Koni teams up With Team Orange Spyker for the LeMans 24 Hours.

KONI, the world-wide leader in adjustable shock absorber technology, is proud to announce its role as a supplier for Team Orange Spyker and the new Spyker C8 Double 12 R racecar introduced in April for the 2003 LeMans 24 Hrs.

The Orange Spyker LeMans car is equipped with KONI 2812 dampers, which performed perfectly at the Sebring 2003 12 Hrs race. KONI presented Spyker CEO, Victor Muller, and Managing Director, Maarten de Bruijn, with an authentic display model of the 2822 series shock as a symbol of the new partnership.

Currently all Spyker cars are factory-equipped with KONI 2812 dampers and soon KONI 2822 damper units will become a standard option pending setting tests to be performed later this year.

The KONI Race Service bus will be present at both the LeMans training session on May 4 and the race session on June 14/15 servicing 9 KONI- equipped teams. After LeMans 2003, the Orange Spyker car will also compete in the ALMS in Miami and Petit Le Mans in Atlanta.
