BILSTEIN Shock Absorbers continue to affirm the brands expertise across the world of motorsports - showcasing new talent and technology for 2018 with Dodge Hellcat Campaigned by Wesley Motorsports.
Poway, CA, April 12, 2018 - After forging long-standing partnerships across the European performance and premium automotive market, BILSTEIN continues to expand its sphere of influence to the domestic market, partnering with Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and SRT as an OEM supplier of suspension components.
Motorsports and racing provide the proving grounds for technology that ultimately trickle down into shocks that provide performance, safety and comfort to your daily driver. Because BILSTEIN recognizes the importance of this exchange of knowledge, the industry leader has partnered with the innovative and exciting talent at Wesley Motorsports and their aggressive 2018 race calendar.
Competing in illustrious events such as the historic Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC), Global Time Attack, and #GRIDLIFE, Kevin Wesley is expected to drive the Hellcat to victory in multiple arenas of competition.
“The Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is an amazing platform that handles unbelievably well,” foreshadows Wesley.
The preparations and modifications that go into transforming this already over-the-top muscle machine into a thoroughbred road racer are extensive. Paramount to the transformation were the BILSTEIN MDS double-adjustable dampers, a hardcore motorsports suspension engineered to provide the utmost in tuneability and dynamic chassis control over the demanding hill climbs and circuits on which the Hellcat will be campaigned.
