Lane Motorsport, a division of Lane Electronics, is an assembling distributor for connector system manufacturer Souriau.

To support the Souriau 8STA offering, the company provides a comprehensive package of 8STA compatible heat-shrink boots made by HellermannTyton and accessories by Weald Electronics. These include nut plates, protective caps and gaskets – all designed to meet the often extreme environments found within the motorsport sector.

The company stocks HellermannTyton's standard boot, glue lined boots, high-temperature boots for fuel tank applications, both straight and right-angled variants and the popular VG950 twin pack epoxy used to glue standard boots.

Weald’s recently introduced lightweight caps – available in shell sizes from 01 to 24 in both receptacle and plug formats – are as much as 40% lighter than standard motorsport caps. Sealing is to IP67, and they are available with or without a lanyard.

Weald has redesigned the 8STA nut plates designed for shell sizes 01 to 24. To make them lighter, the company has profiled them to better mirror the shape of the connector flange while a new single flange nut plate saves even more weight. Their gaskets are available in high-temperature materials for shell sizes 01 to 24.
