ExxonMobil Lubricants has announced that it will be the official partner of the three Maruti Suzuki rallies that will take place this year, starting with the 14th iteration of the Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm that was held from April 3 to 10 which had ExxonMobil’s Mobil1 engine oil as the official lubricant partner.
The other two Maruti Suzuki Motorsport rallies for which ExxonMobil Lubricants will be official sponsor include the Raid de Himalaya and Dakshin Dare, which will be held later this year.
“Over the decades, Mobil has been committed to performance and leadership in technology. It is this legacy as a product technology leader that enables us to work side-by-side with leading OEMs around the world. Partnering with Maruti Suzuki Motorsport – three years in a row – has been an affirmation of this shared commitment to excellence. Extending the relationship for another season, was a natural choice for both” said Rupinder Paintal, general manager, OEM business, ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt Ltd.
ExxonMobil’s Mobil1 brand has also been part of motorsport events on the international stage with its participation dating back to 1978 where it sponsored the Williams F1 team. The brand is also the official engine oil for multiple racing formats including NASCAR, Formula Drift series and the Sports Club of America.
