GT Asia Series kicked off on 16 May at the Korea International Circuit in South Korea, with Motul as the official lubricant of the series. David Sonenscher, joint series director of the GT Asia Series, cited the growth in the region and the international interest as key reasons behind the increasing profile of the category.
The GT Asia Series is sanctioned by the FIA as an International Series and is recognised as the region’s leading GT Championship. It is jointly managed and promoted by Motorsport Asia Ltd and the Supercar Club Hong Kong.
“I’m delighted to announce that Motul will join the GT Asia Series from 2015, further cementing a relationship that they have with many of the leading teams that compete in the GT Asia Series,” Sonenscher said.
Motul, which is headquartered in Aubervilliers, France,operates in Asia-Pacific in collaboration with importers and distributors in 16 countries, with Singapore as its regional headquarters.
“We’re proud to be in partnership with the GT Asia Series for the forthcoming season,” said Samuel Kang, motorsports specialist at Motul Asia Pacific. “The GT Asia Series has gained significant presence in recent years, and interest from teams and manufacturers continues to grow. Motul has enjoyed a fantastic partnership with a number of the GT Asia Series teams over the years as a supplier of cutting edge lubricants and brake fluids, so it made perfect sense for us to partner with the Series to support their efforts and the growth in the category for the future.”
