Members of the media are invited to visit TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, to learn how TE autosport products are powering technologies in racing vehicles and beyond.

Autosport Engineering 2018

January 11-12, 2018, TE Connectivity Booth #E440, Hall 9, National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham, UK

Corrosion is a critical challenge to autosport performance, where every piece of technology can be the difference between winning and losing. TE has a deep history of engineering innovative solutions that address the harsh environments race teams face.

One unique challenge for TE’s engineers was producing a connector that could withstand the harsh, corrosive environment common to race tracks. Salty water on the surface often breaks down other metallic connectors. But TE’s DEUTSCH ACT composite connector range offers corrosion resistance in a small, lightweight package ideal for extreme race applications.

TE representatives will be available at booth #E440 throughout the show to answer questions and participate in interviews. Learn more about TE’s autosport solutions at TE's Autosport Engineering landing page.
