This means the oil manufacturer will have a presence in both the major motorbike racing series at the same time
In addition to the MotoGP, LIQUI MOLY will now also be in view at the Superbike World Championship this season. The German oil and additive specialist is supporting the Italian GRT Yamaha team. “We’re proud that the Yamaha factory team has opted for quality made in Germany,” says CEO Ernst Prost.
LIQUI MOLY is the sponsor of the whole team. The blue, red and white logo is visible on the motorcycles, on the racing overalls, on the team truck and at the official Yamaha hospitality. The team also has access to LIQUI MOLY motorcycle products – which include more than just oils and additives. “Our product range covers all chemical needs – i.e. service products such as chain oil, care products such as gloss spray and other liquids such as brake liquids and fork oils,” says Carlos Travé, who is responsible for motorcycle trade at LIQUI MOLY. “Anything that does a good job on the race track is bound to be useful on the road, too.”
The connection with the Yamaha factory team came about through Sandro Cortese. He has been collaborating with LIQUI MOLY for a long time and won his first season in the Supersport World Championship at his first attempt in 2018. This year he moved up to the highest class: the Superbike World Championship. Here is one of the two drivers on the GRT Yamaha team.
For LIQUI MOLY, the Superbike World Championship supplements the MotoGP, where the company has been involved for many years. All the riders in the Moto2 and Moto3 use LIQUI MOLY oil. The brand is also to be seen in the Motocross World Championship. “This ensures we have a broad presence in motorcycle racing – and it benefits our core automobile trade, too,” says Ernst Prost.
The first race this season is on 24 February in Phillip Island, Australia.
