This is not by chance: as engines are at the heart of racing cars and spark plugs are the components that ignite them, NGK SPARK PLUG creates products and solutions that meet the high demands of racing teams around the world. The knowledge gained thereby is incorporated into serial production, benefitting regular road traffic.
"To be supported by the right people is extremely important. That includes sponsors such as NGK. I’ve lost races before due to malfunctioning parts. That’s why it’s such a good feeling when you can completely rely on key components."
