Mobil 1 technology

Le Mans is commonly known as the Grand Prix of endurance and efficiency with the key to success or failure being determined by the reliability and performance of the technology. Mobil 1 lubricants are used throughout the Porsche 919 Hybrid and Toyota TS050 Hybrid in the LMP1 class, and the Corvette C7.R and Porsche 911 RSR in the GTE Pro class, to help ensure sustained performance and maximum efficiency.

Other Mobil 1 supported teams

Mobil 1 supports several factory and private teams competing at Le Mans. In addition to our partnerships with the Porsche 919 Hybrid and the Toyota TS050 Hybrid, Mobil 1 lubricants are also used in the other production based categories with manufactures including Corvette and Porsche.

Porsche 911 RSR

In 2013 Porsche and Mobil 1 officially returned to Le Mans in the production based GTE category taking first and second place with the 911 RSR. Mobil 1 prides itself on being an integral part of the cars, supporting the reliability, performance and durability of all Mobil 1 supported cars competing at Le Mans. The 911 RSR’s 4.0L flat-six engine runs Mobil 1™ 0W-40, the exact same motor oil found in every Porsche engine coming off the line every day in Zuffenhausen.

Corvette C7.R

Mobil 1 together with Corvette Racing have enjoyed considerable success at Le Mans including earning endurance racing’s Triple Crown in 2015 – the first GT team to do so since 2000. Mobil 1 has been the Official Motor Oil of Corvette Racing since 1996 providing a unique combination of experience, expertise and innovative thinking. This has helped to deliver consistent performance and contribute to eight class victories since 2001. The Corvette C7.R’s 5.5L small-block V8 runs Mobil 1™ Racing 0W-50, a racing-only engine oil which is also available to any racer for their race car.
