Mobil 1 and Walkinshaw Andretti United continue relationship

Mobil 1 and racing team Walkinshaw Andretti United (WAU) have signed a new multi-year contract, extending their three-decade long relationship.

The extension of the contract means Mobil 1 will continue to have co-naming rights for both vehicles and their marquee drivers, Chaz Mostert and Nick Percat.

Bruce Stewart, Team Principal of WAU, said he was pleased about the extension of their partnership.

“Unequivocally, the partnership between the Mobil 1 brand and Walkinshaw Andretti United is renowned in world motorsport, and we are delighted and honoured to have the opportunity to continue three decades together.”

Mobil 1 first partnered with WAU, then Holden Racing Team, in 1994, with drivers Peter Brock and Tomas Mezera, and the team has since chalked up 10 Bathurst victories, eight driver championships, and seven team championships.

“It’s a partnership that runs much deeper than just a sponsorship – it’s a collaboration that we rely upon to achieve our best results. To be entering year 29 of our partnership this year, and 30 in 2023, is a testament to the trust, loyalty, and commitment of Mobil 1 to our team over the journey, and we can’t thank everyone involved enough.”

Joanne Taylor, General Manager of Consumer and B2B of Ampol, which distributes and markets Mobil lubricants in Australia, said she was proud that the relationship is continuing.

“At Ampol, we’re proud to be using our scale, Australia expertise, manufacturing capability and strong customer relationships to bring Mobil lubricants to Australian consumers.

“Together with WAU, Mobil 1 is one of the most celebrated names in the world of domestic motorsport, and I think Australians are in for an exciting season of racing in 2022.”
