ALWAYSE Ball Units are a winning solution for BTC Norlin Racing


Alwayse Engineering congratulates BTC Norlin Racing on their win at the Croft Circuit! After starting in pole position, driver Dan Lloyd took the chequered flag in the British Touring Car Championship race.

BTC Norlin Racing specifies Ball Transfer Units from Alwayse for their suspension set up system.

For the system, a wheel substitute was required to provide 3600 movement with low friction. Alwayse Ball Units were chosen for their ability to provide this with zero offset/swivel, therefore enabling instant directional changes. Paul Hartley, Chief Mechanic at BTC Norlin Racing explains:

“The set up moves freely in all directions when making adjustments, allowing precise measurement of the suspension set up.”

The units are fixed on the underside of a jig with the ball bearings facing down, and as the car is lowered, they are brought into contact with the set up patch beneath.

For over 75 years, Alwayse Ball Units have provided engineering solutions that allow customers to outpace the competition, whether it’s in motorsport, machinery design, or materials handling in any industry. Models are available to suit the most arduous conditions, with load capacities ranging from 5kg to 10 tonnes per unit.
