CARBON REVOLUTION WHEELS SUPPORT LAP RECORDS AT NURBURGRING AND HOCKENHEIM
01 June 2019
Carbon Revolution wheels continue to make a difference where it counts, with two vehicles recently establishing new lap records while sporting the company’s carbon fibre wheels.
The Ferrari 488 Pista, unveiled just over a year ago, set a production car lap record at Hockenheim on 14 June 2019. The Pista dismissed the previous record-holder, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, with a time that was more than a second faster. Sport Auto Magazine test driver Christian Gebhardt took 1:45.9 to complete the 16-turn German Grand Prix track.
This comes on the back of a new officially recognised record for the Renault Megane R.S. Trophy-R in the compact production car segment on 5 April, 2019. That record was established on the historic Nordschleife at the Nürburgring. The Megane demolished the 20.6km course in 07’40’’100, and the official whole lap length of the Nordschleife’s 20.832km in 07’45’’389.
Carbon Revolution CEO Jake Dingle said, “We have built trusted relationships with key customers such as Ferrari and Renault over time. We are proud that our collaborative approach helps us tailor products to our clients’ requirements, so they can deliver outstanding products to the market. We congratulate both Ferrari and Renault on these recent records and look forward to seeing both companies continue to succeed on and off the track,” he said.
