Snoqualmie, WA (October 22, 2018) – DirtFish Rally School and world-renowned lubricant company, Motul are pleased to announce a newly-cultivated partnership. Both organizations have become leaders in the automotive industry- Motul, for providing the highest quality oil and lubricants for use in the automotive and powersports arenas, and DirtFish for their premier driving school and championship-winning motorsports team.
The partnership between DirtFish and Motul came naturally thanks to the benefits and opportunities that both organizations bring to the table. At the rally school and within the motorsports team, cars and their equipment are pushed to their limits every day of the year in multiple taxing conditions. Because of this, DirtFish has become an unequaled research and development center and proving ground for companies like Motul to put their products to the test and receive quality data in return.
President of Motul North America, Guillaume Pailleret said, “Having a technical partnership is part of Motul’s belief that our products should be put to the test in real-world environments. Our partnership with DirtFish Rally School was an authentic choice because we know that in the world of rally, vehicles face harsh conditions from the environment as well as extreme handling of the vehicles in high-pressure situations. DirtFish has a fantastic reputation as a Rally School, but they also build, maintain and test their entire fleet onsite which helps further our R&D efforts in the rally car community. I look forward to seeing where this partnership can take us, and where we can take it.”
At DirtFish, we pride ourselves in providing the best experience for our students and drivers. That quality is more than superficial and traces its path all the way down to the nuts, bolts, and fluids that keep our fleet running.
“I am very excited to be partnering with Motul!” said DirtFish General Manager, Malli Sheaffer. “DirtFish is known to be the best of the best at providing professional, high quality instruction in Subaru rally cars at our expansive facility, so we look to partner with companies that are the best of the best within their scope of Motorsports. Our students trust that DirtFish partners with only the most superior companies to align with company standards, and that is why the relationship with Motul made perfect sense. Within every facet of DirtFish, whether it is our stage rally team, fleet of school cars or rallycross cars, Motul has been and continues to be unparalleled in its performance with their lubricants and oils. This new partnership has a lot of potential for mutual growth and opportunity, and I am excited to see what comes of it.”
