PORTER, Texas – Premium synthetic lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple joined forces with Subaru Rally Team USA in a multi-year agreement on Wednesday.

The team, managed by Subaru technical partner Vermont SportsCar, will begin to utilize Royal Purple products in each of its factory Rally and Rallycross teams.

Subaru Rally Team USA has won the Rally America National Championship seven of the last eight years with drivers Travis Pastrana and David Higgins, and now also fields a two-car effort in the burgeoning Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship with drivers Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen.

“We are excited to begin working with Royal Purple,” said Lance Smith, owner and president of Vermont SportsCar. “A technical partnership with a brand like Royal Purple, who has a deep understanding of the demands of motorsports, is a positive move for our team and we all look forward to the performance gains they will give us across all our racing efforts.”

Royal Purple produces a wide range of high performance racing lubricants and has a strong heritage within motorsports. Vermont SportsCar will immediately begin testing and working with the full spectrum of Royal Purple products at both their in-house engine dyno as well as in the Rally America and Red Bull Global Rallycross competition series.

“We are looking forward to our partnership with the Subaru Rally Team USA, and welcome the opportunity to demonstrate our product’s ability to outperform in their rally cars across two strong racing series in 2014,” said Bryan Yourdon, Royal Purple’s president.
