FOLLOWING a series of successful technical partnerships with Toyota and TRD in New Zealand and Thailand, plus the launch of the exclusive TRD by Motul product range, Motul has once again renewed its association with TRD—one of the leading and most accomplished companies in motor sports.
The official lubricant partnership is based in India, and will see the 160-year-old French lubricant company become involved in the Toyota Etios Motor Racing Trophy.
Managed by Toyota India, and with technical input, guidelines and various racing parts provided by TRD, the one-make championship features 30 race-ready Toyota Etios cars that are prepared by a local performance garage. To complement the technology and adhere to strict TRD technical guidelines, the cars will run on Motul’s race-proven products, including 300V engine oil, RBF 600 brake fluid, Gear 300 gear oil and MoCOOL radiator additive.
On top of providing its expertise and support, Motul will also be present at the various races with a dedicated booth to showcase its wide range of products. In addition, Motul branding will be widely seen throughout the championship, including on the cars, track side and in various digital and print media.
Eight races will be held this year, with the top three drivers getting the opportunity to race in a one-make Toyota Vios Cup organized by TRD in Thailand.
Motul is also the official lubricant partner of the Vios Cup in the Philippines.
