Bosch’s advanced bracketless ICON wiper blade is going racing! ICON blades are now poised to take on the rain in Grand American Road Racing throughout North America. Bosch has formed the ICON Wiper Blade Challenge, which is a contingency award program that will provide for the use of Bosch ICON wiper blades under rain racing conditions, as well as the display of the Bosch logo on each side of the race car, plus cash awards.

Bosch ICON wiper blades, with an integrated aerodynamic wind spoiler, are specially suited for high speed driving in wet conditions. This spoiler improves airflow over the blade to create increased down force, applying uniform pressure on the entire blade for superior visibility.

In the ICON Wiper Blade Challenge, each participant in Grand Am’s Rolex Sports Car Series or the KONI Challenge Series will be supplied free of charge with sets of ICON wiper blades as well as $300 contingency for the highest finishing car utilizing the ICON wiper blades. The Grand Am technical team will verify program compliance.

In the Rolex series, several GT (Grand Touring) cars will be running ICON blades and decals at tracks throughout the USA, while in the KONI Challenge, several Grand Sport (GS) and Street Tuner (ST) cars will also run with ICON blades and decals.

"The ICON Challenge program enhances the Bosch involvement in Grand Am racing, where many teams already run Bosch engine management systems, fuel injection, spark plugs, oxygen sensors, braking systems and other components. The program and its implementation will afford Bosch the opportunity to test the ICON wiper blades the motorist can install on his everyday vehicle under the stress of true racing conditions," said Wolfgang Hustedt, North American Motorsports Manager for Bosch.

ICON Wiper Blade Challenge registration/order forms are available through Grand American Racing.

Grand American Road Racing Association sports car racing consists of two series, the Rolex Sports Car Series and the KONI Challenge Series. Rolex racing includes two classes of cars, GT (Grand Touring), which are specially built cars with a ‘street’ car body, and DP (Daytona Prototype) cars, which are all-out race cars, which look like it. The KONI Challenge series includes two classes, big-bore GS (Grand Sport) and smaller ST (Street Tuner) vehicles.
