The VLN / RCN Team Adrenalin Pixum Motorsport has been a permanent KW development partner again since 2019. The BMW E90 with the number # 1 and all other E90s of the team start on KW Competition 3A EXR suspension. The performance was immediately at the best level after only a short development time and height-adjustable standpipes are also used on the front axle.
The team's own Renault R.S. 01 GT3 celebrated its first outings on the world-famous Nürburgring Nordschleife in the hands of the GTronix 360 ° Team mcchip-dkr. On this vehicle, the 4A damper was used for the first time on both axles and was fully developed. A new 3A EXR chassis was developed for the Porsche Cayman in the 2019 season, which was able to significantly reduce lap times. From 2019, in addition to the Porsche Cayman 981, a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO will be used in the VLN, here too the GTronix 360 ° team relies on the 4A chassis from KW. On this vehicle, the spring rates from the Lamborghini / Audi platform were able to be reduced considerably, thereby improving drivability and reducing tire wear.
Team 75 Bernhard
In 2010 the "Rally Team75" was formed for the first time in the German rally scene with Timo Bernhard as driver. After numerous successes and overall rally victories, including with the Porsche 911 GT3, the decision was made to enter the 2013 Porsche Carrera Cup Germany as TEAM75. In the meantime, the Porsche 911 GT3R has been represented in the ADAC GT Masters and in the Blancpain Endurance Series for 3 years, and of course the vehicles are all on KW dampers.
