Lucas Oil: ‘Motorsport should be on factors’ agenda’

New range of racing oils ready for selling.

Lucas Oil has refreshed its portfolio by reformulating its racing oils range and introducing a new racing oils brand to the automotive aftermarket.

The new offering, announced last December, comprises of mineral, semi-synthetic and fully-synthetic specifications.

Under a recent deal struck with CAAR, hundreds of motor factors across the UK now have easier access to the Lucas Oil brand, according to Les Downey, Managing Director of Lucas Oil. He also said: “It (the new racing oils) adds revenue opportunities for those that have not yet tapped into motorsport activities.”

Racing Engine Oil is the new name for the Lucas Oil range equipped with New Zinc Technology. Zinc is a key racing oil additive, according to Les, because under extreme conditions of heat and load, it reacts to increase engine protection. Consequently, racing oils contain more parts per million than oils designed for cars driven on public roads.

In addition to high-zinc values, the oil features a range of additive packages. The new formulations include packages that are designed with anti-oxidant, anti-wear, anti-foam and anti-seize technology, plus extra lubricity for faster acceleration and a higher RPM, as well as the ability to reduce drag, while maintaining optimum operating pressure levels.

The Racing Engine Oil brand was unveiled at the Autosport International Show, held at Birmingham’s NEC in January. The range is expected to hit the shelves in the UK and Europe from next spring, in time for testing ahead of the 2016 racing season.
