HARTLETPOOL, U.K. – With many children at home as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, Textar is recognizing the importance of welcomed pastimes and has created a series of coloring activities based on the Textar-sponsored Newell & Wright Motorsport trucks, which the brand is sponsoring throughout the 2020 British Truck Racing Association (BTRA) Championship.
The younger generation and motorsport fans alike can either get creative with their own color scheme or copy the original in the activities, which can be downloaded here.
John Newell started using Textar brake pads and discs in motorsport in 1999 and has never looked back.
Textar friction products for commercial vehicles are a perfect combination of superior braking performance, long service life and low disc and drum wear. Thanks to their durability and performance, Textar brake pads perform solidly over the entire race weekend and even afterwards, as Newell & Wright use the brake pads on their haulage fleet.
Sue McKay, TMD Friction Global Category Manager CV, said: “Truck racing is a family sport and with many children regularly in attendance, it seemed an ideal opportunity to create an enjoyable activity that helps to keep children busy while at home.”
