MOTEC

The AVO Fahrzeugtechnik was established in 1997 with headquarters in Wachenheim/Germany and is dedicated to the development and distribution of special wheels for tuner, wholesalers and wheel manufacturers in Germany and other European countries.

TEAM 75 Bernhard

Racing runs in the blood of the Bernhard family. Timo’s dad Rüdiger, who is a passionate racer himself, took part in various hill climbs, slaloms and Rallyes in the last 40 years and together with Timo’s mum Scholli, he supported their son’s career from the very beginning and has been part of every step of Timo’s way to the top as a professional racing driver.

With this knowledge and experience it was obvious to start up an own team and in 2010 they first founded ‘Rallye Team 75’ with Timo as driver. The small team benefitted from their long lasting experience and after a few victories and overall Rallye wins with the Porsche 911 GT3, the team decided to get involved in the Porsche Carrera Cup as TEAM 75 Bernhard in 2013.

After three successful seasons they moved to the ADAC GT Masters scoring four victories, two additional podiums and two pole positions in their debut season.

This year the team extended their motorsport commitments to the VLN endurance racing championship at the Nuerburgring. Having won there numerous times himself, the expansion was the logic next step for Timo and his dad to further develop the team.

End of July 2017 the team will contest the 24 Hours of Spa which will be a premier for the German team, when they enter the endurance classic with a Porsche 911 GT3 R in the PRO category.
