BOSCH Introduces ..

ICON Wiper Blade Challenge for Grand-Am Road Racing Competitors

Teams from each series will benefit from BOSCH's involvement

Robert Bosch LLC is pleased to announce the continuation and enhancement of the ICON Wiper Blade Challenge for Grand-Am Road Racing competitors. Starting in 2009 participation will be open to every class racing within Grand-Am. Eligibility for this program will require the use of the Bosch ICON wiper blades under rain racing conditions as well as the display of the Bosch logo on each side of the race car. Each participant will be supplied free of charge with two sets of ICON wiper blades. In addition, there will be a $500.00 contingency payment for the first-place finisher in each class utilizing the ICON wiper blades during a rain race. The Grand-Am technical team will verify program compliance.

Bosch ICON wiper blades, with an integrated aerodynamic wind spoiler, are specially suited for high speed driving in wet conditions. This spoiler improves air flow over the blade to create increased down force, applying uniform pressure on the entire blade for superior visibility.

The ICON Challenge is an additional program to enhance the Bosch involvement with Grand-Am. The program and its implementation will afford Bosch the opportunity to test ICON wiper blades under true racing conditions.

Robert Bosch LLC plans to promote Grand-Am as a marketing and advertising platform utilizing the ICON Wiper Blade Challenge.

ICON Wiper Blade Challenge registration/order forms are available through Grand-Am.
