Through its partnership with the Red-Lined Motoring Adventure Team, Motul is a proud contributor to the success of the South African Cross Country Series – one of Africa’s most demanding motorsports championships.
Red-Lined Motoring Adventure exclusively uses Motul’s high-tech oils and lubricants to ensure that their customised V8 Nissan Navara cars can deliver exceptional performances in challenging driving conditions from the mielie fields of Bronkhorstspruit to the deserts of Botswana.
With a proud history of innovation and pushing boundaries, Motul was the natural choice of oil and lubricant partner for Red-Lined Motoring Adventure. For the next event, the Atlas Copco 400 race on August 3rd and 4th (the fourth in this year’s series of six SACCS events), Red-Lined Motoring Adventure will also be partnering with Joey Evans. Evans will take on the role of celebrity navigator and will be reading the notes for Terence Marsh, CEO of Red-Lined Motoring Adventure.
Motul is honoured to have Joey join the Red-Lined Motoring Adventure team. As a paralysis survivor, Dakar 2017 finisher and inspirational speaker, he needs no introduction. Joey’s incredible story of recovery from an accident that threatened to stop him ever walking again is a testament to his strength of character and determination to always go that little bit further.
It’s a spirit that everyone at Motul can identify with, and an attitude that will stand Joey in good stead as he attempts to become a winner on four wheels as well as on two.
“Motul is extremely proud to have Joey Evans join the Red-Lined Motoring Adventure team for the Atlas Copco 400,” commented Mercia Jansen, Motul Area Manager for Southern and Eastern Africa. “He embodies the strong spirit and fearlessness of Red-Lined Motoring Adventure, and his determination to succeed against seemingly overwhelming odds is both humbling and uplifting”.
Following a successful training session on July 23rd, Red-Lined Motoring Adventure’s Terence Marsh was impressed by Joey Evan’s tenacity and determination to succeed. “Joey showed all the qualities he’s known for,” said Marsh after their first drive together “but the one that struck me the most was his passion.”
With Red-Lined Motoring Adventure’s high-performance vehicles running on high-performance Motul oils and lubricants, and Joey Evans in the hot seat, South African Cross Country Series fans can expect another exhilarating performance from a team and a celebrity navigator that never quits.
