Octopus Grip was developed in 2008 by Michael Ciccotelli after the inception of his Hillclimb Intensekart – a purpose built car designed within a specific budget. Michael wanted the ongoing running costs of the Intensekart to reflect the concept of an economical racer that could be competitive against more expensive competitor machines. One of the critical factors in reducing the ongoing costs was the tyres; they needed to last as long as they possible. After working directly with an Industrial Chemist, Michael developed Octopus Grip.

Octopus Grip was specially designed to reduce the ongoing running costs of motorsports while improving racing performance. Developed by an Industrial Chemist to Australian Standards Octopus Grip can help give you the edge in your sport...

Octopus Grip is simple and easy to use:

  • A few days prior to your race, ensure tyres are clean and scuffed
  • Apply Octopus Grip with a clean paint brush.
  • Wrap in industrial grade plastic wrap. Simple!

Depending on the condition of your tyres, a second coat maybe required. A good guide is if the first coat absorbs into the tyre within 5 minutes, it is recommended to apply a second coat.

Tips for Weekend Racing

If you event is for more than one day, apply Octopus Grip at the end of first days racing but DO NOT wrap tyres - this allows residue to evaporate over night.

Older Tyres

Some older tyres may need a few treatments and usage before optimum results are gained – the hardened outer layer must be penetrated.
