Acid test for MEYLE brakes: Antonio Albacete, runner-up in the European truck racing championship, relies on MEYLE spare parts
Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG has been supporting the team of Spanish truck racer, Antonio Albacete, since the beginning of the season in May 2014 with its brake discs and pads for commercial vehicles. He was racing go-karts at the age of 14 and two years later he turned to cars. After a successful career, Albacete changed to truck racing in 1997. He has been champion three times, runner-up five times and twice team champion in the FIA Truck Racing European Championship with his CEPSA-MAN team. This season too, equipped with MEYLE brakes, Albacete is on track to win the championship again. In the interview, Albacete and Sven Nielsen, Technology Manager at Wulf Gaertner Autoparts, talk about their collaboration and explain the special demands made on the brakes used in the truck.
