Unique Project called

Boost for AVL RACETECH Brand Ambassadors


Diversity and integration are important values at AVL RACETECH. In order to drive our commitment to achieving more visible equality, we have launched a new project. The goal of the initiative is to support four aspiring motorsport talents on their road to success. What makes it so special? They are sibling pairs – Jonas and Liam Müller, and Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc. Jonas, Liam and Yasmeen will now represent AVL RACETECH as official brand ambassadors, while Aliyyah has been an ambassador since 2021.

The Dakar Sistaz

17-year-old twins Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc are no longer strangers to motorsport fans: Dakar Sistaz – the nickname alone is a clear indication of the big goal, on which the two sisters have set their sights. They want to enter the famous Dakar Rally in 2023 – when they are both finally 18 years old. Aliyyah and Yasmeen have basically been working towards this goal since 2004, when they were born in Dubai. With a mother from the Seychelles and a Czech father, they have grown to be true cosmopolitans. They were born with a love of motorsport. Their father, two-time European truck champion Martin Koloc, is a motorsport legend in his homeland and beyond. Aliyyah was crowned the youngest truck race winner of all time at the age of just 16. For the 2023 Dakar, Aliyyah and Yasmeen will continue to train hard and, with support from AVL RACETECH, compete in various racing series. They include the FIA Middle East Cup for Cross-Country Bajas, which Aliyyah currently leads, as well as the EuroNascar Series and several races in the GT3 and GT4 Endurance Cup.…

The Müller Brothers

Like Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc, 18-year-old Liam Müller and his one-year-younger brother Jonas come from a family that is passionate about motorsport. Their parents met at a round of the European Rally Championship, after which they made their way through life as a cockpit duo. Their sons have followed in their tire tracks and are now among the top German juniors in off-road racing. Their motor racing careers started in the German Autocross Championship, a discipline that features lightweight cross buggies in short sprints on gravel and mud tracks. In 2019, Liam and Jonas were crowned champion and runner-up in the Junior Buggy class in the German series. They both share the same dream: to compete in the World Rally Championship, the WRC. They are taking a big step closer to achieving this goal in 2022. This year, they will contest their first real season of rallying – supported by AVL RACETECH. They will start in Opel Adam rally cars at selected rounds of the Mitropa Rally Cup and the German Rally Championship. And it goes without saying that they will also continue to put pedal to the metal on the Autocross track.
