A test with great results

LIQUI MOLY supported All German Motorsports at the Baja 1000

November 2011 – Though only a test run, it was quite successful. The All German Motorsports' new Jimco X6 SCORE trophy truck finished the legendary Baja 1000 twelfth in the Trophy Truck category and twentieth overall. This high performance engine was lubricated with oils from the German motor oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY.

The AGM Jimco X6 SCORE trophy truck is a brand new development, standing out because of its lightweight construction. For their first test run under competition conditions, the team chose nothing smaller than the Baja 1000. Being a huge challenge by itself, lots of rain in the days before the race made the difficult track even worse.

The new truck, weighing some hundreds of pounds less than those of the competitors, was faster as long as the road conditions were bearable. But when the track became really grueling, the team lost time. The reason was easy to diagnose: the suspension was still too soft. Nonetheless, 12th place was a result everybody was satisfied with. Especially when one considers that the team didn't go to the limit. “We did maybe 70 percent of what seemed possible”, said driver Armin Schwarz. “But we just didn’t want to take any risks. 900 miles of tests under competition conditions are too important and good to have.”

LIQUI MOLY was pleased to see that their lubricants did a great job in the AGM Jimco X6 SCORE trophy truck. “The Baja 1000 surely is one of the toughest tests for our products”, said Peter Baumann, head of marketing at LIQUI MOLY. “We look forward to also providing the All German Motorsports team with lubricants made in Germany in 2012.”
