Motul continues to be the official lubricant supplier to the 24H Motos, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship, extending the ongoing partnership between the ACO and the France-based international company.
A week after the announcement of the list of 60 entrants to the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest and Motul are delighted to announce the renewal of their multi year agreement with the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans and 24H Motos. The ACO’s benchmark endurance races, on two and four wheels, are an ideal testing ground for the research team at Motul, the hi-tech engine lube specialist.
Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest : Loyalty, continuity and ingenuity are key features of the roadmap that we have been following for several years with our partner Motul and we are thrilled to pursue the relationship between our two organisations. Our flagship races the 24H Motos and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the FIA World Endurance Championship, our karting circuit and racing driver schools all benefit from Motul’s experience and professionalism. At a time of fundamental change for the automotive world, such valuable, solid ties are vital.
Thierry Quilan, Chairman of the Board, Motul : Obviously, we are delighted to renew our partnership with the Automobile Club de l’Ouest and the FIA World Endurance Championship and strengthen the bond that we forged three years ago. Like Motul, the ACO has long been a trailblazer in automotive development and new technologies, and the ACO and Motul will continue to drive research for the future. We share many values with the ACO and the WEC. Racing is our inspiration.
