Welcome to the team, Cong Fu!

We are happy that we have been able to win the Chinese DTM pilot Cong Fu “Franky” Cheng for the circle of Schuberth race drivers. Cong Fu Cheng, in Europe also known as “Franky” to keep it simple, is a driver in the AMG Mercedes team and relies officially on our carbon helmet RF1 since last race at the Nürburgring. Franky ranks among the most successful motorsports people in China. He could already celebrate many achievements in different international Formula series und was part of the McLaren sponsorship program. In the DTM he is the first Chinese ever who started in the most popular European touring car series.

During a visit in our helmet manufactory Franky could take his new helmet directly out of the hands of our CEO Marcel Lejeune. Afterwards our Head of Production Christof Wobst showed and explained him how a motorcycle helmet is produced. Franky was impressed by how much manual work is needed.

We wish Franky a successful motorsport season 2010 and are happy to have such an excellent ambassador in China.

DTM: 1st Race – Bruno made second place

The 25th of April the DTM started its season on the Hockenheim circuit. With our newest driver Bruno Spengler and with Ralf Schumacher we have two Schuberth-drivers at the DTM.

Bruno started at 3rd place and finished 2nd with his best season-start so far, and we´d like to wish him all the best for the upcoming Valencia race.

Ralf Schumacher made 9th place. His helmet was also designed by Jens Munser who had a hard time delivering all the helmets needed in each of the race series.

Ralf actually wears two different designs – one with a glossy and one matt finish. Our photo show the glossy one.

We´ll show you all our new helmets in the upcoming days – so be prepared for more Schuberth race helmets with awesome designs.

New Driver: Bruno Spengler, DTM

Today we´d like to welcome a new race-driver as a Schuberth-driver:

Bruno Spengler (http://www.brunospengler.com) enters the new season with his new helmet:

The helmet was designed by Pat from Quebec. Obviously it was his first Schuberth:

“Unfortunately I can’t compare the fit and finish of the Schuberth as they sent me only the outer shell in a bare carbon. The only thing I can say is that the shell is extremely light, lighter than a BELL HP3.”

The offical press conference introducing drivers and teams will be at the 18.04.2010. The first race will be at the 24.04.2010 – we wish him much success.
