UniClutch announces NAPA team sponsorship for BTCC 2024 season

Date: Wednesday 20 March 2024

Game-changing clutch brand, UniClutch, has announced it will be partnering with the award-winning NAPA Racing UK team for the 2024 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season.

News of the sponsorship comes as UniClutch made its entrance into the UK at the start of the year, launching its ground-breaking clutch innovation, developed and manufactured by Australian specialist Clutch Industries.

UniClutch, set to revolutionise the upgrade clutch market for motor factors, installers, and end-users alike, offers a range of four products: UniClutch, UniClutch Sport, UniClutch Track, and UniClutch 4Terrain. These products are exclusively available from Alliance Automotive Group (AAG).

The UniClutch brand is making its debut onto the track this season, with its branding featuring on the NAPA Racing UK vehicles. The 2024 team will once again be led by defending champion Ash Sutton, along with Dan Cammish who is embarking on his third year in the NAPA Racing UK team, plus Daniel Rowbottom who returns for a second season and Sam Osbourne, completes the four-car line-up.

Following a triumphant 2023 season, where NAPA Racing UK clinched the Drivers, Manufacturers, and Teams Championships titles, the team is poised for another title pursuit, with UniClutch onboard.

Justin Batten, Clutch Industries general sales & marketing manager, comments: “Partnering with the NAPA Racing UK team presents an exciting opportunity for UniClutch to enhance our brand awareness in the UK market.

“UniClutch originated from a philosophy to redefine the way clutches are made, sold and fitted in a modern automotive industry, whilst focusing on premium materials, precise manufacturing and high-end performance specifications. We’re delighted to introduce the UniClutch brand to the UK and Irish markets and collaborate with our partners at Alliance Automotive Group (AAG) to deliver our innovative technology to the automotive aftermarket.”

Batten adds: “We’re looking forward to following the BTCC season this year and watching our logo race around the iconic UK racetracks! We’d like to wish Ash, Dan, Daniel, Sam and the whole NAPA Racing UK team the best of luck this season!”

The 2024 BTCC season kicks off at legendary racing venue Donington Park in Leicestershire on 27 / 28 April for rounds one, two and three. Nine further race weekends comprising qualifying, and three races follow at Brands Hatch Indy on 11 / 12 May, Snetterton (300) on 25 / 26 May, Thruxton and Oulton Park in June, Croft on 27 / 28 July and Knockhill 10 / 11 August.

The event calendar returns to the Donington Park Grand Prix circuit on 24 / 25 August, followed by Silverstone for the penultimate race event on 21 / 22 September, with the championship decider back at Brands Hatch on its Grand Prix circuit layout on 5 / 6 October 2024.

UniClutch offers a twin disc clutch system to increase torque capacity whilst, thanks to four patents, maintains OE levels of refinement like never seen before in a high-end performance clutch. 

As a totally sealed system it doesn’t use the vehicle’s flywheel as a friction surface – so provided the flywheel and ring gear are mechanically functional, the flywheel doesn’t need replacement or machining significantly saving time and money.

In the UK and Ireland, more than 800 AAG affiliates will have access to the UniClutch brand, which dramatically simplifies part number complexity and streamlines inventory management.
