Motul has been unveiled as the official lubricants partner to the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost.
The agreement, which sees Motul join the series’ highly respected technical team of Neil Brown Engineering and Ford Performance, will see the brand’s high-performance 300V oil used across all race engines during the 2021 season.
Their involvement through official UK distributor Witham Motorsport will add to the championship’s existing infrastructure to ensure technical parity across all cars, putting the focus on driver ability to achieve success.
It marks the latest stage of Motul’s expansion in the UK, and particularly in motorsport after their recent sponsorship of Speedworks Motorsport in the British Touring Car Championship.
Britain’s FIA Formula 4 series, which runs 30 races across 10 events on the high-profile BTCC support package, will kick off the new season at the high-speed Thruxton circuit in Hampshire on 08-09 May.
“We’re very proud of the equalisation process in our championship, and to add a controlled engine oil to that programme will further the great work that both Neil Brown Engineering and Ford Performance currently do to ensure a level playing field for all drivers.”
Richard Scarbrough, Sales Director, Witham Motorsport, said:
“We are immensely proud to have established new ties with British F4 at such an exciting time ahead of the start of the 2021 season.
“We are even more delighted to see that Motul has been chosen as the series’ official lubricant partner.
“This is the first time that Motul will be involved in the series, which does a fantastic job of developing the next generation of motorsport stars, and is a great opportunity for the Motul brand as it continues to expand in the UK.
Wayne Mathurin, Sales & Workshop Manager, Neil Brown Engineering, said:
“Neil Brown Engineering are proud to be associated with Motul and the Witham Group in the supply of the mandated engine oil for the F4 British Championship.
“Motul is a world-renowned lubricant, with a fantastic racing heritage. Given the tight performance window that we have to work with in order to ensure parity across engine performance, it was an easy decision to go with the Motul 5W30 300V.
“In fact, due to the outstanding performance of the Motul range of lubricants, we are currently looking to expand our usage of the range into our machine shop for cutting fluids.”
