Back in 2013 TOTAL immediately believed in the Asian Le Mans project and potential and was one of the first partner of the series. With this new partnership TOTAL will be associated with the whole ACO platform in Asia (7 events and 10 races between May and January) and will then benefit from a larger exposure both on and off the track which complement its growing presence within the context of the major events held in Le Mans.
Highly experienced in motorsport and with leading-edge technology, the French petroleum company will exclusively supply the Asian Le Mans Series field with 102RON fuel developed by TOTAL Additives & Special fuels when it will concentrate on promoting their lubricant products in the Asian Le Mans Sprint Cup.
Eric Reverberi, TOTAL Marketing & Services, Rally & Endurance Manager: "At TOTAL we pride ourselves on being at the cutting edge of innovation and technology in motorsports. s racing The Asian Le Mans platform provides a fantastic opportunity for us to further elevate and extend our work in Asia, and position ourselves at the forefront of motor racing in this strategic region."
Cyrille Taesch Wahlen, Asian Le Mans Managing Director: "The renewal of our partnership with TOTAL is a very good news and makes perfect sense within the context of the long-term development of the ACO platform in Asia. They need to be thanked for their continuous support. The combination of the new Asian Le Mans Sprint Cup and a stronger Asian Le Mans Series clearly widens the marketing and media/new media opportunities".
