We mentioned a couple of weeks back that we had undertaken a survey to identify consumer awareness and attitudes to battery charging. As well as measuring these important points, our survey also focused on consumer awareness and experience of the CTEK range of Smart chargers.
78% of those surveyed owned a battery charger and in 51% of cases it was a CTEK charger. The figure that we are really proud of however is that 92% of those surveyed associated the words quality and reliability with the CTEK brand, which we feel is testament to the unique multi-stage charging characteristics incorporated across our entire range of smart chargers.
The new generation of CTEK Smart battery chargers take a safe, simple, intelligent approach to comprehensive battery maintenance that is fast, effective, easy to use and most importantly won’t let you down.
Our chargers offer a unique multi step-approach to battery care, that are simple to use and will ensure that any lead-acid battery is optimally conditioned and charged.

Honda Racing Team’s challenge for the 2011 championship will once again be spearheaded by a winning partnership of drivers – twice former titleholder Matt Neal and Gordon ‘Flash’ Shedden. Both were in contention for the Driver’s title heading into the final round of 2010, and eventually finished second and third respectively. Each gained five wins and a total of 22 podiums, securing the Team and Manufacturer trophies for Honda.
After the three races, racers Matt Neal and ‘Flash’ Gordon Shedden have shared a win apiece in the opening two races before a fifth and sixth place in race three. It meant that both drivers were the biggest scorers from the weekend. Neal now leads the race for the drivers’ crown with Shedden in fifth, while the Honda Racing Team leads the teams’ championship.
Honda and Team Dynamics sit on top of the Manufacturers’ and Constructors’ championship as well. “I am over the moon,” said Neal. “Considering that we were told to run with less power by the series officials before we came to this meeting, a win for Flash and a win for me is amazing. It is perfect for the team.”
