The renewed collaboration marks the 18^th consecutive year in which the Mobil
1 brand has been a major associate sponsor for Corvette Racing and the
“Official Lubricant of Corvette Racing.”

“Our affiliation with ExxonMobil and Mobil 1 lubricants has been a
tremendously successful partnership in the garage and on the track, ultimately
helping us win more races,” said Jeff Chew, Manager Business Strategy and
Operations for Chevrolet Racing. “It’s such a profound benefit to have a
sponsor like Mobil 1 that also contributes lubricant technologies to help us
optimize powertrain performance, improve fuel economy benefits and increase
horsepower output without sacrificing engine durability.”

ExxonMobil engineers work closely with Pratt & Miller and Corvette Racing to
develop and test new lubricant technologies that touch nearly every moving
part of the racecar – protecting against wear and increasing efficiency and
performance. This collaboration has contributed to the advancement of Mobil 1
motor oils, gear oils and greases found in many GM production vehicles and at
auto parts retailers, mechanic shops and oil change centers across the

“Our deep involvement with Chevrolet, from Corvette production models
available to consumers to the thrilling new Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, provides
a powerful platform to fully demonstrate and prove the protection and
performance benefits of Mobil 1 products,” said David Tsurusaki, strategic
global alliance manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants. “This ongoing
partnership with Corvette Racing allows us to continue testing and developing
lubricant technologies that stand up to some of the most demanding conditions
a vehicle and an engine can experience.”

Based on the production 2015 Corvette Z06, the new C7.R boasts many of the
same cutting-edge racing technologies as its production counterpart, including
Mobil 1 motor oil.

The Corvette Racing and Mobil 1 teams will work throughout the TUDOR United
SportsCar Championship season to customize and improve the lubricant packages
for the No. 3 and No. 4 C7.Rs as they navigate the highly competitive GT Le
Mans class across a variety of tracks and racing conditions.

Last season with Mobil 1, Corvette Racing captured their second consecutive
ALMS GT team championship. The 2012 and 2013 championships build on a long
history of success for Corvette Racing that includes eight consecutive ALMS
GT1 titles from 2001 to 2008 and seven class victories in the 24 Hours of Le
Mans since 2001.

Corvette Racing’s two C7.R entries will take the green flag with the rest of
the field in the upcoming Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen
International. Fans can tune into the race broadcast on FOX Sports 1 on
Sunday, June 29 at 11:00 a.m. ET.
