Bcomp and Porsche customer racing team Four Motors

- sustainable collaboration is prolonged until 2021

Bcomp is proud to announce its prolonged collaboration with German Porsche customer racing team Four Motors. The team is successfully racing with Bcomp’s ampliTex and powerRibs natural fibre technologies on their Porsche GT3 Cup and Porsche GT4 CS MR in the NLS series and the legendary 24h race at the Nürburgring.

 

Four Motors were the first motorsport team in Germany that specialised in sustainability and constantly tests new technologies, from re-refined engine oil and E20 fuel to lightweight natural fibre bodywork – and are highly successful in doing so. The main goal is to support the development of technologies that reduce the CO2 footprint and that can be applied in road cars as well, thus significantly impacting the CO2 footprint of mobility. 

 

“We’ve only got one earth to live on – all of us. It is our responsibility and duty to take care of our planet for future generations. Therefore, Four Motors is highly committed in working intensively with its partners to develop and test new innovative technologies for a sustainable mobility,” explained Thomas von Löwis of Menar, CEO of Four Motors. 

 

He continued: “Like Four Motors, Bcomp is a pioneer in the field of sustainable motorsport – and the goal is to be competitive with those technologies. We not only share the Bcomp philosophy, but we also benefit from their know-how of the natural fibre materials and their engineering skills. Also, on the race track the bio lightweight components have proven to be exceptional and as good as lightweight parts from carbon fibre. The difference is: lightweight parts from natural fibres save 75% CO2 compared to the same parts made from carbon fibre.” 

 

“We are excited to collaborate with Four Motors” says Dr. Christian Fischer, Bcomp’s CEO, “It is a great team of passionate individuals with whom we both share values and high ambitions. They have been leading the way for many years and are doing a fantastic work in promoting and demonstrating sustainable technologies with the goal of inspiring solutions that will not only work for motorsports, but also make large scale mobility cleaner in the future. We are proud to partner with such a prestigious motorsports partner!”
