Rewarding time for firm after role in NASCAR victory.

A V8 cylinder block made in Shropshire for General Motors first purpose-built NASCAR racing engine has won the UK's Casting of the Year Award 2010.

Cast in Compacted Graphite Iron by Grainger & Worrall the thin-walled cast-t ing won the award for a combination of technical achievement, and the role the component has played in the NASCAR championship.

"Winning the UK Casting of the Year Award is an affirmation of the hard work that has gone into this component," ex-x plained Keith Denholm of Grainger & Worrall.

"At every stage of its development it has challenged the team, from material to casting, measurement to performance, tooling to consistency, the requirements of the project were met and resolved.

"It is a component of which we are justly proud and to receive this award is a recognition from the UK foundry industry of what we have achieved."
