Ray’s Engineering has been at the forefront of the world’s highest-level motorsports such as Formula 1 and GT1 World Championships.
Victory is not the sole reason Ray’s takes part in car racing. The most important thing is to prove the efficacy of their wheels through such victories, while at the same time gaining the experience and know-how that can only be acquired by participating in car races.
Aside from participating in races, Ray’s Engineering also has a few brands under its belt to cater to us automotive enthusiast who want our cars to look better and extract every bit of performance by opting for performance wheels.
At wheel development sites nowadays, the boundary between computer-based tests and field tests is almost non-existent, with the former delivering almost identical results to the latter.
Ray’s applies this concept to all its wheels. The know-how required to make wheels lighter and stronger can also be leveraged in the manufacture of forged wheels and cast sport wheels, both of which are celebrated for their high performance, as well as the dress-up wheels that decorate a sports car, a sedan, even minivans. Ray’s has stuck resolutely to in-house development and production and, unlike most manufacturers outsourcing other countries, Ray’s wants the production of their wheels to be exclusive in Japan.
The VOLK RACING wheel brand represents the benchmark for forged sport wheels that leverage racing technology. The lightness and strength of Volk wheels have been attained by applying the latest analytic technologies.
Using the clean silhouette and lack of ostentation of its Volk Racing wheels as a weapon, Ray’s envisions to fit them on all high-performance cars throughout the world.
Volk Racing is the gold standard of high-end forged wheels. They're well known for being incredibly lightweight and extremely strong, thanks to their unique forging process. Their mold-form forging process works by creating the shape of the wheel during the forging process, which allows the grain of the metal to flow with the shape of the wheel. The end result is a wheel that has much greater strength.
Volk Racing Wheels are used by race teams from Nissan, Honda, Toyota, and Mazda in iconic events like Super GT, Japanese Touring Car Championship (JTCC), British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), Formula Nippon, Formula D and Formula One. They are also widely used by enthusiasts and grassroots racers all over the world.
For more than 2 decades now, Volk Racing has offered some of the best – if not the best – wheels on the aftermarket. As they continue to innovate and push the envelope forward, they set new trends and manufacturing processes. Whether you need wheels for your daily driver or your track toy, Volk Racing by Rays Engineering has something for you!
