HMG Paints and Prodrive have worked on joint projects on and off the track. HMG supplies a system of paints to protect and coat the factory facilities at Prodrive’s brand new headquarters in Banbury, U.K.

The partnership has continued with Aston Martin Racing cruising to victory at the FIA Endurance World Championship (WEC) Six Hours of Silverstone in April and the FIA WEC Six Hours of Spa race in May.

The partnership aims to advance the competitive edge of both racing teams by developing a range of performance-boosting products. Plans are already in place to develop a weight reduction program that will minimize excess coatings usage alongside a heat management coating for interior and exterior use.

HMG Special Projects Director John Fenton says, “After an incredible first two years, we are really excited for the future of our relationship with Prodrive. The partnership has created a stir across HMG, and we relish the chance to continue developing new coatings for such an elite racing team.”
