PAGID Racing and DKR Engineering: a strong partnership15. May 2018 -
DKR Engineering to compete with PAGID Racing Brake Performance in the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) and the Michelin Le Mans Cup
PAGID Racing is the official brake partner of DKR Engineering. The team from Luxemburg and the brake pad specialist from the German city of Essen aim at achieving racing success together in the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) and the Michelin Le Mans Cup. In the past, DKR Engineering already scored numerous victories with PAGID Racing brake performance, such as the 2017 Michelin Le Mans Cup title win.
DKR Engineering is running its Norma M 30 – Nissan with starting number 8 in the LMP3 class of the European Le Mans Series. The experienced trio of drivers behind the wheel of the Le Mans prototype with PAGID Racing Brake Performance are Jean Glorieux (BEL) and brother pairing Alexander and Miguel Toril (both ESP). In its debut season in the endurance series, the team has set itself the goal of racing with the frontrunners.
The defending champion, DKR Engineering is also running a Norma M 30 – Nissan in the six rounds of the Michelin Le Mans Cup season. Youngster Leonard Hoogenboom (NED) and seasoned prototype racer Jens Petersen (GER) have teamed up to take on the challenge of defending the title. That DKR Engineering is a force to be reckoned with again this season, the team already proved in an impressive way during the season opener a Le Castellet: after a strong finish, Leonard Hoogenboom/Jens Petersen claimed victory at Circuit Paul Ricard and moved up into first place of the drivers’ and teams’ standings. The team also celebrated victory at Autodromo Nazionale Monza and could extend the overall lead.
Oliver Brinkmann, DKR Engineering: “We are delighted to have a strong brake partner on our side with PAGID Racing. Together, we have won the Michelin Le Mans Cup title last year – the PAGID Racing brake pads were a decisive factor for our dominance. We want to build on that in the new season.”
Kai Roggenland, Director Motorsport TMD Performance GmbH: “DKR Engineering ranks among the top teams in LMP3 racing and already celebrated great achievements with PAGID Racing in the Michelin Le Mans Cup last year. We are delighted about the expanded co-operation and we are convinced that we will continue the success story together.”
