Latus Motors Racing and Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants extend Partnership in 2017
After a remarkably successful launch in the 2016 season, Latus Motors Racing and Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants are even more confident in their quest for the championship in the 2017 MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 series.
Riding the Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants Latus Motors Racing Kawasaki ZX-10R for the first time in 2016, Bobby Fong stood on the podium nine times, including four on the top step to finish second in the final season standings.
“It’s a natural for us to continue our partnership with Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants,” said Latus team owner George Latus. “As the lubricants division of Mercury Marine, their expertise in offshore boat racing has proven invaluable. These guys really understand racing oils! The whole Quicksilver crew are great partners. Marine engines designed and built by Mercury Marine operate at extreme duty cycles, often making top power for hours at a time, so they have formulated a lubrication technology that can stand up to those conditions. That expertise translates well into our industry.”
Mike Stegmann, team engine builder for Latus, said Quicksilver played a major role in their success last year.
“During the 2016 season, the oil formulas provided by Quicksilver worked brilliantly,” said Stegmann. “There were no oil-related powertrain issues. During teardowns our engines looked as though they could go the entire season. This protection enabled us to extend our teardown/refresh intervals. Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants not only allow our motors to go the distance, but to also make more power while doing so.”
Eric Reilly, product marketing manager of Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants, said the partnership creates a perfect formula for winning.
“We are elated to once again help support Bobby Fong and the entire Latus Motors Racing team this year,” said Reilley. “What they accomplished last year by having four wins and finishing second in their class was fantastic. They are a top-notch and professional organization, which makes them the perfect representative of our brand.”
