Champion Stays Ahead Of The Trend Towards Low Viscosity Oils

Today’s engines are becoming smaller while they are still expected to produce more power, reduce CO2 emissions, and offer greater fuel economy. These developments also lead to new specifications and requirements for engine oils, mainly pushing for an increased demand for low viscosity lubricants.

For modern engines, the viscosity of the oil is ideally expected to be as thin as possible. At the same time, the oil film has to be even much stronger than previous 5W40 viscosity oils to be able to protect the engine parts at every moment.

With more than 65 years of experience, Champion Lubricants remains at the forefront of engine developments and brings the market the groundbreaking lubricants that perfectly fit the requirements of the modern engines!

Concrete specifications, thinner oil

A good example of that is the ACEA C5 specification of the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), requiring a strong fuel economy and encouraging the use of thinner lubricants, which guarantees fuel economy from the moment you start the engine.

As a brand constantly breaking new grounds, Champion has launched a number of new low viscosity lubricants - 0W30 and 0W20 - that meet the most demanding market requirements such as ACEA C5 among many others.

Will Max win at home?
By Graham Duxbury @TheRealDux


The seaside circuit at Zandvoort in Holland, renowned for many F1 triumphs and tragedies, returns to the calendar this coming weekend thanks to the enormous popularity of Max Verstappen. Will he win at home?

Zandvoort has hosted many memorable races. For example, in 1959 it was the scene of Jo Bonnier’s only F1 win and the only win for the front-engined BRM P25.

Race fans will remember Jim Clark’s remarkable win in the 1967 Dutch GP at the wheel of the brand-new Lotus 49 Cosworth Ford, an iconic design which also contributed to SA F1 Championship successes for John Love and Dave Charlton.

James Hunt labelled the 1975 Dutch GP at Zandvoort “the race of my life” after he held off Niki Lauda’s hard-charging Ferrari to give the basically amateur Hesketh team its only F1 win by a scant margin (pictured).

How many Zandvoort memories do you recall?
