Finnentrop. The Eibach Group is pleased to announce Max Kruse Racing as an extraordinary new cooperation partner. The motorsport team founded by the German international football player Max Kruse will compete in the ADAC GT Masters with a Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR. The cooperation strengthens both partners through the exclusive use of Eibach Race Springs in the competition car.
Max Kruse Racing was able to secure Benny Leuchter as the driver for the 2018 season. Leuchter started in 2016 in the ADAC TCR Germany and last year won the VLN Endurance Championship in the TCR class and the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring in a Golf GTI. In addition to racing events, Max Kruse Racing also offers driving safety training for companies. "Professional footballers in particular often drive fast cars without being able to control them in borderline situations. With our training offer we wish to provide an impetus for responsible driving," explains Max Kruse.
The combination of serious racing ambitions with the support of responsible vehicle handling makes Max Kruse Racing and Eibach ideal partners. Eibach's high-quality suspension components are known for their ability to guarantee optimum performance both on the world's race tracks and in everyday use. In recent years, Eibach has become the world's leading provider of race springs which can be found in practically every conceivable automotive motorsport series. Eibach can guarantee extraordinarily high and consistent quality in conjunction with the highest linearity and the tightest tolerances, especially due to high volumes and quasi-series production, even in the racing sector. Thanks to decades of manufacturing experience, Eibach products can thus surpass performance levels that were unthinkable only a few years ago. This explains the continuing popularity and dominance of Eibach products in professional racing. For example, Eibach recently dominated the top ten in the overall standings at the 2018 24-hour race at the Nürburgring with 9 vehicles using Eibach Race Springs.
"We wish Max Kruse Racing all the best and look forward to a successful cooperation. As always, we will do our best to make Max Kruse Racing an established name in the racing business," says Eibach Motorsport Manager Stephan Stöcker.
