With RAVENOL, Opel Motorsport has been relying since the middle of 2015 on a strong technology partner that knows the motor-racing world like the back of its hand. In the popular series, the RAVENOL motor-racing lubricants provide tailor-made solutions in the areas engine, gearbox and hydraulics oils. 

Equipped with a normally aspirated 1.6-litre 16V four-cylinder engine (code number A16XER) designed and developed in cooperation with race-engine manufacturer Spiess, the ADAM R2 features a variable camshaft adjustment and produces – at 7,750 rpm – a maximum torque of about 190 Nm. The compact rally cars are run with the specially designed motor-racing engine oil RAVENOL RSS 10W-60. Due to its high viscosity index, is good shear stability and a highly efficient additivation, the fully synthetic high-alloy oil based on esters and poly-alpha olefins is particularly well suited for an extremely racy style of driving – even in the most gruelling conditions. Compared to its production sister, the modified R2 version of the Opel Adam features lighter pistons, special camshafts and valve springs. Also modified for the use in rallying are the flywheel, the intake system in front of the throttle valve, the exhaust system including the manifold, the ECU – and in addition, all the performance relevant mappings also were adapted. 

The power transfer is executed via a sequential Sadev five-speed gearbox STC75-14 with limited slip differential – and the high-performance gearbox oil RAVENOL Racing Gearoil makes for the lubrication you need in the demanding rally sport. At the same time, the radiator coolant RAVENOL OTC – Protect C12+ Concentrate makes sure that the engine keeps its cool in every situation. The special hydraulics oil RAVENOL SSF is used for the electro-hydraulic steering of the Opel ADAM R2 – an EHPS Type steering supplied by the manufacturer TRW – and makes for a perfect steering performance even at high speeds. The technical specifications and the lightweight body with integrated safety structure turn the OPEL ADAM R2 into a solid, brisk rally car that truly has got what it takes to raise a lot of dust, with its 16-inch EVO Corse aluminium wheels.

NitrOlympX 2017

Hockenheimring (Germany)

event.title

NitrOlympX

In drag racing, from the sportsman categories to the top category ‘Top Fuel’, lubricants are – apart from the fuels – one of the most important issues and RAVENOL as German premium manufacturer in this area is happy to meet every challenge – even if it takes the products up to the absolute strain limit. 

The "NitrOlympX" dragster race has been an all-out cult event for almost 30 years. Everything is quicker, more dangerous, louder and a touch crazier. A highly explosive mixture of sport, speed and show lures fans to the Rico Anthes quarter mile, where you will experience 100 % high speed, action and the fascination of the drag at the highest level.

It's a mind-blowing spectacle when these fireballs get into position in front of the so-called "Christmas Tree" starting lights. Adrenalin shoots into the bloodstream, methanol into the motors, tires burn and ear-numbing motors can be heard far beyond the Motodrom: the fastest race cars in the world race over the quarter mile of the Hockenheimring.

If you go there once, you'll be hooked forever, because drag racing is the superlative of motor sports.
