Alberto Bombassei, Brembo chairman and president, was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame last night at Detroit’s Cobo Center.
Along with industry luminaries Ed Welburn and Jack Roush, Bombassei took his place among the most honored automotive industrialists from around the world.
“I was very honored and moved last evening to become a member of the esteemed Automotive Hall of Fame,” said Bombassei. “Seeing my name alongside many respected and admired automotive contributors makes me particularly happy and strengthens my sense of duty toward our business – the car industry.
“It comes natural to me thinking that this prestigious recognition is somehow a confirmation of the great passion for cars I have always had, ever since dreaming of driving my father’s car when I was a young boy. Such passion has grown with time thanks to the many cars that have marked my history and enthusiasm for the driving experience.
“As of today Brembo has won over 300 world championships in the different racing categories and I can assure you that we are not stopping here. For Brembo, competition is an essential laboratory for transferring our technology over time to our customers for their road applications. From ‘Racing to the Road’ is one of my favorite mottos, and believe me, that’s what’s happening every day at Brembo.”
