RAVENOL has been an official partner of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship since 2014. From the upcoming season, this partnership will be extended. Henceforth, the lubricant manufacturer from Eastern-Westfalia may refer to itself as the ‘Official Lubricant and Car Care Product Partner’ of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship.
In 2013, the first year of the revived FIA Formula 3 European Championship, Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH, founded in 1946, was already involved with its trade mark RAVENOL as the presenter of the live stream and the technical partner of the Van Amersfoort Racing team. From the very beginning, RAVENOL’s competition manager Martin Huning acknowledged the potential and the international prestige of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, so that the company became involved as an official partner of the top-level junior race series from 2014. Now, the next step follows for 2016: from this year, RAVENOL will not only have the title ‘Official Lubricant and Car Care Product Partner’ of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, but the competition lubricants RAVENOL RSS 10W-60 (engine) and RAVENOL Racing Gearoil (gearbox), plus the brake fluid RAVENOL Racing Brake Fluid R325+ were officially included into the FIA Formula 3 European Championship regulations, allowing the teams to use these products in competition. Moreover, the eye-catching blue-and-yellow RAVENOL logo will adorn the upper engine cover of all Formula 3 cars, the drivers’ suits, the podium and the sponsor backdrop.
“The FIA Formula 3 European Championship is a dynamic and successful race series that has developed in a very positive way in the past years. Here, the world’s best junior drivers are up against each other. This environment suits us perfectly. RAVENOL is just as modern, aspiring and efficient and our products are in top positions,” Martin Hunting, RAVENOL’s Director Motorsport says.
“It is always good when a partner is happy, continues its involvement and grows together with us,” says Walter Mertes, CEO of the Formel-3-Vermarktungs GmbH, organiser of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. “We, too, are very happy about the partnership with RAVENOL that exceeds the mere presence of the brand. Thus, both sides can mutually benefit from each other.”
