G-Energy oils for the second time are tested by Africa

17 JANUARY 2018
January 14 at Pink lake in Senegal the Africa Eco Race rally raid has been finished. G-Energy Team won “silver”, finishing the second in overall ranking.

The race officially started in Monaco on December 31, 2017, and then the teams had to overcome the distance of more than 6000 kilometers for 15 days on heavy terrain in Morocco, Mauritania and Senegal. G-Energy Team, whose Mini All4 Racing sports car was topped up with G-Energy Racing 15W-50 engine oil, with dignity fought for the first place, intending to repeat the result of the past year of debut.

All the days of the competition, working oil samples were carried out to transfer for analysis, both in the company's laboratory and in independent research centers.

Vladimir Vasiliev, pilot, G-Energy Team:
"We didn't plan to give up, we fought to repeat the last year' result and be the first. We did well, but in sports there is always a place for surprises - one of the racing days there was the annoying breakdown, we lost time. But the equipment in general worked good - it is the merit of our team and, of course, the result of use of G-Energy oils, that once again confirmed its high quality!"
