Cars equipped with Bilstein shock absorbers finished first and second in the GT class at the Rolex 24-hour race in Daytona earlier this year.
The #44 Magnus Racing 911 finished first, trailed closely by the #67 TRG Porsche on the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, where nearly 27% of the GT vehicles were equipped with Bilstein shocks.
John Potter, Magnus team owner and driver: “We installed Bilstein’s latest MDS adjustable shocks on our 911 GT3 for this year and were ecstatic with the performance. There’s no doubt that along with some great driving and teamwork, they contributed to our win.”
Kevin Buckler, owner and CEO of TRG: " Bilstein is a professional organization and has made its mark by winning in motorsports. They've been a great partner to us and have always given us a competitive advantage."
Both teams utilized Bilstein’s MDS adjustable coilover monotube struts and shocks with independent ten-way rebound and ten-way compression double adjustable shafts.
The 24 Hour Rolex race featured 727 laps and a total of 2588 miles. It’s estimated that shock absorbers move about 1750 cycles per mile in normal driving, so the new Bilstein MDS adjustable shocks controlled the Porsche suspension at a minimum of 4,529,210 trouble-free cycles.
