Drift King of Kings champion, Steve Biagioni, and BTCC driver, Mike Bushell, will be meeting fans and signing autographs at the upcoming Autosport International Show (8-11 January 2015, Birmingham NEC). The Millers Oils’ supported drivers will be on the stand on the Saturday and Sunday; their cars — a Nissan S13 200SX and a BTCC Ford Focus — will be there for the duration of the show. Visitors to the stand will also be able to discuss lubrication issues and solutions with a Millers Oils technical specialist.

Millers Oils provides nanotechnology lubricants to Bushell, who will be driving for AmD Tuning in next season’s British Touring Car Championship and Biagioni, who will continue his drift campaign. The Nanodrive® oils used in both disciplines incorporate nanotechnology to reduce friction without compromising film strength; this reduces parasitic loses, wear and fuel consumption, while simultaneously improving power and torque to provide the competitive edge that drivers and teams look for.

“We’re passionate about supporting motorsport teams, as it is a valuable proving ground for our technologies in a range of demanding environments,” says Jason Lavender, Business Development Manager for Motorsport, Millers Oils. “We experienced some fantastic results with our supported drivers in 2014, with over 100 podiums across more than 15 disciplines including Biagioni’s ‘King of Kings’ title win and Fortec’s British F3 championship success.”

Jason Lavender continues: “It’s great for us to have two racing champions on our stand at Autosport International, who can testify to the durability benefits and additional power that Nanodrive® can provide.”

The company’s recent £500,000 investment in its research and development centre has led to the launch of several problem-solving lubricant products and services in 2014, including Diesel Power Ecomax, a fuel additive that enables consumers to experience the benefits of premium fuels at a reduced cost. Additionally, visitors to the Millers Oils stand at the Autosport show can speak to a technical advisor about lubricant solutions and better understand how they can improve the performance and durability of their vehicles.
