A multi-year contract between the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, the FIA World Endurance Championship and renowned international lubricant company Motul has recently been signed, extending the relationship between Le Mans, international endurance racing at the highest level and one of the industry’s most trusted names.
The renewed partnership sees Motul continue in its role as official lubricant to the WEC which includes as its final round the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans, to which event Motul is also official lubricant partner.
Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest: "Loyalty, continuity and modernity: these are some key points on the roadmap that, with Motul as partner, we have been jointly using for some years now, and that the Automobile Club de l’Ouest has great pleasure in continuing via this new contract between our two organisations. Our flagship events will benefit from Motul's experience and professionalism. Partnerships which are as valued as they are long-lasting are essential at a time when the automotive world is experiencing such a revolution."
Gérard Neveu, Le Mans Endurance Management CEO (FIA WEC and ELMS): « Motul has been a valued and faithful partner to the WEC and has contributed greatly to the championship. It is not only a technical partner of proven excellence and reputation, offering competitors the consistency and performance they seek in order to win world-class races, but also a key player in our paddocks in many other ways. We are delighted that the continuation of this partnership will allow us to move forward together.”
Thierry Quilan, President of the Management Board, Motul: “It goes without saying that we are delighted to renew our partnership with the ACO and the WEC, strengthening the bond we formed three years ago. Like Motul, the ACO has been at the forefront of automotive development and technology for a very long time, but we continually look to the future. We share many common values with the ACO and, more recently with the WEC, as competition is in our blood and indeed in our DNA.”
