Cementing the two brands’ complementary DNA, the companies have announced an exciting new partnership which sees Motul become the official lubricant partner to Caterham, a perfect fit in terms of heritage, technology and motorsport pedigree.
“We’re delighted to have this opportunity to partner with Caterham,” commented Mercia Jansen, Motul Area Manager for Southern and Eastern Africa. “With the exciting Caterham Seven being available to South African motorsport enthusiasts, they can now enjoy super performance in every area of their driving experience”.
Throughout the years, Motul has gained extensive experience as an official supplier to many global racing series such as 24 Hours of Le Mans, FIA World Endurance Championship, MotoGP, and now Caterham’s full motorsport offering.
From first fill to first thrill
Motul will provide a range of premium fluids to Caterham for first fills and service fills, including 8100 Eco-nergy 5W-30 to meet the latest road emissions standards.
In addition, Motul will also supply its Sport 5W-50 - engineered for high-performance road, track and motorsport applications. Motul’s flagship competition products, the 300V range, are also ideally suited to high-performance scenarios.
To complete the range; Motul’s Gear Competition, Gear 300 LS 75W-90 Transmission, and differential oils will be used in all Caterham Sevens. Maintenance fluids such as coolant and RBF 600 Brake Fluid are also available within the partnership. All Motul’s products have successfully proven their reliability, performance and quality engineering.
A unique place in British motorsport history
With over 60 years of engineering prowess, Caterham now offers 11 variations of the ‘Seven’ model including its dedicated motorsport products, which are sold in 19 countries worldwide – including South Africa. Designed with all driver experience levels in mind, the Caterham Seven’s versatility and long-standing history has led to it becoming one of the most iconic cars sold in Britain and makes its motorsport series the largest and most successful single-make championship in Europe.
Celebrating the start of the new partnership in style, earlier this year Caterham played host to Motul and over 130 race drivers at the home of British Formula One, Silverstone National.
Graham Macdonald, CEO of Caterham Group, commented: “It was fantastic to welcome Motul to the opening round of Caterham’s Motorsport Championship and we look forward to working collaboratively to further enhance the Seven’s performance through its extensive range of high-performance lubricants.”
