Total, the world’s fourth-largest international energy company and sports car manufacturer Aston Martin and its racing team, Aston Martin Racing are proud to announce the renewal of their partnership — a driver of excellence — to 2019.

 

Total and Aston Martin are pleased to extend their partnership, originally signed in May 2016.

Two years of working side by side in the FIA World Endurance Championship enabled Aston Martin Racing to win the GTE Pro 2016 and GTE AM 2017 drivers’ title, along with a prestigious victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2017 in the GTE Pro class. Total thus extends its technical contribution by becoming involved in developing the new Aston Martin Vantage GTE. The new car will compete in the World Endurance Championship 2018-2019 Super Season, which will kick off with the 2018 WEC Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps and culminate in the 2019 24 hours of Le Mans, both  races being run twice over the course of the season

Total Lubricants delivers its technical expertise through a trackside engineer and oil analysis laboratory at each World Endurance Championship race event. Acquired over many years in Formula 1, this indisputable expertise in elite racing is both unique and indispensable — and available only to Aston Martin Racing in the FIA WEC.

Total and Aston Martin work together closely to develop lubricants specific to the British carmaker’s engines.

Aston Martin recommends TOTAL QUARTZ INEO DYNAMICS 0W-20 for the Aston Martin DB11’s V12 5.2ltr twin-turbo engine.

Total Lubricants will also offer a second product for both the V8-powered DB11 and the recently launched Vantage.

TOTAL QUARTZ engine oil played a decisive role in Aston Martin Racing’s success, improving the performances and reliability of our FIA WEC race results. We’re very pleased to see the partnership extended to our coupes and roadsters and our aftermarket services, so that Aston Martin customers continue to benefit from the technical advances we make on the track with our partner Total”, said Simon Sproule, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd.
