The lubrication product company is consolidating its involvement in the sector by contributing all of its know-how and playing an active part in the training of students at the Monlau School. This alliance reinforces both companies’ commitment to the world of competition as a basis for the training and education of future mechanics and engineers.
The prestigious teaching centre dedicated to the training of motorsport mechanics and engineers will now be called Monlau Motul Technical School
Motul, a company specialising in the creation of lubrication products for automotive sector and industry, has signed a collaboration agreement with Monlau, an internationally renowned school specialising in competition training, to promote automotive training for young people. The collaboration offers an ideal opportunity to provide support from the grassroots to the top-level competition. Moreover, the partnership of the two companies strengthens their commitment to both training and competition, enabling them to share and draw upon the knowledge gained through their extensive experience.
Under this agreement, the lubricant manufacturer will not only contribute to the students’ training with a view to promoting talent, but also help the competition teams by supplying them with material. The collaboration also includes a scholarship programme designed to incentivise the creation of jobs for young people and promote talent in the field of motorsport. As a result of the agreement, the study centre will now be called the Monlau Motul Technical School.
Motul has competition in its DNA, as demonstrated by the 300-plus victories that gave their name to 300V, one of the company’s most renowned lubricants (and the product that has, nowadays, made the company an international benchmark in the world of motorsport). The passion and emotion of racing circuits offers a testing ground that enables the company to meet even the most demanding of requirements. In this respect, Monlau Motorsport will help Motul to develop and improve its products by acting as the “Motul Laboratory”, putting all of the company’s lubrication products to the test.
Monlau is the example of the training of mechanics and engineers in the area of competition. As such, Motul is the ideal partner for Monlau, as they share values such as the passion for competition and the commitment to training.
According to Sandra Iniesta, Marketing Director at Motul Ibérica: “At Motul we are very excited about joining forces with a school of the calibre of Monlau, which will allow us to work more closely with young talents. We both agree that excellence is achieved by working from the ground up, which is the reason why we want to increase our commitment to training in order to help the engineers and mechanics of the future to reach their maximum potential in the world of competition. Additionally, this collaboration will give Motul the opportunity to develop and improve our range of products both on and off the circuit”.
As Jaime Serrano, Managing Director at Monlau Motul Technical School says: “Motul is the ideal partner for us, as we share values such as a passion for competition and a commitment to training. We are privileged to announce this new alliance, which will enable us to continue to support the competition mechanics, engineers and drivers of the future as they strive to achieve excellence. Motul is a company with a tremendous amount of prestige within the sector, and their extensive motorsport experience and history will undoubtedly offer us new opportunities to continue developing our 360° method, which combines theoretical and practical classes in our facilities at the centre with hands-on practice at the circuit”.
