Motul, one of the biggest names in the oils and lubricants industry, is backing Alex Cascatău once again in 2021 as he aims to step up the racing ladder after championship winning success in 2020. The Romanian will continue to compete for BS Racing by Baticonsult and is currently in the process finalising plans for the season, together with the team.
The French company, partner to many of the world’s top factory racing teams, will provide BSRacing with Motul 300V Competition synthetic racing oil as the team looks to further impress on the international racing stage. This will ensure maximum engine performance and minimum wear for the Luxembourg-based squad.
I am very proud to continue my partnership with Motul and want to thank them for their trust and support. After we managed to win the GT & Prototype Challenge championship together last year, we are motivated to continue the recent run of success and build on the momentum. I can't wait to tell you what the plans for 2021 are, once we move close to finalising the racing calendar!
With over 150 years of experience in the manufacture of lubricants, Motul is one of the industry’s leading innovators as it strives to provide the best products for everything including cars, motorcycles and many more in between. Coming from France, the country where the 24 Hours of Le Mans was born and has been hosted yearly since 1923, Motul understands the importance of motor racing in the development of new and better products for its customers.
Motul’s long line of industry firsts, such as the first semi-synthetic car lubricant in 1966 or the the first 100% synthetic car oil five years later, proves the company is eager to always move the goalposts further and further and that’s also why it prides itself with a very varied involvement in racing. Motul is a technical partner of MotoGP as well as being present in the WRC, the Dakar Rally, and many other world-renown competitions that push both mand and machine to their upper limit.
Motul is present in more than 80 countries including Romania where it has established itself as a market leader in the premium sector. After supporting the emerging Racing League Romania, the biggest and most prominent sim racing league in the country, Motul steps back into the real world to back Alex Cascatău, a former RLR champion who’s the only Romanian simracer to also compete at an international level in actual racing.
