These products have brought the RAVENOL brand to a wide audience across the world, and since 2006 Ravensberger  Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH has been technical partner to Andre Schürle and his Team Germany Racing, who race boats successfully on inland waterways in Europe, Central America and the Far East. In this series, the team was Formula 2 European Champion 2007.

In addition to Team Germany Racing, who are the only professional powerboat racing team in Germany, RAVENOL is involved with more than 20 international teams in the marine Formula 1 World Championship.
