Hi All,

Today we are very pleased to announce a brand new product from Works Bell called the "Rapfix GTC Hybrid".

It is a tilting quick release which is compatible with both standard Momo bolt pattern and Nardi bolt steering wheels, but which features the glove friendly release handle of the competition version Rapfix GTC-R as seen on Morris & Ingall's V8 at Phillip Island and Bathurst.

Previously the Rapfix GTC was available in two versions ...
the 6-bolt roadcar style steering wheel compatible GTC model, and
the 3 bolt competition style steering wheel compatible GTC-R model.

This is the competition version 3 bolt competition style steering wheel compatible GTC-R model ...

And this is the 6-bolt roadcar style steering wheel compatible GTC model ...

The GTC and GTC-R had different release handle designs, and The Tuners Group's racing customers specifically asked us if a version of the GTC could be made available which would be compatible with 6 bolt road car style steering wheels and bosses, but with the glove friendly release handle of the GTC-R competition version.

So we set to work with Works Bell on this new product, which is now available !

The result is the brand new Rapfix GTC Hybrid ...

It features the glove friendly release handle of the competition version GTC-R, but is compatible with 6 bolt road car style steering wheels (in both Momo and Nardi standard bolt pattern).

The machining on the release handle is amazing ...

And of course it includes contacts for the horn, so your horn still works ...

So now you can get the best of both worlds - a quick release that bolts straight to your road car style steering boss / hub and can use 6 bolt steering wheels, but which also features a glove friendly release handle.

It is ideal for both track day cars, and any race car which uses a 6 bolt road car style steering wheel.

Apart from making it much easier to get in and out of your car in normal conditions, in the event of an accident it also has an added safety benefit of being able to get out of your car quickly, without being hindered by a non-tilting or non-detachable steering wheel.
