Axalta makes TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe (TGR-E) shine. As part of a multi-year agreement, Axalta – a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings – will coat TGR-E’s motorsports equipment for the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and the race cars for customer motorsports.
The first results of the technical partnership can already be seen on the track, with various GR Supra GT4s taking part in races across Europe but also at the Le Mans 24 Hours next week where TOYOTA GAZOO Racing will use its repainted garage walls for the very first time.
Just as TGR-E, Axalta has a decades-long history in racing bringing its industry-leading technology and product innovations to major series such as Formula One, NASCAR and MotoGP.
“Axalta has a rich heritage in racing, and we understand how important it is to demonstrate durability and reliability in these high-endurance racing environments,” said Jim Muse, Vice President of Refinish for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Axalta. “We share the same drive and passion as TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe, and we’re confident that, together, we are creating the winning formula of technology and innovation.”
Rob Leupen, Managing Director of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe GmbH, said, “The demands on the design and painting in motorsports are particularly high. We need partners who have the knowledge and experience to support us in our ambitious projects and in the associated challenges now and in the future, so we are delighted to have Axalta as a partner.”
