Panoz Motor Sport's race team shop
One of the most successful teams on today's international racing circuit, Panoz Motor Sports is known for developing advanced performance technologies and using the highest-quality equipment. So when they set out to build a new, 12,000 sq. ft. design, maintenance and testing facility, they went at it with their characteristic commitment to operational excellence and performance - especially when it came to selecting their workspace and storage equipment.
To this team, a winning workspace and storage solution is one that offers high durability, enhances the look of the working environment, and is flexible enough to accommodate the unique needs of the facility's various departments and functions. One company gave them exactly what they want: Lista.
Best qualification from garage to pits.
Lista's wide range of modular drawer storage cabinets, Storage WallÂ® systems, modular workbenches and other products are designed for flexibility, enabling the team to meet the specific requirements of each department.
For example, cabinets are used as room partitions to divide the workshop area into three specialized bays. Equipped with rugged butcher block counter tops, they create a space-saving storage system and functional, U-shaped work area. All the aircraft-quality hardware used to assemble and disassemble the race cars is safely stored in the cabinet drawers in organized, customized compartments.
In the electronics departments, Lista cabinets with double-hinged doors protect mechanical fasteners and component parts from dust and debris.
In the parts department, where floor space is at a premium, Lista's shallow-depth Storage Wall system provides unobtrusive, high-density storage. By taking advantage of the Storage Wall's combination of modular drawers, shelves and roll-out trays, the Panoz team can store an array of large and small items easily in one place, including all suspension parts, uprights, bearings and drive shafts. Lista also designed a row of cabinets with a continuous butcher block counter top to function as a service counter.
In the pit area, six mobile drawer storage cabinets house all the small parts needed for vehicle repairs and maintenance during a race.
"On and off the road," says Panoz team manager, John Eversley, "the Lista workspace system has met all of our expectations. The system is flexible, durable, aesthetically pleasing and of superior quality."
