Motul has becomes lubricant partner of new vehicle restoration TV series Paddock Speedshop.

Motul announced the new team-up at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show with Discovery+ – for which it is official lubricant partner.

Paddock Speedshop is designed to put a new perspective on car restoration, The programme’s leading restorers 23-year-olds Lucy Busby and Ethan Blake-Jones, who will be maintaining and restoring a varied selection of classics and youngtimers

Andy Wait, Head of UK Motul PCMO sales said, “This is a truly exciting new development for Motul. Paddock Speedshop is fresh – and hugely relevant for our growth in the classic vehicle market. As people will have seen over the last few years, the Classic sector is really important to us. Our range of products targeted at older vehicles has greatly expanded and our partnership with the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs – together with its associated partnerships – as well as the launch and development of our Club Motul concept, emphasise our commitment to this sector. Now, our close involvement with Paddock Speedshop adds another key string to the Motul bow.”

Motul is supplying lubricants, coolants, greases and associated products, together with technical support and assistance. Motul is also providing one of its BioClean sustainable, solvent-free workshop cleaning systems to the Paddock Speedshop workshop.

Series Producer, Craig Blake-Jones added; “We are delighted to be working with Motul on Paddock Speedshop. Not only do they have a comprehensive portfolio of quality products that are already proving of real use to us, but their outlook is completely aligned with that of the show. The Motul brand has a fantastic history but also has that sense of fun and enthusiasm that fits well with Paddock Speedshop and that I think will make for a really good partnership.”

Paddock Speedshop will be shown later in the year in the UK.
