That's the oil used for today's IndyCar engines. I believe they have to use an "off the shelf" oil. Good luck finding it though.

Wonder how this is different from any other GF-5 0W-20. It looks super ordinary on paper. Flash point is nothing special. MSDS indicates 75% - 90% Group III. VI is very high, but that's hard to interpret without an HTHS viscosity listed.

I'd be really interested to know what makes this oil tick. Also curious to know why it doesn't carry actual SN/GF-5 licenses.

Looks pretty TGMO-ish doesn't it ?

Would have loved to see the UOA if he used his recommendations at the track...just saying.

Another oil for very high performance applications, with flash point and volatility numbers that are nothing special...

I feel like everything I know about oil is wrong. :-P

Wasn't it a central part of his rationale that he never really got those cars up to temp?

Now I wonder if that's the anticipated usage for which this Castrol 0W-20 is approved for the DB11...
