HAMBURG, Germany — MEYLE has a long-running connection to motorsport, as it plays a key role in product development, in particular as a test ground under real-life conditions.
The Hamburg spare-parts – including braking-system components — manufacturer will continue its sponsorship of the T3 Motorsport and SL Trucksport 30 teams for the coming season along with its support of Christian Riedemann in the German Rally Championship.
In addition to T3 Motorsport lining up in the ADAC GT Masters, the Dresden racing team is taking part in the DTM Trophy for the first time in an Audi R8 LMS GT4. Here, the drivers can count on the expertise of MEYLE’s engineers.
A special highlight for MEYLE is its continued support of the junior team in the Opel e-Rally for yet another season, as well as demonstrating that motorsport and sustainability can go hand in hand.
T3 Motorsport: MEYLE’s main commitment continues
MEYLE’s engineers are back on the starting grid again this year and will bring their knowledge and expertise from the race track to the company’s parts development unit. Every mile covered on the track generates valuable data that is essential for the continued development and optimisation of MEYLE’s product range.
MEYLE has already been collaborating with the Dresden-based T3 Motorsport team for many years. As in recent years, the collaboration with T3 Motorsport in the ADAC GT Masters is the main focus of the sponsorship efforts.
A first in the collaboration this year is the support of the Audi R8 LMS GT4 in the DTM Trophy. The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo will also line up in the ADAC GT Masters for T3 for the second year in a row. Both vehicles feature a striking, brand-new MEYLE design. The drivers are already in place: Max Paul remains brand ambassador for MEYLE and will be supported by none other than Lamborghini factory driver Marco Mapelli. Together, they will form a top-class duo, who will be hoping to claim lots of podium finishes for T3 in this year’s races.
André Huschke, Head of Product Management, Engineering & Data Management at MEYLE, is looking forward to the upcoming season.
“MEYLE’s experienced engineers will be on hand at the track to support the T3 Motorsport team, providing the optimum conditions for a perfectly tuned vehicle and paving the way for maximum performance,” said Huschke. To view the entire announcement, click HERE.
