ATL in Action!

When The Flying Bulls discovered the fuel tanks in their B25 World War II Bomber had deteriorated beyond repair, and following a recommendation from their sister company Red Bull Racing Formula One team, ATL were parachuted in to design and create the bespoke replacements. Although an unexpected addition to the maintenance schedule, the fuel tanks were delivered and fitted in time to avoid any disruption to the build schedule and ATL look forward to seeing the B25 Bomber take to the skies once more.

McLaren-Logo
MP4-2B-2
As a special treat for the 72nd Goodwood Road Racing Club Members Meeting at Goodwood Race Circuit on 29-30 March, McLaren F1 supplied three of their finest Turbo-era Grand prix cars to entertain the crowds. Included in the three was the McLaren MP4/2 last driven by Niki Lauda on the way to the 1984 F1 Drivers World Championship crown. The car had not run since Portugal of the championship winning year and needed a substantial amount of preparation work, including replacing an ageing fuel cell. Having created the original fuel cell many years ago, as well as being continual supplier to the McLaren F1 team since, ATL acted fast to create a fuel cell that would enable the car to run without issue at the event and beyond.
