THE smell of burnt rubber filled the air as the second season of the Toyota Vios Cup successfully flagged off at the Clark International Speedway (CIS) a fortnight ago, with a record number of 42 race cars fighting for a spot at the podium.
Organized by the country’s most dominant car manufacturer, Toyota Motors Philippines (TMP), the Vios Cup gained more popularity since its maiden season last year. “The turnout was spectacular and the race was very exciting. It is nice to see the grid has grown in numbers, and more celebrities are racing this year,” said TMP president Michinobu Sugata. “Toyota is also very happy with the support of its major sponsors such as Motul, Toyota’s global partner in motorsports,” Sugata added.
One of the world’s leading motorsport lubricant specialists, Motul has a long-standing and extremely successful technical relationship with Toyota and its motorsport and performance arm, Toyota Racing Development (TRD).
With more than 50 years of development and racing experience, Motul’s oil and lubricants have been tested in actual conditions and have been proven to provide ultra low-friction, incredibly smooth and almost no noticeable drop in revolutions per minute when shifting and instantaneous engine revs with noticeable gains in horsepower. Its high performance anti-wear additive increases engine life duration and decreases wear by reducing engine internal frictions resulting in smooth and light acceleration. Motul guarantees total protection for the engine with its line of fully synthetic motor oils, the H-TEC 100 and 300V.
