G-Energy premium oils manufacturer Gazpromneft Lubricants and G-Force Motorsport racing team signed a partnership agreement for 2013. The racing team will perform in world's largest off-road events of the year including Dakar Rally, Cross Country Rally World Cup and the Russian Championship.
To take part in Dakar 2013, G-Force Motorsport will use the motor oils and technical fluids developed by Gazpromneft Lubricants. Among the company's plans is testing G-Energy in G-Force Motorsport cars. High quality and wide range of the products offered by Gazpromneft Lubricants allowed G-Force Motorsport Team for choosing eight of ten lubricants necessary for the rally. The selection has included some Gazpromneft Lubricants' premium products – the synthetic engine oils. At present, the company is working at two more types of lubricants.
G-Force Motorsport Team will open its new season with Dakar 2013. Supported by Gazpromneft Lubricants three car crews will represent Russia 5 January on the legendary track: Vladimir Vasilyev – VItaly Yevtekhov, Boris Gadasin – Alexey Kuzmitch and Andrew Cherednikov– Albert Khorn. Today, G-Force is the only Russian team performing in world's off-road championship in the G-Force Proto cars with GM engines.
"In the 2012 Silk Way Rally, in July, we used Gazpromneft Lubricants' oils. G-Force Motorsport Team won the racing then. For the first time a Russian crew has stepped on top of this international rally. This time, in Dakar, not only G-Force racing cars, but the assistance vehicles will be filled with Gazpromneft Lubricants' oils. This is not only about engine and gear oils, but coolant and greases; quenching oils will also be used in spare part production,"
– says Team's driver and engineer Boris Gadasin.
"The extreme conditions of motorsports set higher requirements for lubricants quality. That is why cooperation with world-leading racing and rally teams is the best testing solution. Today Gazpromneft Lubricants owns the most high-tech lube blending facilities in Russia. This helps us not only achieve the international quality level, but constantly improve our production technology,"
– says Alexander Trukhan, General Director, Gazpromneft Lubricants.
