Bilstein expands sponsorship of off-road racing series

Building on a successful 2016 racing season which saw Bilstein equipped vehicles take championships in both the Pro Buggy and Pro-Lite classes, thyssenkrupp Bilstein of America has announced it is expanding into the highly competitive Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) Pro 2 and Pro 4 classes.

"Involvement in LOORRS has given us the opportunity to showcase Bilstein's quality, design, ruggedness, performance and superior tuning capabilities," said Regis Finn, marketing manager. "Our involvement in off-road racing dates back to the early 1970's and the name Bilstein has been synonymous with off-road championships for more than 45 years."

For the 2017 racing season, all sponsored racers will be running Bilstein M 9200 (Coilover) and M 9200 (Bypass) shock absorbers (with the exception of the Mod Kart class). The 2017 Bilstein Race Team includes: Mod Kart: Cole Keats/ Pro Buggy: Darren Hardesty (2016 Class Champion) Pro Lite: Jerett Brooks (2016 Class Champion), Ryan Beat, Cole Mamer/ Pro 2: Jarett Brooks, Doug Mittag, Pro 4: Doug Mittag.

"Amazing results," said Alex Striler, Director of Marketing for Team Lucas. "Bilstein shocked the off road industry last year when they took home not just one, but two championships in only their second season of short course racing!"
