Commercial rights holders of the MotoGP™ World Championship, Dorna Sports S.L., and French lubricant manufacturer Motul are pleased to announce a significant new partnership agreement which includes MotoGP™ title sponsorship, licensing, as well as cross-platform involvement in the World Superbike and the Junior World Championships.
The 2015 season sees Motul as title sponsor for the Assen, Motegi and Valencia races; from 2016 the Argentinian round will be added to make it four, in a particularly long-term deal. Next season will prove significant for another reason as well, as Motul will take over as the Series sponsor for the World Superbike Championship.
Its involvement in the series will see track-side advertising at every one of its MotoGP™ and SBK races, thereby strengthening its customer reach. And, if proof is needed of just how far Motul is delving into the world of motorcycle racing, it will also provide technical support to the Asia Talent Team in the Moto3™ Junior World Championship.
