“Performance is paramount on the Dakar. On the mechanical side, every single component and accessory plays its part and, of course, this is the case for Motul’s lubricants which are used by some of the competitors. More symbolically, performance also matters elsewhere: supporting each other on the ground, going the extra mile and sharing things together. It’s exactly this aspect which interested Motul.”

The words of Etienne Lavigne, Director of the Dakar Rally, perfectly encapsulated Motul’s increased involvement from 2018 to become a Major Partner, and follows on from its commitments to endurance racing classics.
