oil developer and producer Millers Oils has signed a deal to become the
official oil technical partner for Caterham motorsport, from grassroots Academy
level to the top Superlight R300 division during the 2014 season. This was
stated in a company press release from Millers Oils.
Millers Oils, founded in 1887, was the first to offer diesel specific engine
oil for cars and continues to push boundaries to earn its place as a world
leader in the technology of low friction. In January 2012, Millers Oils
launched nanotechnology engine oils.
deal between Millers Oils and Caterham demonstrates the latter’s acknowledgement
of the durability and efficiency benefits provided by the innovative Nanodrive
range, which reduces friction to increase the available power and reduce
component wear without compromising film strength at lower viscosities.
“We’re delighted to be a partner of Caterham
Motorsport this season, it’s testament to our reputation within the industry as
well the success of Nanodrive,” says Nevil Hall, Joint Managing Director,
Millers Oils. “Our oils have been proven to provide excellent results in previous
dyno tests, including providing an 8hp increase on a Mercedes SLS AMG GT3
racing car, with nothing more than an oil change. This year will demonstrate
Nanodrive’s capacity in a motorsport environment and Millers Oils is looking
forward to seeing the improvement we can make to Caterham in the coming season,”
Originally developed for motorsport
applications, Millers Oils’ award-winning Nanodrive range has received great
acclaim since its launch for road-going applications in 2013. Nanodrive has
been proven to reduce friction by up to 25pc and release up to 5pc more
horsepower from the engine while maintaining excellent oil film durability.
This combination of reduced friction and increased film strength provides great
benefits to motorsport companies including improved performance and proven
longevity of engine and transmission components.
Simon Lambert, Chief Motorsport and Technical
Officer of Caterham Cars, says: “We are impressed by the reputation Millers
Oils has built since its launch of the Nanodrive range and we are pleased to
have them on board to support Caterham Motorsport’s acclaimed programme of
