The Challenge Cup Series is excited to announce a returning sponsorship of Performance Racing Oils for the 2016 season as an Official Product Social Sponsor.
Performance Racing Oils are always looking to improve their products by staying on top of new technology and innovations. Performance Racing Oils are the North American distributor of Millers Oils, who have introduced nanotechnology to motorsports in F1, IndyCar, WRC, and many other professional and grassroots racing series with its Nanodrive of engine and gear oils.
Millers Oils gear oil with nanotechnology was awarded the Most Innovative New Product at the 2009 World Motorsports Symposium, beating out a data acquisition system from McLaren and the KERS system from Williams. Millers’ engine oil was the runner-up for the same award in 2012.
Nanotechnology reduces the coefficient of friction of sliding surfaces in the engine, improving durability and increasing usable power. During manufacturing, surfaces have micron (0.001mm) sized high and low spots created by machining and polishing. These asperities are sheared off in a running engine, which is observed as wear. Nano (0.000001mm) sized particles are significantly smaller than the high and low spots, which allows them to fill the low spots and act like billions of ball bearings, which reduces wear on the engine. Additionally, this reduction in friction frees up power for more useful purposes.
We are proud to partner with a respected brand like Millers Oils / Performance Racing Oils as the Challenge Cup Series embarks on another successful season.
