Race Awnings

Gala Performance is a company of racers. We only manufacture race awnings that we would use at the circuit ourselves, with the confidence that we're not only providing safety and comfort to our team, but reflecting the quality that you can expect from Gala Performance.

We designed and built our exclusive, heavyweight race awnings to handle the immense stresses and strains that equipment can be put under in a professional motorsport paddock. Whether you're covering an Audi R8 GT4 or a team of Sodikart Sigmas, the MQ-65 Race Awning is equipped to provide robust, customisable shelter for all.

What is a Race Awning?

A race awning is a strong frame-based structure used by race teams in a motorsport paddock to cover the vehicles when they are being worked upon between races or sessions. They are enclosed structures that provide privacy from crowds and competitors, although truckside awnings are often open at one end to allow vehicles to get in and out with ease.

These race awnings differ from our range of pop up motorsport gazebos in that they use the same industrial strength framework as pre-fab steel buildings, combined with a super-robust PVC covering. The covers are customisable to allow for team logos, sponsor branding, or on-brand colour schemes. They are supplied in four standard sizes, with curtain-rail sidewalls that allow openings wherever you require them.

Gala Performance does offer fully bespoke structures that include doors, windows and bespoke frame-shaping, so we recommend that you get in touch if you have something out of the ordinary in mind.

Robust aluminium race awning with thick PVC covers

The MQ-65 Race Awning is manufactured using an extremely robust T6061 aluminium in the framework, with up to 65mm wide posts (hence the name, MQ-65) in the legs and roof section. The thick, up-to-650gsm PVC of the customisable covers is wipe-clean, meaning it's fresh each time you unpack it at the race circuit, and the sidewalls fix to the framework using a thick Kador strip, which slides into the grooves of the posts. This means that the walls are taut at all times.

A great advancement in this race awning means that should you wish to open any side of the tent, you can simply unzip one wall from the next and open them using curtain-style clips at the top, attached to the eave of the frame. Make no mistake, this is a seriously heavyweight, professional race awning.

A Race Awning with clear span design

All of our freestanding race awnings use super-robust framework, whether they're small or large width tents.

This means that there are no obstructions in and around the awning, whether in the roof section or with supporting legs inside the structure.

We achieve this by using the highest quality T6061 aluminium extrusions, which are similar to the beams and posts you'll find in pre-fabricated buildings. We never compromise on the quality of our constructions.

Want a custom printed race awning, or a plain one?

Our race awnings are all fully manufactured to order, which means that you can have team or sponsor branding across any part of the tent. Want simple branding? We can do it. Want on-brand flashes of colour across the walls of your race awning? We can do it.

Equally, we understand that a simple, function white race awning is absolutely fine, as sponsors can change year on year, and some teams would rather keep it clean and simple.

However, as it's made to order, we offer different custom options to enable you to receive the perfect race awning for your needs, whether it's built to cover a team of mechanics around an LMP3 car or a group of VIPS in a hospitality setting. We can offer doorways, windows and any other customisation options you can think of. Just give our team a call on 01709 803457 and have a chat about your dream tent. We can deliver.

The alternative: Pop-up Race Awnings

Not every team needs a professional-level freestanding race awning, and therefore we offer a range of low-cost, smaller structures in our pop up race tents.

* 4 models available

* 5 sizes available

* 12 colours available

* Plain or printed race awnings delivered fast

* Can connect to each other to create a larger covered awning space

Race Awnings in a Nutshell

Gala Performance sells a range of professional standard, fully customisable race awnings, from small pop-up tents between 3m x 3m and 4m x 8m, up to professional-level, seriously robust aluminium structures with wipe-clean PVC covers between 4m x 6m and 6m x 12m.

What they all have in common is that they can be customised and printed to match your team's brand aspirations, and different customisation options are available if you chat with our team on 01709 803457 to discuss.

Be aware that as they are made to order to your specific requirements, the MQ-65 has a lead time of between 4-6 weeks. If you require a race awning with fast delivery time then we recommend that you explore the motorsport gazebos, which are the strongest pop up race awnings on the UK market.
