The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship roared into town this past July for the July 7-9 weekend. Prototype racecars, LMP3, GTD PRO and GTD classes were just some of the incredible racecars on full display at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario - the only Canadian location where you could watch the IMSA WeatherTech Championship. Among some of the world's wildest racecar competition were the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, IMSA VP Racing Sportscar Challenge, and the Canadian-based Super Production Challenge. We found time between trips from the spectator bleachers to the beer garden to wander into the open paddocks and pits, and chat with some friends of ours - the team at JDC Miller Motorsports, and some of the partners we know and love: LiquiMoly and Unitronic, both of which play an integral part in the JDC Miller Motorsports race program. We also got a chance to chat with one of the drivers of their Gen2 Audi RS3 TCR racecar, and owner of a similar Audi street car, to see where the crossover between street and track takes place with their partners.
The LiquiMoly partnership was chosen for a variety of reasons. Not only is it regarded by the team as the best oil in the business, but it also holds all of the OEM approvals for their genre of applications, being so Euro-focused. They use LiquiMoly in their street cars, as well as their racecars, which stands as a testament to the quality of the LiquiMoly products at play in the harshest conditions that their racecars can put them. The partnership is also mutually beneficial. With all of the development JDC Miller Motorsports and Unitronic do on both the street and the track, there's a plethora of practical and useful data to use for LiquiMoly, and in turn, that helps their partners make sound decisions when it comes to oil. LiquiMoly also helps inform Unitronic customers on recommendations for oil standards and which products to choose, as well as why! Knowledge is everything, after all.
