Team West-Tec's plans to field a two-car squad in the National Class of the Cooper Tires British F3 Series have received a boost with the announcement of an extended relationship with lubricants manufacturer Motul.
The striking Motul livery introduced to British F3 by the team last season will be a feature of both its cars in 2010, and the deal will, according to team manager John Miller, be a big boost to its programme.
"We are absolutely delighted to be able to continue and build our successful team sponsorship with Motul, as it is truly one of motorsport's iconic brands," Miller commented, "It allows us to keep driver budgets to a minimum and also provides us with Motul's superb range of products, as well as analysis and laboratory facilities to allow us to maximise performance on track."
Motul's UK importer is Pace Products, whose spokesman Gareth Burnett added that a long-term deal was always under consideration.
"Last year we decided to start a new programme with Team West-Tec, with an eye on a good, long-term relationship so, therefore, it was only natural to continue and expand on that relationship for 2010, when we look forward to seeing the team add to their record," he noted.
