On the road to greener mobility with gck motorsport partnership

What does the future of mobility look like? What impact will motorsport have on this? What new technologies are up for development and refinement? These are just some of the issues we consider in our constant search for new technologies and new partnerships that reflect our passion for motorsport and our spirit of innovation.

A new multi-year partnership with GCK Motorsport, the sports and media flagship of Green Corp Konnection (GCK), reflects Motul's desire to move forward with partners who share the same philosophies, with GCK using motorsport as a laboratory to develop technological solutions for the mobility of tomorrow. The 360° partnership will combine innovative, industrial, technical and racing elements and includes Motul's activities in the world famous Dakar Rally as well as participation in the brand new FIA World Rally-Raid Championship and the FIA World Rallycross Championship with GCK's Lancia Delta Evo-e RX. Motul will work with GCK Motorsport to demonstrate that tomorrow's new energy-powered cars will be able to run longer and even more efficiently, combining reliability and high performance in the race and on the road.

Motul will support GCK Motorsport in its participation in the 2022 Dakar Rally with a bio-powered drivetrain and will be a partner in the development of a hydrogen-powered vehicle to be launched in 2023/4. The partners will also focus on the FIA World Rallycross Championship, which will switch to electric propulsion in 2022. In all programs, Motul's pioneering research and development department will develop and test the latest products for tomorrow's mobility under completely new racing conditions. GCK Motorsport has established itself as a true pioneer in the FIA World Rallycross Championship (WRX), and its ambitious multi-year development plan for cross-country fits well with Motul's motorsport innovation strategy.

Christophe Lacroix, Motul Chief Innovation and Sustainability Officer: "We are very excited about this partnership with GCK Motorsport and believe that together we have great potential for the future. As a company that has always prided itself on and been driven by its spirit of innovation and passion for new technologies, we are fully invested in new technologies such as EV, hybrid, fuel cells and hydrogen. As these technologies continue to be introduced into the world of motorsports, we are pleased to be working with experts in these specialized fields. Part of Motul's DNA for more than 60 years has been to use motorsport as a living laboratory to refine, test and demonstrate technologies, and our new partnership with GCK will allow us to maintain this ethos."

Eric Boudot, CEO of GCK and GCK Motorsport, said, "We are excited to partner with Motul across all of GCK Motorsport's programs. Motul and GCK Motorsport are united in their goal to pioneer and innovate, using motorsport as a platform for technological development. Motul will support every phase of our cross-country program, from biofuel in 2022 to hydrogen in 2024, and will also be part of our return to the FIA World Rallycross Championship in 2022 in our purpose-built GCK Lancia Delta Evo-e RX.
