4 reasons why awnings are a must-have for your race crew

Are you part of a motorsport race crew looking to enhance your performance and efficiency on and off the track? Look no further than us at The Awning Company – the premier choice for motorsports awnings. With over 30 years of experience, we specialise in creating bespoke, high-quality awning structures for racing teams. What’s more, we’ve worked with some of the biggest names in motorsport, such as Motorsport UK, Peugeot, Pirelli, and BMW, just to name a few.

As a motorsport crew member, you’ll know better than anyone else the importance of a comfortable workspace, which is why we make sure our awnings go beyond simply providing shelter. The GH Jumbo Windouts, Tech Tents, and GH Windout van awnings are built to withstand even the most demanding conditions, creating an environment that enhances your focus and concentration. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why our premier awnings are a must-have.


Race car awnings


Coordination for your team

Our awnings come in all shapes and sizes, so no matter the size of your race support vehicle, our team of experts can design and build you exactly what you need to house your team. Your bespoke, branded awning will serve as a central hub for your team members to gather to discuss anything from parts to strategy. It’ll help foster teamwork and coordination while enabling effective communication and planning, keeping everything running smoothly and, more importantly, on time.

Optimal working conditions

All of our awnings are manufactured and built at our Bolton factory with only the best quality materials to create a distraction-free workspace on the side of the track (or anywhere else), helping your team focus on their tasks and complete repairs efficiently and accurately. They’ll also help to reduce noise and glare, which can negatively impact your team’s concentration and overall ability to work – which isn’t ideal in a fast-paced motorsports environment, when timing is often the essence.

Protection from the elements

If you have a lot of experience working on races, you’ll know how important it is to have a durable, comfortable shelter to protect you from the unpredictable weather conditions that can occur throughout the day. This is where our awnings come in – they provide a safe and comfortable space for your race crews to work under, regardless of whether it’s pouring rain, blistering sun, or strong winds.

Quality and customisation

Our team will work with you to create a design that perfectly meets your racing requirements, and that is built to the highest standards of quality. You can choose from a range of awning styles, each of which we can customise with your team’s unique branding designs. We’ll even custom-fit your awning to your vehicle at our flagship factory in Bolton, Lancashire, to make sure it’s perfect from seam to seam. Or if you’d prefer, we can provide you with custom-built awnings to fit yourself at your destination. Don’t worry; each of our products is designed for practicality and ease of use, so you’ll have no trouble setting up.

At the Awning Company, our team is always on hand to build your crew the perfect awning for style, comfort and functionality, whether that’s a Tech Tent, a rally marquee, or something else entirely! So, if you have any questions regarding awnings for your team, feel free to reach out to us on 01204 544900, and we’ll be happy to discuss.
