Aimed at GT2 class cars, a contender to the Porsche GT2, Audi R8 GT2 and Lamborghini Huracan GT2. “The electronic wastegate will be used in the KTM X-BOW GT2 cars running in the new Fanatec GT2 European Series. Plans including an outing in the SPX-class in NLS and the 24 H race at the Nürburgring Nordschleifeamongst other events,” said KTM product Manager Lukas Barth, adding “We are experiencing outstanding support from what looks to be an extremely motivated team that is working with a lot of love for detail. It’s great to work with Turbosmart! ”The award-winning eWG electronic wastegate debuted at SEMA 2019 is at the centre of great publicity, being the first electronic external wastegate in the market. It has received support from the biggest ECU names in the industry as a highly tunable and very capable motorsport upgrade.


Turbosmart UK General Manager Ben Lawson commented, “I have been a huge fan of the X-BOW and KTM brand for many years, so when approached to assist with the GT2-project, I was excited by the opportunity of working with such an innovative brand and knew that the eWG would provide the performance the team were looking for. The communication throughout has proven to be vital in the project-knowing that the project was a time-sensitive one. We were able to coordinate our engineering teams’ technical support and feedback received from the developers fast and efficiently whilst also ensuring a smooth product supply process through our local distribution network. It has been a great project to work on, and I very much look forward to the future together.”

Reviewing the Electronic Wastegate (eWG)

KTM X-BOW GT2 Developer Bernhard Ehrlich commented, “As we have been working with electronic wastegates for some years now, the Turbosmart eWG is easy to set up! From our point of view, the Turbosmart product has a good speed of position changes and control at the limits (max open, max closed). No other manufacturer has comparable electronic wastegates at more reasonable pricing.”

As an approved series supplier to the KTM X-BOW GT2, the eWG will be put through its paces in some of the most competitive racing across the world. We can’t wait to see the podiums rolling in!
