Driven Racing Oil Debuts Expanded GP-1 Line

Driven GP-1 Conventional oils are formulated with premium Pennsylvania Grade base oil which features a high-pressure viscosity coefficient and superior lubrication properties.

Driven Racing Oil, an industry-leading manufacturer of performance oils and lubricants, has expanded upon its popular GP-1 Conventional Oil line with four additional products including SAE 40, SAE 50, 20W50 break-in oil and a 85W-140 gear oil. These unique oils offer protection and performance for a wide variety of vehicles ranging from classics and antiques to powerful race motors and supercharged engines. 

Driven GP-1 Conventional oils are formulated with premium Pennsylvania Grade base oil which features a high-pressure viscosity coefficient and superior lubrication properties. GP-1 Conventional oils’ high zinc (ZDDP) content works in synergy with the Pennsylvania Grade base oil for optimum anti-wear performance. The unique formulation is engineered to prevent leaks and assist with ring seal and features high film strength for anti-scuff protection.

The new Break-In 20W50 oil is optimized for flat tappet cam and lifter break-in and features a high zinc content of 1,800 parts per million. The break-in formulation chemically assists ring seal following engine assembly and does not include molybdenum, promoting proper ring seating.

Driven designed its GP-1 Conventional SAE 40 for antique engines that call for a 40-grade oil, including heavy-duty antique military engine applications while its GP-1 Conventional SAE 50 is optimized for vintage racing applications, including methanol-fueled and supercharged engines. The high zinc and molybdenum (Moly) content of GP-1 SAE 40 and SAE 50 reduces friction and provides extreme pressure protection, leading to decreased engine wear and improved efficiency. This vintage formulation benefits from Driven’s modern additive technology and the Pennsylvania Grade base oil help to prevent leaks, separate water contamination, and better lubricate the engine.

The new 85W140 GP-1 Conventional Gear Oil is formulated from premium Pennsylvania base oils that provide natural film strength, tack, and cling without relying on polymers that eventually shear and cause viscosity loss. This shear-resistant formulation protects high offset ring and pinion gears from shock loading during motorsports racing while also providing protection for slower speed, high torque off-road differentials.
