"TENNECO and MONROE are playing a key role in the WTCC program of JAS" continues Mariani "They are our main sponsor but our partnership will go far beyond this, including the development of new products"

World leader in high performance coatings, BALZERS are supplying JAS with state-of-the-art surface treatments, which are normally employed by the engine division of JAS Motorsport to improve performance and reliability.

"The partnership with BALZERS was a necessary step to keep up to speed our research of performance" says Technical Director Stefano Fini "I can not disclose what and where this research is being employed in our car, but I can certainly state that it is definitely a successful technical partnership. BALZERS have a development and production center very close to JAS, and this is a great advantage to speed up the work and monitor the developments".
