THE LIQUI-MOLY Bathurst 12 Hour has partnered with Scuderia Autoart, one of Australia’s leading automotive and aftermarket parts companies, and KW Suspensions for the 2020 event.
The partnership will see the iconic ‘Chase’ named after the KW Suspensions brand this year, as well as KW Suspensions enjoying branding on, and products utilized in, Porsche 911 GT3R entries entered by both Earl Bamber Motorsport and Absolute Racing this year.
The 2019 race-winning Earl Bamber Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3R utilized KW Competition 3A technology during their stunning victory last year.
This year, both EBM and Absolute Racing will utilize the latest KW Competition 4A technology in their bid for back-to-back Bathurst wins for Porsche and KW.
The KW Suspensions Chase is an action zone of the 12-Hour weekend with plenty of overtaking and late-braking – but notably the fastest corner in Australian Motorsport which requires the ultimate in suspension control as the GT3 cars fly though the right-hand kink at more than 280km/hr.
KW Suspensions are an international powerhouse with a long motor sport history, as well as several key OEM relationships, limited edition models, motorsport and performance aftermarket programs with many major brands, including Porsche.
“Scuderia Autoart are a leading automotive and aftermarket parts company and they have over 15 years’ worth of experience within the field,” said Bathurst 12 Hour partnerships manager, Mitch Kane.
“As an official importer of KW Suspensions, the two have partnered together for the 2020 Bathurst 12 Hour and will take ownership of the KW Suspensions Chase this year.
“Their partnership is more than that, however, with the race also offering a real-world demonstration of their products given several leading cars that will undoubtedly be battling for victory will be using KW Suspension components in the race.”
Via Scuderia Autoart, the same KW Suspensions components utilized in the 12-Hour can be purchased by customers for use in both their competition and road going vehicles.
The company has a national dealer network, making it easy for race teams and customers to purchase locally, with KW’s extensive product knowledge and range there is no doubt that for every demand there will be the perfect suspension solution.
