Podium Finish Keeps Lucas Oil in Gear

Date: Thursday 09 July 2020

Series rookie Dan Tickum secured third place, ten points and a podium position in the Sprint Race, when the suspended 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship finally opened at the Red Bull Ring in Austria last weekend.

His 5th place in the opening 40-lap Feature Race had already earned ten points, so it was a great weekend for the British driver in his first season with the Lucas Oil-sponsored Driot Associés Motor Sport (DAMS) team. Engine trouble ruined Indonesian teammate Sean Galeal’s involvement and limited the team’s total points haul to 20.

Lucas Oil Synthetic Racing Gear Oil and Lucas Oil Brake Cleaner are among a range of products that helped the two DAMS cars to secure the F2 Team Championship last season. The DAMS partnership with one of the world’s leading oils, lubes and additive manufacturers looks set to keep the team in contention throughout 2020. Meanwhile, on the starting grid, car care products from the Lucas Oil Slick Mist range help both cars to catch the eye.

Round 2 is at the same venue from 10-12 July.
