MEYLE Performance: MEYLE continues its successful motorsport sponsorship and looks forward to an exciting race season in 2022

Hamburg, 13 April 2022. MEYLE has a long-running connection to motorsport, as it plays a key role in product development, in particular as a test ground under real-life conditions. The Hamburg manufacturer is delighted to continue its sponsorship of the T3 Motorsport and SL Trucksport 30 teams for the coming season along with its support of Christian Riedemann in the German Rally Championship. In addition to T3 Motorsport lining up in the ADAC GT Masters, the Dresden racing team is taking part in the DTM Trophy for the first time in an Audi R8 LMS GT4. Here, the drivers can count on the expertise of MEYLE’s engineers. A special highlight for MEYLE is its continued support of the junior team in the Opel e-Rally for yet another season, as well as demonstrating that motorsport and sustainability can go hand in hand. 

T3 Motorsport: MEYLE’s main commitment continues    
MEYLE’s engineers are back on the starting grid again this year and will bring their knowledge and expertise from the race track to the company’s parts development unit. Every mile covered on the track generates valuable data that is essential for the continued development and optimisation of MEYLE’s product range. MEYLE has already been collaborating with the Dresden-based T3 Motorsport team for many years. As in recent years, the collaboration with T3 Motorsport in the ADAC GT Masters is the main focus of the sponsorship efforts. A first in the collaboration this year is the support of the Audi R8 LMS GT4 in the DTM Trophy. The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo will also line up in the ADAC GT Masters for T3 for the second year in a row. Both vehicles feature a striking, brand-new MEYLE design. The drivers are already in place: Max Paul remains brand ambassador for MEYLE and will be supported by none other than Lamborghini factory driver Marco Mapelli. Together, they will form a top-class duo, who will be hoping to claim lots of podium finishes for T3 in this year’s races. André Huschke, Head of Product Management, Engineering & Data Management at MEYLE, is looking forward to the upcoming season: ‘MEYLE’s experienced engineers will be on hand at the track to support the T3 Motorsport team, providing the optimum conditions for a perfectly tuned vehicle and paving the way for maximum performance.’

SL Trucksport 30: Sascha Lenz back on the starting grid with his truck ‘Nala’
The FIA European Truck Racing Championship returned in 2021 after an enforced break due to the coronavirus. The sponsorship with Sascha Lenz continues again this year. Last season’s runner-up wants to build on the success of last year when he achieved several podium finishes, and he is well placed to do so with his truck ‘Nala’, featuring more than 15 MEYLE parts that are built to withstand the extreme demands of truck racing. 

DRM & ADAC Opel e-Rally: MEYLE has new drive technologies firmly in its sights        
After the success of last season, MEYLE continues its support of Christian Riedemann in the German Rally Championship. As a sponsorship partner of Christian Riedemann, MEYLE holds the junior team managed by the driver in high regard. The team will be competing in the ADAC Opel e-Rally in the coming season for the second time in a row. Last year, the inaugural season of the electric rally championship took place. MEYLE was right there, remaining true to the pioneering spirit of its company founder Wulf Gaertner, who, himself, was a passionate racing driver. André Huschke explains: ‘With our involvement in the Opel e-Rally, MEYLE is looking to continue this pioneering spirit by developing premium quality parts for new drive technologies through this collaboration and by supporting the connection between traditional motorsport and a more sustainable future in the best way possible.’
