Ralf Schumacher member of a family of motor-racing enthusiasts and successfully competed in several top-class-motor-racing categories. His brother Michael set a world record by winning the Formula One World Championship seven times while his son David and his nephew Mick also are successful kart and single-seater drivers.
In 2016, the former Formula One and DTM ace began to use his experience and knowledge RAVENOL’s engineering consultant. Now, RAVENOL and Schumacher will design and develop high-performance lubricants based on poly-alpha-olefins for motor racing and the use in particularly adverse operating conditions.
The successful long-term cooperation began in karting and single-seater racing. The close and intense collaboration now also is reflected by the product development resulting in an entire new racing-oil range launched now and recommended by Ralf Schumacher. The dynamic RS on the oil can’s front-side label (RS stands for Ralf Schumacher) is placed well visibly on the bins of seven already completely designed and developed products.
In consideration of the fact that more and more motor-racing categories are contested with close-to-production vehicles, enhancing the lubricants to a performance level that also meets the motor-racing demands represented a logical step for RAVENOL. A particularly good example for this fact is the RAVENOL VMP 5W-30 – the only motor-racing oil in the Audi Motorsport sport-component catalogue for the Audi RS3 LMS TCR (p. 43) – that has got official OEM for the use in the day-to-day traffic by Audi, BMW, Porsche, Seat, Skoda, Mercedes and VW at the same time. Accordingly, the brand developed a new product range of Mid-SAPS engine oils meeting the ACEA C3 quality-level demands – RAVENOL RUP SAE 5W-40 und RAVENOL REP SAE 5W-30 – as well as the Full-SAPS oil RAVENOL RSP SAE 5W-30 for the quality level ACEA A3/B4.
