The company will be the ‘control’ supplier of oil, air, and fuel filters

Ryco has been named as the ‘Official Filtration Partner’ of the Repco Supercars Championship after working closely with the category to develop an advanced range of oil, air, and fuel filters to suit its new Gen3 race cars, which are set to debut in 2023.
The new ‘Control Parts’ will feature in all participating race cars and follows months of development and testing by Ryco in partnership with Supercars, engine builders, and race teams.
Development of the range is in direct response to the transition to the Gen3 platform, a move that aims to significantly reduce competition costs, mostly by using more affordable engines with longer maintenance intervals while still maintaining performance.
Ryco explains that its unique Supercar filtration solution breaks the traditional view that fine-particle filtration must come with a compromise to flow restriction and engine performance.
A key to Ryco’s new filters is its “never-seen-before in racing” media, with the company collaborating globally with its suppliers to identify latest technology filter media.
The oil filter features a unique 100 percent synthetic media for fine-micron filtration that replaces the traditional cellulose-based examples. For the fuel filter, rolled element fine-micron media is used, rather than course particle pleated metal screens. And finally, the air filter employs a hydrophobic nano-fibre coated media with unique honeycomb construction.
To prove the feasibility of these combinations under racing conditions, prototypes of each were extensively evaluated in Ryco’s laboratory, as well as in current Supercars race cars and the Gen3 Mustang and Camaro prototypes.

Supercars engine builder and owner of Herrod Performance Engines, Rob Herrod, was impressed by the new suite of Ryco filters.
“Ryco stepping up to the mark and getting involved in this program has been an absolute benefit to this whole Gen3 engine program for us at Herrod Performance Engines,” Rob said.
“Not just in oil filtration – air and fuel filtration were also required, and Ryco has come in leaps and bounds and given us the products we need.”
“Ryco’s innovative, world-first filtration technology will enable the Gen3 series the best chance of ensuring engine mileage and as a result will significantly improve sustained race performance for teams,” Supercars’ experienced Head of Motorsport, Adrian Burgess, said.
Ryco’s Executive General Manager, Stuart Chandler, said the company was delighted to have further cemented its relationship with Supercars.
“I am extremely excited by our new partnership with Supercars as the ‘Official Filtration Partner’ of the category through being the ‘control’ supplier of oil, air, and fuel filters. In addition, this partnership cements Ryco Filters as the premium motorsport filter brand in Australian and New Zealand,” Stuart said.
