Silverlake is one of the UK’s leading vehicle recycling facilities, currently stocking over 50,000 reclaimed car parts across all make/model ranges. The company auctions over 250 salvage vehicles weekly and has over 1500 cars available for breaking; further increasing the opportunity to source parts.

Cars and reclaimed parts available from Silverlake include Audi, Volkswagen, Ford, Mazda, Citroen, Peugeot, Toyota and other manufacturers, all currently being raced in BRSCC formulae. Silverlake deliver parts nationwide. Collection is also available from the main Southampton site, and there is the possibility for Silverlake to bring parts to BRSCC race meetings when they are attending.

Allen Prebble, managing director at Silverlake Automotive Recycling, said:

“The case for motorsports teams to use reclaimed parts to cut their repair and maintenance costs and reduce their carbon footprint is compelling. The nature of the sport means parts wear and get damaged and must be replaced frequently. This is costly both for motorsport team bank balances and the environment. Increasing upkeep costs and delays in being able to source parts present race teams with challenges, especially with a short-lived racing series and season. Silverlake’s OEM reclaimed parts are quality graded to the VRA UK standard, come with full provenance details, are available now, and race teams can save up to 70% of RRP on new parts. We already supply reclaimed parts to a range of race teams, including those in the C1 Series, which we sponsor, and the feedback on quality, price and reliability has been really positive. We are delighted to partner with the BRSCC to raise awareness of the opportunity presented by reclaimed parts and to offer motorsport race teams a 10% discount on our parts.”
