For the third time in a row, OSRAM equipped the BMW M Motorsport team at the legendary race in France. As an official BMW M Motorsport partner, OSRAM provided biologically effective lighting for racing drivers and their teams both before and during the race, enhancing their alertness and boosting their concentration. At this year´s race in France, the special lighting has once again made a decisive difference. The cars have raced into the night with innovative OSRAM technology in the headlights.

Biologically effective light to push the concentration

The legendary race in France pushes man and machine to the most extreme limits of endurance. Even the tiniest detail can be of vital importance – like using the right light. LED light glasses are used to help the drivers prepare for the races. Depending on the light dose, Chronogy Eyewear can increase performance - the blue light of the LED stimulates the central nervous system, has an activating effect and supports concentration. Reddish light is also used during the preparation phase. It helps to relax after training.

OSRAM celebrated the premiere of its biologically effective light in cooperation with BMW Motorsport in 2017 during the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. Its stimulating effect again brought the drivers and team safely through the night at this year's race in June.

OSRAM also turns night into day on the racetrack in the racing cars piloted by the BMW team MTEK at Le Mans: six OSRAM Oslon Black Flat S LEDs from OSRAM in the three-chip version are used in each of the main headlamps of the BMW M8 GTE, built by custom-design specialist GERG Lighthouse. The compact LEDs are particularly powerful. "This is the brightest light I've ever seen in a racecar," said Martin Tomczyk, a BMW racing driver.

OSRAM’s Ostar headlamp Pro, which was specifically developed for applications requiring intense brightness, was selected for use in the BMW M8 GTE’s auxiliary headlights. The LED’s seamless, white color effect is also extremely compelling.
