Since the beginning COMEPRE has assiduously worked in the field of motor sport. As we have already told in the section history of the Company, the physical proximity of COMEPRE’s workshop the Autodelta directed by Ing. Carlo Chiti facilitated the collaboration of the company in the production of components for motor racing.
So COMEPRE actively participated in the creation of the frames of the glorious Alfa Romeo 33, who participated in the World Constructors Championship in the late '60s and late' 70s.
But the collaboration was extended to the Formula 1 cars, specifically for the car deployed by Alfa Romeo in the world championship between 1979 and 1985.
Also in this case the chassis of the Alfa Romeo 177 and 179 was made of aluminum, with the central "tub" and other parts in Honeycomb (honeycomb shape panels between two sheets of aluminum). In the workshop of COMEPRE are still jealously preserved many components of this frame.
The advent of the Titanium in racing, thanks to the characteristics of strength and lightness of this material, led to the development of numerous components for this sport. And since in beginning of the 70’s COMEPRE also began to cooperate with the Ferrari racing team, to which were supplied several pieces in welded Titanium for Formula 1 cars, and with which, in the second half of the 90’s, COMEPRE collaborated also for the welding of the gearbox manufactured in Titanium.
And, in the world of competition and of the automobiles in general, they have been numerous car manufacturers and teams that we served. Many are still in business and of others we can only remember the past success. So we can mention Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Lamborghini, Lola, Motori Moderni, Osella, Lotus.
In between the 80's and 90's there was also a close collaboration between COMEPRE and the racing team Minardi, collaboration that continued until the Formula 1 team was sold to Red Bull.
In the field of motor sport COMEPRE has built a multitude of components in Titanium and other sophisticated materials, from simple reinforcement parts to "cradles" for engines, from arms of suspension to manifolds, from exhaust pipes to mufflers, from pedals to radiators, from structural parts to roll bar and safety components for the pilot. Among the latter we point out the roll-bar in Titanium made for the Minardi Formula 1 (see pictures below), which was submitted successfully to test impact equivalent to 9,5G.
But, in addition to Titanium and Aluminum, in COMEPRE are used also other materials, such as alloys in high strength steel, for example the 15CDV6, used to implement wheel hub casings and suspension parts.
COMEPRE is proud to have a great number of customers, new and old, large and small companies or private people,that as thei job or just for passion, are working in, or attending to, the field of motor racing, both on track as well as in rallies. With all of them we like to study the most suitable solutions to achieve the best performance, participating with commitment to solving their problems and, with great pleasure, even to their sport successes.
