About Us w

AKA Derby Ltd has been trading many years as both a bodyshop and truck/coach conversion specialist, mainly known in the world of Briscar F1 for its work, and also as a specialist painter, refinishing trucks and trailers for many top motorsport teams.
A chance meeting between its current owners, Steve and Adam, started to revitalize the business late in 2009, leading to the launch of AKA Racetransporters in 2011.
Steve has worked on all aspects of specialized coachbuilding and high end bodywork repair and refurbishment, and he also competes in the competive world of Briscar F1 in his spare time. Being involved directly in motorsport helps him to understand his customers ideas and expectations, and he has the knowledge and expertise to turn these ideas into reality.
Adam has worked all his life in haulage and has competed in various motorsport, both on 2 wheels and four. In 2009 he decided to race a BMW M3 in the CSL Cup, and after failing to find a suitable race transporter at a reasonable cost, he came across AKA Derby and promptly commissioned Steve to build one from scratch.
There was so much interest in that first Scania that Adam and Steve felt there was a gap in the market f, so AKA Racetransporters was born.
We specialize in the supply and full build of rigid trucks from 7.5t gross trucks up to tri-axle 45ft trailers, using our combined many years experience in the haulage and coachbuilding industry to source and build the right truck at the right price. Not everyone can afford or have the space for a 45ft race trailer, as well as the extra difficulties the bigger trucks bring,  so larger rigid trucks are the only option for many people.
Speccing a truck to your individual tastes can often be costly and confusing. We don’t believe in this approach, and whilst we can certainly quote for a bespoke build, we believe we know what most customers will require, at least for a starting point, so we are able to give a base cost for our conversions complimented with our unique pricing menu for any extras you may require.
Often, it will be more cost effective to build your own perfect truck from scratch rather than purchasing a used racetruck which may or may not meet all of your requirements!
We offer a complete service that can include sourcing and purchasing the right truck to use as a good base for a conversion. By choice we will always advise customers to use Scanias for larger trucks and Mercedes Ategos for the 7.5t range, due to the reliability and degree of comfort these trucks offer as standard. We can also convert a truck supplied by yourself, or even modify an existing racetruck to better suit your needs.
We normally have numerous trucks in various stages of conversion at our workshop for potential customers to inspect, and we will also have a Scania demonstration vehicle with virtually every extra available for viewing from April 2011
AKA Racetransporters aim to provide a complete service to our customers, which apart from building your truck, includes help and advice about current VOSA regulations, assistance in getting an HGV licence if required, and, uniquely, providing breakdown, MOT and servicing solutions for our customers on an ongoing basis.
So whatever type of Motorsport you are involved in, Motorcross, Road racing, Go Karting, or any type of car racing, we will be able to build and maintain you a truck to suit your needs. .
