GEDORE has been involved in the pit lane of the W&S Motorsport Team since 2017. As an official sponsor - with a Porsche Cayman in GEDORE design and with logos on the rear of two other Porsche Caymans - the tool manufacturer supports the young racing car forge with quality tools and accessories made in Germany, whose efficiency, performance and safety are optimally tailored to the high demands in the workshop and pit lane.
Regular maintenance, technical know-how and the use of suitable tools are required to bring the horsepower of the racing cars to the asphalt with pinpoint accuracy. For the best service on the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 and the Porsche 992 GT3, W&S Motorsport has been equipped with, among other things, a fully equipped 1506 XL rolling workbench, screwdriver and socket sets and lots of special tools for the automotive sector.
The standard tools such as ratchets, hammers and measuring tools, which can be found in almost every toolbox, are just as often picked up when working in the pit lane as special tools for wheel alignment and pullers. Regardless of whether it is a rough emergency repair on the track or a fine adjustment, if the tools do not have the required quality, damage, loss of material and time or, in the worst case, injuries are the result. Torque spanners in particular must perform to the point; when replacing parts or working on the wheel, the limited slip differential and all components made of aluminium, such as the flywheel or clutch.
