Royal Purple Australia has officially launched “Oil Stars,” a comprehensive lineup of sponsored cars and drivers which will stage an all-out assault on the revered WTAC event at the Eastern Creek Raceway on August 10th-11th.
Leading the Royal Purple Oil Stars charge in the Pro class is Garth Walden in the Tilton Interiors Mitsubishi Evo 9. IS Motorsport Open class competitor and Oil Star Nik Kalis (Lancer Evo 9) will be out to defend his 2011 class win, while teammates Jason Naidoo (Open class, Lancer Evo 8MR), and Clubsprint competitors Dan Farquhar (Lancer Evo 8), Chris Tiqui (Lancer Evo 9) and David Steinwede (Lancer Evo 8) will also be vying for line honors. The AVO Turbo VL Commodore of Jason Clements will also fly the Royal Purple flag in the Open Class, while Jake ‘Drift Squid’ Jones (Hi Octane Racing Nissan S13) will let it all hang out for Royal Purple in the Drift Challenge.
Royal Purple Australia Managing Director, Eian “EJ” Jones, recognises the importance of motorsport as a proving ground for Royal Purple’s range of performance synthetic lubricants, and is proud to have an active involvement in Superlap.
“Being a major sponsor we love to be heavily involved, not just as an exhibitor as we look forward to this year’s exciting event. It’s been very rewarding to hear the terrific feedback from customers about their experiences with our product, plus the updates from our sponsored drivers after running Royal Purple oil through their race cars. We were ecstatic with our 2011 results, and we know we can help more drivers and vehicles and go even faster in 2012.”
Last year Royal Purple were involved with big-hitting international team Sierra Sierra, whose Mitsubishi Evo 8 ran second by the narrowest of margins in Pro Class with David Empringham at the wheel. In the Open class, the Royal Purple-backed IS Motor Racing/Piazza Doro Mitsubishi Evo of Nicholas Kalis stole the show, claiming the top spot on the podium.
“We just missed out on a podium in Clubsprint class too, so naturally we’ve got high expectations in each class with our 2012 Royal Purple Oil Stars Drivers,” said Eian.
