KW Wins Aston Martin Racing as a Customer: Revolutionising Performance with Solid Piston Motorsport Shock Absorbers

In the fast-paced world of motorsports, every detail counts when gaining a competitive edge on the track. The 2024 Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3 Evo and Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 Evo race cars are set to redefine performance standards, thanks to their partnership with KW automotive. The German suspension manufacturer's cutting-edge technology is taking Aston Martin Racing to new heights, with the KW Solid Piston Motorsport shock absorbers at the heart of this transformation.

KW Racing Dampers: Elevating Handling and Performance

In a global motorsport landscape where customer racing is flourishing, KW automotive has emerged as a pivotal player. The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and GT4 Evo cars are now officially equipped with KW Racing dampers, a move that is bound to enhance their handling and overall performance on the racetrack.

A Worldwide Impact

The impact of customer motorsport is felt not only in Germany but across Europe, America, and Asia. As more car manufacturers recognise the significance of advancements in the suspension domain, KW automotive is becoming a trusted name in the industry.

Homologation of KW Solid Piston Dampers

The 2024 Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3 Evo and GT4 Evo cars will be delivered to motorsport customers with the homologated KW Solid Piston dampers. These dampers, available in five-way adjustable and two-way adjustable variants, play a crucial role in the Evo upgrades, immediately impressing test drivers with the improvements they bring.

Huw Tasker, Head of Partner Racing AMR, highlights the impact of KW dampers on the Evo variants, stating, "The new Evo variants of our existing GT3 and GT4 cars have taken a big step forward in precision and driveability."

Aston Martin Racing Trusts KW

Motorsport has been ingrained in the DNA of Aston Martin for over a century. Thomas Rechenberg, Head of KW Motorsport, expresses delight in winning Aston Martin Racing as a customer. "The British brand is a motorsport institution with great global reach," says Rechenberg.

KW Solid Piston Shock Absorbers for GT3 and GT4 Racecars

The KW V6 Racing dampers for the Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3 Evo boast five different damping characteristics, instilling confidence in drivers during tests. The limited space on the front axle necessitated a bespoke solution for double wishbone axles, showcasing KW automotive's commitment to tailored solutions.

KW's Solid Piston Technology, a departure from traditional design philosophies, prevents oil overflow through the working piston. The modular valve technology allows the customisation of valve cross-sectional openings and valve spring preload, providing a flexible design to configure damper response behaviour.

Precision and Functionality

The KW Racing dampers, featuring Solid Piston Technology, offer high-frequency, precise functions at low valve travel. The adjustable blow-off function dampens sudden vertical force increases, ensuring optimal performance when aggressively driven over curbs.

Beyond GT3: Homologation for AMR GT4 Evo

In addition to the Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3 Evo, the AMR GT4 Evo also features homologation with KW Racing dampers. The two-way adjustable KW V5 Racing dampers in the AMR GT4 Evo cater to the low-speed range of compression and rebound for enhanced control.

KW's commitment to revolutionising motorsports suspension solutions is evident in their collaboration with Aston Martin Racing. As the undisguised Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3 Evo cars took centre stage on February 12, 2024, it marked a new era of performance and precision on the racetrack.
