If an engine is the heart of a car, then oil and lubricants are its lifeblood, and for the 18th consecutive year Corvette Racing is teaming up with Mobil 1 to provide the lifeblood that will keep the C7.R’s V8 heart, and other moving parts, in top shape. Just like the production car.
“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,” David Tsurusaki, strategic global alliance manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants, in a press release.
ExxonMobil further notes that its collaboration with Corvette Racing has led to advancements in the lubricants used in production cars.
Running in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship racing series, the Corvette Racing C7.R competes in the GT Le Mans class, which includes competing sports cars from Aston Martin, BMW and Dodge (née SRT).
