Royal Purple Partners with Red Bull GRC Driver Sarah Burgess

Premium synthetic lubricant manufacturer, Royal Purple®, today announced that it will sponsor Red Bull Global Rallycross (GRC) driver Sarah Burgess in her inaugural foray into the rally car series for the 2014 season. Burgess will enter her first Red Bull GRC race at the X Games in Austin, June 7, at the Circuit of the Americas.

A native of Australia, Burgess has been drift racing for the past three years in the United States, most recently in the Xtreme Drift Circuit at the wheel of a 2013 Ford Mustang. The excitement of checkered flag racing is just one of the reasons Burgess made the transition to the Red Bull GRC series. Burgess is one of two female drivers competing in Red Bull GRC this season, and she welcomes the opportunity to be a role model for other women while competing in her 2.0L Ecotec-powered Chevrolet Sonic.

“It’s not to say ‘you too can be a professional race car driver’, it’s to show women of all ages that there are no excuses to step outside of your circle of comfort and try something different,” said Burgess. “I’ve been watching the Global Rallycross series grow for the last few years and really make a name for itself. To have companies like Red Bull get involved and maintain relationships with Royal Purple and Sylvania says something about the stability of the series, and that’s what I want to see as a driver and team owner.”

Burgess has been spending numerous hours in the shop working on her Sonic, managing the electrical system in the car and also helping with the metal work, cutting and shaping the Lexan windows and fitting body work. She has used a variety of Royal Purple products while preparing her car for the Reed Bull GRC action, and will continue utilizing the high performance products throughout the season. Royal Purple’s engine oil provides extra insurance for a high-performing and reliable engine. Purple Ice coolant additive keeps the cooling system at an optimal temperature during the fast paced racing, and Royal Purple’s multi-purpose lubricant, Max-Film, is a go-to in Burgess’ machine shop.

Royal Purple first partnered with Burgess during her 2013 drifting season. She was thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Royal Purple for her run in the Red Bull GRC, noting that in her experience as a driver and fabricator, its high performance synthetic products are second to none.

“We’re excited to be a part of Sarah’s first year as a driver in the Red Bull Global Rallycross,” said Randy Fisher, Royal Purple Marketing Director. “Her hands on involvement in her race car, tenacity in her work ethic and support of Royal Purple products make her an Outperformer in our eyes.”

Red Bull Global Rallycross at the X Games in Austin will be broadcast live on ABC, June 7, at 3 p.m. ET.
