Motorsport in their Genes – in any Powertrain Architecture

Mobility is a basic human need, be it in the urban or interurban sphere, using public transportation or privately owned vehicles. Mobility means freedom. Schaeffler as an innovative technology group is committed to taking part in shaping efficient and sustainable mobility above and beyond the context of drive technology.

Motorsport assists in these endeavors because on-track competition puts technologies and systems to extreme endurance tests. The resulting findings are fed into production research and development projects, technology transfer being the keyword. Motorsport is both a source of challenge and motivation. Meticulous preparation, the ability to mold a team out of a group of employees and to explore the potential of technology – all of these aspects are equally essential ingredients of success as intuition and the capacity to achieve the maximum of what is feasible while ensuring top levels of quality and reliability.


We love competition and test our technologies under extreme conditions to make them ready for volume production. The expertise gained in motorsport goes directly into the development of our components and systems. Always achieving the best possible results combined with outstanding quality and reliability is part of our DNA. That‘s #WhyWeRace.
