No heat, no dust, and no pain can stop this team from accomplishing their mission. The AMPECO Racing Team has practiced all year long in order for them to succeed for a good cause. The company’s employees as well as their clients and friends once more bike to their very limits in order to collect donations for children in need on August 1st through 2nd.

For 24 hours they race on an 8.5 km long circuit track. With each driven lap, The Freedom Village receives a donation from AMPECO. Their motto: „Passion overcomes Pain“, and nothing can stop them. Peter Ley, AMPECO’s CEO admits the race an be very challenging:
„Especially at night one can hardly see the track, it can actually very dangerous but it is worth it because we support a good cause!“

It was established in 1967 as a citizen’s initiative to help children in areas of war and crisis.
