Mike Conway Partners With Petrol - Web Exclusive

Aug 3, 2009

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. USA, July 24, 2009 — Driver Mike Conway has joined the ranks of IndyCar’s Ryan Briscoe, Indy Lights racer Pippa Mann, American Le Mans driver Chapman Ducote, and Grand-Am Series veteran Max Angelelli as professional drivers now wearing Petrol Eyewear. He currently wears the Petrol Carburetor, a sport-styled Grilamid® frame featuring Petrol’s polarized RepeliumTM lens.

“The frame is comfortable, and the lens quality is outstanding,” remarked Conway. “The toric lens shape provides a great fit and a great look.”

One of the most promising young drivers in IndyCar, Conway began racing in his native England at age 8 and honed his skills in European formula cars. Racing in the GP2 Series in 2008, he notched an impressive win at the famed streets of Monaco. He also served as a Honda F1 test driver from 2007-2008. Conway won the British Formula 3 Championship and the Macau Grand Prix in 2006, and was recognized twice by the British Racing Drivers' Club for his achievements in Formula 3 in 2005. Now in his rookie season in American open-wheel racing, Conway has notched two top 10 finishes thus far and will be in contention at every remaining race in the 2009 campaign.

Now available at and select retail locations, the Petrol Eyewear driving sunglass line includes a variety of high-performance Grilamid/plastic frames along with metal, acetate and ultra-light titanium models. Most styles feature the company’s signature Repelium™ lens—a multi-layer polycarbonate with an ultra-slick surface that resists scratches, smudges, oils, water, fogging and fingerprints. An anti-reflective coating on the inside surface eliminates eye straininducing “bounce-back” glare, while Petrol light filtering technology provides 100% protection from harmful UV rays and damaging, high-intensity visible light. Optically correct and distortion-free, Petrol Repelium lenses are individually cast and vacuum-coated in France and Italy. Petrol driving sunglasses range in price from $120-180 USD and carry a one-year warranty.
