On the road to the world record with Textar brake pads
From Dakar to Moscow in 3 days, 4 hours and 54 minutes. Experienced long-distance driver Rainer Zietlow has set a new world record. He conquered the 7,995 kilometres in a VW Amarok with Textar brake pads. The journey started on 22 April at 2:00 a.m. local time and ended on 25 April at 9:54 a.m. The team had to battle and overcome several obstacles including scorching heat, sand, cold and ice. Textar supported the world-record journey in the role of sponsor and fitted the vehicle with copper-free brake pads especially for the trip.
Stephan Giesecke, Head of Regional Marketing at TMD Friction congratulated Zietlow and his team and was happy that Textar could make a small contribution by supplying them with brake pads.
