The Formula 1 driver Nico Hülkenberg, who was recently appointed by Renault, has announced that he will make a guest appearance in the German GT3 series. Behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo belonging to the mcchip-dkr team, this Formula 1 driver with many years of experience will have to assert himself from the outset against top drivers such as Audi driver Pierre Kaffer, BMW factory driver Jens Klingmann and also Maximilian Götz from the Mercedes customer team HTP-Winward Motorsport.
RAVENOL Motorsport director Martin Huning: “We are really looking forward to having Nico Hülkenberg with us at the GT3-Sport, and his guest participation at the ADAC GT Masters on the Nürburgring will definitely enhance the race. I can confirm that Nico passed the initial tests on the Nürburgring with confidence. This is particularly a credit to the professional work of mcchip-dkr of Mechernich, a team which is already part of the GT and long-distance racing sport, who we support as technical partner.”
Danny Kubasik: “On the one hand, we value the collaboration with the oil experts at RAVENOL very much – we can only confirm the very high performance these oils deliver for our racing cars. On the other hand, we also place our confidence in the RAVENOL engine and transmission oils designed for “road vehicles” in our “day-to-day business”, which we use in our development centre after all chip tunings and performance upgrades and can recommend without reservation.”
Since the beginning of 2010, RAVENOL has been supporting the “Super sports car league” and supplies selected racing teams with high-performance products which are all made in Germany. Consequently, RAVENOL joined the ranks of its partners as the official lubricant partner in 2016. All participants can use supplies such as racing oils for engines and transmissions, coolants, racing brake fluids and other products manufactured by the lubricant manufacturer from Werther.
The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo, like the predecessor model Gallardo, is powered by a 10-cylinder 5.2 litre naturally aspirated engine with a solid 500 bhp, depending on the BoP (Balance of Performance). In principle, it is advisable to use a relatively viscous lubricant – with an elevated high-temperature viscosity – for such powerful engines that are operated at full capacity.
The Lamborghini factory in the Italian Sant’Agata Bolognese has been developing and building the Huracán GT3 since 2015. In 2018, this company steeped in tradition presented the latest phase in the evolution of the Huracán, the GT3 Evo – which we will now be able to see.
