The Plaig Bearings Sponsorship Program is a combination of Testing, Development and support for long term customers, particularly those who race regularly and have years of knowledge under their belt. The program in more detail:

To support the RC drivers who regularly use our product, trust it and spread the word to help promote our brand

Product testing – Our drivers, past and present have been incredibly valuable in testing products in many different categories of racing. Testing our bearings under extreme conditions such as:

RC Speed runs – Testing the limits of current technology, reaching speeds often over 200km/h, chasing down or holding onto current world records.

1/8 Nitro Off Road – Dirt and oil, high RPM Engines (45,000+rpm), landing large jumps on power, wheel bearings cop a pounding whether it’s a rough dusty track or a high grip clean track, bearings either get rattled to death or put under high cornering load. Last but not least clutch bell bearings, these little bearings are exposed to extreme RPM’s that are constantly stop/starting.

1/10 Electric Onroad – High RPM Motors, high cornering speeds & acceleration.

RC Drag Racing – Extremely high RPM motors, ceramic bearings are advantageous in this sport. The ultimate test in acceleration.

5th Scale Offroad – Dirt, oil, extremely large heavy cars racing off road with jumps and lots of bumper to bumper clashes.

1/10 Electric Off Road  – Exposure to dirt & dust, high powered high RPM motors, jumping and high speed cornering, Carpet tracks with high traction.

Nitro Onroad 1/10 & 1/8 – Extremely high RPM, Cornering speed, huge loads on all bearings including clutch bell bearings.

F1 in Schools is an international STEM competition involving over 17,000 schools in 44 countries. Students design, make & race their own miniature F1 cars which are capable of 0-80 km/h in around 1 second. There are 3 categories: Cadet, Development & Professional.

All Plaig Bearings Drivers are supported at Factory level, this means they do not pay for their products.
