Motul increase support of privateer for Sydney Motorsport Park
Supercheap Auto TCR Australia privateer Michael Clemente will feature increased support from lubricants brand Motul for Round 4 at Sydney Motorsport Park.
Prior to his return to the series at Phillip Island, Clemente announced a new partnership with Motul as its official lubricants provider and this association has now grown to the naming rights of the entry this weekend.
Featuring reflective Motul branding on his Honda Civic Type R TCR this weekend as Supercheap Auto TCR Australia competitors prepare for the first night race in the category’s history, Clemente is excited the partnership has expanded.
“Motul has over 150 years of incredible history and huge success in motorsport around the world,” Clemente said.
“It’s incredibly pleasing to see their faith in me and the team after they joined us back in March to step up for this round as naming rights partner.
“We’ve been using Motul as our preferred brand since we joined TCR, and it has proven its ability time and time again.
“Motul has been an active participant in Supercars so to see them investing more in TCR demonstrates the growing popularity of the series and the new demographic of viewers it is reaching.”
Clemente uses a variety of Motul lubricants in his privateer Honda including 300V Competition Oil in its engine, Gear Competition Oil for the transmission, RBF660 Brake Fluid and MoCOOL additive throughout its cooling system.
DBM Oceania Region at Motul’s Dean Rothapfel is pleased to support Michael Clemente Motorsport in Supercheap Auto TCR Australia, adding to its extensive portfolio of categories the brand features in.
“In Australia, Motul have been well known for being the first choice for motorcycle lubricants for many years. Given we also have a wide range of passenger car lubricants, our motorsport involvement lets the consumers know we are also supply lubricants for your family car, 4WD or performance vehicle.
“Rather than just supplying the lubricants, we also work with our racing teams on product performance and development.
“We support all levels of motorsport including Supercars, TCR Australia, Aussie Racing Cars and recently one of our vehicles secured a podium at the Bathurst 12 with our Intercontinental GT Challenge team.
“Motul is delighted to be working with Michael Clemente Motorsport in the TCR Australia series and are excited about this weekend’s round at Syndney Motorsport Park”
