This year’s 60th anniversary of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring marks the 18th consecutive year ExxonMobil has been the title sponsor of the legendary race.

“ExxonMobil is proud to continue the association of the Mobil 1 motor oil brand to one of America’s truly great racing events,” said Tim Hinchman, Sales Director – Strategic Global Alliances, Mobil 1.  “With the majority of the cars on the Sebring track using Mobil 1 motor oil, the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring brings together some of the best fans, race teams, manufacturers, drivers and sponsors in the automotive world.  Furthermore, this partnership greatly enhances some of our most esteemed OEM relationships.”

“The continuation of Mobil 1 as our name and title sponsor is a result of a very successful long-term partnership,” said Sebring President and General Manager Tres Stephenson. “Sebring International Raceway is proud to continue this relationship with Mobil 1.”

The close relationship with Mobil 1 and motorsports provides a unique platform to test new lubricant technology and prove the performance and endurance of Mobil 1, the world’s leading synthetic motor oil.

“Motorsports is a testing ground to develop and demonstrate our lubricant technology, which ultimately ends up in the Mobil 1 motor oil consumers find at their local retailer and installer,” said Hinchman. “Whether it’s a grueling twelve hour race or a Sunday afternoon drive, Mobil 1 motor oil provides excellent protection and performance to keep engines running at their best.”

This year, Sebring International Raceway hosts the opening round of the new FIA World Endurance Championship, running in the 12-hour classic simultaneously with the American Le Mans Series.

From that time, Mobil 1's presence on race tracks and circuits has grown by global proportions. Today, Mobil 1 synthetic oil is relied on for its ability to deliver exceptional engine performance and protection even under some of the most extreme conditions by automotive technicians, race car drivers, team owners and the world’s leading automotive manufacturers

Along with its status as the title sponsor of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, Mobil 1 enjoys a long association with many of world's most popular and successful race teams, including Stewart-Haas Racing’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes’ Formula One team, Corvette Racing’s American Le Mans Series team, as well as the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup—the world’s fastest international one-make series.
