The Mobil 1™ brand is title sponsor of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, a race of extreme temperatures and challenging conditions. Since 2007, the Mobil 1 brand has played an integral part of the support system behind the race cars, not only as a supplier but also a technology partner. Lessons learned from lubricant performance on track are applied to product development for personal vehicles.
"We develop Mobil 1 racing oil in the same lab as all our commercial products and people move between the two programs. Motorsport pushes the boundaries of our technology."
Challenging the elements
It is extremely important for the teams in Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup to have consistent quality and a high level of reliability for all of the components on the race car. The series is raced in all conditions around the world. It can be extremely cold at the Nürburgring in Germany, or teams have to battle altitude in Mexico City, and Mobil 1 lubricants always provide reliability and the best performance for all of the race cars on the grid. There are another 20 race series around the world, including Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, Porsche Carrera Cup and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, for which Mobil 1 lubricants provide reliable performance across New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China, Brazil, the United States and Europe, to name a few.
Manager Motorsport One-Make Series, Porsche
After earning his diploma in business and computer science at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Michael Dreiser was the Manager Motorsport at Porsche Asia Pacific Pte Ltd in Singapore from 2005 to 2008, where he was in charge of the pan-regional race activities of Porsche in Asia, including China.
"I really like the mentality and motivation of the people at Porsche. They work to get the job done and really deliver a good product customers can enjoy. With my job, I'm able to really see how the plan at my desk translates."
From 2009 to 2014, Dreiser was Manager International One-Make Series at Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG in charge of the one-make series being operated in various countries. He has now taken charge of the entire business field of the one-make series, including the series being operated from HQ and the planning and sales of the 911 GT3 Cup.
The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is a 420 bhp, agile race car closely related to the road version of the Porsche 911. It provides the platform to directly test Mobil 1™ products designed for the track and optimize them to work even more effectively in personal vehicles. Mobil 1™ motor oil is the factory fill oil for all Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars in 2019.
This season continues a collaborative engineering relationship used to create lubricant packages and push technology limits. This relationship helps the SHR team win races and ExxonMobil improve the quality of Mobil 1™-branded lubricant products with improved fuel mileage, engine efficiency and reliability.
