Craig Lowndes Continues to Rely
on SACHS in 2017

Rely on SACHS
  • Fifth straight year for Craig Lowndes as the SACHS Brand Ambassador in Australia.
  • Lowndes has won 105 Supercar races, with 53 relying on SACHS shock absorbers and clutches.
  • The 2017 Supercar season will be the 13th straight season for Lowndes racing on SACHS products.

Australian motorsport legend Craig Lowndes will continue to rely on SACHS shock absorbers and clutches in 2017, signing on for a fifth straight year as the official ambassador for the brand.

Over the past 12 seasons, Lowndes has relied exclusively on SACHS shock absorbers and clutches in his Triple Eight Race Engineering-prepared Supercars, including his latest TeamVortex Commodore.

Together, SACHS and Lowndes have claimed 53 Supercars Championship race victories, including five Bathurst 1000 titles.

Not only does Lowndes trust and rely on SACHS components whilst on the race track, but the team’s Iveco truck and transporter are factory-fitted with shock absorbers and clutch from the SACHS commercial vehicle range.

Throughout 2017, SACHS branding will be prominently displayed on Lowndes’ helmet and racesuit, and the logo currently appearing on his TeamVortex Commodore.

Additionally, as part of SACHS’ long-term partnership with Triple Eight Race Engineering, the SACHS logo currently features on the Supercars of Lowndes‘ teammates Jamie Whincup and Shane Van Gisbergen.

For Lowndes, a fully trained motor mechanic, working with SACHS products on and off the race track comes naturally.

“No question, when I am representing SACHS, I am able to talk about the brand and products with genuine first-hand experience,” Lowndes said.

“I don’t think that there’s a day that goes by that I don’t put my trust in a SACHS product in some form.”

According to ZF, SACHS’ parent company, having a credible ambassador in Australia is essential to its aftermarket strategy.

“Craig is obviously immensly popular and widely recognised across Australia, but it is his crediblity that brings so much to the SACHS brand,“ ZF Aftermarket Australia, Managing Director, Mark Sookias said.

“Craig genuinly uses our products and has real-world workshop experience with it. His background as a motor mechanic means that he really understands the products and their performance. So when he talks about safety, reliability, performance and trust, you know you can rely on what he says.

“We are proud of our long-term partnership with Craig and are looking forward to supporting him in his championship challenge this season.”

ZF is an original supplier to manufacturers worldwide, with its SACHS brand offering a wide range of shock absorbers for the aftermarket as well as an OE quality solution for a comprehensive range of vehicles on Australian roads.

Locally, motorsport products like the SACHS Formula Matrix dampers and carbon racing clutch are available through Triple Eight Race Engineering, while the full aftermarket range is available via ZF Aftermarket Australia.
