Having started the season in the colours of BP Biofuels before switching to ARCO for the series' west coast races Dyson Racing will race in another new livery at Miller Motorsports Park this weekend with Castrol adorning their Mazda powered Lola Coupe.
“That is one of the strengths of the diversity of the venues on the ALMS schedule: as we visit different regions across North America, we are able to align our graphic design with a specific market and what fits best for our sponsors,” says Chris Dyson. “ARCO is a west coast brand and now we are going to markets where Castrol has a strong presence. We drew this livery up during the winter months and will carry it the rest of the season.”
“BP Biofuels remains an engineering partner in the development of alternative fuel sources and their IsoButanol continues to play a strong role in the ALMS' position as the global leader in green racing and our success at the track.”
The race at the Salt Lake City venue signals the resumption of racing in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) seven weeks after the last round at Laguna Seca. “We and our partners, Mazda, BP, AER, Dunlop and Lola have been flat-out during the seven week Le Mans break preparing for the run to the championship as we enter the second part of the season,” Dyson notes. “We will build on our momentum and make it a great second half.”
Castrol have long been a very visible brand in motorsport, the team emphasising the quartet of land speed records set by Castrol-lubricated machinery at Utah's legendary Bonneville Salt Flats amongst a century of involvement in racing.
