Liqui-Moly has had a long standing association with John Bowe, one of Australia’s most successful motor racing personalities. Affectionately known as JB, he’s been inducted into the V8 Supercar Hall of Fame and is universally considered to be the driver’s driver. Fitting praise for the only Australian racer to have won six national championships across four different categories – a feat, which many feel will never be equalled.
Those championships include; Australian Drivers’ Championship (1984 & 1985), Australian Sports Car Championship (1986), Australian Touring Car Championship (1995) and Touring Cars Masters Championship (2011, 2012 & 2014).
Other outstanding motorsport achievements include two Bathurst 1000 wins (1989 & 1994) and three Bathurst 12-Hour victories (1995, 2010 & 2014). On the Driver Database (www.driverdb.com/countries/australia/) JB tops the Australian lists for; Race Wins, Pole Positions and Fastest Laps, as well as second on the Total Number of Races.
The endearing attributes that have made JB much more than just a driver are his personality, genuineness and credibility – all qualities that reflect those of Liqui-Moly. This authenticity extends to JB’s resolute belief in only promoting products he uses and trusts.
In his latest role as team owner and financier (Mustang Sally is the first race car JB has owned in his last 30-plus years of competition), it’s imperative to quickly determine what works and what doesn’t. This onus has only made JB even more vocal on the outstanding merits of Liqui-Moly lubricants and additives – both proving to be integral elements in JB’s winning formula.
