Renishaw will be showing its ongoing support for Land Rover BAR, the British Challenger for the 35th America’s Cup at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in Portsmouth between July 22-24th. As an official supplier to Land Rover BAR and a Technical Innovation Group Member, Renishaw will be a guest exhibitor in the Tech Zone within the Race Village.

Renishaw will exhibit a series of additively manufactured parts including a manifold designed especially for the Land Rover BAR team and produced on a Renishaw Additive Manufacturing machine. Also available to see on the stand will be a pair of additively manufactured nose cones used in the BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car, which will attempt to break the land speed record in autumn 2017.

“Renishaw has been working closely with the Land Rover BAR Technical Innovation Group to bring the oldest international sporting trophy in the world to Britain for the first time since 1851,” stated Chris Pockett, Head of Communications of Renishaw. “It is a real delight to see the best in British design, technology and innovation working together to bring the cup home.”

The Land Rover BAR Team Principal and skipper is Ben Ainslie, who has won four Olympic gold medals for sailing. The Land Rover BAR team currently sits in second place behind the Emirates team New Zealand and hopes to defend its previous Portsmouth win in the first event of the series.

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Series is part of the sailing programme for the 35th America’s Cup that ends in Bermuda in 2017. The competition features world-class sailors on AC45f catamarans. The six teams competing are Artemis Racing, Landrover BAR, Emirates Team New Zealand, Oracle Team USA, Groupama Team France and SoftBank Team Japan.
