LIQUI MOLY brings FIA-certified two-stroke oil for racing karts onto the marketJanuary 2012 – The motor oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY brings a special oil for the most demanding requirements onto the market: Pro Kart kart oil– officially certified by the FIA.
Compared with motor oils for automobiles, motor oil for racing karts is only a tiny market for LIQUI MOLY. Not a market in which a lot of money can be earned. "But that's not the most important thing in this case", says Marketing Manager Peter Baumann. "Here we can prove our technological competence."
Conventional two-stroke oils quickly reach their performance limits with the high speeds of racing motors. Inadequate lubrication can ruin the motor and in any case costs valuable seconds due to increased friction. "We have specially developed our Pro Kart oil for racing use", according to Baumann. Very special additive packages allow for high performance, so that the kart also provides full motor performance throughout the entire course, even at maximum load. The international motorsport organization FIA has officially approved the oil.
LIQUI MOLY Pro Kart doesn't change the octane rating of the gasoline and keeps the combustion chamber and pistons free of sedimentation and contaminants. These would otherwise increase friction, have a negative influence on combustion and thus result in performance losses. "We want drivers to be able to perform at their best in the pursuit of success, and with our optimal motor oil provide an important basic prerequisite", Baumann explains.
The LIQUI MOLY brand is not unknown in the racing world. Involved in Formula 1 years ago, the company is today the main sponsor of the LIQUI MOLY Team Engstler in the World Touring Car Championship, which had its best season in 2011 with private team and driver ranking victories. In kart sport, LIQUI MOLY supports the Energy Corse Kart Team, which has already won several European championship titles.About LIQUI MOLY
