Motul enters new partnership with Glickenhaus
Published:  17 February, 2021

 Motul has teamed up with US car manufacturer Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus in a new partnership that will include its new Hypercar, among other projects.

Glickenhaus Racing has two Glickenhaus 007 LMH cars in Season 9 of the FIA World Endurance Championship, the 24-hour Nürburgring in June, and the Baja 1000 in California in November. The WEC, the premier championship of endurance racing, features the jewel in the crown of the discipline, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and Motul is Official Lubricant Partner to both the FIA WEC and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.  Glickenhaus was the first manufacturer to signal its intent to enter the new top category of competition, Hypercar, when the new regulations were announced by the ACO. 

Motul’s 300V Motorsport Line will be used for the FIA WEC, and Motul will provide a range of high-performance fluids to Glickenhaus for first fill of all its models. In turn, Glickenhaus will recommend Motul to all owners of its high-performance sports SCG 004S models and SCG Boot off-road cars for future fills.  

  Nicolas Zaugg, Chief Value Officer Motul, said: “Being Official Lubricant Partner to the FIA WEC and 24 Hours of Le Mans, plus recommended exclusive lubricant by Gibson for all the V8 engines used in the LMP2 category, proves beyond doubt Motul’s devotion to endurance racing. However, involvement in the new Hypercar category was missing from our portfolio and this has now been fulfilled with our partnership with Glickenhaus. We are excited be part of such a great technical challenge as well as the human adventure represented by a team like Glickenhaus entering the new Hypercar category. Our best experts are working closely with Glickenhaus staff on finalising the car and it is crucial for us that the experience we will gain together will benefit not only future Glickenhaus racing models but also their street legal road and off-road cars. We can’t wait to see the two Glickenhaus 007 LMH cars racing in this year’s WEC season!”  

James Glickenhaus, President Glickenhaus Racing, added: "I am so excited to enter into a long-term collaboration with Motul to provide our road legal and race vehicles with fantastic Motul lubricants.  I'm especially happy that their technical experts will be working with our engineers to customise their lubricants where necessary, to our vehicles as they drive and race from the Baja to The Nurburgring, to the WEC, to Le Mans and onto Paris to Dakar. Three of our collection cars, our Ford MK-IV, our Ferrari P3/4 and our Ferrari 412P raced against each other at Le Mans in 1967 and I remember Motul's sponsorship of that race fondly.  It's a dream come true to be racing a car with our name on it in the top class at Le Mans under Motul's sponsorship."
