EMEA Performance Distributors Experience WTCC Turbos in Hungaroring
In May, Performance Garrett distributors from across Europe and the Middle East experienced at first hand the effect of the Garrett GRE GT2559R turbo specified for this year’s FIA WTCC series.
The distributors were in Budapest to discuss growth opportunities in Europe and to receive the latest product and marketing updates from the Honeywell Aftermarket Performance team led by Justin Ocello. However, as the annual meeting coincided with the third race in the FIA WTCC series at the Hungaroring circuit, Garrett by Honeywell and local Performance distributor Magyar Turbo arranged a specific area at the circuit paddock to showcase the GTX Performance Series and other turbos exclusive to motorsports applications. All FIA WTCC vehicles race this season with GRE GT2559R Honeywell Motorsport turbos.
The distributors were also able to experience the excitement of the WTCC races at the paddock inside the Zengö Motorsports box, whose Honda car is driven by the Hungarian Racing star Norbert Michelisz “Norbi”.
Garrett Performance distributor Magyarturbo kft is proud sponsor of Zengö Motorsports and provides technical expertise to this WTCC team.
