Achievements in motor sports are always based upon trustful partnerships!
At this point I would like to thank all my partners and sponsors for their support and trust in me and my performance. You are and have always been the backbone of my career and success in motor sports.
Below I would like to present to you in brief my co-operation partners. For further information please click on the link to reach their homepages.
For 40 years the name LuK has been practically synonymous with innovation, unsurpassed customer orientation and the outstanding quality of its range of products for the automotive drive train. LuK, a supplier for systems and components of automotive drive train parts for modern automobiles around the world, has been supporting me since 1990. The successful co-operation was crowned by the victory of the Porsche World Cup in 2001.
Versatile production enables KW to convert technical requests swiftly into race-winning high-performance racing technology. At the same time, KW attaches great importance to establishing close working relationships with the racing teams. This in turn enables KW to implement the experience gained from this also into roadgoing products. KW is heavily involved both in popular sport and also in top-level sport.
Castrol has supported my motor sports career since 1979 and is my eldest sponsor – special thanks to that! Castrol provided me with their premium lubricants already during my kart sport years, which helped me reach my first victories.
The brand values of the tire manufacturer “tradition, competence, sportiness and performance” build the perfect connection between my race cars and the optimal grip to the track since 1989. The lush grip of the English motor sport products helped me reach minimum times and victories numerous times during my motor sport career.
Wolfgang Kaufmann has been a steady partner of the specialist for car glass since 2001. Carglass falls back on the competence of Wolfgang Kaufmann for employee or customer incentives, such as safety driving, driving techniques or motor sports trainings, or even high speed drives on international circuits.
Motor tuner Uwe Gemballa puts Porsche dreams into reality. The successful co-operation, which started in 2001, puts forward two victories (2002/2004) of the Sport Auto Tuner Grand Prix on the Hockenheim Circuit, as well as the fastest lap of a road vehicle with regular tires – no sports tires – on the Nurburgring circuit.
In 1994, Wolfgang Kaufmann was one of the first to support the driving safety centre with the improvement and development of the driving safety and also race driving training courses. Ever since, he is working as a freelance instructor for the FSZ with a focus on driving safety trainings, individualised corporate events and racy assignments on the Nürburgring circuit. The objective is to teach all participants how to drive safely and controlled in traffic in order to prevent accidents.
His association with ATEC, a company located in Neustadt/Weinstraße, goes back to 1992 when he competed in the German Formula 3 Championship with a Dallara 392 Opel.
As development partner of Opel Team Schübel, Wolfgang Kaufmann has come to appreciate the highly professional and flexible workmanship of the German company, and value their products.
