Wayne, PA (USA) — The PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS motorcycle racing team competed in the 79th Daytona 200 . The race is regarded as the largest motorcycle event in the world.
The team was officially listed in the Daytona 200 as “Team PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS Powered by Penz13,” under the direction of trophy-winning former motorcyclist Rico Penzkofer.
High-performance, Futureproof Motorcycle Engine Oils
No matter the results of the race, the team achieved a first in motorcycle racing history: this was the first time that a team competed with high-performance motorcycle racing engine oils made from sustainable base oils.
These specially formulated motorcycle racing oils were made with PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS®—a futureproof technology that not only transforms used oil into new oil, but reduces emissions by 90% during the refining process (compared with traditional oil refining).
Together, the team has proven that sustainable, futureproof engine oils have what it takes to deliver outstanding performance, in one of the most challenge motorcycle races in the world while helping to protect our natural oil resources and the environment.
The fastest test lab on two wheels…
Andreas Schueppel, President & CEO of PURAGLOBE remarked that racing in the Daytona 200 is like having “the world’s fastest R&D lab for futureproof technology and high-performance motor oils on two wheels.” And competing in the Daytona 200 gave us proof that our innovations deliver outstanding performance, even under these challenging conditions.”
Dr. Soenke Moehr, PURAGLOBE’s Global Director of Sales and Marketing explained, “what we’ve done for passenger car motor oils, we’ve now done for motorcycle engine oils. We’re excited… and we’re looking forward to making our high-performance, futureproof motorcycle engine oils available both on and off the track.”
Sustainability & More…
Schueppel also added that “racing in the Daytona 200 was an important milestone for R&D, but since our first blending America is also located in Florida, it was important to show how we can deliver sustainable, high-performance racing oils right here… in our own backyard.”
In following its long-term plans for regional market transformation, PURAGLOBE plans to take used oil from the Tampa area and the rest of Florida, and transform it into new, futureproof base oils—and all kinds of advanced, high-performance motor oils. The company hopes to soon take used oil from the market, and reduce, if not eliminate the need to take virgin oil out of the ground.
Futureproof motorcycle engine oils underway…
Dr. Soenke Moehr explained that the Daytona 200 race has delivered the exceptional motor oil performance they were demanding. And now, the company plans to offer new array of motorcycle racing oils for the consumer market as well, which will be offered in Europe and the United States.
“It’s a winning combination,” Dr. Moehr explained. “Motorcycle enthusiasts can do their part for sustainability while getting outstanding performance all from one motor oil.”
