to ensure you receive what you are wanting. I am very pleased with the finished result and would recommend them to any team”.
Investigating the Success of the Workshops at Comtec Racing “At Comtec, we heard of the high quality work provided by System Store Solutions from other teams in the paddock and with our team growing and some great plans for the development of our workshops it made sense to see what System Store Solutions could offer us. They were great in accommodating our needs, even when we decided to change the brief for the new race bays and we have kept in contact since the build to ensure our growth plans work in the best way possible for the team.”
It is critical for us at System Store to not only deliver an efficient and clean environment for the engineers and technicians to work in, but also one that lasts for many years, still looking great, as more and more often a race team’s workspace has become part of their overall testament of who they are as a team. So when we spoke to Ashley Edwards, Comtec Racing’s Technical Director, recently we were delighted to find that all the Fami kit and worktops throughout the race bays and workshop still look like new and the flexible workspace has facilitated the different uses the team required from the area. In addition, through the season, visitors have commented on how competent and professional the environment looks. “It was great to sit down with John and plan out their workshop’s development as motorsport is more than just a division of System Store Solutions, it is a passion for all of us!.” commented David Price.
”We have total confidence that our Fami kit has the ability to last for many years and still look fresh but it is always good to get glowing feedback from our customers as time goes by”
BTCC Champions Eurotech Racing We are delighted that System Store Solutions now sponsors Eurotech Racing and Andrew Jordan, the 2013 BTCC Champion. It was during the supply of a re-fit for Eurotech Racing’s workshop near Tamworth that System Store Solutions MD, David Price and Andrew Jordan got talking, culminating in System Store supporting the Eurotech Team in their defence of their BTCC title.
and Andrew fought to the very last corner of the 2013 BTCC season and felt that, by agreeing to sponsor Eurotech Racing, we will be able to watch their growth and success continue.” Andrew Jordan “System Store Solutions sponsorship has been fantastic. They are a very well organised outfit and their support has enabled us to raise our workspace environment to be far more ergonomic for the engineers, and means we can now keep a clean and tidy workspace, raising our profile to sponsors and partners to see when they visit us.
David Price commented “System Store Solutions is very particular about whom we decide to sponsor, but we were impressed with the way Eurotech Racing
Carlin Continue to Expand on their Race Bays For Carlin’s technicians it is imperative that they have a clean and efficient working environment to match the standards of today’s F1 team race bays, so they can deliver motorsport stars of the future. Our original work was completed to the exact requirements and delight of Trevor Carlin, owner of the team, and he is now looking to the Phase 2 expansion of the workshops, inviting System Store Solutions to again provide the perfect install solutions. Phase 2 includes the provision of further race bays to both the Formula Renault 3.5 series and the F3 championship sides of the team, to enhance the highly efficient, tidy and functional workspace already in place. “I am absolutely delighted with the durability and finish of the original workspace and the work System Store has done for us in the past” commented Trevor Carlin. “We are keen to see what System Store Solutions
can give us with Phase 2. We are very grateful to Carlin for the ability to film Phase 1 so we can showcase the level of design and install we provide to all our customers, in our promotional activities.
