Motul Joins SRO America as Associate Lubricant Partner for 2021

11 February 2021 GT America

SRO Motorsports America is excited to welcome back Motul as an Associate Partner for the upcoming race season. Motul previously enjoyed a multi-year sponsorship with Pirelli World Challenge dating back to 2012. After a brief hiatus, Motul has returned to the SRO America paddock to support our diverse sports car racing championships offered in North America. 

Motul boasts a rich sports car racing history. The French company was first with the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 1950s and has grown to become a world-class organization specializing in the formulation, production and distribution of high-tech engine lubricants for two- and four-wheel machines. 

They enter into a new partnership with SRO America that has seen the series expand into four distinct championships since its Pirelli World Challenge days. Race weekends are headlined by the Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS series featuring today’s top GT3 cars and stars. In addition, events include Pirelli GT4 America, TC America powered by Skip Barber, and GT America powered by AWS. 

“Motul USA is happy to partner again with the expanding SRO America series,” said Celso Pierre, General Manager Motul USA. “We rely on the racing community to continue to test and develop our products and this will allow us to be in the paddock, collecting data and offering support.” 

Motul was the first lubricant manufacturer to pioneer the formulation of a 100% synthetic lubricant for automotive engines in the 1970s and is recognized as a leader in the field today. It has been an official supplier to numerous racing teams and manufacturers, contributing to further technological development in motorsports.

“We’re thrilled to welcome back our friends at Motul,” said Greg Gill, president and CEO of SRO Motorsports America. “Motul’s rich racing heritage and market-leading products are a great fit for our teams looking for the best performance in sports car racing today.”

The 2021 season kicks off at Sonoma Raceway on March 5th featuring nearly 100 cars on the grid throughout SRO America’s championships. The series will visit the top circuits in North America including Circuit of the Americas (April 30th-May 2nd), Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (May 21-23), VIRginia International Raceway (June 11th-13th), Road America (August 27th-29th), Watkins Glen International (September 17th-19th), and Indianapolis Motor Speedway (October 1th-17th). Plus, GT America will make a guest appearance at the IndyCar Music City Grand Prix in Nashville on August 6th-8th.
