After more than a decade-long technical partnership with NISMO, Motul will further enhance it this year by joining the NISMO FESTIVAL as its event support sponsor.
The highly anticipated festival will take place on Sunday, December 11 at Fuji Speedway in Shizuoka Prefecture. This year’s event marks a significant milestone, as it commemorates the 50th anniversary of Fuji Speedway. Historic Nissan race cars that share a deep connection with the circuit will not only be on display for the tens of thousands in attendance, but are also slated to take to the track for demonstration runs.
Being a technical partner of NISMO’s championship-winning Super GT programme, Motul shares the same values and passion as the Japanese manufacturer. Globally, Motul’s range of products are also officially recommended by NISMO for use in their race-winning Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, renowned VK45 LMP2 engine that took its fifth class victory at the recent 24 Hours of Le Mans, NISMO-built production vehicles available for the everyday driver, among many others.
The technical partnership even extends beyond just the race track, as the French lubricant specialist also blends a dedicated range of high performance NISMO lubricants for various Nissan engines, which are available in many countries for the true enthusiast.
To allow the crowd to fully experience and immerse themselves in the “RACING DNA” of Nissan, the 19th NISMO FESTIVAL will gather active Nissan race car drivers from Japan and abroad, team principals, legendary former drivers, and race queens as they take part in various activities including talk shows, and autograph as well as meet-and-greet sessions with fans. A comprehensive schedule of activities is being planned not only for Nissan/NISMO lovers, but also car enthusiasts in general so as to build and develop a greater interest in the NISMO brand.
