Mobil Delvac 1™ LE 5W-30 and Mobilube 1 SHC™ 75W-90 are the key to optimising fuel economy of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes truck fleet.
ExxonMobil and Vodafone McLaren Mercedes have joined forces in a bid to generate a driver-efficiency competition that will mean the team’s truck drivers going head-to-head as they strive to gain more points than their rivals at races in Monaco, Britain and Spain.
The competition will run until the Italian Grand Prix which is September 8, 2013. The truck drivers are competing for £500 worth in shopping vouchers, a grand stand ticket to the British Grand Prix 2014 and a trophy will ultimately awarded at a prize dinner in November 2013. There will also be an award for the runner-up and most improved driver of the season.
The competition, which is open to 17 commercial vehicle drivers, has a similar point scoring system as the Grand Prix (25 points for 1st place) Points are awarded after the race weekend. Drivers are closely monitored and penalised for four main areas: Pedal movement (levels of throttle pressure & brake pedal usage), Engine operation (measurement of optimum engine usage), Idle consumption (degree of idle consumption) and Coasting (level of vehicle coasting).
