ABT Gets A New Motorsports Centre
ABT now has got a new center based near it’s headquarters in Kempten, Bavaria. The state-of-art motorsport centre is settled on 2,400 square meter and a staff of about 50 will now prepare the 4 units of Audi RS5 DTM’s for the DTM and this centre will also develop the FIA Formula E activities.
“Motorsport is our great passion and has been a pillar of our company for decades”, commented CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. “With the new complex, we have created the right conditions for our future work. Our team feels good there, enjoys ideal working conditions and has a lot of space to be creative“, he added. The all-new centre is really impressive both inside and outside. The exterior boasts chamfered, matt-black steel plates and red, high-gloss aluminium, while the interior is a real motorsport paradise.
There are lavish work areas, modern offices, carbon and transmission workshops, a washing shed, modern equipment, a spacious warehouse and a gym. The truck shed next door can house five trailers, which now can be loaded and unloaded in whatever weather conditions may obtain outside. Even the daily DTM pit stop exercises can be done inside.
