Bilstein Suspension vs. Time Attack
BILSTEIN has confirmed a sponsorship agreement to join the Time Attack® Championship as the Official Suspension Supplier for the next 3 years. As one of the largest suspension suppliers in the world and famed for its manufacture of tuning and racing suspension up to the highest level of the sport – including notorious events such as the Nurburgring 24hrs – it firmly enters the world of Time Attack® with the full intention of integrating its technology and resources into the some of the world’s fastest Time Attack® cars over the coming 3 years.
In addition to its impressive motorsport CV, BILSTEIN is also the OE technical resource for many of the world’s finest automotive manufacturers, ranging from Porsche, Jaguar and Bugatti through to Mercedes and Land Rover. BILSTEIN also has a purpose-built technical centre and workshops in the UK, where it designs and engineers bespoke solutions for many of Europe’s leading race teams and tuners.
Commenting on the three year deal, BILSTEIN UK Aftermarket Sales Manager Aaron Quilter said, “Time Attack is the perfect platform for the BILSTEIN brand. These are the fastest and most technically advanced ‘Tin Top’ cars in Europe, and this series is the ultimate proving ground for the very best in engineering. With access to our race engineers and our state-of-the-art R&D facilities, we also think that a few competitors might switch to either our ClubSport or MDS systems to gain a competitive advantage.
In a sport where hundredths of a second make the difference between victory and defeat, we’re confident that we can help competitors to get the very best from their cars.”
Andy Barnes of Time Attack® said ‘’The positive and growing future of Time Attack® is always compounded when you see global brands taking note and getting involved. This year is shaping up to be the finest in the history of our organisation therefore to say that we are pleased to welcome BILSTEIN coming on board is an understatement.
Having visited some of their facilities in recent months, it is clear that the technology and quality they possess will be hugely advantageous to our teams and drivers. I fully anticipate that their suspension will become the must-have over the next 3 years as we all work together to make each class of Time Attack® car quicker and faster.’’
