INTRAX – our new suspension partner
19 Apr

From now on, i.e.Supercars has the Dutch suspension specialist INTRAX at their side as a powerful partner.

Intrax is a Dutch manufacturer of high-quality suspension technology with more than 40 years of intensive experience at the highest level of several motorsport disciplines. Intrax designs and manufactures shock absorbers, suspensions and wheels for Formula 1 cars, street cars and everything in between. All shock absorbers of Intrax are tailor made, as each set is designed based on the specifications of the car and the wishes of the driver, so truly a ‘custom build’.

Henk Thuis (founder of WP suspension and Intrax supension) designed a suspension and shock absorbers which brought him several world championships in various disciplines in motocross, motorcycle road racing, enduro, mountain bikes and various Formula classes, such as F3000 and Formula 1. Henk himself is an active driver. In 2008, he became champion in the ‘Dutch Supercar Challenge’ with a Porsche 997 GT3, equipped with the ‘Black Titan 4-Way’ shock absorbers.

Toward the end of his White Power Suspensions era, Henk became increasingly interested in and passionate about car chassis. His involvement in the F1 world championships of Benetton and Michael Schumacher, combined with the car racing Henk still took part in at that time, made him decide to start up a new business that would focus on ‘high-end’ car chassis technology. This marked the beginning of ‘Intrax Racing’.

More than 40 years of intensive developments produced a wide range of shock absorbers, height-adjustable screw sets, adjustable shock absorbers and complete car chassis. Of course, shock absorbers can be fitted by Intrax, too, and the car will then be aligned and weighted based on our extensive experience in motor sport. A special division of Intrax builds complete street, track-day, race and rally cars on customer order, for every budget and on every level. Intrax supports, runs and coordinates various race car ‘cups’, off-road races, solar races, autocross competitions, oval races, etc. All this, of course, in addition to developing shock absorbers for street cars, industrial purposes and for tasks which even we did not know shock absorbers were used for.
