The ultimate prize is a money-can't-buy opportunity to spend the day up close and personal with the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team, at the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin. As a special guest of the team, you'll get to spend the day trackside, right at the heart of the action.

And if you're not lucky enough to win the top prize, don't worry. You can still get close to motorsports by winning a selection of merchandise that you'd never normally get your hands on - from gear cogs off the race cars themselves through to replica helmets and scale models of the cars. Sound too good to miss? Visit for a chance to get in on the action!

Get personal with the engine

Motorsport provides a wide range of demanding conditions that put Mobil 1™ lubricants to the test. Grand Prix racing is the ultimate proving ground for Mobil 1 technology because the lubricant has to work so hard at maximising performance.

Mobil 1 lubricants must withstand engine forces 8,500 times greater than the force of gravity. The engine performs at temperatures higher than 300°C ­ the kind of heat that can melt tin and lead. Despite this, the engine is constantly protected by Mobil 1 lubricants during the 67,000 kilometres covered in the race season.

Trackside partnership.
The relationship between Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team and Mobil 1™ has resulted in an impressive 78 race wins and four championships. Much of this planning and technology happens at the McLaren Technology Centre where our personalised film was shot. Visit their site for more info and to see where Jonathan Neale, the Managing Director, and Sam Michael, the Sporting Director of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team, and stars of our 'Get Personal' film are based.

Part of that success can also be attributed to trackside support. Not only does Mobil 1 provide their high-performance lubricant products and fuel for every race, they also bring the expertise of their engineers.

Race-day oil analysis.
Before and after each track session, an expert embedded in the team takes oil samples which are tested on the spot in the portable Mobil 1 Analytical Centre. The analysis gives detailed information on the health of the engine, monitoring its inner workings.

Winning technology.
Mobil 1 specialists keep their eyes open for microscopic traces of metal and contamination in the oil that can provide early warning of potential issues. The ability to pinpoint the precise source of a potential problem helps improve reliability and keeps the car running at peak performance.
