26 August 2012 - Progressive Motorsport at Silverstone FIA World Endurance Championship
Progressive Motorsport, a motorsport engineering, research and development company based in Brackley, helped the “factory” Audi sportscar team achieve top results in a prestigious race at Silverstone last weekend (26 Aug).
Six Progressive engineers and technicians were on hand to help the Audi team accomplish first and third placings in the Silverstone Six Hours – a round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
The Northamptonshire company has been under contract to Germany’s Joest Racing to support their sportscar programme since 2006.
In that time, Progressive Motorsport has chalked 11 top-three rostrum finishes in the Le Mans 24 Hours with Audi including six outright race wins.
Progressive Motorsport, founded in 2004, is also involved in other motor racing categories including Formula One.

15 March 2012 - Blac - the fabulous story
Blac is a new innovative eyewear brand. Designer eyewear for men made in carbon and fibreglass with titanium strengthening. Carbon and fibreglass both have the unique texture, the lightness and the strength in common.
The fabulous story of Blac begins with designer Claus Bellinger and his fascination of Mclaren’s carbon-composite MP4-1 chassis, which rocked the Formula 1 world at Silverstone in 1981. The MP4-1 was the first fully composite Formula 1 chassis, designed as a moulding, rather than the traditional series of flat aluminium panels mechanically fixed together. The reward for challenging conventional thinking was a gigantic leap in strength and stiffness that would revolutionise racing car design.
Through the years Claus Bellinger had wished to design a frame in a new and innovative material like carbon and fibreglass.
Carbon and fibreglass are used in products where lightness and strength are determining factors: Airplanes, Formula 1 race cars, motorcycles, boats, knee joints, surfboards, and windmills, in Space Travel Industry, Ray and Charles Eames’ Fiberglass Chair (1948) and in Verner Panton’s Chair Classic (1960). Producing frames in carbon and fibreglass is a great challenge because it can’t be bended or adjusted.
Claus Bellinger assembled a design team comprised of designers, technical engineers and inventors. Together they created a vision: The new eyewear brand should be masculine, light, strong and in new and innovative design. The breakthrough came when a member of the design team went to look at a Matra Murena, the carbon sports car with three seats produced from 1980-83, and in that connection saw some beautifully designed knee joints at a very carbon competent surgical appliance maker!
The design team decided to produce Blac in Denmark because the demands regarding quality, finish, and craftsmanship could not be satisfied elsewhere. The production of Blac is a complicated process because every model is handmade and requires a very high standard of tools and three-dimensional moulds. All Blac models are handmade in a machine factory in Aarhus, Denmark.
