The Emil Frey group and #R-M have worked together as partners for many years, with many Emil Frey companies in Switzerland using premium paint brands from BASF. The Emil Frey Group, founded in 1924, is a Swiss family company operating in the automotive industry across multiple countries in Europe.
This year, R-M again proudly supports Emil Frey Racing team as yet another extension of the great spirit and dynamism of their partnership. Emil Frey Racing breaks new ground in 2022 as it enters the highly competitive ADAC GT Masters for the first time in the team’s history, fielding a trio of Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVOs, again with factory support from the Sant’Agata Bolognese firm. As well as a maiden campaign in the Germany-based championship, the team will also remain in Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe this year, focusing efforts on the Endurance Cup and the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa. Three cars confirmed for 2022 season with new car numbers #19 and #63 introduced to reflect Lamborghini heritage giving a nod to the founding of Lamborghini in 1963, while the #14 – the lucky number of Emil Frey Racing team principal Lorenz Frey-Hilti – remains on the third car.
“We are very excited this year again with #R-M supporting the new driving spirit in 2022 on the European racetracks. Having partnered for many years with Emil Frey companies in Europe such as Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland with #R-M, we continue to offer the highest quality, and most eco-effective refinish paint solutions and digital color and business solutions for our customers,” said Roar Solberg, Vice President Automotive Refinish Coatings Solutions EMEA.
Lorenz Frey-Hilti, Team Principal from Emil Frey shares, “ Competing in two different racing series at the same time is an additional challenge for us as a team. We thank Lamborghini and our partners for the trust they have placed in us and start the new season highly motivated.This year's driver squad is made up of long-time Emil Frey Racing drivers, Lamborghini factory drivers and newcomers. I am pleased that we can once again count on a strong driver line-up for all three cars. I am convinced that we have a strong team and that we have set the course for a successful season.”
Furthermore, having such a partnership with Emil Frey allows R-M materials to be housed in the warehouse at Safenwil and BASF’s R-M Colorimetry Centre and hotline enables any pre delivery damage to be repaired prior to the vehicle reaching the Pre-delivery Inspection facility.
