Published:  09 April, 2021

Motul has been named as the official lubricants partner to the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. The agreement, which sees Motul join the series’ technical team of Neil Brown Engineering and Ford Performance, will see the brand’s high-performance 300V oil used across all race engines during the 2021 season.

Their involvement through official UK distributor Witham Motorsport will add to the championship’s existing infrastructure to ensure technical parity across all cars, putting the focus on driver ability to achieve success .It marks the latest stage of Motul’s expansion in the UK, and particularly in motorsport after their recent sponsorship of Speedworks Motorsport in the British Touring Car Championship. Britain’s FIA Formula 4 series, which runs 30 races across 10 events on the high-profile BTCC support package, will kick off the new season at the high-speed Thruxton circuit in Hampshire on Saturday 8 May and Sunday 9 May.

Sam Roach, Championship Promoter said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Motul and their UK distributor Witham Motorsport to British F4 and look forward to a successful partnership with them on board as our official lubricants partner. We’re very proud of the equalisation process in our championship, and to add a controlled engine oil to that programme will further the great work that both Neil Brown Engineering and Ford Performance currently do to ensure a level playing field for all drivers.”

Richard Scarbrough, Sales Director, Witham Motorsport, observed: “We are immensely proud to have established new ties with British F4 at such an exciting time ahead of the start of the 2021 season. We are even more delighted to see that Motul has been chosen as the series’ official lubricant partner. This is the first time that Motul will be involved in the series, which does a fantastic job of developing the next generation of motorsport stars, and is a great opportunity for the Motul brand as it continues to expand in the UK.

Wayne Mathurin, Sales & Workshop Manager, Neil Brown Engineering, added: “Motul is a world-renowned lubricant, with a fantastic racing heritage. Given the tight performance window that we have to work with in order to ensure parity across engine performance, it was an easy decision to go with the Motul 5W30 300V.In fact, due to the outstanding performance of the Motul range of lubricants, we are currently looking to expand our usage of the range into our machine shop for cutting fluids.”


Motul has a long history in the automotive world, having been established in 1853 and developing the first multigrade engine lubricant in 1953. 1966 was a hallmark year in Motul’s pursuit of invention with the creation of ‘Century 2100’ - the inaugural first semi synthetic oil, hailed by the whole automotive sphere as the industry’s next catalyst to high performance.

In 1971, Motul was the first lubricant manufacturer to pioneer the formulation of a 100% synthetic lubricant for automotive engines based on technology from the aeronautical industry. 300v was born, and using today’s technology, is considered as the benchmark in motorsports.

Motul continues to develop its lubricant technology today and is involved in the triumphs of many global racing teams from the Dakar Rally to Goodwood Revival. Motul has also developed strong technical agreements and cooperation with many OE manufacturers such as Honda HRC, Suzuki, , MV Agusta, Nissan Nismo and Subaru as well as high performance engineering companies such as Brabus, RUF and APR.
