MUNICH, June 7, 2017 — BMW Motorsport used biologically effective lighting from Osram Licht AG during its 24-hour race on the Nürburgring in Germany.

Light from Osram puts MBW Motorsport in top form.As the new official partner of BMW Motorsport, Osram supplied activating light for drivers and engineers before and during the race, enhancing their alertness and boosting their concentration.

"We are delighted that BMW Motorsport has opted to use our innovative lighting solutions,” said Stefan Kampmann, chief technology officer at Osram. “High-level competitive sport demands optimum performances, and this is where our lighting expertise can help the racing team.”

The range of solutions is designed to mobilize the energy of drivers and engineers exactly when needed during the race and help them sharpen their focus. The light comes in the form of LED light glasses and special luminaires. LED light glasses are used to help the drivers prepare for races. The blue LED light prepares them for the competition by stimulating the central nervous system. In addition, special luminaires are installed in common rooms and the pit wall control center for the benefit of both drivers and engineers. They emit light with a high blue component, helping to heighten and maintain concentration levels even during the night session.

”The competition at the Nürburgring 24 Hours [was] possibly more intense this year than ever before in the history of this iconic race,” said Jens Marquardt, director of BMW Motorsport. “That [made] the details all the more important. As such, I am really happy [to] have Osram on board as an official partner. With its innovative solutions and experience in the field of light, the company [made] a valuable contribution to allowing our drivers to adapt to the unique challenges of the Nordschleife at night during the race.”

Osram is a lighting manufacturer for high-tech applications based on semiconductor technology such as IR or laser lighting.
