Fill unprivileged teenagers with wonder on the road of Dakar Thanks to Motul Corazón Foundation
In collaboration with the A.S.O. teams of DAKAR 2018 where MOTUL is Major Partner, Motul Corazón Foundation will be alongside with three specific actions to fill unprivileged teenagers with wonder.
Le Havre – November 23
The adventure began in Le Havre on November 23 just before the official boarding of the « caravan of the Dakar » (more than 600 vehicles).
Twelve students from the Écoles de Production, supported by Motul Corazón Foundation discovered Dakar’s back stage. They first met with Xavier Gavory, Head of Competitors' department for an explanation of the rules at Dakar, then they met with the pilot Romain Leloup to introduce the epic program of the « Original by Motul » category and they finally met with Stéphane Mabirre, Louviers Garage Manager where the vehicles are prepared.
ECOLES DE PRODUCTION
The Ecoles de Production is an association whose vocation is to help young people learn a profession in different fields and particularly in mechanics. Through Motul Corazón’s contribution they are able to :
- Equip a technical platform with the necessary equipment to ensure the maintenance of motor vehicles on which students can "life size" learn their trade, accompanied by a professional.
- Provide the school with a quality material identical to that found in professional circles so that students, upon leaving school, are qualified to be directly operational in the professional world.
