“Our drivers are sometimes at the wheel for over eight hours. Anyone who has been in their car for that long knows what you feel like afterwards. For our teams to deliver a perfect performance, they need a perfect seat.” Sven Quandt knows what he’s talking about. And he knows what he’s doing. Quandt owns and manages X-raid, the most successful private rally team in the Cross Country World Cup. The World Cup isn’t the only place where his racing drivers have had roaring successes – they have five impressive victories at the Dakar Rally under their belts, too. But X-raid is more than just a motorsport team; it works with many long-standing partners at the company headquarters to develop and modify cars such as the BMW X3 CC, BMW X5, the MINI ALL4 Racing, MINI John Cooper Works Rally and the MINI JCW Buggy. Quandt’s success doesn’t just stop at the companies that he’s managed, however: he also has a sterling track record as a co-driver and driver. He raced at the Dakar Rally a total of eight times and was even crowned world champion in the Cross Country Marathon Cup in 1998.
“In cross-country rallying several factors are key when it comes to seats. They include not just safety, but comfort as well. Our drivers sometimes sit in their car for over eight hours. Everyone who has sat in their car for that long knows what you feel like after such a drive. For our crews to be able to put in a perfect performance their seat must fit perfectly.”

Professional racing driver Uwe Alzen was born with motorsport already in his blood. The beginnings of his motorsport career were, however, anything but simple.
