Lucas Oil Products – one of the world’s leading high performance lubricants and additives – is stepping up its involvement in MXGP by joining forces with FIM MXGP World Championship squad 24MX Honda. The team will now be known as ‘24MX Lucas Oil Honda’.
Lucas Oil is already a huge name overseas, with a presence in virtually every form of high level racing including title sponsorship of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
The striking Lucas Oil branding will be visible on Ken de Dycker’s and Matiss Karro’s CRF450R race bikes, race gear and also on the team race trailer.
Team owner, Marc Boone said: “It’s very exciting to assist an amazing brand like Lucas Oil in their continued push in motocross and even more so because this will further boost Lucas Oil’s profile with riders and fans across the world.
“We’re looking forward to running their products and to be a part of their research and development should be a win-win for everyone.
“Combined with Lucas Oil’s innovative marketing strategies we feel that this the perfect match for the team and everyone who’s supporting us.”
Lucas Oil Products Motorsports Manager, Tom Bogner commented: “We are proud to announce our new partnership with the 24MX Honda team. It’s a huge step for Lucas Oil to enter MXGP with the 24MX Lucas Oil Honda team!
“We put much emphasis on testing in the most demanding conditions and competing at the highest level of world motocross with guys like Ken and Matiss is going to be great for that. I can’t wait to see our riders give it their all on these iconic GP tracks.”
24MX Lucas Oil Honda will start their assault on the MXGP World Championship on February 26-27 in Losail, Qatar. Over the next seven months riders will compete on four continents tackling a wide variety of terrain.
