Mobil 1™ in motorsports

Mobil 1™ motor oils have long been the choice for preeminent race teams competing in the most demanding and popular motorsports series around the globe.

The history of the Mobil 1 brand in motorsports traces back to the early 1970s in rally competitions. The brand’s involvement in racing became more official in 1978 through sponsorship of the Williams Formula 1™ team and in 1987 with the sponsorship of Rusty Wallace’s No. 27 car in NASCAR®.

Today, Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil continues to be relied upon for its ability to deliver exceptional engine performance and protection under some of the most extreme conditions. Automotive technicians, race car drivers, team owners and some of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers can all testify to the advanced technology of Mobil 1 lubricants.

Motorsports continues to be a key element of the Mobil 1 brand’s heritage and pedigree. We are pushing ahead with new technological advances to improve our range of oils and lubricants, fueled by the desire for our products to contribute to outstanding performance on the track as well as on the road.
