Walkers have been involved in motorsport since the early 70’s. National & International notoriety was achieved during a period in the 90’s when Walkers proprietor Steve Smith was campaigning a Lancia Delta Integrale in the British national rally championship. The Lancia Delta was the most reliable of rally cars. Over 3 consecutive years in the Group N catagory there were only 2 retirements and not one of those were due to a mechanical failure. To the envy of many teams & competitors from 4 World Rally Championship RAC Rally starts the Walkers Delta rally team achieved 4 finishes including 3rd in Group N as well as 20th & 21st overall. Today Walkers has world wide recognition of being the leading supplier of Lancia Delta road & motorsport parts, many of which are manufactured on site at the Northallerton base of Walkers in North Yorkshire.
Obviously with the extent of competition involvement Walkers easily expanded into Motorsport parts supply. A major part of this is the manufacture of aluminium competition radiators. Many private as well as manufacturer teams use Walkers for prototyping as well as production runs. Walkers have notably built radiators for the Ferrari Maranello challenge, Fiat, Alfa, Ford and Proton amongst many many others.
Walkers have several sole UK parts distributorships. Tecno2 performance products, Teknofibra heat resistant materials as well as Energa Lithium lightweight batteries.
Walkers supply the Teknofibra heat material to many of the UK based race & rally teams as well as to some notable Sports & road car manufacturers who use the material on their car production lines.
