Developing high-quality, lightweight, forged-aluminum wheels is the name of the game for Forgeline Motorsports. The company’s wheels are designed, engineered, and manufactured in-house at the company’s Dayton, Ohio, facility, and these wheels are created for the most challenging applications — like road racing.
Forgeline has been a part of American sports car racing since the 1990s, so expanding our involvement with IMSA is a natural progression for our company. — Steve Schardt, Forgeline
Many of the top vehicle race teams across North America choose Forgeline wheels for their cars due to their strength, light weight, and open-lug designs, which allow for faster tire changes at the track.
So, it came as no surprise when the International Motor Sports Association announced that Forgeline Motorsports would increase its footprint in this series for the remainder of the 2018 season.
“Forgeline has been a part of American sports car racing since the 1990’s, so expanding our involvement with IMSA is a natural progression for our company,” Forgeline Vice President Steve Schardt said. “The Schardt family has three generations currently racing, and it is our goal to keep sports car racing thriving in the United States. Sports car racing and IMSA have always been a part of Forgeline, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with the series.”
Forgeline is clearly a proponent of motorsports, as the company is also a sponsor of the Pirelli World Challenge, NASA, SCCA, CAM Challenge, Goodguys autocross, DriveAutoX, and the Midwest Muscle Car Challenge as well.
As for the IMSA support, you can catch the entire Forgeline team in action this weekend at the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge at Lime Rock Park.
