For table tennis players, coaches, officials, brands, shops and our beloved sport in general, 2021 was definitely not an easy year. Nevertheless, there were also rays of hope from time to time. We would therefore like to review the year with you. What happened to us? We wish a lot of fun to read the article and a Merry Christmas to all pimples players of the worldwide Sauer & Tröger family!
Table tennis meets racing: Sauer & Tröger at the Hockenheimring with Winward Racing
Dear Sauer & Tröger family,
As pimple players and Sauer & Tröger followers, you are already used to the fact that we always do things a little differently than all the other table tennis brands. We stand out, try to be cooler, come up with innovative marketing campaigns and always provide one or two eye-catchers.
This weekend at the Hockenheimring was no exception, where we got to know the meaning of “rubber” in a completely different way. This time not in the form of a nub on a table tennis racket, but in the form of slicks on the Mercedes AMG GT3 from Winward Racing.
It was precisely on this car that we were represented with our logo in the Fanatec GT World Challenge powered by AWS racing series. This was made possible by the former Ferrari World and European Champion Jens Liebhauser, who not only drives for Winward Racing, but also participates in the table tennis team competition at the TTC Oberacker in Baden-Württemberg with pimpled rubbers from Sauer & Tröger.
The team was completed by the only 19-year-old Lorenzo Ferrari and the Mercedes works driver, Lucas Auer, who also competes in the DTM. A weekend full of action ended with a 5th place in the Gold Class. The Sauer & Tröger logo was also literally glowing after the race.
During the race we also discovered some similarities between racing and table tennis:
It comes down to fitness, reaction speed and sensitivity
It is a very fast sport where you have to make a decision in a split second.
As in table tennis, the condition of the rubber plays a very special role
It’s better not to drive or play the ball out of bounds 😉
For us it was in any case a great experience to experience “table tennis meets racing” live from the paddock and to get deep insights into racing. We wish Team Winward all the best for the last races of the season in Valencia and Barcelona!

One pimples player like that, the other like that. We are currently experiencing an unprecedented parallel world of table tennis. Many pimples players are hot for the new season, have been training for months and can hardly wait for it to start again. Other pimples players, on the other hand, do not even get the racket out of the cellar. We want to get a broad picture of the mood.
