Wurth drives FIA Asia Pacific Rally

 

German market leader in assembly products Wurth has become an official supplier to the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship.
 
Wurth Asia-Pacific manager Benjamin Wurth says car rallying is an ideal stage for Wurth to demonstrate the strength and durability of its vehicle service and tool brands. 
 
“High quality products and tools are an integral part of this spectacular sport, Mr Wurth said. “Rally Sport is high-speed and Hi-tech, but unlike motor-racing its usually held in extreme and rough conditions. 
 
“Skilled engineers and technicians maintain the rally cars at every opportunity and they will utilise our products and expertise throughout the whole seven round championship.”
 
Wurth is a worldwide leader in assembly products within the automotive, construction and engineering industries and a large range of Wurth products, along with technical advice will be available at every APRC event.
 
APRC president Steven Kennedy said the partnership would provide a great boost for the championship and a fantastic incentive for the teams and competitors. 
 
Car manufacturers from Japan, Malaysia and Europe will enter the APRC this year. 
 
“Add major teams from India, Japan, Malaysia and China and the Wurth initiatives reach right across automotive and manufacturing industries in the region,” Mr Kennedy said.
 
The 2013 FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship begins with New Zealand’s high-speed Rally Whangarei on May 17-19.
 
This will be followed by events in New Caledonia and Queensland. 
 
The championship then moves to Asia starting with the Malaysian Rally (Johor Baru) in August, followed by Japan, China and the final event the Thailand Rally in December.
 
Manufacturers and drivers from around the world compete in the championship and the APRC is seen by millions of TV viewers globally.
