Macs USA Tie Downs
BATT Racing-Andrew & Alison Turner
In 2010 I decided to progress a 'ramp truck' project that I had been considering for some time. Macs Speed undertook a large amount of the fabrication work and shortly before completion the issue of load security was discussed with Graeme McNeill. The Macs USA tie down range was new to NZ and the Ultra Pack was purchased as it offered good flexibility for securing the various vehicles that were likely to travel on the truck. The ramp truck was first displayed at the 2011 CRC Speedshow
and securely transported the restored 1936 Ford Roadster on the back.We have subsequently hauled a range of vehicles all without incident over the North Island with the confidence of Macs tie downs securing the loads. Steve Keys, L.V.V.T.A.
At BATT Racing we chose the Macs tie down with the ratchet plus twisted snap hook option which provided us with the flexibility to transport the car in our covered truck or race trailer.The snap hooks make connecting to lashing points at various locations and angles simple combined with the wheel straps makes securing vehicles easy. The strap wraps in the Ultra kit are a great idea for tidying the excess strap.

Stoping you right there before you get too far along with the name of the team. Team driver Kerri Mareeba has an interest in both horses and rotary powered cars so purchased a horse truck and made it work for both interests.
"Got to try out the tie-downs and d-rings properly on the trip from Wellington to Manfeild and back. Everything was easy-to-use and much quicker than stuffing around with the regular tie-downs I had been using previously."
