TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., November 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In the overplanned, overprogrammed races of everyday life, cars are often thought of as machines used for commuting – the thing that gets us from one place to another. As cars keep nearly a quarter billion Americans on the road, world-leading synthetic motor oil and iconic motorsport brand Mobil 1™ and automotive lifestyle brand Hagerty™ are committed to cultivating and celebrating a more meaningful car culture—the sheer joy of driving brings and builds a community of driving enthusiasts. To further that purpose, the two brands today formalized their alliance in a multi-year collaboration to serve riders everywhere.

“Hagerty aims to save driving and car culture. Mobil 1 is on a mission to spread the love of driving,” he said Scott Howard, Director, Finished Lubricants for North America at ExxonMobil. “Whether it’s modern European racing cars, classic American designs, the Rocket League’s virtual Octane car, or innovative creations like the Hoonipigasus, we’ve seen that the sheer driving pleasure, not necessarily what you drive, is what brings enthusiasts together and builds communities. Together, Mobil 1 and Hagerty will better serve, grow and inspire drivers everywhere.”

Together, Mobil 1 and Hagerty have nearly 90 years of experience protecting automobiles, developing innovative technologies, building industry relationships and building communities of passionate drivers around the world. Together, both brands will be able to better serve their customers by taking automotive culture to new heights – on and off the road – with a focus on compelling content, community cultivation and purposeful vehicle care.

“We started out as an insurance company to protect the vehicles we all love,” he said Larry Webster, Senior Vice President of Media and Editorial, Hagerty. “But we have evolved into an automotive lifestyle brand because the passion of driving enthusiasts is so much bigger than the car itself. The builders, the stories, the assemblies and – yes – the cars, that’s why more than 750,000 drivers are part of Hagerty’s Driver’s Club. Empowering people who love cars of all kinds is what motivates Mobil 1 and Hagerty to work together to support driver communities.”
