From the 2016 season, two enterprises celebrating special anniversaries are going to cooperate. The ‘Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH’ that can look back on 70 years of company history, this year, will become technology partner and lubricant supplier of the ‘Spezial Tourenwagen Trophy’, SST, that is celebrating its 30th anniversary, in 2016. The grid of the series features sports cars such as the Mercedes SLS AMG GT3, Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3R, Audi R8 LMS ultra, Porsche 911 GT3 Cup to RSR, BMW Z4 GT3 and V8 STAR, with vehicles such as Seat Leon, VW Scirocco, Golf, Toyota or Audi A3 representing the touring-car camp. Four of the SST race meetings will be held in the support programme of the ADAC GT Masters and the season will be kicked off from 15th to 17th April at Hockenheim as part of the popular Bosch Hockenheim Historic.
“We look forward to cooperating with the SST,” said Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH Motorsport Director Martin Huning and added: “The Spezial Tourenwagen Trophy with the numerous brands on its grid offers us a great chance of demonstrating the competitiveness of our motor-racing products while increasing the number of our customer teams at the same time. And we also are delighted about the fact that the series will race on the platform of top-quality events.” Series organiser Rolf Krepschik replied: “I’m really happy about the trouble-free short-notice acceptance by Ravenol. The discussions with their Motorsport Director, Martin Huning, were constructive and confiding and so, there are no obstacles regarding a long-term cooperation with the renowned Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH.”
