New Sponsorship deal for Simtek

February 6, 1995 For immediate release

Simtek Signs Timely Sponsor Glashutter Original celebrates its 150th anniversary with F1 sponsorship

Simtek Grand Prix has attracted the support of one of Europe's foremost quality watch manufacturers - Glashutter Original of Germany.

Not only is 1995 Glashutter Original's 150th anniversary, it is also the first year of a dynamic new management, whose target is to publicise the company's respected heritage of traditional craftsmanship with a new upbeat advertising campaign.

Said Glashutter Original's Heinz W. Pfeifer, "Via Simtek we will bring the name of our company to the notice of many new people around the world. Importantly, this includes Japan, one of our major export markets; coincidentally the home of Simtek driver Hideki Noda."

Simtek's Nick Wirth commented, "While watches and Grand Prix cars may appear to have little in common, they are both high-tech items in their own right; a fact of particular significance to Glashutter Original. We are, of course delighted to add the name of such a highly respected company to our growing list of sponsors, which already includes all last year's major backers, plus an additional international corporation whose name we will shortly reveal."

The first Simtek S951 chassis is due for arrival at Simtek's technical centre in the next few days, after which the first new car will quickly take shape. Wirth's evolutionary design will be powered by Ford's customer engine - the Cosworth ED; benefit from a semi-automatic transmission developed by Simtek Grand Prix's sister company, Simtek Research, and utilise components from the Benetton electro-hydraulic gearchange system.
