ExxonMobil, Corvette Racing Extend Lubricant Technology Partnership

ExxonMobil to provide Mobil 1 lubricant technology and engineering support to the Corvette Racing team. This is the 18th consecutive year the Mobil 1 brand has been a major associate sponsor of Corvette Racing and "Official Lubricant of Corvette Racing."

FAIRFAX, Va. – ExxonMobil and Corvette Racing are extending their collaborative partnership that provides Mobil 1 lubricant technology and engineering support to the Corvette Racing team and the Chevrolet Corvette C7.Rs.
The renewed collaboration marks the 18th consecutive year in which the Mobil 1 brand has been a major associate sponsor for Corvette Racing and the “Official Lubricant of Corvette Racing.”
“Our affiliation with ExxonMobil and Mobil 1 lubricants has been a tremendously successful partnership in the garage and on the track, ultimately helping us win more races,” said Jeff Chew, manager of business strategy and operations for Chevrolet Racing. “It’s such a profound benefit to have a sponsor like Mobil 1 that also contributes lubricant technologies to help us optimize powertrain performance, improve fuel economy benefits and increase horsepower output without sacrificing engine durability.”
ExxonMobil engineers work closely with Pratt & Miller and Corvette Racing to develop and test new lubricant technologies that touch nearly every moving part of the racecar – protecting against wear and increasing efficiency and performance. This collaboration has contributed to the advancement of Mobil 1 motor oils, gear oils and greases found in many GM production vehicles and at auto parts retailers, repair shops and oil change centers across the country.
“Our deep involvement with Chevrolet, from Corvette production models available to consumers to the thrilling new Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, provides a powerful platform to fully demonstrate and prove the protection and performance benefits of Mobil 1 products,” said David Tsurusaki, strategic global alliance manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants. “This ongoing partnership with Corvette Racing allows us to continue testing and developing lubricant technologies that stand up to some of the most demanding conditions a vehicle and an engine can experience.”
The Corvette Racing and Mobil 1 teams will work throughout the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season to customize and improve the lubricant packages for the No. 3 and No. 4 C7.Rs as they navigate the highly competitive GT Le Mans class across a variety of tracks and racing conditions.
