Joining forces in 2018: MEYLE and DRIFT UNITED
The DRIFT UNITED racing series will be kicking off a new season on the upcoming weekend. As a new main sponsor, the Hamburg-based spare parts manufacturer Meyle will be supporting racing events in the drift segment this year, beginning with the first race. Established in 2011, DRIFT UNITED offers visitors spectacular events with amazing drift courses and thrilling races.
In addition to sponsorship, the season will also be focusing on the continuous exchange and sharing of expertise between the MEYLE engineers and the DRIFT UNITED participants. By analysing the performance of the automotive parts in extreme conditions, the Hamburg-based manufacturer can also acquire valuable knowledge for further development of products. After all, the vehicles and parts need to deliver top drifting performance: unlike driving on conventional bends, drifting requires top performance from all the suspension parts, whilst the automotive parts need to be able to withstand excessive strain.
