Bcomp is completely taking over the automotive industry. We first wrote about the Swiss company when it partnered with Volvo for their car interiors. From there, we wrote about the partnerships with BMW and Polestar. Now, Bcomp will be one of the suppliers of Super Formula, Japan’s top single-seater race series.
As a refresher, Bcomp produces sustainable flax composite products. Super Formula will be using a hybrid material of 70% flax and 30% carbon fiber. This is part of Super Formula’s sustainability transition. The next step is to use tire compounds made of recycled rubber.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Race series have previously been the first place to look regarding automotive innovations. Everything from active suspension to power steering started on the race tracks. Now, Bcomp is becoming one of the key material providers of a prestigious race series. Looking historically, it seems that Bcomp will soon be a staple brand in the automotive industry.
