Zytek Engineering Limited has signed a three-year agreement with leading high performance and competition lubricants specialist Motul.
The Repton, UK-based race engine and chassis manufacturer has named Motul, which has a long history of association with motorsport, as a technical partner and the supplier of its official lubricants.
Motul will work closely with Zytek on the development of its engines, supplying oil for its engine test facility, as well as workshop consumables and on-track technical support.
In addition to manufacturing its own V8 engines, Zytek is a European distributor and service center for the highly successful Nissan VK45DE LMP2 power unit. Thus, Motul will also provide the recommended oils for these engines from Nismo, Nissan’s motorsport arm.
All the fluids will be provided through Motul’s associate company MotulTech, including manufacturing oils.
Motul already has a strong relationship with Zytek through technical partnerships with two of its major customers, Greaves Motorsport and Jota Sport, both of which race the Zytek-Nissan Z11SN LMP2 sportscar.
In 2011, Greaves won the LMP2 class at the Le Mans 24-hours and finished the season as the Le Mans Series champion.
This year it has been joined by Jota, which took first place in class at the Spa-Francorchamps round of the World Endurance Championship.
Both teams will be the beneficiaries of the extended working relationship between Zytek, Nismo and Motul.
