Autosport International will be celebrating its 30th year in January, and 2020 also marks the 70-year anniversary of Autosport Magazine and F1. To celebrate this, the event will be showcasing some of motor sport’s most revolutionary technologies.
Like Autosport, Motul has a long history in the automotive world having developed the first multigrade engine lubricant in 1953 and in 1971 was the first lubricant manufacturer to pioneer the formulation of a 100% synthetic lubricant for automotive engines based on technology from the aeronautical industry.
As a specialist in synthetic oils, Motul has become the partner of many manufacturers, workshops and sports teams for its technological developments in mechanical sports and car racing globally.
Motul is the lubricant partner to many prestigious events, teams and manufacturers such as Goodwood Revival, Le Mans, Gibson Engines, Radical Sports Cars, Suzuki, Brabus and Caterham to name a few.
This year Motul’s large stand will have the theme of ‘Trusted winners since 1853’ showcasing the success of the brand and product performance over the past 167 years.
On display on Motul’s stand at the show (Hall 3, Stand 3755) will be the exciting Toyota Corolla that competed in the 2019 BTCC championship with driver Tom Ingram. Motul has been in partnership with Tom and his Speedworks team for many years now and have seen their performance in the
BTCC go from strength to strength. Motul are delighted that Tom Ingram will be available on the stand over the weekend for visitors to meet and greet.
Motul also have the mighty Studebaker Silver Hawk classic car on display on their stand. This beast of a car dates back to the 1950’s and hails from Indiana, USA. The car was converted into a race car by former BTCC champion Patrick Watts and competed at the Goodwood Revival in September. Visitors will be able to see just how wonderful this American classic giant is.
