Bosch becomes partner of the Japanese racing series SUPER GT.
In a time of globalization, it’s important to look around and see the bigger picture. Bosch is extending its motorsport activities to the Far East and reaching new audiences as partner of the Japanese SUPER GT500 series. We also provide the teams and manufacturers with parts and our engineering expertise.
A look at the tenacity of a SUPER GT racing driver.
Many different things pose a challenge to modern racing drivers. Let’s take a glimpse into their perspective.
Strong centrifugal forces and vibrations push drivers to the limit during the race. Naturally, they must stay in good physical condition and keep a tight fitness schedule to endure these forces.
SUPER GT races can be very long—as a result, regulations require that each car is driven by at least 2 drivers who share the driving duty. Did you know? The color of the light on the upper left corner of the front windshield shows which driver is driving.
Helmets are the primary protective gear of a driver as well as a HANS (Head and Neck Support) device. This disperses the impact on the head and neck across the whole shoulder. Inside the car, safety belts are a crucial lifesaver. SUPER GT drivers are tightly strapped into the cockpit by a six-point harness: two shoulder straps, two pelvic straps and two leg straps.
“In motorsports, the first to cross the line is not always the only winner. Winners are also those who take risks and successfully test new technologies.”
– Dr. Klaus Böttcher, Director Bosch Motorsport at Bosch Engineering GmbH
