Exol Lubricants continues support for Thailand distributor in local touring car racing series

Exol Lubricants is once again taking to the track in Thailand in the Super Turbo S.E.A Zone Challenge for 2023 via its local distributor, Shinsiri Ltd.

The Exol-supported, 1.5-litre engine Toyota Vios car began the season in March at the Chang International Circuit, in the northeast of Thailand, where the team raced to first place in both Race 1&2 in the NZ class.

The racing car’s engine is underpinned by Exol’s Optima Sport 10W-60 lubricant, which is manufactured from fully synthetic base stocks and the latest additive technology available, providing outstanding performance and durability for the most demanding conditions.

Optima Sport 10W-60 is suitable for normally aspirated and turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, especially high-powered engines running at elevated temperatures. Other benefits include high film strength for superior engine protection, low volatility to greatly reduce oil consumption, excellent anti-wear protection and high shear stability.

Paul Eastwood, Export Sales Manager at Exol Lubricants, comments: “We’re pleased to be supporting Shinsiri Ltd. and the Exol Toyota Pattaya 1998 racing team again this season. Exol’s Optima Sport 10W-60 oil gives racing drivers the confidence that their cars will continue to run at high performance in demanding conditions.

“It’s important for us to support our export customers with their marketing initiatives especially in eye-catching, high-octane settings like this championship. Kobchai and his team have had a great start to the 2023 season and we’re looking forward to seeing them continue this momentum at the next round!”

Kobchai Chinthamraks, owner of Shinsiri Ltd, exclusive distributor of Exol Lubricants in Thailand, said: “We hope to be a front runner just like last year where the team were crowned champions! Having Exol under the bonnet gives our driver peace of mind that the Exol racing car will perform every time. We’d like to thank Paul and the rest of the Exol team for their support for a second year in a row.

“Despite the electrical problems our team suffered at last weekend’s event, our driver was able to push the car to first overall and first in class on lap 4/12- from starting last on the grid!. However, the ECU problem stopped the car on lap 11 with only one lap to go. We are very disappointed but looking forward to getting back on the track in June to fight for the Championship in rounds five and six.”

The Super Turbo S.E.A Zone Challenge final two rounds will take place from 16 – 18 June at the Chang International Circuit, Buriram.
