LAS VEGAS — Travis Wyman Racing BMW is pleased to announce Motul — which began its marketing partnership with the team in 2018 — is the team’s title sponsor for this weekend’s MotoAmerica round at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
The French lubricant and cleaning products manufacturer has provided the Travis Wyman Racing team with a variety of its products since the team’s first season competing in MotoAmerica’s Stock 1000 Class. The Travis Wyman Racing BMW S 1000 RR will be sporting larger Motul logos on its fairing at the July 9-11 event in Monterey, Calif., which is the closest MotoAmerica round to Motul’s American corporate office in Cypress, Calif.
“Motul has helped the team keep our BMW looking great and running strong,” rider/team owner Travis Wyman said. “I’m happy to have my team’s partnership with Motul front and center this weekend at MotoAmerica’s only round the great motorcycling state of California.”
Founded in 1853, Motul has been at the forefront of the lubricants industry for more than a century. In addition to two-wheeled motor sports, the company also manufactures a wide range of products for automotive, marine, construction, commercial and agricultural applications. Among the company’s achievements are the development of the first semi-synthetic motor oil in the 1960s and the first fully synthetic motor oil in 1971.
The Laguna Seca round marks the halfway point of the 2021 MotoAmerica season, and Wyman is in contention for the Stock 1000 and Superbike Cup titles. Wyman leads the Superbike Cup standings by six points, is fourth in the Stock 1000 points and is ninth in the overall Superbike Class standings.
Wyman will race four times at the MotoAmerica Superbikes Speedfest at Monterey. On Saturday, Wyman is slated to compete in the weekend’s first Superbike race at 3 p.m. Pacific. On Sunday, Wyman will be on track at 11 a.m. Pacific for the event’s only Stock 1000 race, 12 p.m. Pacific for the King of the Baggers race and 2 p.m. Pacific for Superbike Race 2.
