With more than 400 million spectators worldwide, 12 races on four continents and participation from manufacturers such as BMW, Seat, Chevrolet and more, KW Suspension has decided to become as serial partner of the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC).

The running gear manufacturer will support the entire championship and its logo will be represented on the number boards of all racecars.

Over the years, the WTCC has developed into one of the most successful championships in motorsport history. This is partially because the WTCC drivers are not allowed to use any electronic assistance systems, and therefore have to prove their driving skills in every corner.

The WTCC motto "Real Cars, Real Racing" also perfectly matches the internationally specialist KW. With its extensive program for sport coilover kits, sway bars, dampers and much more, KW makes production cars more sporty.

"The WTCC is very attractive for us because the cars are enhanced production vehicles, not purpose-built racecars that have little in common with street models," said KW chairman Klaus Wohlfahrt. "Real cars are driven in real races. There is no series which is closer to the racing fan than WTCC."

The next race will take place in the little Pyrenees town Pau on May 17th. It's the third time the WTCC has raced there. The town in south-western France offers a 2.76km urban street circuit, which has not been modified since 1935. The narrow roads and close proximity to the spectators turn the 19 laps into a special event.
