Carter specialised motorsport bearings provide a competitive advantage on the next generation of race car.

When Lola Drayson Racing wanted to set a new UK Speed Record for an electric car, they asked Carter to provide the expertise and bearings to do it with. The result? A new UK speed record for electric cars at 204mph. Carter specialist bearings for motorsport applications can be found in a wide variety of environments on all sorts of the most advanced and successful competition vehicles. Gearboxes, suspension struts and brackets, hubs and electric motors are just a few of the applications areas in which our high-tech bearings find their way to the podium, time after time.

Motorsport has always been a testbed for advanced technologies, and the development of electric racing vehicles looks set to continue accelerating at an unprecedented rate. Bearing technology is one of the key areas that offers a direct link between lightness, smoothness, quiet operation and the production of torque that electric motors are famed for; and Carter bearing technology remains at the forefront of these developments and advances in 21st Century motorsport technology.


Carter is located in Oxford, right in the centre of where 75% of worldwide motorsport research, design, development and manufacturing is said to take place.
