Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants and Latus Racing team announce their partnership for the 2016 MotoAmerica season.
Fond du Lac, WI- March 23, 2016- It’s a year of firsts for Latus Racing; a new bike, a new class, and a new oil partner. “We are excited to be affiliated with this group of fine folks, and we couldn’t be happier with this new partnership.” said Eric Reilley, Product Manager at Quicksilver. “We’ll be standing shoulder-to-shoulder helping Latus squeeze out as many of those green Kawasaki ponies as possible among the sea of blue bikes around us. They will be in a very unique situation, which we really like. We are also in a unique situation in that, at our core, we’re both an engine manufacturer and an oil formulator for high performance engines. We know it will be a challenging year but with veterans like Dave Anthony and Bobby Fong on the throttles, we know it will be an exciting one!”
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Quicksilver on board! Owned by Mercury Marine, the largest builder of marine propulsion systems in the world, they have been developing, testing and providing lubricants for some of the most demanding engine applications worldwide. As a long-time racing and high performance enthusiast, I’ve been well aware of Mercury Marine’s involvement and dominance in high performance boat racing. Off shore boat racing places huge strains on engines and equipment and so does motorcycle racing! Mercury Marine formulated their own line of Quicksilver lubricants to allow engines and drive components to survive in this demanding application. They are now making available their considerable lubrication engineering talent to the Powersport field. We are excited and honored to partner with this great brand and great company”, said George Latus. In addition to Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants, Latus would also like to thank additional sponsor/partners; K-Tech Suspension, Hindle, ET, Speedcell, GB Racing, Orient Express, Catalyst Composites, Dyno Jet, FTECU, Zero Gravity, Cox, Secrets of Speed, VET Motorsports, Bickle, Drive Systems USA, Superlight, Hillsboro Kawasaki.
