WTCR 2.0 Turbo Engine
Description of situation
Engine is developed for competition use. All engines are sealed, only performance benefits can be achieved by altering lubricants such as the engine oil. Eurol Racing 0W-40 was compared to Elf HTX 840 between two WTCR cars with equal aero set-up.
|Lubrication Point||Turbo engine|
|Product||Eurol Specialty Racing 0W-40|
Eurol Specialty Racing 0W-40 offers a lower friction coefficient, from the cold start to the engine on operating temperature. Combined with outstanding wear protection, top speed increases of 1 kph have been measured on low top-speed tracks like Zolder. This is a direct result of lower friction in the engine and drivetrain.
Francois Verbist, Team Manager, Comtoyou Racing: “Approximately 0.8 kph faster on average for car equipped with Racing 0W-40, even though the track (Zolder, Belgium) is not suited to top speed runs, as the car only gets up to 210 kph.”
