Olmec/Surelight on Winning Streak at Le Mans

9th June 2014

It's one of the most thrilling sporting events of the year globally, and Sheffield lighting specialist, Olmec Advanced Materials/Surelight couldn't be more excited about Le 24 Heures du Mans this year.

  Known as the Grand Prix of endurance and efficiency, one of the world's most famous, and oldest, endurance races will once again be helped along by Olmec's Surelight electroluminescent (EL) panels. Having already supplied the Audi, Lotus and Aston Martin teams (and previously Peugeot) with its Surelight EL panels, Olmec has sold over £15,000 worth of its paper thin, light-weight and water resistant panels in the last two weeks.  Now teams, including Oreca, Jota, AF Corsa, Sebastien Loeb Racing, Rebellion and TDS Racing will have their racing number panels visible in the dark due to this innovative light source that is ideal for night racing. Highly durable, Surelight's EL panels are the brightest in the world at 180 candelas/m2.  In high demand globally; at least 90% of the UK race teams use Surelight EL panels and they are used by teams in France, Germany, The Netherlands and Switzerland, as well as America and Japan.   As an ACO approved supplier; Olmec lights cars with its Surelight EL panels in most of the prestigious night races, including Britcar 24hr and Spa-Francorchamps 24hr. That certainly puts Olmec/Surelight in 'pole' position when it comes to helping these 200 mile an hour endurance cars be seen and be safe! Don't miss the racing on 14 and 15 June and for the night owls amongst you just remember that the company lighting the car you are following is most likely just down the road in Sheffield.  Be proud!
