Renger chooses Elacin
As of 21 August 2011, Renger van der Zande, factory race-driver for Mercedes-Benz Motorsport in the International highest class for racing with closed cars, will be the official ambassador for Elacin custom-made earplugs.
Talking about the background to this commitment, Renger says: “Top level international motor racing offers an environment of high quality technology and fierce competition. Besides millions of spectators, it attracts just as many viewers of and readers about motor racing. However, the sport is also renowned for the penetrating whine of car engines. A sound we can’t seem to get enough of, despite the high tones.
All motor racing fans love the sound of a field of accelerating racing cars. As a top racing driver, I am therefore looking for a solution which will allow me to continue enjoying this wonderful sound, now and in the future. Elacin offers a solution in the form of a professional in-ear monitoring system, which enables me to communicate with the team leaders and pit crew whilst being optimally protected from ambient audio levels. As a top racing driver with the professional Mercedes-Benz, I cannot afford to compromise when it comes to quality. Particularly where my hearing is concerned. The quality of Elacin earplugs is what brought me to Elacin. I’m therefore very proud that they asked me to be their ambassador. I can recommend Elacin’s wonderful products to anyone wishing to enjoy motor racing to the full. As they themselves aptly describe it: sound as it was meant to be heard.”
