KENNOL OILS SHOW GREAT ENDURANCE IN EURO NASCAR
Visiblement, les produits KENNOL devraient de nouveau permettre de grosses performances en Euro NASCAR la saison prochaine. En effet, les voitures ont donné entière satisfaction aux pilotes lors des premiers tests hivernaux. De grands noms du pilotage étaient présents, venus de partout, et tous ont adoré le caractère bestial qui se dégage de la machine une fois à son volant, caractère magnifié par les huiles moteur et transmission KENNOL ULTIMA.
It’s just you, making a difference, and it’s really funny.
Marco MELANDRI, World Champion
▌ THE GREAT ULTIMA OILS
It’s been almost 1 year since KENNOL launched the new ULTIMA range, for Racing and extreme conditions. And part of this range has been developed and tested in partnership with Euro NASCAR, before being the Official Oil of the Championship and all the teams. 11 months after, those great motor and transmission oils are back in winter conditions, but with a whole year experience. And new great drivers at the wheel.
The first two Euro NASCAR Recruitment Days were a resounding success: no less than 80 drivers, coming from all over the world, and with the most disparate backgrounds, took the wheel of a Euro NASCAR car in four days, and were all impressed by the fantastic “Pure Racing” feeling of driving the cars that brought NASCAR to Europe. Selected drivers will receive financial help for their 2018 season in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.
Four NWES cars flawlessly underwent a total of over 120 hours of intense testing, confirming the car’s excellent reputation for reliability and maintenance, and many special guests joined the tests, both in France and Italy. NASCAR legend Bobby Labonte drove in France, while in Italy Formula 1 driver Daniil Kvyat, motorcycling icon Marco Melandri, WTCC driver Kris Richard and Italian TV commentator Guido Meda all had a taste of the KENNOL-serviced cars. Thirteen countries were represented in the two test meetings.
▌ KENNOL INTRODUCED IN THE NASCAR HALL OF FAME!
Most drivers with international experience who had the pleasure to try the cars during these days had the same feeling about the way the car reacted to their will, and performed despite the long runs and drivers changes. And this is exactly what a great lube is confronted to in the most extreme conditions: intense use, big temperature variations, alternation of pit stops and long hot runs…
Daniil KVYAT, Formula 1 Driver: “I immediately had good confidence with the car and it’s good fun to drive it. I really enjoyed myself today. The car is easy to handle and has nice reactivity in the chicanes. It’s very nice and easy and funny.”
Kris RICHARD, FIA ETCC 2016 Champion: “The gear shifting is perfect. There’s the right amount of power and torque. I love it!”
Max TULLMAN, NASCAR Driver: “The car balance is perfect, it feels light and reactive and it’s a lot of fun even in very cold weather. I think the fact it can run 3 seasons on an engine and a gearbox makes it really attractive for teams and drivers.”
Those reactions point out the very essence of Euro NASCAR cars and ULTIMA lubes: great performance AND amazing reliability. That’s how racing and track expertise brings the best solutions for everyday cars and lubes. And that’s also what made the Euro NASCAR car, developed by Team FJ, enter the prestigious NASCAR Hall of Fame a few days ago! Now, France is well represented in this absolute temple of the World’s most viewed racing series.
