Advance Composites Group has seen its MTM57 component prepregs assist Seat’s Leon race cars to victory in the 2008 FIA World Touring Car Champion (WTCC) series.
The final round of the gruelling WTCC series, which took place in Macau (13 – 16 November), culminated with SEAT taking both the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ world champion titles.
ACG’s advanced composite versatile processing, medium temperature moulding MTM57 component prepregs, which are extensively used across these championship cars, have played a key role in the victories. Magma Composites, based in Olesa De Montserrat, Spain, and SEAT’s own Sport facilities used ACG’s MTM57 prepregs to manufacture a range of composite carbon fibre components to minimise vehicle weight, which led to subsequent improvements to both performance and handling characteristics.
The front and rear bumper, front and rear lateral wings, front beam, fuel tank cover, rear floor, rear structure for bumper, outside and inside panels of front and rear doors, rear spoiler, structure for spoiler, console, rear view mirrors, and some protective parts in the engine bay, are just some of the parts made using ACG’s MTM57 prepregs. Parts were manufactured in both cosmetic and painted finishes and cured via oven/autoclave processing.
