22 Jul Beissbarth – Team Rosberg’s new technical partner
For many years, Team Rosberg has been fond of using products from the Munich-based company Beissbarth. However, the cooperation has now been extended and represents advantages for both partners: Team Rosberg can further optimize its performance on the racetrack, while the Beissbarth developers can rely on the experience of a professional and successful racing team. This team is now using the RaceScales electronic corner weight scale and the innovative Q.Lign wheel alignment device and the employees were enthusiastic from day one.
Kimmo Liimatainen (Team Principal Team Rosberg): “There are basically three main aspects that convinced us of the RaceScales corner weight scale and the Q.Lign wheel alignment device: the accuracy, the speed and the mobility. Furthermore, for me as the team principal, it is essential that my employees can work with the best tools and products, ensuring our cars can go on the racetrack optimally prepared. We look forward to taking our longstanding collaboration with Beissbarth to the next level.”
Florian Rinkes (Engineer Team Rosberg): “The combination of the RaceScales corner weight scale and the Q.Lign wheel alignment device makes our work significantly easier. While wheel alignment and the weighing process used to be two different operations, they are now combined into one step. We can instantly spot the change in the weight distribution during the wheel alignment, without having to place the vehicle on a separate corner weight scale before. Both of the Beissbarth products are compact and wireless, which makes transport and set up on the racetracks easier for us. Thanks to Stream-To-X, the determined data can easily be displayed on several browser-based end devices such as PCs, tablets or smartphones. From my point of view, both products are a real advantage for us.”
Gary Palmer (Managing Director Beissbarth GmbH): “Team Rosberg and Beissbarth go back a long way. Due to that, we are beyond proud to equip Team Rosberg with two of our most innovative products as part of our partnership – the corner weight scale RaceScales, and the wheel alignment device Q.Lign, which enable them to work faster and more precisely. Even though on different levels, both of us share the desire and high standard of always wanting to be the first. Together, we can now offer top performance, on and off the track. I am looking forward to the exciting collaboration.”
