OKS supports the racing team of the OTH Regensburg university in the Formula Student
Racing to success with high-quality speciality lubricants
The racing team of the "OTH Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg" has been participating successfully for several years in the Formula
Student – an international competition for the young with venues on all continents. In addition to the driving dynamics characteristics of the racing car and the fastest laps, static disciplines such as the engineering design and costs are also evaluated. In the new season OKS Spezialschmierstoffe GmbH will for the first time be the main sponsor of the young racing team.
"Since 2010 we have been participating not only in the classical design competition, in which a racing car with combustion engine has to be designed, but also in the Formula Student Electric", Michael Mosandl, Team Manager of the OTH Regensburg racing team declares. "We depend on the best products from leading companies to ensure that our racing cars can keep pace with high requirements from both competitions."
Reliable lubrication plays an important role in particular at the drive components of a vehicle. The demands placed on the lubricant include not only excellent performance, but also temperature resistance and long service life Speciality lubricants from OKS are used wherever mechanical components have to produce maximum performance under extreme demands – which is particularly the case in motor sport.
"OKS is pleased to have the opportunity of getting into contact with the designers of tomorrow through our sponsoring", adds Christian Göggelmann, Spokesperson of the Management of OKS. "The Formula Student is for us also the opportunity to test our products under the hardest real-life conditions. We wish the team of the OTH Regensburg every success in their next race – keep racing!".
