Dyson/Mazda win with Haltermann Solutions

Tue, Sep 28th 2010, 12:22 by Wayne Petersen

Lexington, OH August 7, 2010 – It was a sweet victory. As has become the tradition when Dyson Racing wins at Mid-Ohio, Rob Dyson was drenched with multiple bottles of champagne in victory circle here today after Chris Dyson and Guy Smith won the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge in their #16 Castol Mazda Lola coupe. It was the first overall American Le Mans Series victory for Mazda, for BP Biofuel Isobutanol, for Dunlop tires, for Guy Smith and Chris Dyson,and for Castrol. It was a new race record and Dyson set the car’s fastest lap four laps from the end.

Chris Dyson won by a half a second over Simon Pagenaud in the Highcroft entry. It was his fifth win in the ALMS. “We had a good car all weekend,” Dyson said. “It stopped well, put the power down in key areas, and it was extremely consistent as the fuel burned off. The guys in the pits did an amazing job putting us in the right place with our strategy, and the stops were great. Simon Pagenaud is one of our strongest competitors and I knew it was going to come down to a good hard scrap at the end. The pace was fast and furious. I really had to keep my head down and push every lap. It was very satisfying to win here today.”

Smith started the race and ran a close second for the first forty-five minute stint. “The car was mega during my run,” Smith said. Dyson got in the car during the first yellow on lap thirty-nine. He came out third and passed Pagenaud for second on the fifty-fifth lap. He hounded the first place car and was a half-second back when he pitted during the second yellow of the race and came out at the head of the field where he finished.

“We have had our ups and downs this year,” noted Smith. “We regrouped and reorganized and today shows the rewards from that. A good team is able to bounce back from adversity and that is the strength of the Dyson Racing team.”

Rob Dyson commented, “That last lap was a long one! I got to tell you that Guy and Chris really hammered the times today. They did a superb job in traffic and that was the winning ingredient. I want to thank Robert Davis, John Doonan and everyone at Mazda who have been so supportive of us, the people at BP and Castrol, our friends at Lola and everyone at AER who have been working so hard this year. And of course we have to say thanks to Dunlop. We double-stinted our tires at the end while Simon took on fresh rubber, and the performance of the Dunlops was very impressive. It has been a great combination of all of our partners working together, and we will all work hard to duplicate this for the remaining races.”

Haltermann Products becomes Haltermann Solutions?

Mon, Sep 27th 2010, 12:45 by Wayne Petersen

On Monday September 27, 2010, Haltermann Products is changing its market-facing identity to Haltermann Solutions. This is a reflection of recent diversification efforts as Haltermann Solutions is becoming more than just a test and reference fuel supplier to many its customers. Haltermann provides “Solutions” for anyone that has special, unique or demanding fuel requirements. For example, in addition to the traditional automotive test and reference fuels market, Haltermann now sells fuels and propellants for use in the aerospace and aviation industry as well as the automobile racing market, both which have demanding requirements and unique formulations. In addition, Haltermann innovates with its customers when challenges arise and offers “Solutions”. The new Haltermann Solutions identity is simply a reflection of what they offer to the entire fuels community. Haltermann Solutions remains a division of Johann Haltermann, Ltd.

Q: What is happening to Haltermann Products identity?
A: On Monday September 27, 2010, Haltermann Products is changing its division name to Haltermann Solutions.

Q: Why the name from Haltermann Products to Haltermann Solutions?
A: The name change to Haltermann Solutions is advantageous for several reasons. First, the company felt it was necessary to keep the Haltermann identity. As the leading manufacturer of automotive test and reference fuels in North America, the Haltermann name has become synonymous with these types of specialty high quality fuels. Haltermann Solutions and www.haltermannsolutions.com provides the differentiation needed when existing and potential customers seek out information from the company in the marketplace and online. Finally, the use of “Solutions” in the new identity provides Haltermann’s customers with a much better description of the total product and service offerings they endeavor to provide to their customers on an ongoing basis, especially as they continue to expand in to new markets. They not only provide the highest quality specialty fuels or “solutions” but also innovate with their customers and problem-solve to find “solutions” to their customer’s fuels and fuel related needs.

Q: Has the company name also changed?
A: No. Haltermann Solutions will still operate as a division of Johann Haltermann, Ltd., which remains the company’s legal name. Haltermann’s customers will not experience a change from an administrative or accounting standpoint. Haltermann will still be invoicing their customers as Johann Haltermann, Ltd. and customers will still pay Johann Haltermann, Ltd. Also, all contracts remain unchanged. This is an identity or brand change. “Haltermann Solutions” is how they want their customers to know them going forward.

Q: How do I find more information about the Haltermann Solutions offerings?
A: On September 27, 2010, Haltermann Solutions will be launching a new web site www.haltermannsolutions.com. Be sure to the site to see the ways Haltermann Solutions is innovating and changing. Customers will find it serves as a great portal for announcements and other useful information from Haltermann Solutions. It is a valuable resource for anyone having specialty fuel needs.
