Also, coking and soot deposition can favor the clogging of the injections systems and thus results in far-reaching damage. Therefore, proper cleaning and long-term protection of the entire fuel system is essential.

Effective cleaning

The fuel system cleaner effectively cleans the entire fuel system of soilings and resin formations. From the tank to the combustion chambers, the product removes stubborn soot desposits in the upper cylinder area and resin deposits in the carburetor and injector area. This optimizes exhaust emissions, fuel consumption and also increases the service life of engines.

Optimal protection

For the long-term protection, the use of the fuel system water remover is recommendable. The product acts hydraulic and protects the entire system from rust and corrosion. In addition the remover prevents ice formation and improves the engine’s cold start.

Oil Anti Smoke An increased emission of soot is not uncommon in some diesel engines. The bluechemGROUP has the optimal solution for this problem.]]> Wed, 21 Nov 2018 08:22:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/oil-anti-smoke-8835.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/oil-anti-smoke-8835.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Especially older engines tend to higher emission of soot if the fuel system is not cleaned by specification. However, modern diesels with common-rail or pump-injector injection may also be affected. An increased emission of soot results from incomplete combustion due contamination, attrition, contaminated fuel or damage of the injections system. A quiet running diesel engine with reduced smoke and reduced oil attrition is still not an impossibility.

Innovative product formulation

The bluechemGROUP has created an effective product, the oil anti smoke, which is ideal for vehicles with increased oil consumption. It ensures an optimum lubrication of all moving parts and counteracts the oxidation of engine oil. The innovative product formulation effectively reduces the smoke and soot emission of all 4-stroke, diesel and gas-powered engines. The engines runs smoother, the attrition decreases and the life of the unit increases. The high viscosity of the product also prevents oil from getting into the combustion chamber.

High temperatures of the gas are necessary, which arise only by driving longer distances. The use of diesel vehicles in city traffic and for short distances cause the congestion of particulate filters. In order to avoid extensive damage, proper cleaning is important.

The bluechemGROUP has 4 options to remove and prevent stubborn residues and soiling effectively in particulate filter.

Preventative cleaning with our high-performance DPF-power cleaner provides a regeneration aid for DPF-Systems. The product reduces the ignition temperature of the collected soot and already acts on short distances. Without removal of the particulate filter, the cleaner acts during driving with regular use.

An intensive cleaning is achieved by the use of the DPF-Flushing Liquid. At this stubborn dirt and residue are effectively removed. The particulate filter must be dismantled and stored for 8-10 hours in the special liquid. The product is easily applicable to aluminium, magnesium, zinc and cadmium parts and ideally suited for the latest particulate filter generations.

The DPF Top Gun Cleaner for pressure spray guns offers another alternative of cleaning without disassembly. It is sprayed directly into the DPF and dissolves residues in the particulate filter gently and effetively. The product is easily applicable to aluminium, magnesium, zinc and cadmium parts and ideally suited for the latest particulate filter generations.

Workshops have the opportunity to use the DPF catalyst cleaner to remove stubborn dirt by evaporation without disassembly. This will restore the original performance of the particulate filter, even at high levels of obstruction. The cleaner is ideally suited for the latest particulate filter generations.

The bluechemGROUP offers inexpensive options to prevent the costly replacement of the diesel particulate filter.

Car wash privately - So it works! Do you want to wash your car privately, you should pay attention on some points. The most important we are listed here.]]> Wed, 17 Oct 2018 14:34:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/car-wash-privately-tips-8796.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/car-wash-privately-tips-8796.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed If you prefer to wash your car privately and dont use a car wash, you must pay attention to a few points. For the sake of environment, the private car wash schould also be relocated to a washing area. These usually have a cleaning system that protects the groundwater. What you shoul pay attention to and how you wash your car in the right way, we explain here.

1. Rims and tires

Tires and rims are easier to clean with a high-pressure cleaner. Make sure to keep the correct distance of 30-40 cm. In addition, the water should not be hotter than 60°C. To remove stubborn dirt, a rim cleaner can be used. Our wheel rim cleaner is not only gentle on steel and aliminium rims but also effectively removes dirt.

2. External cleaning

Coarse dirt, such as leaves, should be removed by hand before cleaning. Its advisable to wash off insects, bird droppings and tree resin as quickly as possible with warm water. With a high-pressure cleaner you can remove soilings like salt, sand or dirt. Pay attention to the minimum distance of 30 cm. Otherwise the paint can be damaged. Then wash the car with sponge, car shampoo and lukewarm water. Our car shampoo cleans paint, glass and plastic surfaces and generate a pearlescent film. For the perfect finish, the paint can be treated with polish.

3. Window cleaning

Cleaning the windows is also a part of car washing. Windscreen cleaner and microfibre cloths are often sufficient to get the perfect view again. If the windscreen is soiled with oils or resins, then we can recommend our adhesive remover. This remover acts gentle and cleans effectively.

4. Door rubbers and plastic stripes

Especially if the car is to be winterized, treating the rubber strips is an important preperation. Our plastic and rubber care clean easily rubber-containing surfaces and plastic components. It prevents fading in the long term and has a water-repellent effect. In cold season you can grease the rubber strips, so that they are optimally protected against cold and wet.

5. Interior care

After the seats and foot area of the car have been hoovered, you can clean the car dashboard with warm water and car shampoo. If you want to clean the upholstery of the seats, we can recommend our upholstery cleaner. It remove stubborn dirt and also create a fresh fragrance.

Success for Simon Reicher at the Hockenheimring First GT-3-race and directly success in the young motorsport career of Simon Reicher. 3rd place for him at the Hockenheimring.]]> Fri, 12 Oct 2018 11:29:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/success-for-simon-reicher-at-the-hockenheimring-8778.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/success-for-simon-reicher-at-the-hockenheimring-8778.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Third place in Simon Reicher‘s GT-3 premiere

The Austrian Simon Reicher had been waiting with great excitement and anticipation for last weekend’s (October 5-6) GT-3 race at the Hockenheimring, his first race in this category in his very young motorsport career. The 18-year-old competed for his team YACO Racing in the famous 585-hp Audi R8 LMS. Visibly impressed, the Kirchberg-native told us: “A few weeks ago, I received the awesome opportunity from Schubert Motorsport to test their GT-3 Honda in Oschersleben. Already then, I noticed how sensitive a GT-3 car is. This weekend confirmed my first impression: I was very impressed with the precision of the car and how it reacts to the smallest changes in the setup.“

Simon Reicher wants to compete in the ADAC GT Masters in 2019. Now he has already started under the technical specifications that are required there. Even if that meant that the Audi R( LMS missed 15 kilometer per hour on the track. „My goal for 2019 is to secure one of the highly coveted driver seats in the series. It would not make much sense for us to rebuild the car for this one race.“

The sympathetic Austrian delivered a flawless performance during the first race on Saturday, moving into fourth place early on and later securing third position to the finish line. “It was unbelievable. That was so much fun. I am very, very happy that my team entrusted me with their Audi R8 LMS. Thanks to my team principal Uwe Geipel for his trust.” Reicher’s second race on Saturday was a similar success, starting and finishing in fifth position.

The bluechemGROUP acted as sponsor for Simon Reicher. By the quality products of the bluechemGROUP, the Audi R8 LMS was in a peak form. Combined with the skills of Simon Reicher, this top performance was achieved.

Simon Reicher’s concluded his successful GT-3 premiere as such: “This weekend was like a switch from a propeller plane to a fighter jet, and it was simply awesome! This has been my dream for so many years. We will now analyze the season in every detail, explore our options, and see how we will proceed for the coming season. Until then, the gym will see me more frequently than during the tightly scheduled season.”

You want to start a car ride and then it begins to rain, snow or pelt. If not necessary, you would leave your car and postpone the ride. If you are on the road and already well on the way to your destination, here are some points you can follow to arrive save and relaxed despite bad weather conditions.

Always take enough time for your ride.
Especially on long distances, many unforeseen obstacles can arise. With enough time buffer, you will arrive more conveniently and safe at your destination.

Watch your speed.
Aquaplaning is a possible result of heavy rain. Also in winter black ice is conceivably. Too high speed in such weather conditions means the loss of control and a risk to your health and the health of other people. If you ever get into the situation of hydroplanning, don‘t slow down instantly, don‘t steer suddenly, but lay off the gas pedal and disengage to reduce the speed. If you have grip on the road again, you can declerate slowly for a further speed reduction.

Always keep a bigger distance to the car in front of you.
A rule of thumb in favorable weather conditions is half the speed in meters. If you move at a speed of 100 km/h, the distance to the other car should be 50 m. In unfavorable weather conditions you should increase the distance and adjust it to the respective situation.

Switch on the dipped beam to be visible faster by other driver.
Use fog lights and the rear fog-lamp only in extremly poor sight situations. If you don’t turn it on under given conditions, you hazard a motoring fine. Fort he best vision, we can recommend our Nano Headlight Restore Kit, which simply prepares weathered and dulled headlights. In addition, it offers long-term protection against dirt and environmental influences due to our unique nano-sealant. The perfect preparation for the cold seasons.

Prevent fogging of the windows.
Especially in bad weather conditions the visibility can be severely impaired and involves some risks. To counteract fogging of the windows, adjust the heating and ventilation to prevent it.

Do you want to drive longer journeys, you can spot deficiencies in advance by checking your car and reapair them. It is cruical to check the wiper blades. They must not be cracked or brittle. Especially in heavy rain or snow, properly functioning wiper blades are an important factor in ensuring your safety.
A deeper look on your tires is also important. For summer and all-seasons tires a tread depth of 3 mm schould not be untershot, for winter tires the minimum tread depth is 4 mm.
Before every long route, the car should be filled up. Heavy rain or snowfall increases the probability of accidents or stagnation. There is also the possibility of getting stuck in a traffic jam. Then a flashing fuel gauge would cause more annoyance.
Before you start check the cooling water and windscreen wiper fluid. Our windscreen antifreeze concentrate withstands temperatures down to -60°C and removes dirt, especially in winter, quickly and effectively To protect your cooling system agains rust, corrosion and lime deposits, we recommend our Radiator conditioner. Also the control of the engine oil level in advance is important to avoid further complications.

Allways a good journey from your bluechemGROUP-Team!

Advices for tire change Whether on your own or in a car workshop – we summarized the most important information for the tire change in a clear article.]]> Fri, 31 Aug 2018 10:00:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/advices-for-tire-change-7406.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/advices-for-tire-change-7406.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Twice a year most motorists ask the same question: Do I change the tires on my own or should I choose the easy way and go to a car workshop? We made a collection of some useful advices for both variants.

Tire change in a car workshop – the complete service

Whoever wants to make it easy for oneself should choose the car workshop option. The professionals not only change the tires, but also care about the correct storage of complete wheels including visual inspection for damage, tire and rim cleaning as well as increase of the tire pressure. They will also take care for the important balancing of the wheels. Note: For vehicles with direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), the visit of the car workshop is imperative because the sensors in the tires need to be checked.

Private tire change – the individual solution

With enough time and the right equipment, it is not a big challenge to change the tires on your own. Only for the balancing of the wheels, a visit to the car workshop is inevitable. The following tools are required:

  • a wheel wrench or spider wrench to loosen the wheel nuts or bolts
  • a (trolley-)jack
  • (wax) chalk for marking the wheels (for example FL for front left)
  • torque wrench to tighten the wheel nuts or bolts: The value must be adjusted precisely and can be found in the manual. After a distance of about 50 to 100 kilometers, the tightening torque should be rechecked.

During the change, you have to make sure not to forget important additional work such as visual inspection for damage and checking of the tire pressure of the mounted and the stored wheels. For the visual appearance, a thorough cleaning of the rims and a refreshment of the tires (without the cap) can be carried out, too. In addition, it is a good time to take a close look at the brakes (discs, linings), drive shift joints, shock absorbers and axle parts and to remove greasy residues. TIP: For all contact surfaces (wheel hubs, wheels) and the nuts or bolts, we recommend our Brake Anti-Seize to prevent rust and corrosion.

Changing the tires on the rim

Many vehicle owners do not replace the complete wheel, but only the tires. In this case, although a visit to a car workshop is usually inevitable, many steps can nevertheless be done individually. For example, the wheels can already be completely disassembled, cleaned and checked, so that the car workshop only changes the tire on the rim and balances the wheels. It is also possible to store the old tires individually.

Checklist for the car in autumn Increased rainfall, strong temperature variations and less daylight – our checklist reveals how the vehicle can be prepared for autumn.]]> Fri, 31 Aug 2018 08:45:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/checklist-for-the-car-in-autumn-7806.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/checklist-for-the-car-in-autumn-7806.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed When the warm summers are slowly giving way to the gloomy autumn, it is time to prepare your own car for the new conditions. In order to ensure the safety of all vehicle occupants, some essential functions should be thoroughly tested. This is because major temperature fluctuations, different types of rainfall and less brightness are a big challenge for both the driver and the vehicle. We have summarized the most important points in our checklist.

1. Light

Dense fog, frequent rainfall and faster darkness are the best reasons to thoroughly check the entire vehicle lighting. This includes the turn signals, the brake lights, the fog lights, the hazard warning system and, of course, the headlights. These are particularly important because "seeing and being seen" is one of the most important safety principles. TIP: If the headlights should be dull and weathered, which makes them less powerful, we recommend our Nano Headlight Restore Kit.

2. Frost protection

As the temperatures might fall below zero in autumn, it is important to ensure adequate frost protection. This applies, on the one hand, to the windshield washer system, so that there is always sufficient washing water, and, on the other hand, to the radiator system (G12, G11), in order to protect the engine against damage. At the same time, the condition of the cooling liquid should be checked. If it turns out that it has to be replaced, we recommend a professional radiator system cleaning in a car workshop to remove rust, mud and lime in the entire system. TIP: Regardless of the exchange of the liquid, we recommend our radiator system protection.

3. Fuel system

While it is permanently warm in summer and cold in winter, in the autumn there are sometimes great temperature variations between day and night. This leads to the formation of harmful condensation in the tank. To thoroughly remove all liquids, we recommend our fuel system and diesel system cleaning.

4. Battery

Because most vehicle failures are due to the battery in the cold months, its condition should be checked in time. In addition, it is recommended to grease the poles and to check the acidity.

5. Windshield wipers

More rainfall also means more work for the windshield wipers. In particular, the wiper blades are heavily loaded by the more frequent use and should be checked before the autumn. If they are brittle and cracked, an exchange is recommended. TIP: All other rubber parts on the vehicle should be treated with our Plastic and Rubber Refresher (Interior, Exterior) to prepare them for the cold temperatures.

6. Car glass

A sponge and an anti-fogging cloth are standard equipment and should always be placed ready to hand. In addition, it is advisable to thoroughly clean the windshield on the inside and on the outside to prevent fogging as well as glare caused by oncoming vehicles. TIP: Our Car-Glass Sealant is perfect for autumn as it has both water and dirt repellency and also reduces the risk of freezing.

7. Air conditioning

Switching on the air conditioning system makes a decisive contribution to removing fogged windows. By their operation, the moisture in the interior of the vehicle is removed, which considerably reduces the time until the fine mist of water droplets on the windshield will disappear. TIP: We recommend using our Klima Fresh to optimize the performance of the air conditioning system.

8. Paintwork

As soon as there is salt on the roads, there is increased risk of rusting the vehicle. Paintwork damages should therefore be repaired first, in order to reduce the attack area for the salt. It is also advisable to maintain the paintwork as a whole as well as all outer plastic surfaces in order to prepare them for the cold months.

9. Locks

To ensure that there is no bad awakening at cold temperatures, because the doors cannot be opened anymore, we recommend a treatment with our Special Maintenance. It prevents the ingress of water and thus the freezing.

10. Tires

For winter tires a profile depth of more than 4 mm is recommended to ensure safe driving. TIP: When changing tires, the wheel hubs can also be protected against rust and corrosion with our Brake Anti Seize.

11. Useful helpers

An ice scraper, a warm blanket, a start-up cable and a window-defroster should be available in each vehicle during the uncomfortable season.

He adds: "At our home race, the atmosphere is absolutely terrific every year. That is why we want to give it our best shot and deliver a good performance!" The team already proved in 2016 that YACO Racing was able to meet this self-imposed goal when it took second place in Sunday's race.

It is not over yet!

Currently, there are not many points on the account of YACO Racing, because so far, it simply did not work to reach the top ten. Of course, this should change until the end of the season. "We took a big step in the right direction at Zandvoort. If we stick to this course, then I am very confident we will break the curse!", says Uwe Geipel, team leader of YACO Racing, optimistically. "We are especially hopeful about the upcoming season of our young talent Simon Reicher. If he can keep his performance, then he will achieve a very good result in the ADAC TCR Germany – TOP!"

However, the gods of racing put a stop to the team from Plauen in Zandvoort (August 17 – 19, 2018). Despite intensive work on the car, it has not been enough to get the first points in the league of super sports cars in 2018. Only the fresh talent Simon Reicher was able to finish twice in the top ten in the ADAC TCR Germany.

1st race, Saturday – place 15 (qualifying 23rd)

The weekend in Zandvoort started very promising for YACO Racing. The team secured a good starting position in Saturday's qualifying session, aiming at the points from the start. With a clear goal, the green Audi worked its way forward and finally landed in 15th place. Rahel Frey commented on this result: "This was a big step in the right direction. If we stick to this course, we are well on the way back to the points."

2nd race, Sunday – place 27 (qualifying 33rd)

Autumn like weather conditions made for a less than perfect start on the second day in Zandvoort. The Sunday qualifying brought YACO Racing therefore only starting position 33, from where a tie to the results of the previous day was, of course, a great challenge. Nevertheless, the team kept fighting. However, a brake failure destroyed all hopes for points. The green Audi remained in the race until the very end but crossed the finish line only in 27th place. "It is a pity that we were slowed down so hard by these technical problems, but I am still proud of the team's performance – YACO Racing will always fight till the end!", said team leader Uwe Geipel after the race.

ADAC TCR Germany – Simon Reicher

Lying on place 11 in the overall standings before Zandvoort, the fresh talent Simon Reicher wanted to score more points and return to the top ten. Thanks to good placings on both days, he has succeeded in this project. Nevertheless, the young Austrian is not really satisfied. "It's the little things. Either something breaks or I make stupid mistakes that are not typical for me. Until everything finally fits together, that is crazy", he explains his view of the race weekend. Until the end of the season, Simon Reicher definitely wants to fight further.

As an official sponsor, the bluechemGROUP congratulates YACO Racing on the result of Zandvoort and wishes maximum success for the home race at the Sachsenring (September 07 – 09, 2018)! By the way, our bluechemGROUP Audi will be there again, which can be booked for race taxi rides.

ECOPOWER: protection and care for hybrid vehicles PRO-TEC's new product line was developed specifically for the irregular use of internal combustion engines in modern hybrid vehicles. Regular application of the highly effective products prevents problems caused by operational contamination.]]> Thu, 16 Aug 2018 12:29:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com# http://www.bluechemgroup.com# info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed The time when vehicles with internal combustion engines dominated the automotive industry is slowly but surely ending. Alternative drive concepts – electric motors, hydrogen engines, etc. – are constantly on the rise. However, many of the modern technologies are still struggling with difficulties, which is why they lack the broad recognition of the population. Only hybrid vehicles enjoy a great reputation with both drivers and manufacturers. Therefore, they can be considered the secret winners of the technological competition. Nevertheless, in spite of all the benefits that a hybrid may offer, it is not completely free of problems. Workshops are therefore well advised to include in time services for hybrid vehicles in their portfolio. PRO-TEC now has the perfect offer for this with the new product line ECOPOWER.

PRO-TEC for optimal hybrid performance

The ECOPOWER line addresses one of the biggest problems of hybrid vehicles: operational contamination in the combustion engine. Since the engine runs only irregularly, it seldom reaches the optimal operating temperature, whereby it does not work optimally. The consequences are the formation of carbonization, condensation and oil sludge and the clogging of the filter and sensor systems such as the catalytic converter or the lambda probe. The consequence of this, in turn, is a constant loss of power, an increased fuel consumption and steadily worsening exhaust emissions. The best way to avoid these problems quickly and easily is to use the vehicle chemical solutions of the new ECOPOWER product line. The TÜV-tested products gently and thoroughly liberate all affected areas (oil circuit, fuel system, exhaust system) of operational contamination. In particular, the preventive application of the ECOPOWER line has proven to be particularly effective in keeping the performance of the internal combustion engine of hybrid vehicles constant. Regular use of the range, therefore, provides comprehensive protection to preserve the performance of the hybrid permanently!

NEW: protection and care for hybrids Under the product line ECOPOWER, the bluechemGROUP presents its new guard patrol for internal combustion engines of hybrid vehicles.]]> Wed, 15 Aug 2018 14:03:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/new-protection-and-care-for-hybrids-8741.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/new-protection-and-care-for-hybrids-8741.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Slowly but surely, it should be clear to everyone: The exclusive days of the internal combustion engine are numbered. The future belongs to alternative driving concepts that rely on electricity, fuel cells, etc. They provide the right answers when it comes to rising fuel prices, increasingly stringent emission regulations and climate change.

Hybrid vehicles: the secret winners

As fast as the current progress may be, the state-of-the-art concepts for alternative driving systems all have a problem: they are not widely recognized by the public. Only hybrid technology enjoys a high reputation among both manufacturers and vehicle owners. It can be seen as the first winner of the technological race, as it is considered the most mature and practicable. However, hybrids are not completely problem-free. Especially the irregularly used internal combustion engine is threatened by constant power loss. The bluechemGROUP presents an innovative solution to this problem.

High technology with weak points?

The difficulties of the hybrid technology are quickly named: Since the internal combustion engine in a hybrid vehicle is only used irregularly, it rarely runs at full load. As a result, the temperatures for optimal combustion are not reached, which in turn favors the formation of carbonization, condensation and oil sludge, as well as the clogging of the filter and sensor systems (catalytic converter, lambda probe). The consequences are a continuous loss of power, an increase in fuel consumption and bad emissions.

Constant performance thanks to cleaning and care – KEEP THE POWER!

With the thoroughly and carefully working products of our new ECOPOWER line, the problems of the combustion engine of hybrid vehicles can be noticeably reduced. The regular use of this "guard patrol" allows a consistent level of performance as provided by the vehicle manufacturers.

The ECOPOWER products in the overview:

1. Hybrid Fuel System Cleaner:

  • Removal of all contamination resulting from the short-term operation
  • Elimination of condensation and moisture
  • Preventing the negative effects of fuel aging (sticking, gumming, etc.).
  • Lubrication of sensitive components, thus protection against rust and corrosion
  • The product is compatible with the Injection System & Air Intake System Cleaning Device Clear Flow

2. Hybrid Internal Engine Cleaner:

  • Elimination of contamination and resin in the entire oil and lubricating circuit and neutralization of harmful engine acids before the oil change
  • Thorough system cleaning allows for the optimal working of the engine oil. Thus, all components are lubricated effectively during the cold start phase, in which the engine is more frequently due to its irregular use.

3. Hybrid Oxygen Sensor and Catalytic Converter Cleaner:

  • Cleaning of the entire exhaust system, especially in the area of the catalytic converter, the lambda probe, the turbocharger and the EGR valve. Removal of contamination resulting from the irregular use of the engine.
  • For regular use, long-term protection against re-contamination

The effectiveness of all products has been repeatedly checked by in-house tests and confirmed by TÜV Thuringia. In particular, the preventive application of theECOPOWER line has proven to be particularly effective in keeping the performance of the internal combustion engine of hybrid vehicles constant. Those who trust in the guard patrol preserve the power of their hybrid!

Unfortunately, for Tobias Just and his co-pilot Sabrina Türk, the situation was less positive. On the total of 130 km, both couples put up a total of 13 special stages – the results in detail:

Friday, July 27, 2018: Traced by the past

Florian Just started the opening day of the Wartburg Rallye with a bad feeling. All too fresh were the memories of the electronics problems at the Rally Stemweder Berg, which had slowed him down at the last moment. This time, however, there was no difficulty. Florian and Marco mastered all special stages and secured a good starting position for the second day of the rally. Visibly relieved Florian said in the evening of the Friday: "The entire team has spent a lot of time in recent weeks to get the car ready to go – thank you very much!"

Things were not going well for Tobias and Sabrina. The shadows of the Rally Stemweder Berg, where the couple had a small accident, also weighed heavily on them. "It was difficult to get a feel for the car again. Everything felt incredibly unfamiliar", said Tobias. During the service after the third special stage, there was the resolution: "One of the front shock absorbers was leaking, so the handling was so spongy. Unfortunately, we could not solve this problem and had to stop early – really a pity!"

Saturday, July 28, 2018: With risk to the finish

While Tobias and Sabrina missed the second day of the race, Florian and Marco wanted to get more points. A total of eight tests were ahead of them and had to be mastered. Sovereign succeeded the two on Sunday to deliver solid performances. They even did not shy away from taking risks. "In special stage 10, the rain started unexpectedly. It was a pretty slippery ride with the slicks, but we still got the best time in our division and the fifth best time overall", they said afterwards. In the end, Florian Just and Marco Schönfelder came in second.

Current score:

  Run 1 Run 2 Run 3 Run 4 Run 5 Total
Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder Place 3 / 15 Points Place 4 / 12 Points DNF (Did not finish) Place 2 / 18 Points Place 2 / 18 Points 63 Points / Place 6
Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk Place 4 / 12 Points Place 3 / 15 Points Place 1 / 25 Points DNF (Did not finish) DNF (Did not finish) 52 Points / Place 9

 

The bluechemGROUP as an official sponsor congratulates Florian and Tobias on the results and is already looking forward to the next race on September 07/08, 2018 in Osterode at the Rally Lower Saxony.

A weekend to forget Unfortunately, the maximum commitment of YACO Racing on the Nürburgring (August 03 – 05, 2018) was not rewarded with points in the ADAC GT Masters 2018.]]> Tue, 07 Aug 2018 15:17:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/a-weekend-to-forget-8701.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/a-weekend-to-forget-8701.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Freshly strengthened and highly motivated, YACO Racing started the second half of the ADAC GT Masters 2018 after the summer break at the Nürburgring (August 03 – 05, 2018). The Eifel should finally bring the first championship points. Therefore, the team showed maximum commitment over the whole weekend – unfortunately, these efforts were not yet rewarded. "These were really two races to forget for us", says team leader Uwe Geipel and adds: "After a strong start technical problems and unfortunate touches prevented a good result – very, very annoying ..."

1st race, Saturday – DNF (qualifying 30th)

While free practice still caused optimism for the race, a technical problem put a dampener on the motivation already before the start. Since the cooling system had a fault, YACO Racing was forced to start the Saturday race from the pit lane. Self-confidently, Philip Geipel rolled up the field from behind after the start and worked his way forward, but he also took some risks. In the hard position fight, unfortunately, there was a touch in which the Audi was so badly damaged that the untimely end was inevitable.

2nd race, Sunday – place 31 (qualifying 33rd)

The second run also started with a starting position at the end of the field. Undeterred, however, Rahel Frey delivered heavy fights with her opponents to make up places as quickly as possible. She worked her way forward but affected her tires badly. After ten laps, it was over with further attacks. When Philip Geipel subsequently took the wheel, he continued the course of his colleague but was slowed down very much by a puncture. The unplanned pit stop, unfortunately, cost too much time, so he ended up in 31st place.

ADAC TCR Germany – Simon Reicher

The weekend at the Nürburgring was a bit more positive for the young talent of YACO Racing. On Saturday, Simon Reicher could confidently place in the points, on Sunday he, unfortunately, had bad luck. He explains: "I am very satisfied with my performance in the first race. Everything was right here. In the second race, unfortunately, I could not keep up with my opponents at first and then had no chance to work my way forward again due to the premature termination of the race. That is the way racing is."

As an official sponsor, the bluechemGROUP congratulates YACO Racing on the fantastic teamwork. The effort will pay off eventually! By the way, at the next race in Zandvoort (August 17 – 19, 2018), our bluechemGROUP Audi will be present again, which can be booked for race taxi rides.

Hand Cleaning Paste + Care: Only the best for the skin The new cleaning and care product by PRO-TEC removes even stubborn dirt (oil, grease, lubricants, etc.) and provides adequate skin refatting as well as long-lasting protection for the heavy demanded hands of car professionals.]]> Thu, 26 Jul 2018 15:24:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com# http://www.bluechemgroup.com# info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Some jobs in a car workshop occur almost every week. Absolute evergreen favorites are, for example, the tire change, the annual inspection or even the replacement of the brake. It is perfectly normal that you make your hands dirty. Engine oil, brake fluid or soot are just some of the things that the skin is exposed to and that leave their mark. This can cause cracks, redness or itching very quickly. In the worst case, it even causes eczema. This should be avoided urgently!

PRO-TEC presents gentle cleaning and regenerative care

To ensure that the hands of a car professional – the most important tools – are always ready for use, they should be cleaned of aggressive dirt and thoroughly hydrated after each operation. For this PRO-TEC recommends the new product Hand Cleaning Paste + Care. It contains special abrasives, which are of a high proportion of vegetable origin, and that even remove heavy soilings such as oils, greases, lubricants and dust. At the same time, ingredients made from coconut oil ensure a good moisturizing of the skin after the washing process. Hand Cleaning Paste + Care is pH-neutral, silicone and solvent-free and has been dermatologically tested with "very good". Due to the natural ingredients, also an annoying clogging of drains is excluded.

The regular handling of oil, fuel, solvents, brake fluid and acid, unfortunately, leaves a clear mark over time. Mostly, however, the signs of wear are not so big that they are perceived as disturbing. This only changes when eczema develops in a sensitive area. Then, the daily work in a car workshop can be a real pain. To avoid this, the mechatronic skin must be cleaned regularly and cared for sustainably. For this, the bluechemGROUP presents its new product Hand Cleaning Paste + Care.

Gentle, regenerative and precisely tuned to the demands of a workshop

As an all-round package, Hand Cleaning Paste + Care enables thorough cleaning as well as comprehensive care and long-lasting protection for the hands.

Regularly check the radiator system To avoid unpleasant damages and costly repairs, the cooling of the engine should be regularly checked in a car workshop.]]> Sun, 22 Jul 2018 15:37:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/regularly-check-the-radiator-system-7553.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/regularly-check-the-radiator-system-7553.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Wear is a problem, which every car owner has to face eventually. It not only affects components, but also the various liquids (for example engine and transmission oil). The radiator fluid is no exception, too: The special construction of the most modern engine generation leads to significantly higher operating temperatures and consequently a more rapid deterioration of the radiator liquid. The result is lack of lubrication, lack of thermal conductivity and reduced corrosion protection.

Better too early than too late

If the radiator fluid is no longer optimal, vehicle owners notice in most cases one of the following changes after the engine is started:

  • The cooling fan runs much more frequently.
  • The vehicle heating system is not working properly.
  • The operating temperature is permanently higher or lower than usual.

This is the right time to visit the car workshop! Once larger quantities of radiator mud, lime or scale have deposited in the radiator fluid, costly damages to pumps, valves and thermostats can arise. In the worst case, a major engine failure will occur.

Oil in radiator fluid

A defective cylinder head gasket may cause a particularly serious problem: If the engine oil mixes with the radiator fluid, a viscous liquid forms, that clogs the pumps, valves and thermostats resulting in costly repairs and total failures. The problem can be detected by looking at the cover of the radiator tank. If there are yellowish white deposits, it may be assumed that the engine oil entered the radiator system. Caution: This test may be carried out only when the engine is cold!

The quick fix

Workshops, which are equipped with our products, can perform easily and quickly a complete radiator system maintenance. In addition, the bluechemGROUP offers with the radiator conditioner a solution that extends the life of the cooling water significantly.

Tips for cleaning rims For many car owners, they are the absolute highlight of the car: The rims. We collected some tips, how they stay an eye-catcher.]]> Sat, 21 Jul 2018 12:01:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/tips-for-cleaning-rims-7505.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/tips-for-cleaning-rims-7505.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed To visit the car wash regularly is part of the standard maintenance program for most vehicle owners. However, everyone setting the value on the external appearance of a car knows that the rims will not be completely clean by this automatic process. To remove the often thick layer of brake dust, salt and dirt thoroughly, a little manual work is required. We have collected some tips on how the rims will become an optical eye-catcher again:

Step by step to a new glow:

  1. In order to protect the material of the rims, an acid-free cleaner should be chosen.
  2. Spray the product extensively and let it act briefly.
  3. Clean the rims with a wash mitt. For the gaps, a rim brush is recommended. The hard to reach areas can be cleaned with a special rim brush.
  4. Rinse the rims thoroughly with clear water and then dry them with a cloth.
  5. By applying a rim sealant, recontamination can be prevented, which significantly reduces the future cleaning.

According to this program, the rims will shine again in a new light, they are protected against environmental influences and new contaminants and they are prepared for all trips!

Exhaust System Cleaning Increased emissions and higher fuel consumption – the exhaust system should be cleaned regularly of operational deposits.]]> Wed, 18 Jul 2018 12:58:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/exhaust-system-cleaning-7633.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/exhaust-system-cleaning-7633.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed It is a problem that affects every vehicle: operational contamination in the entire exhaust system. Over time, carbon residues accumulate in the complete exhaust system (lambda probe, catalytic converter, turbocharger, EGR valve etc.) and lead to a malfunction of the affected components. Vehicles that are used for short distances or that are equipped with exhaust gas recirculation, turbocharger and direct injection have this problem more often, as the engine rarely reaches the required self-cleaning temperatures. A dirty lambda probe is unable to determine reliably the required amount of fuel, which leads to an increased consumption then. A dirty catalytic converter causes higher emissions.

Cleaning and maintenance of the entire exhaust system

With the Oxygen Sensor & Catalytic Converter Cleaner of bluechemGROUP, the complete exhaust system can be cleaned effectively, quickly and preventively. The high-performance product removes any deposits and prevents recontamination when used regularly. Before refueling, it should be filled in the tank every three months, where it then acts autonomously. The Oxygen Sensor & Catalytic Converter Cleaner is suitable for all types of catalytic converters of petrol / diesel engines and hybrid vehicles. Particularly serious contamination of the catalytic converter should be eliminated with our DPF/Catalyst Cleaner.

Advantages of the exhaust system cleaning:

  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Recovered engine performance
  • Reduced emissions of harmful exhaust gases
  • Prevention of engine management problems, which are caused by an excessively high degree of contamination

A quarter of a century with PRO-TEC Karl-Heinz Raabe, self-employed entrepreneur from Berlin, Germany, and owner of “Autotechnik Karl-Heinz Raabe”, has worked for more than 26 years with PRO-TEC. How he experienced the time with the highly effective brand, he describes in a detailed interview.]]> Tue, 17 Jul 2018 11:13:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com# http://www.bluechemgroup.com# info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Mr. Raabe, you started working with PRO-TEC in 1992. How did it happen then?

That was nothing special at all. I have seen in a Berlin newspaper the simple job advertisement "Independent Partner wanted" and wrote a message to the specified address. I cannot say exactly what it was, but something about this advertisement made me incredibly curious. Therefore, I got in touch with PRO-TEC and was invited to the basic training in Leutenberg.

What happened there?

As part of a very detailed introduction, all the central products of the range were presented and their mode of action impressively demonstrated. The presentation was very convincing and really got me excited. I wanted to start selling immediately!

And that is, what you did?

That is right! I left Leutenberg with a car full of products and was highly motivated. As soon as possible, I wanted to try out what I had learned and do my own training. Especially because of the customer contact, I was particularly excited.

Why was that so important to you?

Because I think a customer relationship should not end right after the sale. The personal care, the direct contact and the regular conversation are in my opinion very important. This basic idea also runs through the workshop concept of PRO-TEC, which is why I felt well cared for here from the beginning.

How would you describe yourself as a PRO-TEC partner?

I have always behaved as I would imagine the perfect account manager: unobtrusive, factual, helpful, consistent, straightforward. With this recipe, I have always been well received by all my customers.

A recipe for success that has proven itself for 26 years.

Right, and I am very proud of that.

You deserved that. Mr. Raabe, thank you very much for the good cooperation! PRO-TEC wishes you all the best for your retirement!

One who has accompanied this success story almost from the beginning is Karl-Heinz Raabe, an independent entrepreneur from Berlin. With “Autotechnik Karl-Heinz Raabe”, founded in 1992, he has been a strong partner of the bluechemGROUP for 26 years. He will retire at the end of 2018. He described his experiences in this interview.

Mr. Raabe, you have been working together with PRO-TEC for 26 years. Can you say in one sentence what excites you most?

What I like about PRO-TEC is that I do not just sell very good products, but also stand in constant independent and responsible dialogue with customers. I think it is great that the communication does not end after the sale, but the personal support and the direct contact are of central importance.

How did you come to work with PRO-TEC?

It all started in 1992: Back then, I saw the job advertisement "Independent Partner Wanted" in a daily newspaper and this advertisement immediately caught my interest. I got in touch with PRO-TEC and was invited to Leutenberg for the basic training. There, the central products of the product range were extensively presented and their mode of action impressively demonstrated. The presentation was very convincing and really got me excited. I wanted to start selling immediately!

What happened after the training?

I left Leutenberg with a car full of products and was really looking forward to the first customer contact. I wanted to try out what I had learned as quickly as possible and start my own trainings or demonstrations - and that is exactly what I did.

Which strategy did you follow?

I had two basic ideas: On the one hand, I knew that intensive customer relationships are the key to success. On the other hand, I also wondered how I would imagine the perfect account manager. That is why I always behave the way I want to be treated: unobtrusive, objective, helpful, consistent, straightforward. With this recipe, I have always been well received by all my customers.

A recipe for success that has proven itself for 26 years.

Right, and I am very proud of that.

Then we come to the last question. You will retire at the end of the year. What are your plans for the time after PRO-TEC?

As an independent entrepreneur with 26 years of professional experience, I am used to always having something to do. Therefore, I will not stop, but I will spend my time in the house and the garden, going about my hobbies, cycling and enjoying my retirement. I have never regretted the step into self-employment, but now I am looking forward to the time afterwards.

Mr. Raabe, the bluechemGROUP thanks you for the 26 years of cooperation and wishes you all the best for your retirement!

Internal Engine Cleaning Power losses and higher fuel consumption are just two of the reasons for the regular cleaning of the entire oil and lubrication circuit.]]> Wed, 11 Jul 2018 08:00:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/internal-engine-cleaning-7574.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/internal-engine-cleaning-7574.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Operational contaminations, deposits, and carbonization accrue eventually in every oil and lubrication circuit, regardless of whether it is a modern diesel or a high-performance petrol vehicle. However, this process is completely normal, but certain factors such as short trips or frequent driving in city traffic can accelerate it. The contamination and deposits interrupt the combustion process in the engine, which leads to many negative implications:

  • Power losses
  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Increased risk of wear
  • Increased emissions

Fresh oil in a clean engine

The solution to the described problems is a thorough cleaning of the engine at the time of the oil change. Therefore, the bluechemGROUP offers a product that removes all contamination and deposits keeping them in suspense, so they can be completely flushed out with the used oil. If the system is then filled with new engine oil, it does not mix with the rest of the waste oil. Thus, the smooth operation of the engine is ensured, which has several advantages:

  • Improved compression values, and thus better engine performance
  • Optimized oil and fuel consumption
  • Lowered wear of units
  • Extended lifespan of the catalytic converter
  • Reduced exhaust emission

The Internal Engine Cleaning is added to the used motor oil before oil change. Subsequently, the engine must run for about 15 minutes at idle. Thereafter, the oil and filter changes can be carried out in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. We answer all questions under technics@bluechemgroup.com.

Clear win for the Meissen Hornets The second race, the home race in Meissen, Germany, of this year's Speedway Team Cup (July 08, 2018) ended with a win for our PRO-TEC team.]]> Mon, 09 Jul 2018 13:53:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/clear-win-for-the-meissen-hornets-8607.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/clear-win-for-the-meissen-hornets-8607.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Green light in the last second: It almost did not happen again that the German Speedway star Martin Smolinski would start in the Speedway Team Cup for the Meissen Hornets. After the final examination, the doctors gave their okay for the race on Sunday (July 08, 2018) in the Meissen home stadium. "We were really lucky that Martin had recovered so quickly after his two crashes that he was able to support us. He has impressively proven his skills on the track. He truly belongs to the top international elite!" praises Ronny Weis, our PRO-TEC driver, the performance of Martin Smolinski.

A clear decision

With a total of 44 points and a clear lead, the Meissen Hornets won in front of about 1,000 enthusiastic fans. In second place landed the MSC Olching with 35 points.

Final, here we come! Ronny Weis, our PRO-TEC rider, took second place together with Valentin Grobauer at the Speedway Pair Championship in Nagyhalasz (June 30, 2018).]]> Wed, 04 Jul 2018 12:02:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/final-here-we-come-8598.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/final-here-we-come-8598.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Thursday, June 28, 2018, somewhere in Saxony: Actually, Ronny Weis just wanted to enjoy the evening after a hard day of work when suddenly his phone rang. At the end of the line, the DMSB, the German Motor Sports Federation, told him of an interesting opportunity. Since Martin Smolinski, one of Germany's best-known Speedway riders, could not participate in the semi-finals of the Pairs Speedway European Championship in Nagyhalasz due to injury, they asked whether Ronny Weis could take this place. This was, of course, a very short-term request – after all, the race would take place on June 30, 2018 – but it was a very attractive opportunity. In short: Ronny Weis did not hesitate and said yes!

Six opponents, six runs, a shock to the start

After a long drive from Meissen, Germany, to Nagyhalasz, Hungary, the event started punctually at 15:30. Since Ronny Weis knew the track, he had no difficulty finding the optimal setup during the short training before the race so that he was well prepared. Seven pairs from Latvia, Germany, Hungary, Ukraine, Norway, Slovakia and Finland participated in the sporting challenge. Ronny Weis and his partner Valentin Grobauer competed against the favorites from Latvia in the first of their six heats. After the race, our PRO-TEC driver said resignedly: "We had absolutely no chance. The Latvians relentlessly put us in third and fourth place – they hit us hard." The mood was a bit depressed after that, but Ronny Weis and Valentin Grobauer did not give up. In the next four races, they managed to score points and fight back. "We worked well together and prevailed – that was perfect teamwork!"

The last runs decide

Shortly before the end of the event, the team coach Sascha Dörner turned to the German team with the result of a quick analysis. The points allocation was in a way that a podium finish was within reach. However, Ronny Weis and Valentin Grobauer would have to score in the last two races. The opponents were the strong Ukrainians and the engaged Hungarians. "To be honest, we did not have any great expectations that we would really succeed in reaching our goal, but what can I say ... we did it!", said Ronny Weis proudly. With the results place 1 / 2 and place 1 / 3, the German team took the decisive points and landed in second place (behind Latvia and before Ukraine). Thus, Ronny Weis and Valentin Grobauer qualified for the grand finale on September 1, 2018, in the Danish town of Broust!

The bluechemGROUP congratulates on this fantastic success!

Air Conditioning Service Air conditioning needs regular maintenance to work optimally and provide both pleasant and germ-free fresh air inside the vehicle.]]> Tue, 03 Jul 2018 13:42:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/air-conditioning-service-8486.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/air-conditioning-service-8486.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed No one who has ever come to know the comfort of having his or her own car with air conditioning would want to trade again. Having the desired interior temperature just a short time after starting the journey is an amenity that every motorist appreciates more than anything else. In addition, studies have shown that extreme temperatures significantly reduce both concentration and responsiveness, which in turn means that air conditioning also improves the safety of all vehicle occupants. Therefore, the system should always operate optimally and provide fresh air. Unfortunately, the air conditioning is not one of the maintenance-free elements of a vehicle.

Why do cars need a regular air conditioning service?

Air conditioning is in most cases set to work at full power. That means that very warm and very cold air constantly meet each other. This creates condensation, which in turn causes moisture to accumulate in the air conditioning. From a certain amount, this can no longer be dissipated and remains in the system. The resulting water pools and the simultaneously tropical climate with high humidity form the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and microorganisms. The consequences of this are not only unpleasant odors and a poorer performance of the air conditioning but also risks for allergy sufferers and possibly costly repairs, because the excretions of the germs are aggressive as acid and attack the system. A regular air conditioning service including cleaning and disinfection is therefore highly recommended.

Air conditioning service of the bluechemGROUP

1. Thorough cleaning: Air Condition Foam Cleaner

In the first step of the air conditioning service, the entire air conditioning system should be thoroughly cleaned of all dirt. Especially the evaporator and the condenser need special attention. Once the system has been cleaned, the air conditioning system can work optimally and deploy its full cooling capacity.

2. Against bacteria and germs: Air Condition Disinfectant

After cleaning, in the second step of the air conditioning service, the complete disinfection of the entire system, in particular, the ventilation ducts, is carried out. All bacteria, fungi, viruses and other microorganisms are eliminated without leaving any residue, so that the air conditioning system only supplies fresh, clean air. The risk of respiratory and allergic reactions is significantly reduced.

3. Fresh air: Klima Fresh

At the conclusion of the comprehensive air conditioning service, all remaining unpleasant odors are removed. After the application, there is a pleasant smell throughout the whole vehicle interior.

The advantages of the air conditioning service of the bluechemGROUP at a glance:

  • Pleasant indoor climate and highest air quality in the car
  • Optimal performance of the air conditioning
  • Best health and hygiene, eliminating 99.9 percent of microorganisms
  • Tested material compatibility of all products
  • No aggressive cleaning components in the formulations

To be honored for this self-concept is a great recognition of our work, with which we want to make a decisive contribution to the sustainability of Germany!"

In-house research and development

The Research & Development department of the bluechemGROUP works every day on the development of highly effective formulations and the optimization of existing products. The head of the department has been for more than ten years the graduate chemist Jens Möller. Together with his team and a few external partners, he continuously deals with various issues in the lubricant and additive sectors. "Research plays an extremely important role for the bluechemGROUP. The Research & Development department continuously monitors the automotive industry and in particular the field of vehicle chemistry. We collect relevant information from current specialist literature, exchanges information with universities and institutes, etc., in order to be always up-to-date with the latest technology. Together with sales and product management, we then develop new and innovative ideas", says Jens Möller.

"In 2018, we want to at least build on our last year's success. However, of course, we also keep an eye on the victory!”, reveals Ronny Weis. "When we had to find out shortly before the race (June 03, 2018) that Martin Smolinski could not start due to his obligations in the World Cup, we were bothering a lot. Where should we find a suitable replacement so quickly?" After an almost sleepless night with many telephone calls, the redeeming news came: Tim Wunderer, a junior from MSC Olching, agreed to stand in for Martin Smolinski. "That was not the optimal starting grid, but our goal was still to reach at least third place so that the overall victory remains possible!"

Many heat wins, many points – successful start!

Ronny Weis, Richard Geyer, Tim Wunderer and Lukas Wegner – that was the team line-up for the Meissen Hornets at their first race in the Speedway Team-Cup 2018 in Landshut. With a clear goal and an unbroken spirit, our PRO-TEC riders gave their all on the track. They delivered fast starts, thrilling sprints and clever overtaking maneuvers. For this commitment, they were rewarded with a total of 32 running points and the 2nd place. On rank 3 and 4 landed the Güstrow Torros and the Landshut Young Devils. The victory went to the champions of the past season, the Black Forest Eagles Berghaupten. Ronny Weis commented on the result: "I am so happy we are still in the race for the title.

With these words, Teijo Mäkelä (CEO of Bluechem Group Finland OY) comments on the process that finally led to the cooperation with Euromasters Finland. Until the European tire and car service company agreed to cooperate, some convincing work was necessary.

The first contact

Teijo Mäkelä recalls the beginnings of the cooperation with Euromasters Finland: "It was more of a coincidence that marks the beginning of this success story in 2017. At that time, a friend of mine wanted to have the annual checkup of his car carried out in a Euromasters workshop. He had brought along some PRO-TEC products that the mechanics should use. The workshop, however, vehemently refused. It could finally be convinced to give at least the Engine Flush a chance. The result impressed the experienced mechanics so much that their further interest in PRO-TEC was aroused. After my friend told me about it, I contacted the workshop."

With perseverance to the goal

Although he already had a foot in the door, the next steps were not a walk in the park for Teijo Mäkelä: "When I called the workshop where my friend was, there was still a bit of skepticism, which is why I was invited first to do a product presentation. Of course, I loved doing that because I was determined to convince everyone at Euromasters Finland of the high quality of the bluechemGROUP products. After I managed this at the workshop with excellence, I was referred to the regional manager. Here again, I have carried out a demonstration, which was also convincing all along the line. Thereby, I had reached my goal, because the approval for PRO-TEC was finally granted. The products are now welcome in every Finnish Euromasters workshop. In the meantime, the range is even used for Ferrari services!"

Rally Team Just @ Stemweder Berg A hard fought second place and an unfortunate race breakup – that is the result of the 4th weekend (June 15/16, 2018) of the ADAC Rally Masters.]]> Wed, 20 Jun 2018 13:15:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/rally-team-just--stemweder-berg-8594.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/rally-team-just--stemweder-berg-8594.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed What would the fourth race weekend of the ADAC Rally Masters offer to the Rally Team Just? That was the big question before the ADAC Rally Stemweder Berg (June 15/16, 2018). In the past two years, Florian and Tobias had experienced both a double victory (2016) and an unfortunate double race breakup here. Of course, this season, both hoped to build on past successes. The Rally Team Just wanted to go all the way to the front again on the altogether 160 test kilometers, which cover both narrow fields and farm tracks as well as wide county roads.

Friday, June 15, 2018: light and shadow

On the first day of the Rally Stemweder Berg in Lübbecke, 40 km north of Bielefeld, four special stages over almost 37 kilometers had to be mastered. Tobias Just was highly motivated by this challenge. His division victory at the Saxony Rally provided the right drive, with which he was able to quickly gain the lead. His brother Florian came less easily into the race. A much-needed spare part – he had problems with the engine electronics in Saxony – could not be delivered in time, so he had to use a loaner, which he received locally. Without test kilometers, he went on the track and could only reach 5th place.

Saturday, June 16, 2018: luck and misfortune

As unfavorable as Friday began for Florian, as optimistically started the second day at Stemweder Berg. Already in the morning, he was able to catch up and to reach even the 2nd place in Division 5 in the afternoon. With a good lead, he found himself in a comfortable situation in which a podium position was very likely. Unfortunately, at this point, electronic problems started again. A cable break in the engine wiring harness, which could not be completely repaired in service, caused the lead to melt continuously, as repairs were required between the stages. However, in the end, it was enough for Florian Just and Marco Schönfelder to reach 2nd place in Division 5.

Unfortunately, Tobias Just was less lucky. While at the beginning of Saturday he could keep his lead and even extend it, the race came to an abrupt end in the afternoon. With a sure victory in mind, he made a minor mistake in the ninth special stage. He underestimated a combination of turns and got off the track. "Of course we knew about the roll split here, but I was sure a clean lane would be created by the other teams ahead of us. I was wrong", he explained afterwards. In the incident broke a tie rod of the Citroen C2 R2 max, which is why the race for Tobias Just and Sabrina Turk ended prematurely.

Current score:

  Run 1 Run 2 Run 3 Run 4 Total
Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder Place 3 / 15 Points Place 4 / 12 Points DNF (Did not finish) Place 2 / 18 Points 45 Points / Place 8
Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk Place 4 / 12 Points Place 3 / 15 Points Place 1 / 25 Points DNF (Did not finish) 52 Points / Place 5

 

The bluechemGROUP as an official sponsor congratulates Florian and Tobias on the results and is already looking forward to the next race on July 27 / 28, 2018 in Eisenach at the Wartburg Rally.

It did not take long for my enthusiasm to be so big that I decided to become a professional racing driver." With bright eyes, Andreas Hvid Sørensen explains how he came to rallying. For the first time this year, the young Dane competes in the entry-level series Speed Nord Klubrally with his Opel Corsa GSi. He is supported by PRO-TEC, the high-quality brand of the bluechemGROUP.

Andreas Hvid Sørensen deliberately chose the Speed Nord Klubrally for his debut in rallying. "This race series is aimed specifically at beginners. In the seven events, you can perfectly gain first experiences that are important for all future challenges." He has already reached the podium several times in previous events together with his co-driver Thomas Hvid Sørensen. "The overall victory in my division is definitely possible!", he explains proudly.

Hard work pays off YACO Racing has made amazing progress at the Red Bull Ring (June 8-10, 2018) and has come much closer to reaching the points in the ADAC GT Masters 2018.]]> Thu, 14 Jun 2018 14:45:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/hard-work-pays-off-8590.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/hard-work-pays-off-8590.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed There is a light at the end of the tunnel for YACO Racing. At the race on the Red Bull Ring (June 08-10, 2018) the team from the Saxon Plauen has improved a lot again. "The commitment of the last few months has finally paid off", explains Uwe Geipel, team leader of YACO Racing. "We are getting closer and closer to the first points in the ADAC GT Masters 2018. The reason for this is our constant work on the setup of our Audi. We have adjusted the shock absorbers since Most, designed the underbody perfectly aerodynamically and improved many other technical details." Responsible for this fine adjustment is the new race engineer Gernot Ludwigs (31). The trained automotive engineer has already successfully implemented several racing projects for Audi and is considered an extremely meticulous worker. Uwe Geipel on this: "In the 2018 season, the demands on vehicle precision have once again increased. To be able to cope with this fact, the thorough data analysis is the alpha and omega. We are very glad that with Gernot we have found someone who is well versed in this field!"

1st race, Saturday – place 16 (qualifying 22nd)

Thanks to an additional test day at the Red Bull Ring, YACO Racing felt perfectly prepared for the first race day. This day led to the fact that another error was corrected, which enabled the Audi to improve its lap times by a whole second. Therefore, Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel went optimistically into the race. Already at qualifying, they were able to achieve a much better result. From position 22, they fought their way forward in the final race and finally reached a solid 16th place. "After the setbacks of the past, we are more than satisfied with this result. We move on – thank you for the great team effort!", they commented after the race.

2nd race, Sunday – place 21 (qualifying 31st)

As good as the preparations may be; a creeping flat tire is still a knockout criterion for a good lap time in qualifying. With this problem, Rahel Frey had to fight and could, therefore, reach only the 31st place as starting position. The subsequent run was overshadowed by rain. "Actually, such races are one of our strengths, but this time we lacked some self-confidence. We changed the tires at an early stage and thus lost crucial minutes – very annoying!", summed up Uwe Geipel. In the end, it was rank 21 for Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel.

ADAC TCR Germany – Simon Reicher

His home race at the Red Bull Ring was certainly not as supposed to be for local hero Simon Reicher. He was able to present a good performance, but technical difficulties prevented a good placement. On Saturday, he crossed the finish line in 10th place, on Sunday it was only the 11th place. "Of all races it was the one in my homeland, where I dropped back to ninth place in the championship. And even if we have learned a lot again, we have to analyze our opportunities until the next race at the Nürburgring, take further tests and see that we get back on course", commented Simon Reicher on his weekend at the Red Bull Ring.

As an official sponsor, the bluechemGROUP congratulates YACO Racing on the constant progress. We are looking forward to the next events! By the way, our bluechemGROUP Audi will again be present at the Nürburgring (August 03-05, 2018), which can be booked for race taxi rides.

Rally Team Just @ Saxony Rally Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk and Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder returned from the third round of the ADAC Rallye Masters (May 25 / 26, 2018) with mixed feelings.]]> Thu, 31 May 2018 15:11:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/rally-team-just--saxony-rally-8574.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/rally-team-just--saxony-rally-8574.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed The AvD Saxony Rally (May 25 / 26, 2018) in Zwickau, Germany, ended last Saturday in front of an enthusiastic audience and in brilliant sunshine. A total of 96 teams competed at the almost 130 km long circuit with its 12 special stages, which has been established in the ADAC Rally Masters for many years. The rally is characterized by numerous fast and demanding, but also risky sections. The highlights are the city tour over the "Glück-auf"-bridge, the circuit "Stangengrün" and the royal test "Plohn" with about 19 km in length through forests, villages and small agricultural paths.
The Rally Team Just with Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk and Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder wanted to continue the successes of the last races for the third round of the ADAC Rally Masters. The summary:

Friday, May 25, 2018: a neck-and-neck race

Despite considerable competition (21 other participants), Florian and Tobias dominated the opening day of the AvD Saxony Rally in Division 5. Three of the four special stages finishes Tobias in his Citroen C2 R2 max with the division best time. Close behind is every time his teammate Florian, also on the way with a Citroen C2 R2 max. In SS1, the older brother even manages to be a little bit faster. The Friday in Zwickau, Saxony, ended with second place for Florian Just and his co-driver Marco Schönfelder and first place for Tobias Just and his co-driver Sabrina Türk – excellent prospects for the following race day!

Saturday, May 26, 2018: Early decision

The second day of the AvD Saxony Rally also started with an exciting head-to-head race between the Just brothers. Florian and Tobias were in second and third place up to the eighth special stage. However, they fought their way forward until finally after WP8, they ranked 1st and 2nd. Then the unthinkable happened. On the way to the next special stage, Florian's car does not work anymore. Any repair measures are useless. The electronics strike and stop the whole engine. Unfortunately, the race, which started so promisingly, was over early for Florian Just and Marco Schönfelder. Things looked quite different with Tobias Just and Sabrina Türk. They put on a mad final spurt and got the division victory with a clear lead.

Current score:

  Run 1 Run 2 Run 3 Total
Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder Place 3 / 15 Points Place 4 / 12 Points DNF (Did not finish) 27 Points / Place 7
Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk Place 4 / 12 Points Place 3 / 15 Points Place 1 / 25 Points 52 Points / Place 3

 

The bluechemGROUP as an official sponsor congratulates Florian and Tobias on the results and is already looking forward to the next race on June 15 / 16, 2018 in Lübbecke at the Rally Stemweder Berg.

ADAC GT Masters 2018: Spielberg The third race weekend in this year's League of Super Sports Cars (June 08 – 10, 2018) is both a curse and a blessing for YACO Racing.]]> Mon, 28 May 2018 12:42:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/adac-gt-masters-2018-spielberg-8571.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/adac-gt-masters-2018-spielberg-8571.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed While some are looking forward to the next weekend (June 08 – 10, 2018) of the ADAC GT Masters 2018, the enthusiasm of the other drivers of YACO Racing is rather small. The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, offers both advantages and disadvantages for the riders of the team from Plauen.

Philip Geipel and Rahel Frey: Respect for the most Audi unfriendly course of the season

Many long straights, numerous height differences – the Red Bull Ring has never been known to be an easy track for Audi drivers in the League of Super Sports Cars. Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel know that very well. In the past few years, they have always managed to score points here, but the way there was never a breeze. "We have to try to be in the lead in qualifying. With a good starting position in midfield, we have optimal conditions for a place in the points", says Philip Geipel confidently. Rahel Frey adds: "And of course we will be waiting for mistakes of our competitors. Each carelessness of others is our chance to overtake. We are a team never to be underestimated!"

Simon Reicher: Consistently to the goal

For the newest member of YACO Racing, the friendly Austrian Simon Reicher, the Red Bull Ring is an absolute highlight in the racing calendar of the ADAC TCR Germany. He himself says about the track: "My grandparents' house is only a stone's throw away from the track. Therefore, I know the Red Bull Ring very well and I am really looking forward to driving here. My ultimate goal is to finally turn my previous good performances into points!"

As an official sponsor, the bluechemGROUP wishes the team YACO Racing the maximum success!

PRO-TEC eliminates engine knocking René Löffler, a service consultant at Hofmann's Autohaus Coburg (Germany), explains how a striking problem with a Toyota Land Cruiser J 120 was solved quickly, simply and cost-effectively by cleaning the diesel system with PRO-TEC and the Clear Flow.]]> Thu, 17 May 2018 14:44:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com# http://www.bluechemgroup.com# info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed "Our customers and we are more than satisfied with the products of the PRO-TEC brand. We use the products daily in our workshop and can give a lot of positive feedback!", René Löffler, a service consultant of Hofmann's Autohaus Coburg (Germany), summarizes his experiences with PRO-TEC. A special case he remembers particularly well:

"The vehicle introduced to us was a Toyota Land Cruiser J 120 with a 1KDFTV engine. It was obvious that there was a particularly acute problem here because you could hear the knocking sounds more than clearly. As a solution, we carried out a diesel system cleaning with the PRO-TEC Diesel System Super Clean and the Clear Flow.

We proceeded as follows: First, we connected the Injection System & Air Intake System Cleaning Device Clear Flow to the supply and return of the fuel system. After that, the engine was idling for about 30 minutes only with the pure cleaner. This was meant to thoroughly liberate the injectors of all operational deposits. We documented the process with the Toyota GTS tester.

The results were very convincing: following the cleaning, the diagnostic device showed an extremely improved smoothness of the return flow as well as a clean behavior of the injectors. The customer also found that the engine was running much quieter, the fuel consumption had dropped noticeably and the Land Cruiser was less smoking. This finding was confirmed in another test with the GTS tester after 10,000 kilometers driven. PRO-TEC provided the perfect solution for this difficult case!"

René Löffler on the diesel system cleaning with the Diesel System Super Clean and the Clear Flow:

"It was a Toyota Land Cruiser J 120 with a 1KDFTV engine that came to our car workshop. The problem of the vehicle was very noticeable because you could hear the nail sounds more than clearly. As a countermeasure, we carried out a thorough diesel system cleaning. For this, we used the Diesel System Super Clean as well as the Injection System & Air Intake System Cleaning Device Clear Flow. We connected the supply and the return of the fuel system with the Clear Flow and let the engine idle for about 30 minutes only with the pure cleaner. Our goal was to achieve a thorough cleaning of the injectors in this way. We documented the entire process with the Toyota GTS tester.

The diagnostic device showed an extreme improvement in the smoothness of the return flow as well as in the behavior of the injectors following the cleaning. The customer assured us that the running behavior has calmed down considerably, that his fuel consumption has dropped noticeably and that there is less smoke coming from the exhaust. This finding was confirmed in another test after 10,000 kilometers driven, which proves the sustainable effect of bluechemGROUP products!"

While at first, he was riding exclusively on two wheels in trial sports, in 1995 he switched to rallying after attending a rally on the Oschenberg near Bindlach. In the beginning, he relied on a Fiat Ritmo 105 TC. After some vehicle changes, he finally landed with his white BMW M3 Compact (built in 1995), a former car for mountainous terrain, which was specially rebuilt for the rally track.

Vehicle details:

  • M3 engine with 2,990 cc and 6 cylinders
  • 299 hp power
  • 5-speed Dogbox racing gearbox

In his long career, Werner Mühl has achieved numerous successes. He won several times the club championship, triumphed as regional team champion, won the BMV championships and achieved the NOO Cup. Werner Mühl has been supported by the bluechemGROUP since the 2018 season. He explains: "Above all, we are impressed by the Octane Premium, which is always used by us making a noticeable difference. Due to the product, we sometimes have time differences in tenths on the special stages. In addition, the Octane Premium provides one or the other horsepower and a better response throughout the rev range. Often these little things make for the desired success in a race!"

We look forward to an exciting season with Werner Mühl and wish maximum success on all scheduled dates!

After the icy tracks at the Rally Saarland-Palatinate, the Rally Team Just here awaited the usual grippy ground on which it could prove its skills perfectly. Florian had planned to build on his results from the last race. Tobias, on the other hand, wanted to show that he could also reach the front with the new car. Both pilots successfully reached their goals. In the end, Florian finished in 4th place and Tobias in 3rd place in Division 5.

Friday, May 4, 2018: Battle with the gravel

A total of 70 starters competed on the first day of the Rally Around the Sulinger Bärenklaue to face the demanding 30 special stages. In Division 5, which also includes Tobias and Florian Just, there were a total of 14 teams. For Florian and his co-driver Marco Schönfelder the opening day started very successfully. Despite limited visibility from the low sun and the dust on the gravel passages, for which the course is very well known, the duo secured the desired times and placed fourth. Florian's brother Tobias Just and his co-driver Sabrina Türk also had a good start. They reached Top 3 times in the special stages and finished third at the end of the day.

Saturday, May 5, 2018: Time chase

On the final day of the second round of the ADAC Rally Masters 2018, the remaining 120 special stage kilometers had to be mastered. Once again, the route led through the famous IVG site, a former industrial area with countless lanes and alleyways that run partly through houses and halls and are already overgrown with moss and grass. Florian started again with good times and was able to reduce the gap to his brother constantly. Shortly before the end, however, he had slight problems with his accelerator pedal, which ultimately cost too much time. He finished fourth and got 12 points. Tobias and Sabrina faced their own fight against time. From special stage to special stage, they moved up towards the second place but ultimately had to give up by 1.5 seconds. Therefore, it was rank 3 with 15 points.

Current score:

  Run 1 Run 2 Total
Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder Place 3 / 15 Points Place 4 / 12 Points 27 Points / Place 5
Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk Place 4 / 12 Points Place 3 / 15 Points 27 Points / Place 5

 

The bluechemGROUP as an official sponsor congratulates Florian and Tobias on the results and looks forward to the next run on May 25-26, 2018 in Zwickau at the AvD-Saxony Rally.

Checklist for the car in summer High temperatures and long holiday trips – the summer is a very special load for the car.

In particular, high temperatures and long trips in the holidays are a huge load. Who wants to prepare now, is well advised with our checklist:

1. Auto glass

The fine dust and dirt particles that accumulate on the windshield are a constant companion in the warm summer months. To avoid that they have a negative impact on the visibility, the wipers should always be fully functional. If the rubber is no longer optimal, a change will be necessary. In addition, it is advisable to thoroughly clean the windshield on the inside and on the outside before summer and to add the windshield water a special additive. TIP: For the windshield, a sealant is recommended in addition to cleaning.

2. Interior

Everyone who has waived the interior cleaning in spring should clean the upholstery thoroughly by now. The same applies to leather seats, because the change from summer heat and the air conditioning is a major load that requires special care. All plastic surfaces should be treated with an antistatic agent, so that less dust and dirt can accumulate. The door seals can also be prepared for the coming heat with a special care.

3. Paintwork

In order that the car reliably shines in the sun and not only dully shimmers throughout the whole summer, we recommend a paintwork sealant.

4. Air conditioner

If not done in spring, it is recommended to change the interior or pollen filter. TIP: Especially in case of allergies, there should be fresh air in the air conditioning.

5. Engine

The first step after opening the hood is the thorough inspection of all hoses and lines for cracks. Subsequently, the operating fluids (brake fluid) and the battery should be checked. The engine oil should be controlled and if necessary refilled. TIP: If an oil change is performed, a thorough internal engine cleaning is recommended. The new oil can be optimized with our Oil Booster or our Nano Engine Protection. The radiator fluid is the next point on the checklist. It should also be replaced or refilled if necessary. TIP: Our radiator conditioner is ideal for extra protection.

6. Fuel system

In particular, the long holiday trips are a good reason to not skip this part of the vehicle. To remove operational contamination and any condensation from the entire fuel system, we advise our special products for petrol and diesel vehicles. TIP: A cleaning of the exhaust system ensures some extra care.

7. Wheels

The last point on the checklist are the wheels (including the spare). It is particularly important to check the tread depth, which should be not less than 4mm. It is also recommended to check the tire pressure.

For questions about anything on our checklist, we are available under technics@bluechemgroup.com!

However, the second round, the so-called “jury list”, has only been reached by 742 of them – and the bluechemGROUP is one of them! For us as a "Company of Excellence", this award is a renewed recognition of our overall business success, which is based on efficient management as well as taking on responsibility, dedication and innovation. Whether we will ultimately be awarded the price, will be decided in July 2018. The official award ceremony will take place in September this year.

More than numbers, innovations and jobs

The “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes” as a tradition-rich competition, which has been committed to the motto "healthy medium-sized companies – strong economy – more jobs" since 1994, takes place this year under the motto "Shaping the Future". The participants are judged not only based on their corporate figures but also holistically in their complex role in society. Innovative action and sustainable work are therefore of enormous importance. Especially in the areas of "overall development of the company", "creation / securing of jobs and training places", "modernization and innovation", "engagement in the region" and "service and customer proximity, marketing", the nominees are among the entrepreneurial elite in Germany.

The bluechemGROUP is proud to be in the last round of this prestigious business award again!

However, the biggest highlights were the new combustion chamber cleaning system Carbon X, the vehicle preparation line marvelous and the automatic transmission service device ATF Evolution Premium, which caused great enthusiasm.

The bluechemGROUP would like to thank the entire exhibition team and its partner MBS for the successful automechanika Dubai 2018!

A rocky road The weekend at the Czech Autodrom Most (April 27 – 29, 2018) also ended without points in the ADAC GT Masters 2018 for team YACO Racing.]]> Thu, 03 May 2018 11:46:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/a-rocky-road-8555.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/a-rocky-road-8555.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed If you look at YACO Racing's results at the Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic last weekend (April 27, – 29, 2018), you will quickly realize the great potential of the team. Twice, Philip Geipel and Rahel Frey were able to move more than ten ranks forward in the second race of this year's ADAC GT Masters. "Unfortunately, that was not enough for points, but just imagine what would be possible if we had started from 19th place. The way back to the fastest riders is very rocky and difficult – but we will not give up!", both drivers commented on this result. "What remains is all the more the clear goal that we have to improve our performance in qualifying", sums up team leader Uwe Geipel. The individual reports:

1st race, Saturday – place 21 (qualifying 34th)

The first run in the Autodrom Most could have started from an acceptable 25th place if it had not been for the penalty from the Sunday race at Oschersleben. As a result, the Audi R8 LMS of YACO Racing had to move ten places to the back starting from the 34th place. An additional drive-through penalty at the beginning of the race caused a further slowing down of the team. In the end, it was the 21st place.

2nd race, Sunday – place 22 (qualifying 33rd)

Day two of the race weekend also started with a poorly promising 33rd place in qualifying. Although the following catch-up hunt brought up some hope for points, in the end, it was only 22nd place. "The weekend was again very difficult for us, but we have learned a lot. There are still some races ahead of us where we can prove ourselves – we continue to fight!", explains Uwe Geipel undaunted.

ADAC TCR Germany – Simon Reicher

While YACO Racing did not score points in the ADAC GT Masters, things looked very different at the ADAC TCR Germany. Simon Reicher twice secured a good starting position in the top ten and finished the race in fourth place on Saturday. Sadly, on Sunday, minor problems with shifting led to seventeenth place finish. Simon Reicher said: "That was a shame, but to win, it just has to go together a lot. We will intensively analyze what was the cause of the error. However, no matter what comes out, the focus is now on my home race at the Red Bull Ring!"

As an official sponsor, the bluechemGROUP congratulates the entire team YACO Racing on the performance. We are curious what the next event will bring! By the way, our bluechemGROUP Audi will also be here, which can be booked for race taxi rides.

ADAC GT Masters 2018: Autodrom Most At the second race of this year's season of the League of Super Sports Cars (April 27-29, 2018), YACO Racing wants to score the first points.]]> Mon, 23 Apr 2018 14:27:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/adac-gt-masters-2018-autodrom-most-8551.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/adac-gt-masters-2018-autodrom-most-8551.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed The League of Super Sports Cars goes into the next round. Next weekend (April 27-29, 2018), the second race of the ADAC GT Masters 2018 will take place in Most, Czech Republic. For YACO Racing, this event is the "little home race". With a journey time of just 1.5 hours, the Autodrom Most is just a stone's throw away from the home in Plauen in Saxony. "We expect many friends and supporters to be at this race. That is why we want even more to deliver a good performance!", explains Philip Geipel. Team leader Uwe Geipel adds: "We have proven our potential in Oschersleben, now it is time to eliminate the weak points. If we improve in Qualifying, we can reach the points. That would be a great achievement!"

A hard piece of work

"This season will not be easy. The driver field is extremely strong and the pressure on the track is very high", Uwe Geipel clearly explains. "We have to work continuously to master this challenge – but I believe in ourselves!" At the next race, YACO Racing could benefit from the fact that the ADAC GT Masters will be in Most for the first time. "The track is really cool, but nobody really knows it. If we manage to adapt to the new circumstances faster than the competition, then that could bring us decisive advantages", suspects Rahel Frey. "In any case, it will be a very exciting race – not only for us but also for our new colleague Simon Reicher in the ADAC TCR Germany", adds Uwe Geipel. He says: "The youngster has shown his strengths in Oschersleben. We are curious what he will deliver at the Autodrom Most!"

At the first race of the Czech Speedway Championship in Pardubice (April 18, 2018), Richard Geyer and Ronny Weis have participated for the first time this year in a competition beyond the ice rinks. Before, there was already an event in the Slovak Žarnovica (April 08, 2018), "but that was rather a test run for us and not yet a serious race", explains Ronny Weis. He continues: "In contrast, being invited as a guest starter to the Czech Championship and being in Pardubice, in particular, is a huge challenge. The field is extremely strong and the track is extremely wide, allowing five instead of four riders to start each race. We knew that would not be easy!"

Richard Geyer: Setback in heat 1

How legitimate the fears would be, especially the fresh talent Richard Geyer found out very quickly. Our youngster hit a hole in the ground in his first run, which led to a very rough clash with the boards. Fortunately, there were no broken bones, but his foot was badly damaged. After the shock had gone, he was still able to do his last two runs in pain, but for him, that was rather training runs and not more races that are serious.

Ronny Weis: A cup for the season opener

Ronny Weis got off to a good start and scored a total of 16 points in the heats thanks to two third and three first places. He then had to race a jump-off with Zheněk Holub (famous from Drift On Ice), who also scored 16 points. In this race, our PRO-TEC rider prevailed, securing third place. He said afterwards: "I am very satisfied with my result. Finishing 3rd place out of 20 riders is a nice start to the summer season. I would like to say thank you again for the invitation to Pardubice!" Hynek Štichauer finished in first place, second place went to Zdeněk Simota.

The bluechemGROUP congratulates Ronny Weis on the successful start and wishes Richard Geyer a quick recovery!

PRO-TEC @ Danish Rally Championship With its workshop brand PRO-TEC, the bluechemGROUP supports the Danish rally team Jacob Madsen and Line Lykke Jensen in the Hyundai i20 R5.]]> Thu, 19 Apr 2018 12:27:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/pro-tec--danish-rally-championship-8548.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/pro-tec--danish-rally-championship-8548.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed What celebrated its very successful premiere two years ago will also be continued in 2018: The cooperation between the bluechemGROUP and the Danish rally team Jacob Madsen and Line Lykke Jensen. This year, however, the team will not compete in the Danish Rally Championship with an Opel Adam R2, but a Hyundai i20 R5. This vehicle model makes its debut in the racing series – supported by the highly effective workshop brand PRO-TEC!

The race calendar in this year's season of the Danish Rally Championship includes six events:

  1. March 31, 2018: Horsens (DM 1)
  2. April 21, 2018: MRS 1 Rally Cimben (DM 2)
  3. May 12, 2018: MRS 2 Anderup Rally (DM 3)
  4. June 09, 2018: Djursland Rally (DM 4)
  5. September 08, 2018: Rally Midtjylland (DM 5)
  6. October 27, 2018: Rally Sønderjylland (DM 6)

The rally team had speculated on a top-five finish at the first event but fell short of their own expectations due to a technical defect. "We had the victory right in front of our eyes, but for safety reasons, we finally decided to quit early. That was very hard for us, but we will not let this small setback get us down!" explain Jacob Madsen and Line Lykke Jensen. For all remaining events, a podium finish is now the goal.

The bluechemGROUP wishes maximum success for the upcoming season!

He explains: "We knew that we would have a tough season starting with the first race in Oschersleben, but of course we had already hoped to build on old successes here. Back to the podium – that is the mission. However, the 34 other vehicles on the track also have this plan ..."

The first event in this year's "League of super sports cars" (April 13 – 15, 2018) was not yet a good one for YACO Racing. Although the Audi delivered competitive lap times, it could not reach the points. Decisive was again the qualifying. Both Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel had bad luck here and could not get good grid positions. The results in detail:

1st race, Saturday – place 28 (qualifying 27th)

Of course, every driver is wishing for a qualifying round, in which nobody bothers. However, this wish does not come true for everyone. Unfortunately, YACO Racing was not one of those lucky riders and only managed to finish in 27th position. From here, the Audi kept moving forward in an absolutely thrilling race, but in the end, the racing gods intervened again. In the last lap, there was a turn, through which the Audi was moved back to the end of the field. He crossed the finish line in 28th place.

2nd race, Sunday – place 21 (qualifying 33rd)

On the second race day, YACO Racing had no luck in qualifying. No free lap, no gap in the field, no undisturbed driving – the Audi finished again on a rear starting position. From here, both drivers set to an impressive catch-up, however, due to the number of vehicles on the track, they could only fight to place 21. "That is not what we wanted, but we are still very satisfied and positive. We keep an eye on the podium – maybe it will work out at the next race!", Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel said optimistically.

ADAC TCR Germany – Simon Reicher

In the 2018 season, YACO Racing will not only start with its proven team of drivers in the ADAC GT Masters but also compete in the ADAC TCR Germany with Simon Reicher and an Audi RS3 LMS. The first weekend ended with a mixed result. On Saturday, Simon Reicher took 6th place in a captivating rain-qualifying and then fought his way up to fourth place in the main race. On Sunday, he even started from rank 5, but then had great bad luck. In a chicane, he turned and stood across the track. Two more vehicles collided with him and caused great damage to his Audi. The race was over immediately. Now the mechanics are working hard to repair the car until next weekend – we keep our fingers crossed!

As an official sponsor, the bluechemGROUP congratulates the entire team YACO Racing on the result of the first race weekend. We are curious what the next event will bring! By the way, our bluechemGROUP Audi will also be here, which can be booked for race taxi rides.

In all this time, from 2011 to today, the likeable racing team from Plauen had different vehicle models in use. However, while the team changed every season during the first years (Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 in 2011, Chevrolet Camaro GT in 2012), since 2013 it has relied on the Audi R8 LMS ultra (2013 – 2015) and the Audi R8 LMS (since 2016). This enthusiasm for the vehicle manufacturer from Ingolstadt has now also infected the bluechemGROUP.

Race feeling for everyone!

Since April 4, 2018, it has been officially owned by the bluechemGROUP – an original Audi R8 Coupé V10 RWS. Werner Urban (President of bluechemGROUP) and Gabor Quoika (Procuratio) have personally received the car at the Audizentrum Dresden. Both commented: "We are very proud that the bluechemGROUP can now call this impressive race car in the look of YACO Racing its own. As part of our grand anniversary "30 years of PRO-TEC", we decided to take this step, as there have been increasing numbers of inquiries from partners and customers in recent years who wanted to drive the YACO-Audi or use it for promotional purposes. This is now possible!" Philip Geipel, driver of YACO, adds: "The special thing about this Audi is that it not only reminds you externally of our model, but also behaves very similar on the track due to the rear-wheel drive."

Further technical details about the Audi R8 Coupe V10 RWS:

  • Engine: 10-cylinder V-90°-Ottomotor with dry sump lubrication, gasoline direct injection, four-valve technology, DOHC cylinder head

Now, barely four months later, he can say beyond doubt that he has succeeded in this endeavor. "I had a very good season with many exciting races. At every event, the result was at least second place. Overall, I am more than satisfied with the course of the 6th PRO-TEC Cup and, of course, overjoyed about the title. Therefore, a big thank you goes to the whole team!"

Short overview:

Highlights and lowlights

"Although I only landed in second place in this race, the final in Dresden was my biggest highlight of the season. Because this result was enough to achieve the overall victory before my teammate Ronny Weis. Thereby, I got the title in the presence of all my relatives, friends and acquaintances, because for me Dresden is almost my home race. Absolutely great!"

As ebullient as the season highlight is the helplessness in finding a lowlight. "Actually, there is nothing that went wrong. Everything worked perfectly in the 6th PRO-TEC Cup. My bike did not let me down. My strategy went up every time – everything was great!"

Support

"PRO-TEC is my constant companion. I am glad that I can always rely on the highly effective lubricants. So I am able to concentrate on driving because I know that I do not have to worry about the technology. I especially use the chain spray, the Super-Lubricant and the Nano Engine Protect & Seal, because the effectiveness has absolutely convinced me."

Future plans

As for the plans for the upcoming season, Richard Geyer already has clear ideas: "Of course, I want to defend my title in 2018/19. For this I will start early with the preparations, so that I can already compete in the first race with a perfect setup. Especially for the starts there is still some potential for optimization. I am curious what else can be made of the technology!"

The bluechemGROUP would like to thank Richard Geyer for the interview and for the exciting season!

1988 – 2018: PRO-TEC celebrates its 30th anniversary The international workshop brand turns 30! Starting with a "handful of products", PRO-TEC has become the technology leader in vehicle chemistry and a global partner of the automotive industry over the past three decades.]]> Mon, 26 Mar 2018 14:15:00 +0200 http://www.bluechemgroup.com# http://www.bluechemgroup.com# info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed The triumph of PRO-TEC began in 1988 with Werner Urban, the President of the bluechemGROUP. Thanks to his clear vision, his strong hands-on mentality and his unstoppable entrepreneurial spirit, the highly effective products of the renowned quality brand were quickly launched in Germany and soon all over the world. He explains: "My goal was to turn the handful of products available to me at the beginning into the standard vehicle chemistry equipment of every car repair shop. From the very beginning, I have focused on innovative and sustainable formulations that have proven effectiveness – that was my recipe for success, and it still is today!" It is thanks to this relentless pursuit that in 2018 PRO-TEC is the technology leader in the field of vehicle chemistry and a worldwide partner of the automotive industry. Through constant innovation and proven expertise, the renowned quality brand has established itself as a constant in the international market in its 30-year history.

PRO-TEC conquers the world

The development of PRO-TEC has been characterized by rapid growth from the beginning. The workshop brand had more than 12,000 satisfied customers in Germany a short time after its founding. These included both independent workshops and well-known wholesalers. Driven by this progress, the next step was clear: PRO-TEC had to become international! Several worldwide distribution partners were quickly found in the 1990's, so the distribution network was soon extended to all European countries. In 2009, PRO-TEC had about 80 distribution partners on all continents – a development that continues until the anniversary year 2018. Thanks to more than 120 general importers, PRO-TEC is now available on all continents.

More space for big deeds

What began in 1988 as the "handful of products" has become an extensive portfolio over the years that allows a variety of cleaning, maintenance and care applications for various automotive system cycles. Whether fuel system, oil circuit or automatic transmission – PRO-TEC offers comprehensive solutions that ensure the mobility of a vehicle. In order to do justice to the growth of PRO-TEC, the corporate headquarters in Germany also needed to expand. First, the headquarters was moved to the South Thuringian Großgeschwenda and expanded by a training center and a fully equipped demonstration workshop. In 1999, with the CTP GmbH, founded in Leutenberg, production site was added. A new warehouse was built in 2012 for the extensive range of the renowned quality brand.

The future as a goal

As an internationally recognized quality brand for high-performance and innovative premium products for vehicle cleaning, maintenance and care, PRO-TEC today has millions of satisfied customers worldwide – from workshops to wholesalers. They all trust in the high standards that PRO-TEC has committed itself since its founding. The emerging path that PRO-TEC has pursued over the past 30 years will be followed in the future, thus continuing the success story!

The fact that the highly effective workshop brand of the bluechemGROUP has developed from there into the global technology leader in vehicle chemistry is due, above all, to the untiring work of Werner Urban, President of the bluechemGROUP. Thanks to his clear vision, his strong hands-on mentality and his unstoppable entrepreneurial spirit, the highly effective products of the renowned quality brand were quickly launched in Germany and soon thereafter all over the world. He explains: "My goal was to make PRO-TEC products the standard vehicle chemical equipment for every car repair shop. Right from the beginning, I have focused on innovative and sustainable formulations that have proven effectiveness – that was my recipe for success, and it still is today!" A plan that worked: A short time after its launch on the German market, PRO-TEC had around 12,000 customers. Over the years, this development continued internationally, making the brand a global partner of the automotive industry. Thanks to more than 120 general importers, PRO-TEC is now available on all continents.

The concept: highly effective products and more!

What began in 1988 as the "handful of products" has become an extensive portfolio over the years that allows a variety of cleaning, maintenance and care applications for various automotive system cycles. Whether fuel system, oil circuit or automatic transmission – PRO-TEC offers comprehensive solutions that ensure the mobility of a vehicle. Thereby, there is a coherent concept connected to every application to integrate it easily into everyday workshop life. Werner Urban comments: "PRO-TEC enables a workshop to solve numerous problems for its customers with minimal effort. The PRO-TEC concept comprises highly effective products and stands for a comprehensive workshop system!" All products made in Germany are produced by CTP GmbH, founded in 1999 in Leutenberg, Thuringia. The PRO-TEC headquarters including training center and development workshop is located in the immediate vicinity.

The future as a goal

For 30 years, millions of customers worldwide, both workshops and wholesalers, rely on PRO-TEC. The bluechemGROUP celebrates this special anniversary together with them and with all partners and employees. For Werner Urban, however, the focus is already on the future: "PRO-TEC has come a long way, but that is no reason for a break. With innovations, know-how and commitment, we will continue to work constantly for the success of our workshop brand!"

I reached the final at every event and finished twice on the top of the podium. That it was not the overall victory in the end, is a pity, but that is motor racing – and the next season comes faster than you think!" With these words, our PRO-TEC driver Ronny Weis summarizes his result at the 6th PRO-TEC Cup. He adds: "Apart from my own performance, I am very pleased that the legendary ice series continues to evolve. For example, those who have been following the quads and kids' races will most certainly agree with us that we have been able to see incredibly exciting duels this season. Everyone is giving his or her best – in every run! A big thank you to all participants and of course to our audience, which is constantly growing and proving that Drift On Ice is the speedway highlight in winter! I am proud to be part of this fantastic event."

Short overview:

Highlights and lowlights

"Like every season, the two races in Freital and Dresden played a special role for me. At these events, which I consider my home races, I always want to present myself from my best side", explains Ronny Weis. "That is why I am particularly happy that I secured first place in both Freital and Dresden. To win in front of all my friends, acquaintances and relatives was a fantastic feeling!"

Where there is light, there is always darkness. Therefore, in addition to the two highlights, there were also two less enjoyable experiences for Ronny Weis: "What really annoyed me last season was the finals in Jonsdorf and in Chemnitz. Especially in Jonsdorf, I was right on the way to victory, but then there was this little gap that my teammate Richard Geyer immediately used to slink past me – and that is it. In Chemnitz, however, my clutch has thwarted my calculations. A small technical defect was enough to throw me back in third place. Had it been enough for second place here – who knows how that would have affected the overall result. You cannot afford mistakes at Drift On Ice, that is what the season showed me once again."

Support

In the meanwhile 6th PRO-TEC Cup, Ronny Weis and his teammate Richard Geyer could, of course, rely on the support of the bluechemGROUP. "PRO-TEC products are our constant companion every season. We rely on the Internal Engine Cleaning before the season. We always use the Nano engine protection and we maintain our motorcycles with the Super-Lubricant or the chain spray. Many thanks for this constant support!"

Future plans

"My goal for the upcoming season is pretty easy to name: I want to get the title back!", Ronny Weis explains. He adds: "In order to succeed, I will work on my chassis and on the engine characteristics in the summer months. I think there are a few ways to optimize this. I am very curious how the first tests will be!"

The bluechemGROUP thanks Ronny Weis for the interview and for the fantastic season!

YACO Racing trusts in bluechemGROUP In the 2018 season of the ADAC GT Masters, we are again the official sponsor of the friendly racing team with its drivers Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel.]]> Mon, 19 Mar 2018 14:08:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/yaco-racing-trusts-in-bluechemgroup-8536.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/adac-gt-masters/yaco-racing-trusts-in-bluechemgroup-8536.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed The start of this year's "league of super sports cars" is just around the corner! The first race of the ADAC GT Masters weekend will take place in Oschersleben from April 13 to 15, 2018. The bluechemGROUP will again support the YACO Racing team this season; with its proven driver double Philip Geipel and Rahel Frey as well as the Audi R8 LMS consciously focusing on continuity. However, the coming season will take a completely different course than in 2017.

YACO Racing: Optimistic look ahead!

"The 2017 season was really difficult. We had to accept many setbacks and could not build on the successes of the past.", explains Uwe Geipel, Team Manager of YACO Racing. He continues: "But we have left the "Valley of Tears" behind us. Fortunately, we were finally able to find out the cause of our difficulties shortly before the final of 2017. It was the chassis, which was slightly damaged on an invisible level after a strike by a notch in Oschersleben. Therefore, all the changes that we had made from race to race to the setup had no effect. Unfortunately, solving the problem right before the final of the last season was too late to change anything in the overall result in 2017, but at least I can look forward optimistically to the coming months!"

A clear goal: Back to the podium

After YACO Racing was able to eliminate the problems of 2017, the team now wants to build on the successes of previous years. Uwe Geipel relies on tried and tested: "For five years, our team, our driver double and our car has not changed. Continuity is our key to success because it makes us all very familiar with each other, which greatly simplifies communication, for example. In 2016 and 2015, we were able to reach the podium several times in the existing constellation – and now we want to go back!" Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel add: "We are very much looking forward to the season. A total of 37 vehicles from eight brands (Audi, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG, Porsche and for the first time Honda) compete this time. That will be very interesting!"

Race Calendar 2018:

  • 04/13 – 15/04 Oschersleben
  • 04/27 – 04/29 Autodrome Most (CZ)
  • 06/08 – 06/10 Red Bull Ring (A)

Checklist for the car in spring When winter passes, it is time to bring the car into shape for spring. Our checklist reveals the key points you should take care of.]]> Fri, 16 Mar 2018 12:17:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/checklist-for-the-car-in-spring-7440.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/checklist-for-the-car-in-spring-7440.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Cold, snow, road salt and dirt – the winter is a very hard season for all automobiles. It is therefore not surprising that many car owners are looking forward to spring. However, the warmer months also demand some preparative care and maintenance. Our checklist summarizes the main points:

1. Paintwork

Road salt and grit afflict the paintwork in the winter months very much. All this dirt should be removed thoroughly, but surface-friendly before the spring. Thereby, the underbody and the wheel arches must not be forgotten. After this initial pre-wash, the paintwork should be inspected for damages and stone impact. TIP: To protect the paint long term, a sealant is recommended.

2. Auto glass and lighting

The fine film of dirt from moisture and dust that accumulates on the glass surfaces in the vehicle interior during the winter months should be thoroughly removed. For a good view, the wiper blades need to be examined and replaced if necessary. A thorough functional test of the lighting system is also recommended: TIP: scratched headlights can be renewed with a restore kit. For the windshield, a sealant is recommended in addition to cleaning.

3. Interior

The first step of spring-cleaning in the vehicle interior is an extensive airing. In addition, loose floor coverings should be removed, dried and vacuumed. Against the moisture in the interior, it helps to lay out newspapers. On all cushions, thorough vacuuming is recommended. Stubborn stains may be removed with an interior cleaner. All plastic and rubber parts should also be cleaned.

4. Air conditioner

It is recommended to change the interior or pollen filter before spring. TIP: Especially allergic persons should also take care for fresh air in the air conditioning.

5. Engine

After opening the engine hood, leaves and debris should be removed from the air inlets. In the next step, all hoses and lines must be checked for cracks. Subsequently, the fluid levels have to be examined. The engine oil should be checked and if necessary replenished. TIP: If the choice falls on an oil change, a thorough internal engine cleaning is recommended. The new oil can be optimized with our Oil Booster or our Nano Engine Protect & Seal. The cooling water is the next item on the checklist. It should also be refilled. TIP: Our Radiator Conditioner is ideal for extra protection. For a thorough spring check, the power steering fluid should not be forgotten. TIP: For any refill, our Nano-protection is recommended.

6. Fuel system

The spring-cleaning includes all parts of a vehicle. Therefore, to remove operational contaminations and any condensation from the entire fuel system, we advise our special products for petrol and diesel vehicles. TIP: The special care add-on is a cleaning of the exhaust line.

7. Wheels

The last item on the checklist is the tire change. It is particularly important to check the tread depth, which shall be not less than 4mm. The winter tires should be stored dry, dark and cool. TIP: We have already described extensively the subject tire change.

Drift On Ice: Season Review 17/18 From the kick-off in Freital to the encore in the Oberau Waldbad, the 6th PRO-TEC Cup offered a lot of hot action on a mirror-smooth surface.]]> Thu, 15 Mar 2018 15:10:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/drift-on-ice-season-review-1718-8534.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/drift-on-ice-season-review-1718-8534.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed With an encore in Waldbad Oberau ended on March 3, 2018, the 2017/18 season of Drift On Ice. The sixth edition of the PRO-TEC Cup also saw rapid starts, breathtaking overtaking maneuvers and fascinating drifts on a mirror-smooth surface. The legendary ice series was again convincing in every single race with high suspense and best entertainment. Drivers from five nations, who give their all with full commitment, a thrilling supporting program and of course the captivating title fight between our two PRO-TEC drivers Richard Geyer and Ronny Weis have made Drift On Ice once again an exceptional highlight of the winter. Now is the time to look back:

Freital, November 25, 2017 – the prelude

Exactly at the place where the 2016/17 season of Drift On Ice ended, the opening event took place this year. Here in 2017, our PRO-TEC rider Ronny Weis had just barely won the title in a thrilling decision race against his teammate Richard Geyer. Of course, there was one question now: Can the speedway veteran build on this success? In the heats, it did not quite look like it. It was a real nail-biting match, with which Ronny Weis reached the final. By contrast, Richard Geyer had no problems. He only had to give one point to the Russian Sergej Malyschew, who already showed clearly in Freital that he would be the toughest rival for Team PRO-TEC. However, Ronny Weis made a dream start in the decisive final race and finally won a hard-earned but deserved victory. Richard Geyer came in second, Sergej Malyschew finished third. (-->report Freital)

Jonsdorf, February 03, 2018 – the duel

The second event in the 6th PRO-TEC Cup impressed with its perfect ice. The surface of the ice rink Jonsdorf allowed extremely fast starts and very high speeds, which made for absolutely thrilling races. Both Richard Geyer and Ronny Weis took full advantage of these conditions and each delivered a perfect preliminary round. In the final, however, there could be only one winner. Like in Freital, Ronny Weis got a dream start again and took the lead. In the first curve, however, he left a little bit too much room on the inside, which Richard Geyer immediately used to pass by. With that, the Youngster took the victory, Ronny Weis finished second. Third place went to Sergej Malyschew again. (-->report Jonsdorf)

Chemnitz / Dresden, February 24 / 25, 2018 – the final

The big final of Drift On Ice took place this year in Chemnitz and Dresden. Here should be found out who would get the overall victory at the 6th PRO-TEC Cup. Of course, all eyes were on Ronny Weis and Richard Geyer. Would the speedway veteran prevail and defend his title, or will the young talent win this season? A small decision was already made on the first day in Chemnitz (the 40th race in the history of Drift On Ice). Ronny Weis had a lot of trouble with his clutch, which was, unfortunately, the strongest in the final race. He only finished third behind Sergej Malyschew and Richard Geyer, who delivered an absolutely flawless performance that day.

On the second day in Dresden, Ronny Weis could, fortunately, fix the technical problems. He was therefore in attack mode from the start fully concentrated on the victory. With eight points, he finished the heats and dominated the final. Just like Richard Geyer the day before, he showed a flawless performance and achieved the day's victory, but it was not enough for the title. His teammate Richard Geyer became the new champion, third place went to Sergej Malyschew. (-->report Chemnitz / Dresden)

Waldbad Oberau, March 03, 2018 – the encore

After the season had finally ended with the final in Dresden, there was good news just two days later: As the weather conditions permitted, an encore was added at Waldbad Oberau. Of course, the new champion Richard Geyer participated. His toughest opponent Ronny Weis, unfortunately, did not take part, as he was already in deserved vacation. Richard Geyer again showed a perfect performance at the outdoor event and made no mistakes. The encore of Drift On Ice 2017/18 also ended with a victory for him. Wojciech Lisiecki finished second and Sergej Malyschew took third place. (-->report Waldbad Oberau)

Exciting supporting program

If the action of the participants in the fight for the 6th PRO-TEC Cup was not enough, you could always count on the supporting program. Both the 50cc kids and the quads provided the ultimate in excitement and entertainment! For the kids, it was mainly new signing Valentino Scheibe who caused surprises. He fought repeatedly hot fights with the favorite Frieda Thomas and made her sweat a lot. For the quads in this season, everything was open, because almost every participant could win a race. Just Ilja Mademann, who won both Chemnitz and Dresden, had a minimal lead.

PRO-TEC: The constant companion

As usual, Ronny Weis and Richard Geyer from Team PRO-TEC were bitter competitors this season, but both could rely on the support of the bluechemGROUP. From race to race, for example, they were accompanied by the Nano Engine Protection and the super lubricant. With these two helpers, Ronny Weis and Richard Geyer were able to effectively minimize the wear on the mechanics. PRO-TEC once again delivered the all-round carefree package for motorcycles!

The bluechemGROUP would like to thank all participants for an exciting season!

Successful start of the season The Rally Team Just finishes the Rally Saarland-Palatinate, the opening race of the ADAC Rally Masters 2018, with 3rd place and 4th place in Division 5.]]> Wed, 07 Mar 2018 15:05:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/successful-start-of-the-season-8530.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/events/successful-start-of-the-season-8530.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Despite frosty temperatures, dense snowfall and even stinging ice rain, Florian and Tobias Just have successfully started the new season of the ADAC Rally Masters. The opening race, the Saarland-Palatinate Rally, ends for the sympatric rally team from the Bavarian town of Burgpreppach with third place (Florian) and fourth place (Tobias) in Division 5. In the overall standings of the 48 teams, they are now ranked 9th (Florian Just | Marco Schönfelder (co-pilot)) and in 14th place (Tobias Just | Sabrina Türk (co-pilot)).

Friday, March 2, 2018: Fight with ice and snow

The Rally Saarland-Palatinate is known above all for its changeable weather, but also for its spectacular special stages (SS). It is always one of the most demanding races in the seasonal calendar. This time, too, extreme weather conditions made the tracks as smooth as glass on the first day and therefore unpredictable. Many curves and sections were completely icy, although the organizer had tried to free the tracks from the ice in the days leading up to the rally. Under these conditions, the participants had to face five of the 12 special stages on Friday. The Rally Team Just started in the middle of the field. "We had a pretty high starting number, which is why we could hope for a free ideal line", said Tobias Just before the rally. With soft winter tires, both drivers went to the first stage in heavy snowfall. On SS1, both Florian Just and his younger brother Tobias kept slipping off the track and had to lose a lot of time. Nevertheless, it was #3 for Florian Just and #5 for Tobias Just after SS1! Both teams now knew the track conditions and the grip level, which is why the second test was mastered without mistakes. Due to the no longer guaranteed rescue chain in an accident, the organizer had to cancel the remaining tests.

Saturday, March 3, 2018: Solvable problems

As the snow had gone overnight and the tracks were cleared with snowplows, the start on the second day was much easier. Florian Just and Marco Schönfelder, as well as Tobias Just and Sabrina Türk, got into the race much easier. However, Tobias Just had to fight with misfires and thus lost valuable time repeatedly. The fault – a faulty throttle – was luckily found and fixed during the lunch service. A final showdown took place on the last test because the weather brought heavy snowfall again and put the tracks back into a veritable slide. In the end, it was the 3rd place (Florian Just) and the 4th place (Tobias Just) – congratulations!

The next race of the ADAC Rally Masters takes place around Sulingen on May 04/05, 2018.

The champion prevails After his title at the 6th PRO-TEC Cup, Richard Geyer also won the additional race of Drift On Ice at the Waldbad Oberau (March 03, 2018).]]> Mon, 05 Mar 2018 14:16:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/the-champion-prevails-8529.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/the-champion-prevails-8529.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed With a clear goal, our PRO-TEC rider Richard Geyer started last Saturday (03.03.2018) at the additional race of this year's season of Drift On Ice in the Waldbad Oberau: he wanted the victory. "After winning the title of the 6th PRO-TEC Cup, my plan was to crown the season", he says with a confident smile on his face. His hardest opponent was the tricky natural ice, which is known to always provide a surprise. His teammate Ronny Weis, on the other hand, could not cause him any problems, as he was already on a well-deserved holiday.

How Richard Geyer has managed to master the Waldbad and to win, we summarized in this report:

Convincing in the preliminary rounds

For that Richard Geyer could put his plan into action, the first hurdle was to overcome the heats. However, as in many races of the 6th PRO-TEC Cup, he had no problems. With a big lead, he won all of his four appearances and moved confidently into the final with eight points.

Strategically in the final

Although Richard Geyer was the first to choose his starting position in the final, this time he refused the inside lane and instead decided to start from the outside. He explains: "I had looked closely at the ice and saw that there was more snow on the outer track. That is why I assumed that there is more grip on the outside, which encourages a good start and a quick first lap – and that is just how it was!" Richard Geyer had a fantastic start, initially stayed on the outside and then moved to the inside. He increased the gap on Wojciech Lisiecki from round to round and got the desired victory. In third place was Sergei Malyshev.

Best entertainment in the side program

As usual, the Quads and the 50cc Kids were also part of the additional event at Waldbad Oberau. Alexander Hauswald was able to prevail in the Quads this time and took the deserved victory. Frieda Thomas was the winner of the Kids. With a narrow lead, she took the victory on the difficult natural ice.

The bluechemGROUP would like to thank all participants for a thrilling final event of Drift On Ice 2017/18!

That was the big question everyone asked last weekend (February 24 / 25, 2018). The hot favorites were clearly Richard Geyer and Ronny Weis of Team PRO-TEC, who each had 19 points before the final. But only one of them would be able to take the overall victory in this year's season of the legendary ice series. How the two races in Chemnitz and Dresden went, we summarized in this report.

Chemnitz – clear decision in the final

The 40th race in the history of Drift On Ice was the prelude to the final weekend. The drivers were highly motivated and ready to give their all. Both Ronny Weis and Richard Geyer already wanted to secure crucial points here in order to gain an advantage in the fight for the overall title.

Ronny Weis – when the clutch breaks ...

For the speedway veteran of Team PRO-TEC, the most important thing was to get through the heats safely and definitely reach the final. He could realize this plan, but not as playfully as he had wished. His clutch caused him problems from the first race so that his engine could not bring the power on the rear wheel. Therefore, he lost one point to Sergej Malyschew in the second run. Overall, he scored seven points.

Richard Geyer – advantage secured

While Ronny Weis had a bit of trouble, everything ran smoothly for the young talent Richard Geyer. He dominated the heats and secured a perfect eight points. Without any problems, he reached the final and could even choose the inner lane as starting position there – ideal conditions for the day's victory.

The final – even PRO-TEC cannot fix that

In addition to Ronny Weis and Richard Geyer, Sergej Malyschew entered the final. The Russian, like Ronny Weis, scored seven points in the preliminary round. However, since he was better in direct comparison, he could choose the middle lane. Ronny Weis, therefore, started from the outside. Immediately after the start of the final race, Richard Geyer took the lead. Ronny Weis tried to overtake Sergej Malyschew but did not pass him. Finally, the clutch failed completely, so that Ronny Weis had to be content with third place. The victory went to Richard Geyer. Sergej Malyschew finished second.

Dresden – who masters the ice?

The closing event of Drift On Ice took place this time in the EnergieVerbund Arena Dresden. Once again, everyone was highly focused in the entire hall – from the kids to the quad bikers. In particular, the somewhat softer and therefore smoother ice was particularly challenging. There were several crashes, but fortunately, no one was injured.

Ronny Weis – all on attack!

Fortunately, he was able to solve the problem with his clutch the night before, so Ronny Weis was in attack mode right from the start. He came through the preliminary round without a mistake and got a fantastic eight points – even though he had used his first two races to fine-tune the clutch. The ice caused him no problems.

Richard Geyer – no stress ...

Completely relaxed, calm, balanced – this is how you could watch Richard Geyer at the race in Dresden. The young star came through his heats confidently and achieved seven points without stress. Only in the last race, in which he met Sergej Malyschew and his teammate Ronny Weis, he had to be content with second place. Should that be an outlook on the final run?

The final – only one can win the 6th PRO-TEC Cup

As in Chemnitz and in the last round of the preliminary round of Dresden, Ronny Weis, Richard Geyer and Sergej Malyschew met in the final. While the Russians could only reach the second place, both riders of Team PRO-TEC could win. Ronny Weis, therefore, focused on victory. He had a fabulous start and took the lead. Richard Geyer was always right behind him, but could not overtake him. Sergej Malyschew had to be content with third place. This meant the winner of Dresden was Ronny Weis. For the overall victory, however, it was not enough. The new champion of Drift On Ice is Richard Geyer – congratulations!

High tension in the side program

Both in Chemnitz and in Dresden, the kids and the quads were absolutely convincing in the side program. The kids had so many hard fights on the ice that a clear favorite was unrecognizable. It came therefore also to a very scarce decision, with which Frieda Thomas in Chemnitz won the daily victory. In Dresden, Valentino Scheibe prevailed. As a big surprise, he rolled up the field repeatedly and secured himself absolutely deserved the first place.

With the quads, Ilja Mademann dominated both in Chemnitz and in Dresden. He was able to win almost every race and was confident in winning the day – an absolutely convincing performance!

The bluechemGROUP congratulates all winners of Drift On Ice 2017/18 and thanks for an absolutely exciting season!

Diesel Particle Filter Cleaning If a diesel vehicle is used mainly in city traffic and for short distances, it is sooner or later necessary to clean the particle filter.]]> Fri, 16 Feb 2018 14:00:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/diesel-particle-filter-cleaning-7390.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/diesel-particle-filter-cleaning-7390.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed For several years, diesel particle filters (DPF) have been a standard equipment for all modern diesel vehicles. However, for the proper functioning of these components, it is necessary to drive long distances, otherwise, the temperatures required for the self-cleaning in the DPF cannot be reached. In particular, the use in city traffic and for short distances more and more leads to a clogging of the particle filter. The consequences are fault messages via the vehicle diagnostic system, power loss and increased fuel consumption. In the worst case, there will be a total failure.

Four solutions

Depending on the degree of contamination, the bluechemGROUP offers various products to clean the diesel particle filter.

Preventive cleaning with the High Power Cleaner for Diesel Particle Filters

Since this product greatly reduces the ignition temperature of the soot collected in the DPF, it makes the self-cleaning possible even on short distances. Without installation or removal, storage time or other disturbances, the particle filter can be – if regularly used – permanently and fully cleaned during driving. The product is suitable for all diesel engines as well as diesel fuels.

Intensive cleaning with the DPF Flushing Fluid

Particularly stubborn dirt and deposits in the diesel particle filter can be gently removed with this special fluid. Although for this, the DPF has to be removed, for experienced amateur mechanics this is not a too difficult task. We recommend the use overnight as the Flushing Fluid and DPF must be kept together for 8-10 hours in a vessel. The product is suitable without problems for aluminum, magnesium, zinc and cadmium parts and suits for the latest generation of particle filters.

Professional cleaning with the DPF Top Gun Cleaner

Workshops, which own our DPF Gun Flush, can offer their customers a quick and easy cleaning of the DPF with this product. Without dismantling, all soot deposits in the DPF will be dissolved and removed. The product is suitable without problems for aluminum, magnesium, zinc and cadmium parts and suits for the latest generation of closed particle filter systems.

Direct application with the DPF/Catalyst Cleaner

Professional workshops can evaporate stubborn operationally caused contamination in the diesel particle filter absolutely residue-free without disassembling. Thus, the full function of the DPF is restored even at high degrees of contamination. The product is applicable to all closed particle filter systems.

Whether for personal prevention or professional restoration – the bluechemGROUP provides the right solutions for each diesel particle filter.

Refrain from warming up In winter, the prolonged idling period after the engine start pollutes the environment and harms the engine more than a direct driving off.]]> Wed, 14 Feb 2018 14:28:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/refrain-from-warming-up-7311.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/news/news/refrain-from-warming-up-7311.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed Leave the house in the morning, go to the car, get on and drive off – probably this is the dream of every vehicle owner in winter. The reality is often quite different: Every morning not only the car glass is frozen, but also the temperatures in the interior are uncomfortable low. What could be more natural than to let the engine warm up, so that the heater takes care for perfect sight and a comfortable atmosphere?

Not a good idea

Although the inner urge for comfort may be immensely strong, it is not recommended to give in to it. Within the idling phase, there is much useless fuel consumption and the engine is also strained unnecessarily strong, because the oil has not the required operating temperature - and it also does not reach it fast enough while idling!

The alternative

Instead of letting the engine run unnecessarily, it is recommended to start the trip right after freeing the car glass from the ice. During normal operation, the period it takes for the oil to reach the necessary temperature is reduced considerably and consequently also the risk of wear. Additional protection during the cold start phase offers our "Nano Engine Protect & Seal". This product produces a highly active Nano barrier in the oil that protects against wear and ensures a gentle, smooth engine operation.

Drift On Ice: Chemnitz / Dresden On the weekend of February 24 / 25, 2018, the last two races of this year's season of the legendary ice series will take place in Chemnitz and Dresden.]]> Mon, 12 Feb 2018 14:16:00 +0100 http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/drift-on-ice-chemnitz--dresden-8508.html http://www.bluechemgroup.com/en/sponsorships/speedway/drift-on-ice-chemnitz--dresden-8508.html info@bluechemgroup.com (bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed) bluechemGROUP News - RSS Feed The final of the 6th PRO-TEC Cup is imminent. There are only a few days left until the weekend of February 24 / 25, 2018, the last two races of this year's season of Drift On Ice take place. Then it will be clear who gets the title in the legendary ice series this year. The venues for the final race 2018 are the Eissportzentrum Chemnitz (Saturday, 02/24/2018) and the EnergieVerbund Arena in Dresden (Sunday, 02/25/2018). The audience can look forward to breathtaking drifts, lightning-fast launches and captivating overtaking maneuvers on both days. Of course, with the 50cc kids and the quads, there will also be an extensive side program.

Fight for the title: Everything's open

Ronny Weis, Richard Geyer, Sergej Malyschew or maybe Jacob Bukhave or Zdenek Holub? When asked who will be the overall winner in the current season, there is currently no clear answer. Most points currently have Ronny Weis and Richard Geyer. With three points less Sergej Malyschew, however, is very close. Jacob Bukhave and Zdenek Holub also have a small chance of winning the title if they can reach the podium in the final races. The tension is huge, who will prevail in Chemnitz and Dresden in the end.

Exciting side program: Action on two and four wheels

It is an integral part of every event of Drift On Ice: the extensive side program. In Chemnitz and Dresden, this time again the 50ccm kids are there, which will give an answer to the question: Can Frieda Thomas also convince in the final race again? The audience may be curious! The second highlight of the side program are the quads. In Freital and Jonsdorf, these infernal machines have already proven what they are made of so that once again a spectacle can be expected.

Team PRO-TEC: The victory in mind

Can Ronny Weis defend his title from last season or does Richard Geyer win the overall victory? In any case, the final weekend will provide an answer to this question. However, one thing is already clear: Thanks to PRO-TEC, both drivers can fully rely on the technology.

The bluechemGROUP wishes all participants in Chemnitz and Dresden maximum success!
