Motul agrees sponsorship deal with Honda TT Legends

'As an official partner at the TT, Motul is also ideally placed to support the team on the Isle of Man. We are looking forward to seeing the results of the relationship' - Neil Tuxworth
The Honda TT Legends team has signed a sponsorship agreement with Europe's leading motorcycle lubricants company Motul for 2012.

Isle of Man TT legend John McGuinness and Simon Andrews will ride the 20th anniversary Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade on the roads at the North West 200 and TT this year and will also be joined in the team by Cameron Donald and Gary Johnson for the World Endurance Championship.

The team will use Motul's 300V Racing Kit Oil, which has been specifically developed for the Fireblade in conjunction with HRC and uses new Ester technology for maximum power output and engine performance.

Motul already has significant links with the Endurance championship through its support of other leading teams and uses the demanding class for extensive research and product development.

The company also acts as the official lubricant supplier for the Isle of Man TT and, having crowned over 50 world champion titles, is hoping to add a TT victory to its list of triumphs.

Neil Tuxworth, Honda TT Legends team manager, said: “We are really pleased to announce the agreement with Motul. The company has valuable expertise in EWC, so this is an ideal collaboration as the team enters its all-important second year of competition.

“As an official partner at the TT, Motul is also ideally placed to support the team on the Isle of Man. We are looking forward to seeing the results of the relationship.”

Hervé Amelot, Motul's managing director, added: “We are delighted to reinforce our links with motorcycling through our support of Honda Motor Europe's endurance and road racing programme.

“The Honda TT Legends team has assembled an excellent rider line-up for 2012 and, in light of our role as official lubricant supplier to the Isle of Man TT, what better line-up is there to be involved with than the fastest man around that course and the 2011 fastest newcomer?”
