BATTLE FOR FIRST PLACE

BATTLE FOR FIRST PLACE


“The tough competition within the sport of racing and the uncompromising quality demands of the European champions offer the best environment in which to put PE quality to the test,” says Christian Freitag, managing director of PE Automotive.

The 2014 racing season saw PE entering into a technical partnership with the defending European championship team, Truck Sport Bernau. This year, the team is being represented by Ellen Lohr.
 
The racing trucks are fitted with, among other things, brake discs, steering parts, compressed-air cylinders and chassis parts from the PE series production.

According to Volker Schmidt, head of development and construction at Truck Sport Bernau: “With PE, we have found a technology partner that understands our requirements and delivers the quality that we need to fight for first place.”

A clear "Super" from Ellen Lohr for the brake performance of the PE products

“Since season 2015 of the European Truck Racing Championship I use PE brake discs and pads. And I am absolutely enthused. It is my overall fifth year in Truck Racing now and I never had a brake-system as good as this. Why? Because PE brakes keep the temperature perfectly constant from start to finish and in the same time they keep the performance high. And that is certainly perfect. Super!“

COOL DESPITE 600°C IN THE SHADE

The intensive cooperation between racing teams and PE developers, over the last few years, has enabled individually produced products, for example, a wheel nut optimised for race use and capable of withstanding the forces of a collision as well as enabling quick removal during the face. Teams in the FIA European Truck Racing Championship will be using this special development in the 2016 race season.




Success with PE products

Brake discs are exposed to extremely high forces on the race track. During the race, the brakes are heated to temperatures of up to 600 ℃ and must constantly be cooled with cold water. For this reason, the design, the manufacturing quality and the material specification of the brake disc are all essential to ensure that the disc neither breaks during the race, nor does it constantly need replacing.

THE 2016 SEASON

We are looking forward to wonderfully interesting season 2016 with a successfully set-up: Truck Sport Lutz Bernau and PE.
