True to its commitment to delivering market-leading advanced fuel and lubricants to consumers while supporting the motorsports industry, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) co-presented the MSCC Miata Spec Series inaugural season together with Mazda Philippines and the Manila Sports Car Club (MSCC) at the 4,189-kilometer Clark International Speedway.
“Together with Mazda Philippines and the Manila Sports Car Club, we seek to empower motorsports enthusiasts through our innovative, top-of-the-line motor oils,” PSPC Vice President and General Manager for Mobility Randy del Valle said during the opening event, where 20 brand new Mazda MX-5 units competed in a 10-lap race for the first round of the four-round race series.
Since 2013, Pilipinas Shell and Mazda Philippines have successfully collaborated as business partners. Realizing that maximizing engine is an important element in car racing, Mazda Philippines chose Shell V-Power to energize the Mazda MX-5 units used by the MSCC Miata Spec Series contestants.
Shell V-Power has Dynaflex Technology designed for improved performance and efficiency. It contains powerful cleaning molecules designed to help remove and prevent the build-up of performance-robbing engine deposits.
“This is a dream come true not just for us at Mazda Philippines, but for the Manila Sports Car Club as well,” remarked Mazda Philippines President and CEO Steven Tan. “It was a long time coming, and it’s the result of our blood, sweat, and tears. It’s truly a passion project, and I’m glad that MSCC members were able to celebrate driving with the most-raced car in the world—the MX-5.”
Pilipinas Shell has been supplying fully synthetic Shell Helix Ultra Professional lubricants for Mazda Philippines’ dealership network for almost a decade now. The partnership expanded in 2018, with Shell becoming the recommended fuel for all Mazda PH customers and their fleet of vehicles.
