Lubricant and treatments manufacturer Millers Oils is the new Technical Partner of British racing car manufacturer Ginetta Cars.
As part of the relationship, a new bespoke lubricant range has been specifically developed by Millers Oils for Ginetta vehicles. ‘Ginetta Tech by Millers Oils’ is a new range of formulations based on the knowledge developed from Millers Oils’ industry-leading Nanodrive product. The new range uses low-friction technology which enables high performance levels, even under the most demanding race conditions. Its engine, transmission and differential lubricant will now be factory-fill on all Ginetta vehicles.
Millers Oils will also be the official title sponsor of the Ginetta GT4 Super Cup series that is hosted alongside the British Touring Car Championship schedule. The partnership also sees the 2019 Ginetta Junior scholarship winner compete in a Millers Oils-branded G40 car for the upcoming championship.
Tony Lowe, Managing Director, Millers Oils said: “Motorsport heritage runs deep into our 130-year history and we are delighted to continue that journey working with Ginetta Cars”
He added: “The partnership aims to benefit those competing in the 2019 Ginetta Championships by improving reliability while also increasing performance. As well as developing the new co-branded range, we will also be offering our lubricant expertise not only to Ginetta itself, but also to competitors through our technical helplines.”
Millers Oils has used its technical understanding and lubricant industry experience to support Ginetta Cars with a bespoke oil range. ‘Ginetta Tech by Millers Oils’, will be used as the first fill and mandatory lubricant by all drivers competing across the Ginetta Championships. The products have been specifically formulated for Ginetta vehicles and the fluids made orange to reflect Ginetta Cars’ company colour. Included in the range are; 0w30 and 10w60 engine oils, 75w90 gear and limited slip gear oils, and a 300 plus motorsport brake fluid.
“It is great to welcome a company as accomplished in motorsport technologies as Millers Oils to the Ginetta Cars team as our official Technical Partner,” said Lawrence Tomlinson, Ginetta Chairman. “The new ‘Ginetta Tech by Millers Oils’ range is a fantastic opportunity for drivers across our championships to benefit from new lubricants that offer improved performance and protection. These features provide vehicles with both immediate and long-term benefits, which is why we are also factory filling Millers Oils lubricants into all Ginetta cars.”
‘Ginetta Tech by Millers Oils’ will be available to customers at the start of the new year, ahead of the new season that gets underway over the weekend of April 6-7, 2019 at Brands Hatch. The season then runs through to October, visiting some of the most iconic British racing venues such as Silverstone, Knockhill and Thruxton.
