Motul, one of the world’s top specialists in high-tech performance lubricants, further builds on its successful partnership with GT Asia with the first-ever pole position challenge of the series.
The Motul Pole Position Challenge will put the top drivers head-to-head in a race to chalk up the most number of pole positions throughout the season. A special trophy will then be awarded at the final round to the driver who takes the most number of pole positions during the entire championship season. This new introduction is on top of a fruitful partnership, which saw Motul appointed the official lubricant partner of the GT Asia series. And with a three-hour endurance race on the cards this weekend at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, this new challenge will further bring out the competitive spirit of the talent-packed grid.
The 2015 season has just passed its half-way mark and it is shaping up to be a close race to the finish. In the driver championship standings, a mere six points separate the top six drivers, and the remaining rounds of the 11-race calendar will definitely witness intense racing among the teams.
David Sonenscher, Joint Series Director of the GT Asia Series, is glad to see Motul’s increased involvement with Asia’s leading GT championship. “Though only in its first year, the partnership between GT Asia and Motul has been strong, and the new challenge cements the bond that both brands share,” David Sonenscher said.
Mr. Lim Kee Cheong, Director of Sales and Marketing of High-Tech Lubricants AP Pte Ltd, distributor Motul in Asia Pacific, commented: “Our 300V motorsport line is the most widely used product in racing, we would like to share the joy of being at the top of its class by conferring a special trophy to the fastest car on the grid.”
The GT Asia Series is sanctioned by the FIA as an International Series and is clearly recognised as the region’s leading GT Championship. It is jointly managed and promoted by Motorsport Asia Ltd and the Supercar Club Hong Kong.
