07.07.2017


Your LPG-fuelled car can’t compete in a race? It's a myth! STAG has started work on the installation of a 640 HP auto-gas system designed for special purposes car. It is installed in the vehicle of Kamil Dzierbicki, one of the youngest professional drifters in Poland.

Motor racing sports are enjoying a growing interest among its supporters.  Racing and drifting competitions have always given a lot of emotions, but there were some restrictions still in place by 2012. These included a ban on auto-gas cars to enter competitions, which was due to the regulations of the Polish Automobile Association (Polski Związek Motorowy, PZM). Currently, cars on auto-gas can take part in races and assembly work on the first vehicle of this type has already begun. The challenge was taken up by AC S.A., producer of STAG LPG systems for cars and the main sponsor of Kamil Dzierbicki, a talented drifter, one of the youngest in Poland.

Non-standard installation

The preparation of a car to compete in a rally requires non-standard approach from engineers and technicians. “This primarily comes from the fact that such a car is unique, everything in it is non-serial, reinforced, specially tuned up. Therefore, we need to create a dedicated installation, designed for the special needs of this specific car. This requires time and work of our best professionals who are available for this specific operation,” explains Marek Bezubik, a technical specialist at AC S.A., the manufacturer of STAG auto-gas system.

The challenge of 640 HP

A dedicated auto-gas system will be installed in a BMW car with 640 horsepower. It is being prepared for drifting races where Kamil Dzierbicki of STAG Rally Team successfully competes. The following elements have already been installed at STAG "SUPRAL” authorised service station in Wrocław in June: reducer (STAG R02 TWIN), injectors (ACW03), controller (STAG-300-6 QMAX PLUS) and Stag Tuning, which increases flexibility and dynamics in all gears in the entire speed range.

The works on the installation of auto-gas system in a sports car are going on all the time and, in all likelihood, it seems that the car will soon make its debut on the track. “What is this operation for us? I can summarise it with these words: challenge, priority, custom mission and installation without precedent. The work is in progress, the operation has already been launched, so we will be happy to keep you informed about its successive stages. The fans will certainly be pleased with the end result,” added Marek Bezubik of AC S.A.
