Nothing succeeds like success! NGK Spark Plugs Canada has a history rich in the Canadian racing fraternity, as well as around the world... F1, IRL, NASCAR, CASCAR, IHRA, NHRA, ALSTAR, and WESCAR just to name a few. This past year NGK celebrated 150 Formula One victories, more than any other spark plug company, bar none.
With drivers reaching speeds up to 360 km/h and engines revving at 19,000 RPM, Formula One is the highest tier of FIA sanctioned, open wheel racing. One of our most significant achievements is that NGK provided the Ferrari Formula 1 team with the spark plugs to win several world championships. We're also proud that we've helped some great Canadian drivers like National Champion Don Thompson Jr. achieve success year-after-year in the CASCAR Super Series, and racing legend Steve Robblee in the coveted CARQUEST series!
Let's not forget about the Atchison Racing team in the IHRA as well. These great Funny Car Canadians completely dominated the 1/4 mile this past season, proudly greeting the checkered flag and picking up the IHRA top alcohol Championship Trophy!
On local race tracks from coast to coast, at the Indy 500, at the Monaco Grand Prix, and even at a 40-below snowmobile rally in Nunavut -- wherever people are racing machines and finding the need for speed -- NGK is there helping Canadian racers take their well-earned place in the winner's circle.
