The DTM and Bcomp announce to jointly boost sustainable lightweighting in motorsports.

The DTM announces Bcomp as technical partner for sustainable lightweighting
The first natural fibre DTM parts using Bcomp’s ampliTex and powerRibs technologies were already successfully validated by BMW Motorsport and Audi Sport during the last DTM tests in Jerez (SPA) and Vallelunga (IT). As a result, the technologies are introduced into mandatory parts and the technical regulations to enable a direct material change over from carbon fibre to natural fibres on further applications.

Key benefits

  • The patented technology enables unparalleled sustainability benefits for race car bodyworks and eliminates the risk of sharp carbon fibre debris
  • PowerRibs has the same weight as the previously used carbon fibre parts, while lowering the eco-footprint, improving cost-efficiency
