Sports represent challenges, perspiration, hard work, and achievements. They are an ideal that challenges not only athletes, but the daily activities at our company too.
To Petrobras, encouraging sports is driving society and renewing the team spirit among Brazilians.
We have been a part of the history of Brazilian sports ever since 1956, when our logo was showcased in the first Brazilian Thousand Mile auto race. Our presence became more solid as of the 1980's, when we started endorsing the Clube de Regatas do Flamengo, a partnership that lasted 24 years.
As of the 1990's, we began using auto competitions not only to showcase the Petrobras brand, but as a laboratory to develop products such as lubricants and fuels.
We made history in Formula 1, when we used high-tech gasoline our scientists designed to optimize engine performance. Other projects came about, as did many competitions and adventures.
We currently operate in two segments, motor sports and high-performance sports through three programs: the Petrobras Motor Sports Program, the Petrobras High-Performance Sports Program, and the Petrobras Sports & Citizenship Program.
