RaceChip® – a unique company

Manuel Götz, a chiptuning specialist founded RaceChip® in late 2007. However, a team of developers had been working since 1994 tuning vehicles using OBD tuning which later became the model for chip tuning.

In 2008 brothers Manuel and Daniel Gotz branded RaceChip® in a 1000 square foot attic in Holzmaden.  Manufacturing the latest version of RaceChip® chiptuning modules and the engaging work environment quickly made RaceChip® a sought after employer and quickly grew to 10 employees. In November 2012, the company grew to 46 employees and with it the introduction of RaceChip® Ultimate.  RaceChip® Ultimate boasted a 48 MHz processor and a high-profile FCI automotive connector.  The newest version made power available in real time.

RaceChip® Philosophy for Safety

RaceChip® products are only available via auxiliary controllers.  Why?  This is the only way to maintain the original software of the vehicle and the motor protection programs through the vehicle manufacturers.
