ExxonMobil elevates India’s motorsports

ExxonMobil is elevating India’s fast-growing motorsports sector by powering the Indian Racing Festival this year, which features the first-ever F4 Indian Championship in the country and the second season of the Indian Racing League (IRL), being held at Chennai’s Madras International Circuit (MIC) and the new Formula Racing Circuit (FCR). 

India's first franchised-based motorsports league, the IRL Season 2 brings together seven city-based teams. Bringing distinctive standards in competitive motor sporting, IRL has carved a unique niche right from the first year in motor racing, as India’s only four-wheel racing league and the world’s first gender neutral racing championship. The F4 Indian Championship further raises the bar for racing in India.

Vipin Rana, CEO, ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt. Ltd., said: “We are not only building on the success of IRL Season 1 which elevated the nation’s status in global motorsports, but also powering the first ever F4 Indian Championship in the country, which will be a game changer for the sports. The event will further spur the popularity of motorsports in the country.”

Akhilesh Reddy, Director MEIL and Chairman, RPPL, added: “We are proud to collaborate with ExxonMobil for the second consecutive year, reflecting our commitment to provide racers with the confidence they need on track that Mobil 1TM assures for any model of racing car. The partnership will further build a strong motor-racing culture in the country, especially by providing youngers opportunities to pursue motorsports as a career opportunity.”
