WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Earth Technologies (OTCQB: GETG) is pleased to announce that their American Le Mans Series sponsored team, Green Earth Team Gunnar (GETG), placed 1st this past weekend as well as the weekend before at the LMP Challenge at Road America and at Lime Rock, winning 3 out of the last 4 races. Including a victory at Long Beach earlier in the season, Gunnar Jeannette and Elton Julian were LMP Challenge winners for the fourth time for Green Earth Team Gunnar with their ORECA FLM09, taking the pole position twice this season. Jeannette posted the fastest lap of the race, still racing on the same G-OIL® motor oil that was in the car when the team took delivery of it in the winter.
GETG is one of the cornerstones of the American Le Mans Series green movement. The car uses biodegradable oil called G-Oil, the world's first and only bio-based and ultimate biodegradable motor oil approved by the American Petroleum Institute. Additionally, Gunnar Jeannette has become a popular icon of the Green Dream Team, promoting sustainable practices as he brings the team in the lead for the championship heading into Atlanta.
"We are up to 83.5 hours on the engine at the completion of this race and G-OIL has brought us to a first place finish for four races," Jeanette said. "I've been speaking in different cities as part of the ALMS Green Dream Team and the fans are really receptive to G-OIL and our message. We look forward to Atlanta and another consecutive win."
And now other AMLS teams are adopting G-OIL for their motor oil of choice ... including Genoa Racing who finished third last weekend. In addition to Green Earth Team Gunnar, Innersports and Mathieson Motor Sports have asked for the bio-based oil.
"We are successfully demonstrating the performance of our G-OIL under the toughest driving conditions, supporting our message that if G-OIL can perform in these engines, then it will definitely perform in yours," said Jeffrey Loch, Founder & Chief Marketing Officer of Green Earth Technologies. "It's been a pleasure to watch the G-OIL car race to the finish in first place for the fourth time and a terrific compliment to see other teams successfully embracing our oil.
Green Earth Team Gunnar is now tied for the championship heading into the last and final race next month in Atlanta ... Road Atlanta's Petit Le Mans.
