KYB Europe Aftermarket has launched a new website, dedicated to it’s motorsport activities: www.kybsport.com
KYB sponsors a number of teams in a variety of high profile motorsports around the world. This website brings those together in one place to present each team’s progress through the year. The sponsorships cover a diverse range of events, from fast-paced tough World Rallycross to endurance races such as the Asia Cross Country Rally and the speed of Super GT. By pushing ourselves to the limits of engineering, KYB can learn lessons and share new improved technology throughout KYB Corporation.
KYB Corporation has a team of dedicated motorsport engineers with a huge amount of experience in developing highly specialised products for use in racing. The demand for cutting edge components in this competitive environment requires world-class precision and quality. KYB Electronic Power Steering (EPS) systems are widely used in motorsports and particularly in endurance races such as the Le Mans 24 hour race. KYB suspension components are also trusted by a number of motorsport teams across a number of varied racing disciplines.
Teams featured on the KYB Sport website include APR Racing, EKS, Toyota Gazoo Racing, Goodsmile Racing, Team JAOS and Monster Energy RX Cartel. The website also features up to date news and blogs on the motorsport activities connected to KYB. “The new website is a great place for KYB to show off its high performance engineering” says Jordan Day, Marketing Manager KYB Europe, “ we want a place to show introduce our European customers the great teams we sponsor around the globe, as well as providing information on the KYB brand to the fans of these teams around the world.”
The launch of the new website could not be better timed, following the superb performance of Toyota Gazoo Racing in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring. TGR use KYB electronic power steering and suspension and saw both their cars completing the fearsome endurance race. The Lexus LC finished 1st in its class, the GR Supra finished 3rd in its class.
