- Valuable data gathered post-race aids to further improve Motul products
The highly anticipated Round 3 of the Thailand Super Series is set to take place at the Bangsaen Grand Prix from 27 June to 2 July, where Motul-sponsored teams Toyota Gazoo Racing Team Thailand and Viper Niza Racing will participate on the iconic Thai street circuit. The Thailand Super Series features highly competitive and intense races, showcasing some of the best motorsport talents across Southeast Asia. Motul’s lubricants have contributed to the remarkable results achieved by all their valuable team partners throughout the season so far.
As the crucial event approaches, the Motul teams are gearing up for an exciting race weekend with multiple entries across various classes. With the Thailand Supercar GTM class championship lead only three points away, all eyes are on Nattavude Charoensukhawatana, driving the Motul-powered #24 Toyota Gazoo Racing Team Thailand Lexus RCF GTM. Motul’s class leading 300V lubricant will enable Charoensukhawatana and the team to unlock the full potential of their race cars. The same formulation which is optimal for several classes of racing showcases the versatility and expertise of Motul’s development in delivering high-performance solutions for all motorsport needs.
Street circuits, like the Bangsaen Street Circuit, are notoriously challenging for all racing drivers due to their narrow roads, tight corners, and unforgivingly tight walls. This iconic circuit boasts unique features such as hairpin turns, bumpy roads, and height changes that add to the challenge and test the car’s reliability. While these hurdles can be potentially damaging to the engines of the cars, Motul’s top-of-the-line 300V lubricant is well-suited for harsh environments, providing the teams with the tools they need to overcome these trials. These lubricants are vital not only for the engine’s longevity but also to give the team an extra performance boost on such a competitive weekend.
Motul not only offers exceptional engine oils but also other essential products like the world class RBF700 brake fluid. This top quality brake fluid is utilized by all Motul teams in this championship, including #65 Viper Niza Racing’s Aston Martin Vantage GT3 driven by Douglas Khoo. With the steel brakes reaching temperatures of almost 700°C, premium brake fluids are crucial in maintaining the car’s braking performance at the highest level.
Motul has established a close partnership with the 5 cars entries from both teams throughout the series, and this event presents a prime opportunity for the technical development team to gather valuable data which will aid to enhance their racing-grade range of products. With a firm dedication to continuous improvement, Motul strives to deliver the best lubricant solutions, making it the top choice for both racers and everyday drivers.
