Europe’s leading case manufacturer has had over thirty years experience in the field of design, production ans supply of specialist cases and foam inserts to many industry sectors. Motorsport cases are available for a wide variety of products and services including Telemetry, Electronics, Spares, Merchandise and even complete race cars!
5 Star has produced cases to house engines, telemetry equipment, wheels and tyres, workshop trunks including removable tables (pictured) and drawered racks for smaller accessories and spares. Wheel alignment cases as well garage graphics and 19″ racks are all popular choices when it comes to selecting motorsport cases.
Telemetry cases are becoming increasingly popular with race teams around the world. Ensuring not only the issue of equipment protection but also speed in setting up the telemetry systems, be it in the garages or on the pit-wall. Again, as with most specialist cases, telemetry system cases can be designed to suit individual requirements such as quantity and size of the display screens. Shown here is a popular layout of a telemetry systems case, housing twin 24″ displays.
Featuring a pivoting display panel that allows for ergonomic viewing of the displays, at various heights and angles. Shackles on the rear of the panel can be used to suspend the case from pit-wall trussing by means of quick-release karabiners. Other support and suspension methods can of course be incorporated into the case.
A removable lid protects the displays whilst in transit and a hinged, rear access flap is also included to aid connecting the displays. A recessed connector dish with mains inlet and TV connectors are included.
Large-scale telemetry system cases are also available, like the WSR version shown above. This featured six 24" screens, pull-out drawer for three laptops and a table facility.
Recently introduced is the ‘Euro-Crate’ rack. Comprising a matrix of the very versatile stacking containers made from durable polypropylene. These crates are 400mm x 600mm (L x D, external) and available in four standard depths…110mm, 160mm , 210mm and 320mm (internal).
We have found that these four are the most useful, whilst other depths are available to special order. Many variations on the amount of crates per case are available. Show on the left and below are just two versions and are complete with castors to the base and a removable front door. Case specification is from the Heavy Industrial range.
From tool chests and racks to spare engines and communications systems, 5 Star can supply a bespoke case for your team’s complete requirements.
Race Car Splitters
Whilst not well-known, 5 Star can produce 'splitters' or floors for race cars. CNC-machined from 12mm phenolic-faced plywood, these splitters are available for most race car types.
All we need is a CAD file (DXF, DWG, PDF, STEP, IGES etc.) either 2D or full 3D. If 2D files are sent, we'll also need the data for machining depths etc. 3D files will already have this data embedded. Our technical sales team will assist with this if necessary.
Recent expansion and investment into specialist digital printing and laminating facilities mean that 5 Star can now offer a bespoke branding service for most case options. So, when it comes to getting the message across in the all-important world of motorsport sponsorship and advertising, a branded case solution is now a reality. From one-off requirements to multiple and repeat orders, 5 Star’s branding service ensures a quick turnaround solution. Let us assist you with your branding options. We can offer full colour digitally printed vinyl, with a laminated exterior for durability, or simple screen-printed logos. Contact our sales team and they will assist you with selecting the right option for your team branding.
Don’t forget…5 Star Group now has ProTect Bags & Covers as a manufacturing division. Designing and producing a wide range of specialist padded bags and covers which find many applications in the Motorsport industry. Pit Boards, Wheels, Headlamps, Steering Wheels, Comms Headsets and much more are ideal equipment to be transported in padded bags.

Slip-over covers for existing equipment can also be manufactured in matching materials and colours.
