Bel-Ray Company, Inc. announced a partnership with Team Aspar as the official oil for their MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 teams for the 2012-14 racing seasons.
The World Championship season begins in Qatar on April 8 and concludes in Valencia on Nov. 11 with 16 rounds in between. The series travels the globe and includes stops throughout Europe, including France, Italy and Spain. Stops also include Japan and Australia as well as two events in the United States this summer.
For the 2012 racing season, Team Aspar will consist of Hector Faubel and Alberto Moncayo in the Moto3 competition, Toni Elias and Nicolas Terol in the Moto2 competition and Aleix Espargaro and Randy DuPuniet in the MotoGP competition.
"Bel-Ray has a long history in the Spanish market, supplying the most technically advanced lubricants throughout the powersports industry," Bel-Ray COO Jennifer Liquori said. "We are thrilled to align with Team Aspar and their similar history of performance, integrity and winning. We look forward to a long partnership, filled with success."
"It is very important for us to have the collaboration of a sponsor as prestigious as Bel-Ray," Team Aspar owner Jorge Martinez said. "I am sure that this union will be mutually beneficial. Team Aspar will continue to be the biggest private team in the World Championship next season, with a presence in Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP classes. Bel-Ray will support us in all three classes. The fact that the Team Aspar has international sponsors shows that we are doing a good job, that our hard work is of interest outside of our homeland and that allying oneself with Team Aspar is synonymous with success."
