Front-running Kwik-Fit British Touring Car Championship team BTC Racing is delighted to announce today, Friday, 23rd April, the renewal of its key partnership with high performance automotive lubricant brand Ravenol.
Ravenol, a global force in the manufacture of lubricants for the automotive sector and a world leader in lubrication technology, continues as a prime partner of Brackley-based BTC Racing for the 2021 season where the squad is targeting a major challenge for honours.
Founded in Germany in 1946, the Ravenol brand has become renowned for quality and innovation and with its ‘Forever Faster’ guiding principles the company strives for continued success – a key synergy with the values and competitive DNA of BTC.
As in 2020, for the upcoming season the team’s three Honda Civic Type-R FK8 touring cars – piloted by multiple race winner Josh Cook, reigning Jack Sears Trophy Champion Michael Crees and talented BTCC rookie Jade Edwards – will prominently feature Ravenol branding.
All three drivers were in action at BTC Racing’s home track, Silverstone in Northamptonshire, yesterday during the official championship Media Day and pre-season test. The first three rounds of the season will take place just a fortnight from now at Thruxton in Hampshire on Sunday, 9th May.
Brian Chase – Managing Director, Ravenol UK Ltd:
“It is most gratifying to be chosen as the Official Lubricants Partner to this fantastic team for yet another exciting season in the BTCC. We work hard to produce some of the most technically advanced lubricants in the world and it’s great to see all the effort being appreciated.”
Steve Dudman – BTC Racing Owner and Team Principal:
“Ravenol is a key partner for BTC Racing and we are obviously delighted to have renewed such an important partnership. The values which Ravenol is known for, quality, innovation and a desire to continually strive forward, are shared 100 percent by the BTC Racing team.
“We head into the 2021 season in the BTCC with big ambitions and our focus is on delivering results on track, as well as off-track too, for our key partners like Ravenol. It’s a delight to be working with the team at Ravenol once again this season, one we’re determined will be the most successful yet for BTC Racing.”
