Motul To Partner Alex Cascatău and BSRacing Throughout 2020 Season
Motul, one of the biggest names in the oils and lubricants industry, is backing Alex Cascatău this season as he tackles the Supercar Challenge in a Norma M20 FC entered by BSRacing. 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 fights for honours in the competitive CN category. This will ensure maximum engine performance and minimum wear for the Luxembourg-based squad.
The 20th season of the well-known Supercar Challenge is about to kick off at Belgium’s Circuit Zolder on the weekend of 7-9 August and Alex Cascatău is ready to race with a new partner by his side in Motul. The Romanian, who stunned the established teams and drivers during his standout drive in last year’s 24 Hours of Zolder, the blue ribbon event of the Belcar championship, is eager to race alongside team-mate Alain Berg now that the oily business has been taken care of.
Cascatău will contest the entire 2020 season of the Supercar Challenge that will see the Romanian Endurance Series A2 champion race at other top-level venues besides Zolder, namely Assen and Zandvoort in the Netherlands. In all, five rounds are scheduled over a course of less than three months including three visits at Assen, the Dutch home of the MotoGP World Championship, and one at Zandvoort, a track that will feature on the 2021 Formula 1 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.
