The VW Touareg world road-rally

The world famous recordsman driver Rainer Zietlow decided to make a unique rally Magadan – Lisbon using LUKOIL GENESIS motor oil. Rainer and his team members – a racing driver and cameraman Marius Biela and a journalist Peter Bakanov (auto.mail.ru) are decided to make a trip15 200 kilometers by land from the most eastern city of the Asian continent to the most western city in Europe in less than 8 days. It’ll become a new world record for Rainer Zietlow’s team. The start of the project is on the 30th of June, 2016.

LUKOIL Lubricants Company will provide the technical support of the team car VW Touareg V6 TDI clean diesel. VW Touareg V6 TDI will be filled with LUKOIL GENESIS VN SAE 5W-30 motor oil that was approved for modern engines of Volkswagen and suitable for vehicles with long-life service intervals (VW 504 00/507 00 specification). This auto rally in difficult road conditions will be another test for checking the effectiveness of the "motor oil with a steel character."

Regular selections of the used GENESIS oil will be carried out throughout the journey for the laboratory research. Samples will be sent to a leading independent laboratory in Germany. Test results of the samples will be officially announced after the completion of the travel in September 2016 at press conferences in dealer VW centers in Russia and abroad.
