Silverlake establishes a recycled green parts footprint in the UK motorsports market

Silverlake Automotive Recycling [Silverlake] is pleased to be the ‘go to’ supplier of quality graded, recycled green parts for the UK motorsports market. The company’s partnership with the C1 Racing Club and Club Racing UK has seen its message, on just how much race teams can save by ‘going green’, permeating the market and demand for its service growing.

Silverlake saw the opportunity for motorsports teams to greatly reduce their repair and maintenance costs whilst ensuring vehicle safety, through the use of recycled green parts. The company set out to educate the motorsport community on the benefits and to build confidence in recycled green parts. Race teams can save up to 70% of RRP with Silverlake’s recycled green parts, which come quality graded and with full provenance details. They also avoid the delays now common when trying to source new parts and the motorsports community can be proud of reducing its carbon footprint with the environmentally friendly approach.

Allen Prebble, managing director at Silverlake said:

“We are proud to be supporting the UK motorsport market in this targeted way. Running two race teams ourselves in the annual C1 Racing Series, for which we are headline sponsor, we know first-hand the savings to be made in money and time. We were taking recycled green parts to the race meetings to repair our own vehicles trackside and the interest from other race teams saw us begin to carry extra stocks to meet their needs. Our experience indicated the gap in the market and after further research, a recycled green parts proposition for UK Motorsports, delivering the product direct to their door, was a natural next step for us as a business. The fact that racing teams, travelling around tracks at high speeds, trust the product also helps to reinforce consumer confidence.”

Silverlake dismantles end-of-life vehicles at its Authorised Treatment Facility in Southampton which is compliant with Environment Agency regulations. It images, grades, catalogues and stores recycled green parts in line with the UK Standard, for which it is audited and certified by the Vehicle Recyclers’ Association. Customers can buy parts online, by phone or in person and the company’s fleet of dedicated delivery vans can deliver nationwide.

Club Racing UK is a central hub for all UK based club racing. A thriving community, it provides club racers of all levels a platform to share information and advice. Club Racing UK described how its partnership with Silverlake supports its ethos to help fellow racers save money wherever possible: “It’s no secret that motorsport is expensive so it makes total sense to partner with Silverlake to help supply recycled green parts to as many teams and drivers around the UK and to drive the increasing upkeep costs down. Having seen how meticulous Silverlake is and the quality of its customer service, we have absolute confidence in the products the company supplies.”

Robin Welsh from the C1 Racing Club explained:

“We are delighted to be able to offer our members the added value of access to discounted, recycled C1 parts through our partnership with Silverlake. We know the parts are quality graded and meet the UK Standard and we know our members have confidence in the Silverlake service and are happily benefitting from the savings and convenience of track side spares and door-to-door deliveries.  It’s a win-win all round.”
