Motul renews with ACO, WEC and Le Mans

Engine lubricant company Motul has signed a multi-year renewal with the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) for the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

The renewal sees Motul continue in its role as Official Lubricant to the WEC which includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where Motul is Official Lubricant Partner.

Thierry Quilan, president of the Motul management board, said: “Like Motul, the ACO has been at the forefront of automotive development and technology for a very long time, but we continually look to the future.  We share many common values with the ACO and, more recently with the WEC, as competition is in our blood and indeed in our DNA.”

The renewal extends the partnership between the three organisations formed three years ago.
