PWR Innovates with a world-first F1 Cooling Technology system in a Trophy Truck. 

PWR Advanced Cooling Technology has again ‘Engineered the Unfair Advantage’, this time in the off-road arena with Paul Weel & Toby Price’s Team Australia Trophy Truck. 

As Technological Partners of the Off-Road Team, PWR created a world first integration of F1 cooling technology into Team Australia’s custom built 1100 horsepower Mason Motorsports Trophy Truck. 

Using light-weight and robust component geometries designed for F1 and Aerospace applications these Bar and Plate coolers for water and oil cooling systems utilize the latest technology heat exchange fin designs on both ambient and fluid side to minimize weight and maximize heat transfer. PWR’s Bar and Plate designs offer unparalleled levels of durability, protecting the cooling from damage due to debris or environmental stresses in extreme applications. PWR specializes in designing, manufacturing and testing custom thermal solutions that integrate with the vehicles design to exploit packaging and performance gains.

Following a ‘shakedown’ testing session ahead of the Baja 1000, Neil Mason of Mason Motorsport said, “the oil cooler was over 50 degrees cooler than before and the water cooler ran 10 degrees cooler, it’s beyond impressive!”

The Baja 1000, one of the most iconic off-road races on the planet, took place from November 16-18, and as a peninsula run, the race stretched 1310 miles (2108 kilometers).The race, known for its treacherous terrain, unpredictable conditions, and breathtaking scenery, provides the ultimate challenge for competitors. Team Australia’s Toby Price, two-time Dakar Rally Winner, & Paul Weel, ex-V8 Supercars & Stadium Super Truck Driver were joined by the legendary Larry Roeseler, a name synonymous with Baja 1000 glory as a six-time winner of the race. 

The #43 Car had a rocky start to the run from La Paz to Ensenada, with a jack issue costing them an hour while trying to change an early flat during Weel’s stint. They then battled through the remainder of the near-1300 mile run, Roeseler taking over at the 300-mile mark before three-time Dakar winner Price went from 790 miles to the finish.Team Australia finished 7th in class and 9th overall, a mighty effort from the crew despite an early loss of time.
