Tour Britannia welcomes title sponsor

MOTUL, one of the world’s leading oil companies, has agreed a partnership with Tour Britannia, BritainR17;s historic Race Tour which takes place from 3-6 September 2007. The event will now be known as the MOTUL Tour Britannia, with immediate effect.

MOTUL has been involved in motor sport for over 40 years, supporting teams in a wide range of disciplines including Moto GP, Formulas 1, 2 and 3, Le Mans Endurance and the World Rally Championship. The French company has used motor sport as a research tool, as well as a marketing one, to great effect and its products are among the most technically advanced available.

Gareth Burnett, Managing Director of Pace Products, the UK importer of MOTUL Products, commented: “We provide products that cover the entire spectrum of motor sport, including many that are ideally suited to historic vehicles, particularly those used in competition. Tour Britannia is a relatively new event on the UK scene but, like MOTUL, has a rapidly expanding number of fans in this country. We believe that it deserves our support and that our involvement will bring the MOTUL brand to the notice of a wider audience.”

Commenting on behalf of Tour Britannia, Commercial Director Alec Poole said: “We are very pleased that an international company of such caliber as MOTUL sees the mutual benefits of joining the event as title sponsor.”

Fred Gallagher, Tour Britannia’s Sporting Director said, “For me, MOTUL has always been one of the iconic motor sporting brands. I vividly recall watching MOTUL sponsored Tecno single-seaters in the early seventies, and competing against Bernard Beguin’s MOTUL BMW M1 in World Rally Championship events.  I believe Tour Britannia and MOTUL are a perfect partnership.”
