Max Kruse, founder of the race team: “Max Kruse Racing is merging football and motorsport: in both sports, the same action patterns lead to success – working hard on yourself is required. The ADAC TCR Germany provides the perfect stage for our maiden season in which we have a strong brake partner on our side with PAGID Racing.”

In motorsport, you can make up a lot of time under braking and you have to be able to rely on your brake system for 100 percent all the time, and that is exactly what PAGID Racing stands for. In the past, I have already been able to celebrate numerous achievements with PAGID Racing. With Max Kruse Racing, we intend to continue this success story.”
