For development in racecar technology, securing basic technical data of mass produced cars is essential, and we are working closely with Namyang Institute and Europe Technical Center in that respect. Moreover, we hold technology-sharing forums with Namyang Institute on a regular basis to make high-tech development more efficient. This way, mass-produced cars can share the same technological platform for development with racecars, simultaneously growing together.
