Exxonmobil and Corvette Racing have extended their partnership, in which the former provides Mobil 1 lubricant technology and engineering support to the C6.R racing program. Formally announced before the ALMS season kickoff at Sebring, the renewed collaboration will mark the 14th consecutive year in which the Mobil 1 brand has been a major associate sponsor for Corvette Racing and the "Official Lubricant of Corvette Racing." In this multi-year agreement, Mobil 1 branding will continue to appear on Corvette Racing's C6.R cars, uniforms, and vehicles.

"Partnering with [Corvette Racing] gives us an excellent platform to fully demonstrate the technological benefits of our products," said David Tsurusaki, Strategic Global Alliance Manager, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties. "ExxonMobil engineers work closely with Pratt & Miller and Corvette Racing to develop and test new technologies to optimize powertrain performance, improve fuel-economy benefits, and increase horsepower output without sacrificing engine durability. This collaboration has advanced Mobil 1 motor oils, gear oils, and greases that have been and may be used in future Corvette and GM vehicles."
