Professional endurance and sprint races are as grueling on engines as they are thrilling to view from the audience. When competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (IWSC), BMW Team RLL knows that to successfully push their M6 GTLMs and their TwinPower Turbo engines to the limit, everything needs to be operating at full throttle. So they Made the Switch to Pennzoil® Synthetics in January of 2015.
In 2017, the team celebrated four GTLM victories with a final win closing the season at Petit Le Mans. The No. 25 BMW, driven by Bill Auberlen and Alexander Sims, was in the thick of the championship battle down to the final laps in 2017. They did all they could to win the final race, but ultimately finished second overall in the final standings. Their teammates, Martin Tomczyk and John Edwards, came home seventh overall in the 2017 season. In 2018, BMW Team RLL will continue to push performance to the next level behind the wheels of their all-new BMW M8 GTE racecars.
The Pennzoil® PurePlus® Technology process converts natural gas into a clear base oil with fewer of the impurities found in crude oil. The pure, clear base oil enables Pennzoil to develop superior motor oils that are race ready…regardless of the finish line.
With proven extreme temperature performance, unsurpassed wear protection and horsepower loss protection, Pennzoil is there to give BMW Team RLL the performance demanded by The Ultimate Driving Machine® with the same oil you can pick up from the shelf: Pennzoil Platinum® Euro with PurePlus® Technology.
