Porsche Supercup – the Mobil 1™ Porsche race team

Hartmut Kristen

Vice President Motorsport

It is extremely important for the teams in Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup to have consistent quality and a high level of reliability for all the components on the race car. The Porsche Supercup is raced in all weather conditions around the world. It can be extremely hot in the Middle East or it can be extremely cold at the Nürburgring in Germany, and Mobil 1 lubricants always provide reliability and the best performance for all the race cars on the grid. Aside from the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup there are another 20 race series around the world, from New Zealand, Australia, Japan and China over to Brazil, the United States and many more in Europe. They all use Mobil 1 lubricants.

“You will find exactly the same engine oil in the race car as you will in any production car.”

– Hartmut Kristen, Vice President Motorsport

Hartmut Kristen joined Porsche in 1983 and quickly progressed through the company. In 1994, Hartmut became responsible for customer sport and involved with special and race car projects. In 2004, Hartmut became Porsche’s head of motorsport and is looking to build on Porsche's extensive and illustrious heritage in motorsport.

The use of synthetic Mobil 1 lubricants has been, among other developments, one of the most important steps for us in the many successful races and victories that we have seen throughout the last few years in our partnership with Mobil 1.
