MOBIL 1 AND WAU TEAM UP FOR 27TH YEAR
[Melbourne, Australia] Walkinshaw Andretti United has today announced that Mobil 1™ has once again shown their loyalty to the Team, continuing on as a Co-Naming Rights Partner for 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship for an incredible 27th consecutive year.
The multi-year deal will see them remain with the Team into the future.
The Mobil 1 relationship with the Team stems back to 1994, when they joined the then Holden Racing Team and drivers Peter Brock and Tomas Mezera.
Since then, Mobil 1, the world’s leading synthetic motor oil, and the team have shared many successes together, including nine Bathurst wins, eight driver championships and seven team championships.
Unwavering in their support during that period, Mobil 1 have had an increased presence on both cars since 2017, with the formation of Mobil 1™ HSV Racing.
They retain their iconic position on the bonnet of both Walkinshaw Andretti United entries for the 2020 season.
Both Mobil 1 backed Walkinshaw Andretti United Holden ZB Commodores will be revealed in the near future, before the first official test day of 2020 on February 18 at The Bend Motorsport Park.
