BBi Autosport’s engine warranty will support all its Performance projects including BBi StreetCup builds, the up to 1,500hp BBi VMax package, and all its Motorsport projects. This will include its class-leading Pikes Peak Hill Climb program which recorded a first-ever for any competitor by finishing on the podium across three classes in one race, a feat accomplished during the 2021 running.
“I’ve raced at Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring, you name it, and nothing compares to the conditions a competitor faces at Pikes Peak,” said Betim Berisha, founder of BBi Autosport. “Our shop has always been known for doing things a little bit differently. So when we wanted to bring our knowledge of racing and winning in the most extreme conditions imaginable to all of our customers, we knew there was only one way to guarantee the performance of our engines – by designing an engine warranty program around the only motor oil we’ve seen win in all the same conditions we have. Warrantying any performance engine is an audacious ideal, but Mobil 1 has been factory fill in more than 1,500,000 Porsche engines over the past 25 years, so we think we’re building around a proven model.”
Founded in 2005, BBi Autosport has fashioned itself a reputation built on a history of delivering championship-caliber performance in unique racing environments such as the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Dating back to its first win in 1934, competitors relying on Mobil™-branded products have won more races up America’s Mountain than any other motor oil brand. Off the race track, no other motor oil brand is trusted to produce more horsepower from the factory.
“Our engineering team continuously approaches every track day as just another day in the lab,” said Jei Gort, global motorsports and sponsorships manager at ExxonMobil. “It's our love of driving that keeps us going, and Betim and his team have that same passion flowing through everything they do. This engine warranty program is something BBi is offering to its customers with the full faith and backing of the same Mobil 1 advanced synthetic motor oil we sell on shelves across the world today. It’s nothing special, beyond the fact that this same Mobil 1 technology is what’s winning Formula One World Championships, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the Chili Bowl. Same goes for Pikes Peak where we’re proud of our heritage dating back to the 1930s when we had to win in the dirt. Now the speeds and horsepower are much more advanced, and so are our Mobil 1 products.”
