Aston Mar­tin and Total have signed a glob­al part­ner­ship agree­ment. Total will become an ener­gy part­ner to Aston Mar­tin through­out 2016 and 2017, pro­vid­ing its prod­ucts to the lux­u­ry British mar­que and its offi­cial motor­sport out­fit; Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing.

As part of the agree­ment, Total will sup­port Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing through­out the FIA World Endurance Cham­pi­onship (WEC), becom­ing the “Offi­cial Lubri­cant and Tech­ni­cal Part­ner” of Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing. With 45 years of R&D and expe­ri­ence in the area of motor rac­ing, Total has devel­oped lubri­cants, greas­es, flu­ids and spe­cial addi­tives of high qual­i­ty and tech­ni­cal per­for­mance.

Total and Aston Mar­tin will also explore options for fur­ther oppor­tu­ni­ties to utilise the ener­gy supplier’s Total Excel­li­um prod­ucts.

Pierre Duhot, Gen­er­al Man­ag­er Auto­mo­tive Divi­sion at Total Lubri­fi­ants said: “Above 250 researchers are work­ing at Total to devel­op high end fuels and lubri­cants. We are proud to work close­ly with Aston Mar­tin and to con­tribute to their rac­ing suc­cess­es. Being pas­sion­ate and push­ing the tech­ni­cal bound­aries to new heights is some­thing we share with such a leg­endary and pre­mi­um brand as Aston Mar­tin. We are delight­ed to pro­vide our prod­ucts, our sup­port and our tech­ni­cal know-how to Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing”.

David King, Vice Pres­i­dent & Chief Spe­cial Oper­a­tions Aston Mar­tin com­ment­ed: “Aston Mar­tin is a glob­al lux­u­ry brand and it is impor­tant that it con­tin­ues to work with only the best from around the world. We recog­nise Total as a lead­ing play­er in the auto­mo­tive fuel and lubri­cant are­na and we very much look for­ward to work­ing with them, to achieve suc­cess both on and off the track”.
