Mobil 1, powering CarMechanica, is proud to announce the signing of a new performance partnership with the #24 Wall Racing TCR Honda Civic Type-R – driven by John Martin.
This is a great partnership for Mobil 1. TCR is one of the fastest growing categories in Australian motorsport and the Wall Racing prepared Honda has proven to be a strong championship contender given its second overall finish in 2019.
Honda’s official racing partner, J.A.S. Motorsport have tuned the homologated Type-R’s 2.0-litre turbocharged engine to produce 254kW (340hp) for scintillating on-track performance. However, the race engine is closely related to the road engine – with much of the extra 27kW (35hp) coming from not having to meet stringent emissions targets.
This is why the advanced technology Mobil 1 employed to withstand the unrelenting rigueurs of motorsport, is the same advanced technology Mobil 1 uses to protect performance road cars like the Honda Type-R. No wonder the world’s top performance brands including Porsche, McLaren, Aston Martin, Mercedes-AMG, Bentley, Nissan GT-R, HSV, Corvette and Chevrolet Performance all factory fill with Mobil 1. It’s in high-performance road and racing applications – like TCR – that you see the real benefits of Mobil 1.
With support from Mobil 1 and CarMechanica, combined with Wall Racing and John Martin’s drive and determination, you can be certain of seeing a lot of car #24 in victory lane during the 2020 TCR Australia Touring Car Series.
