Top results in off-road, racing and rallying
After a very short winter break all motorsport seasons have started, and already several Winmax customers could enjoy top results!
Dakar Rally : Top 10 finishers
One of the first major motorsport events is the Dakar Rally. The Overdrive Racing drivers are using the Winmax Brake Pads and several of them finished on a very rewarding place. Like Dutch driver Peter Van Merksteyn who finished 8th overall and Lucio Alvarez 10th overall and Team boss Jean-Marc Fortin comments : “It was once again a very hard and difficult Dakar but our drivers did an excellent job. Last summer we started testing with the Winmax Brake Pads and after a positive performance test we continued with endurance tests in Marrocco. The good data results and the positive comments of our test drivers convinced us to go to Dakar with Winmax Brake Pads on our cars. And now after our Dakar results we know we can continue with Winmax on all our cars in all the other off-road rallies we will do!”
Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12h : Victory in Class C
The famous orange BMW M4 of Boat Racing with drivers Seton/Brabham/Longhurst, won the Class C in the legendary Bathurst 12 race in the beginning of February. Using a Winmax endurance compound on their BMW, they were able to do the whole race with the same pads. Not only the performance stayed stable all through the race, but also the pad and disc wear was very good.
Haspengouw rally : Princen with Skoda R5 to the victory!
Another victory, this time in rally, was for vice-Belgian champion Kris Princen. With his Skoda Fabia R5 from the BMA team, he had a great fight with reigning champion Vincent Verschueren in the first round of the Belgian Rally Championship. Finally it was Princen, using the Winmax Brake pads already since last year, who won the rally. Kris Princen : “This year we have scheduled to do only 6 rallies of the 9 on the program. So we have to try to score every rally. Luckily I can always count on the Winmax Brake pads who have given me last week-end again, great satisfaction. I can break very late and not block the wheels. A real safe feeling.”
Mats Van den Brand strong performance and class win
Dutch driver Mats Van den Brand also came to the Belgian Haspengouwrally. He finished with his historic BMW M3 E30 on a very promising 9th overall and 1st in his class! A strong performance by the young Van den Brand which puts him in the lead of the M-cup. Van de Brand : “The car was working perfectly and as always the Winmax pads did again a perfect job! I am really happy with this result because with 4 stages to go, I burned my both hands during a technical intervention at the service. I suffered a lot but kept on going. It was very rewarding to finish is such a good position.”
The Winmax Brake Pads have seriously contributed to all these excellent results, and they will continue to do so in the future. Rallying, Racing, Off-Road, whatever discipline, Winmax has the pad to win!
