Lonsee – German lubricant manufacturer RAVENOL and Team MRS GT Racing have agreed upon a technology partnership for the GT area of the Lonsee, Germany based motor-racing team. Team MRS relies on the high-performance lubricants provided by the Ravensberg based manufacturer in both the NISSAN NISMO GTR GT3 competing in the ADAC GT Masters and the Porsche 991 Cup vehicles in the Hankook 24h Series. In addition to the high-quality engine oils, RAVENOL also supplies the team with other products such as gearbox oil and brake fluid.
Last weekend, for instance, a Porsche 991 GT3 Cup run by Team MRS made it to the podium in the Barcelona 24h Race – of course equipped with RAVENOL lubricants.

“For us, MRS GT Racing represents a new partner offering us the opportunity to use and enhance our racing oils such as the RAVENOL RSS 10W-60 and the Racing Gearoil as well as our racing brake fluid in the Nissan Nissmo GTR GT3.
