Capka, the owner of Brisk, a truly unique racing car project has come about, which is based upon his own designs. The car is now ready to be tested in rallies both nationally and abroad. In addition, promotional events and test drives for journalists and the general public have been planned.

Brisk Tabor a.s. is one of the world's biggest spark plug manufacturers. Naturally, the company uses very high quality facilities when developing new products. These include a modern test bed equipped with engine braking for endurance testing of engines, a freezing chamber for load testing complete vehicles at low temperatures, and a special highly supercharged engine.

Another key element of the company is its strong team of designers and developers. In terms of components, a spark plug is of vital importance as it has a significant effect on the operation of an engine and its performance. Testing an intrinsic part like this directly within extreme conditions has proven to be absolutely necessary, and is an undertaking which is not possible without a close working relationship with racing teams.

Racing spark plugs have long been in production at Brisk. To begin with, Brisk started producing them for Lamborghini engines, TM Racing engines and many others. However, racing teams must stick to their schedules, meaning that engine testing has not always been an easy task. Fitting spark plugs to the finest engines for racing teams was just the first step, as our products' qualities and specifications have proven them capable of so much more. Lamborghinis fitted with our products have been victorious several times in succession in highly prestigious Formula 1 races, and this is certainly a glowing reference for the company. Cooperation with racing teams has resulted in numerous other success stories in all categories, giving the firm the impetus to progress ever further. As Ing. Capka, the owner of the company, says, "At Brisk, we have excellent technical facilities including design and development centres, and a testing plant for engines."

The idea for a Brisk racing team with its own test drivers was first mooted by Ing. Capka in 2005. It would be their responsibility to try engines out under various load conditions and external influences at the same time using mounted testing apparatus. It was clear that such a step would result in greater advances being made to our spark plugs. Soon afterwards, development engineers were put in charge of the project. While working on it, they reached the point of having to decide upon a suitable test vehicle to assess components on. All race categories have certain limitations that adhere to legal regulations, although these do not allow for the development of new spark plugs for the heaviest loads.

This was the year that marked the beginning of our collaboration with Prodrive, a company whose racing team Brisk supplied with spark plugs. It was around this time that a decision was made to concentrate efforts on rallying. Inspired, engineering staff in production came up with the notion of making our own engine. Their creativity and initiative was rewarded when, at the end of 2006, Ing. Capka took up their idea and enlarged it in scope. One thing led to another and soon the thrilling prospect of building a complete car to our own design was under discussion. The BRISK RS O1 WRC project had begun.

In a mere six months, the car has gone from concept to completion and now stands in front of you. This mobile testing laboratory boasts many complex technical features.
