Zytek collects award at Professional MotorSport World Expo British company wins Powertrain Innovation of the Year award

Zytek collected the Powertrain Innovation of the Year award in Cologne on Tuesday evening. The honour was bestowed upon Zytek after its innovative hybrid technology proved competitive in the American Le Mans Series, with the Ginetta-Zytek GZ09HS hybrid Le Mans Prototype.

Turning the concept of kinetic energy recovery into a race-winning reality was a major breakthrough and Zytek made a vital contribution to this achievement, observed Awards judge and freelance motorsport technology writer Charles Armstrong-Wilson.

John Manchester, Zytek Operations director commented, It is a great honour for Zytek to receive this award. Motorsport is one of the best environments in the world to showcase and develop technology and this type of focus can help to educate people about Hybrid systems and ultimately lead to the transfer of technology onto to our ever day road vehicles.

Zytek is a world leader in hybrid, chassis and engine development, and is responsible for the two most successful and recognizable hybrids in the history of international sportscar racing, the Panoz Q9 GT1 and Ginetta-Zytek GZ09HS LMP1.

Zytek will be making a presentation on its unique hybrid technology at the World Motorsport Symposium on the 19th November.
