Motul is confirmed as official lubricant supplier to the 2023 ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA for a third year.
The lubricant supplied by Motul as the controlled engine oil within the regulations is once again its 8100 X-Power 10w/60, a Fiat/Abarth OEM homologated lubricant. Like most of Motul’s lubricant range, 8100 X-Power owes much to Motul’s motorsport heritage and its using the heat of motorsport competition to help develop and test its new product, however, unlike Motul’s legendary 300V – the world’s first fully synthetic car engine oil – the 8100 range is designed for everyday motoring.
The Abarth 414-F4 engine is a 1.4 litre turbocharged, dry sump four-cylinder engine which produces around 160bhp. Neil Brown Engineering (NBE) is also again responsible for engine equalisation during the year for British Formula 4, which includes monitoring performance throughout the season to help ensure all competitors race from a level playing field.
Hugh Chambers, Motorsport UK’s Chief Executive Officer
“We are delighted to be working, once again, with Motul as the Official Lubricants Partner to ROKiT British F4. Our vision to build Britain’s FIA Formula 4 series into a global leader at this level of the sport continues, and the foundation of this is a strong technical infrastructure, both in terms of scrutineering and the quality of the components and products that we use.”
Richard Barrett, Sales Director of MDL, distributors of Motul products into the UK’s Powersport and Motorsport sectors
“We are delighted to be continuing as the mandated motor oil for the ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA again this year. Motul 8100 X-Power, the lubricant of choice for the series, is a remarkable oil. It is unusual having a passenger car oil in a race series, but it will continue to demonstrate that if it can deal with the demands of this high pressure race series, with all its extreme demands, then it is a great option for everyday road use. We are also delighted that Motul is continuing to work with Neil Brown Engineering, as they have long been convinced of the merits of Motul’s product range and are as professional an engine preparation outfit as it is possible to find.”
Wayne Mathurin, Neil Brown Engineering Workshop Manager
“Motul’s products provide exactly the performance required to help maintain parity within the strict limits of the championship and our use of their products in our workshop is extensive. We’re confident therefore that Motul will continue to give us everything we need to maintain what are acknowledged as industry-leading engine equalisation programmes. The tight window in which we operate for parity of performance on the engines means that no two individual competitors should be discernible from one another in the ROKiT British F4.”
The 2023 ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA begins at Donington Park on April 22nd.
