Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford keeps making new friends south of the United States border. Case in point?

Today Roshfrans, a company with a huge motorsports presence in Mexico announced it would become the official lubricant of the Champ Car World Series, the series' first official series sponsor from Mexican.

In signing a multi-year agreement to become the Official Lubricant of Champ Car, Roshfrans' synthetic oils will run in each of the Ford-Cosworth XFE engines powering the series racers and the company will also provide the balance of its complete line of lubricating products for use on all parts of the 750 horsepower turbocharged power mills.

Roshfrans has been providing automotive lubricants to its home country of Mexico - and around the world - since 1955. The company has backed Michel Jourdain Jr., Mario Dominguez and Ryan Hunter-Reay in the Chakmp Car World Series, along with a team in Formula Renault.

The Copa Roshfrans series runs exclusively with Ford Mustangs and is very popular in Mexico. The Copa Roshfrans ran as a support event to the Champ Car World Series during the Tecate/Telmex Monterrey Grand Prix in May of this year.

"As a Mexican company, we are very confident in the new Champ Car administration and are eager to participate in the growth of such an outstanding racing series," declared Sergio Platonoff, Roshfrans commercial director.

"The diversity of Champ Car competition demands the finest quality products and we believe this competition will further enhance Roshfrans' reputation as being among the best," he said.

Dominguez noted his pleasure about the announcement of this affiliation: "The fact that Roshfrans is becoming our official lubricant says a lot about support to the Champ Car World Series. This will be very, very beneficial to both parties and is a great opportunity for both."

In addition to supplying lubricants to the Champ Car racing machines, Roshfrans will also provide cooling and transmission fluids, as well as all types of greases and attitudes for the Champ Car Simple Green Safety Trucks and the specially prepared cars of the Champ Car Fast Lap pace car program.
