International lubricant specialist, Motul, is making a return to the high-octane, high- action arena of American Supercross, specifically the Monster Energy Supercross and AMA/FIM world championship which begins its 2012 season in Anaheim, California this Saturday, January 7th.
Successfully involved in all categories of motorsport around the world – more than 50 titles were clinched in 2011 using the company’s extensive and motorsport-specific range of products – Motul will be technically supporting the recently founded, but high-profile, L&Mc Racing team in their quest for Championship success.
The Honda-powered L&Mc Racing team’s 2012 season is widely anticipated, bringing together the leadership skills of one of the most successful Team Managers in the sport, Larry Brooks, and the racing talent, in-depth technological knowledge and star-power of the legendary “King of Supercross”, Jeremy McGrath. Both of which have contracted Andrew Short to race in the premier class for 2012.
Supporting L&Mc in both the 17-round Supercross (SX) and 12-round Motocross Series (MX), Motul is proud to return to one of the most prestigious competitive disciplines within the power sport scene for the first time since 2009.
Dave Wolman, President of Motul USA and head of the Center of Excellence Power sports for the Motul Group says of the new association: "I am very excited about the opportunity for Motul to join forces with three of the most dynamic and respected off-road professionals in the industry today! Each member brings a level of experience and know-how to the team that can only be described as "outstanding". As a past race team mechanic, and proclaimed ‘gearhead’ myself, I can't wait for the start of the season to provide whatever technical assistance we can and watch the team, and our products, battle for the two championships!"
