The successful Alpine Signatech team has been supported by Bahco for the past five years. Its drivers compete in the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race, as well as the Europa Cup championship.

At this year’s Le Mans, where the team has achieved four podium finishes in the past five years, Alpine driver Nicolas Lapierre set a new record for the fastest speed recorded on the challenging French circuit.
