Lucas Oil has invested significantly in motorsport this season, raising its profile, increasing end user awareness on behalf of motor factors, retailers and garages and proving the quality of performance at the same time.

As part of the Lucas Oils UK Drift Team’s preparations for the 2013 season, the team removed the rear differential as part of its planned maintenance routine. This unit usually performs under extreme pressure, coping with over 1000bhp during most outings.

The unit was stripped and – unexpectedly – found to have no wear issues or damage at all. The condition was found to be almost as new.

“That’s a huge testament to the performance of our Lucas Oil range and in this case, the Lucas Synthetic Gear Oil SAE 75W/90,” says Lucas Oil Managing director Les Downey.

As a result, the team felt confident enough to use in the differential from the start of this season:

“Wear has not been an issue, our team budget has been protected and that’s all thanks to Lucas Gear Oil,” says Lucas Oils UK Drift Team’s spokesman Ciaran Smith.
