This May the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in the Eifel region of Germany will once again echo to the sight and sounds of the Subaru WRX STI, and Motul will be with the STI (Subaru Tecnica International) team for every kilometer. 2017 is a milestone year for STI as it will be its 10th consecutive participation in the Nürburgring 24 Hours (May 25-28), and the team already has four class wins to its name, most recently in 2015/16.
STI will enter the SP3T class with a new lightweight car for 2017, fitted with a paddle shift gear system, and benefiting from Motul’s products, including 300V engine oil and specialist brake fluids. The same winning driver line up from 2016 has been retained, Hideki Yamauchi, Tim Schrick, Marcel Lasse and Carlo Van Dam, and the car was shaken down ready for the season at Fuji Speedway on 7 March.
The partnership with STI strengthens a collaboration with Subaru Europe which began in 2011. The technical experts from Motul and Subaru together developed a co-branded oil (5W30 available in 1L & 5L) to offer optimum performance and reliability to Subaru drivers.
