FROM THE RACETRACK TO YOUR GARAGE

MOTUL’S LUBRICANTS ARE HONED IN THE MERCILESS FIRES OF MOTORSPORT.

Torque (Singapore) - - MOTUL SPECIAL -

Do you sing in the shower? The av­er­age per­son’s voice tol­er­ates the oc­ca­sional out-of­tune note fairly well. Now imag­ine hav­ing to sing at the top of your voice all the time, ev­ery time. It won’t be long be­fore your lar­ynx goes the way of Darth Vader’s.

Dur­ing the Motul Driv­ing Ex­pe­ri­ence at the Sepang In­ter­na­tional Cir­cuit, the Re­nault Clio Cup car and For­mula 4 race­car screamed past par­tic­i­pants. In the dis­tance, there were un­end­ing screeches as Toy­ota 86s drift the­atri­cally around a skid­pad, melt­ing their tyres and sub­ject­ing the coupe’s dif­fer­en­tials to mur­der­ous loads.

In Mo­toGP, the mo­tor­cy­cle en­gines usu­ally rev to a dizzy­ing 18,000rpm.

Drift ma­chines, such as the ones in the King of Na­tions World Drift Cham­pi­onship, also sub­ject their dif­fer­en­tials to enor­mous strains. Then there is the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the idea of me­chan­i­cal sur­vival is taken to the harsh­est of ex­tremes.

If you can­not belt out more than a cou­ple of songs be­fore go­ing hoarse, imag­ine the pun­ish­ment a rac­ing car must en­dure to per­form at its very limits for pro­longed pe­ri­ods.

Ev­ery­thing from en­gines to trans­mis­sions to dif­fer­en­tials need the best help they can get to sur­vive re­lent­less metal-on-metal ac­tion.

We some­times forget the cru­cial role a good lu­bri­cant plays in a ma­chine, and just how com­plex a sci­ence its cre­ation is. Sus­tain­ing race per­for­mance re­quires far more than just pour­ing in a vaguely greasy fluid and hop­ing for the best.

Un­der such con­di­tions, a mo­tor oil’s pu­rity is es­sen­tial and its con­sis­tency is cru­cial. Motul’s gen­er­a­tions of ex­pe­ri­ence, gleaned from be­ing em­bed­ded within teams and man­u­fac­tur­ers per­form­ing at the high­est lev­els, al­low their prod­ucts to be honed on the racetrack and per­fected in the lab­o­ra­tory be­fore ar­riv­ing in your garage.

If Motul’s race-bred lubricants can sus­tain that kind of pro­longed pun­ish­ment, your daily com­mute is a cake­walk.

If you have spent any time at all around a rac­ing team, you will re­alise that the fever­ish in­ten­sity of in­no­va­tion and re­lent­less im­prove­ment is sec­ond to none.

Ev­ery­thing is honed to ab­so­lute per­fec­tion and ev­ery mi­cro­scopic gain pos­si­ble is pur­sued tena­ciously. Motul’s en­gi­neers know this, and trans­late this never-end­ing en­deav­our to cre­at­ing prod­ucts that keep en­gines hum­ming healthily and pow­er­fully. The most de­mand­ing race teams such as Team Mu­gen, STI, Nis­san Nismo, and Ital­ian mo­tor­cy­cle man­u­fac­turer MV Agusta have all cho­sen Motul as a tech­ni­cal part­ner. To­gether, per­for­mance limits have been sur­passed, vic­to­ries have been won and records have been bro­ken. Your pride and joy might not be a race­car. But no mat­ter its per­for­mance po­ten­tial, fill­ing up with Motul en­sures that your en­gine is pro­tected by a mo­tor­sporthoned lu­bri­cant de­signed to keep it in pris­tine con­di­tion.

MOTUL LUBRICANTS ARE HONED ON RACETRACKS AND PER­FECTED IN LABORATORIES BE­FORE AR­RIV­ING IN YOUR GARAGE.
