Team BSR ready for formula one 2017!
Na jaren van ontwikkeling en voorbereiding is het nu officieel: BSR heeft een spiksplinter Formule 1 team dat vanaf 2017 zal gaan rijden.
- 'Het is ontzettend fijn dat na jaren in het geheim werken aan de formule wagen we nu eindelijk een wagen hebben met een motor die mee kan doen in de top van de divisie', aldus de teammager Uno Avrillia.
Zoals gezegd, dit is een project dat al een aantal jaar loopt. De ervaring die BSR heeft opgedaan in het racen en optimaliseren van motoren blijkt een winnende combinatie. Alles is klaar voor het nieuwe seizoen. Wie de rijders zijn zal later bekend gemaakt worden.
- Volgens Abril Primero, bestuurdesmanager, zal het in elk geval gaan om een Zweeds coureur die al verschillende italiaanse kampioenschappen op zijn naam heeft staan.
Nothing pleases us more than to see happy customers leave our development workshop with a flying start and a smile on their face. The other day we had a client who left the workshop with the previously installed diesel effectbox, unplugged and placed in the passenger seat, on his new Skoda Octavia RS 2014. As many others, he was not happy with the power increase the effect box had given and challenged us to outdo it. However, after testing and development it turned out to be a fairly easy task. After our dyno tests it turned out it did not generate more than 2,1 HP and 10,8 NM... After extensive testing and development, we managed to produce a Stage 1 tuning kit that provides 27 HP and 52 NM on the wheels. The car completely changed character with more power over the whole range and with joy every time you press the throttle.
Original: 185 HP & 391 NM
Diesel Box: 187,1 HP & 401,8 NM
BSR steg 1: 213 HP & 443 NM
The customer was more than satisfied with what we achieved. What happened to the diesel box? No idea. However, maybe a motor museum could find interest in it...
Our development lab is currently working hard and successfull to develop new tuning kits. The time and effort has paid off so far, or how about 44 horsepower increase (VW Golf) and 69 horsepower increase (VW Transporter) for two of our most recent tuning kits? Newly added tuning kits:
Audi A3 1.6 TDI 105hk 2013-2015 (>134HK/315NM)
Audi A3 2.0 TDI 150hk 2013-2015 (>194HK/401NM)
Volkswagen Transporter 2.0 TDI 102Hp 2010-2012 (>171HK/407NM)
Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI 150Hp 2013-2015 (>194HK/401NM)
Volkswagen Golf 1.6 TDI 105Hp 2013-2015 (>134HK/315NM)
Seat Leon 1.6 TDI 105hk 2013-2015 (>134HK/315NM)
Seat Leon 2.0 TDI 150hk 2013-2015 (>194HK/401NM
Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDI 105hk 2013-2015 (>134HK/315NM)
Skoda Octavia 2.0 TDI 150hk 2013-2015 (>194HK/401NM)
Machine- & Tuning Warranty are included (see terms and conditions).
Both the BSR Machine Warranty for the power train and the Tuning Warranty with free software updates after the service are included in the tuning kit. Via the included PPC 3 unit you can change between tuned and stock settings in a few minutes, without lifting the hood.
Have a look in our webshop for more detailed information about the tuning kits.
Congratulations Subaru owners! For the first time in BSR's history, we are happy to present tuning kits for Subaru models Forester, Impreza and Legacy (2007-2009). The focus of development has been to get more power across the whole range, while maintaining the harmony in the well-built chassi. The tuning kits therefore give the machines a nice increase of power where the four-wheel drive is acting distinctly and transfers it efficiently to the track. With the tuning software loaded the driving experience is a treat and Subaru's success on the rally track is easy to understand.
After six years of research and development we have created a series of tuning kits allowing quick and simple PPC tuning for most new VAG cars (Audi, Volkswagen, Skoda and Seat) from 2009 onwards.
The innovation enables a fast and user-friendly way for the owners of these cars to tune without lifting the bonnet. Previously, the newer car models from the VAG group had to visit a service center to get their car tuned - a step which is now completely bypassed.
The BSR PPC device is delivered to your door step and are easy connected to the diagnostic socket inside the car. With some keystrokes and a few minutes of waiting, the new software is loaded into the car's ECU. After this process the car is directly ready to run - with more horsepower and torque than before. The PPC unit also provides the ability to restore the software to factory settings or load the tuning kit again if the software have been removed by the workshop.
BSR also give 1 year machine warranty (for cars with
existing machine warranty) on their tuning kits.
"This is the biggest news to the industry in a very long time.
Car owners across the world have for long requested this. For them it will now get significantly easier to tune their car"
Stefan Olsson, CEO - BSR Sweden
