CASTROL PARTNERS WITH RENAULT SPORT RACING

Renault Sport Racing and Castrol announced today a new partnership that will see the oil, fluid and lubricant brand from the international energy group BP support the French manufacturer’s customer racing activities for the next five years.

Castrol and Renault Sport Racing formalised this agreement linked to customer racing during an event held on 27 January at the Atelier Renault on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

Running through 2024, this long-term technical and commercial collaboration will give all Renault Sport Racing customer racing activities access to Castrol’s unique expertise, cutting-edge technologies and high-performance lubricants.

Castrol will benefit from significant exposure in the categories promoted by Renault Sport Racing, which will include the Clio Cup France, Clio Trophy France and Formula Renault Eurocup, as well as Clio Cup Italia, Spain, UK and Central Europe.

The Castrol logos will appear on the communication platforms of the different categories, the Renault Sport Racing staff kits as well as the competing cars and driver and crew racing suits. Castrol will also enjoy strong on-track visibility at the majority of Formula Renault Eurocup meetings.

On a wider scale, this agreement reflects Groupe Renault’s global strategy, whose partnership with Castrol has been significantly strengthened since the first collaboration in Formula 1 in 2017.

As the official lubricant supplier of the Enstone technical centre and Viry-Châtillon engine operations base, Castrol also supports Renault F1 Team on-track activities. Groupe Renault has also selected Castrol as its aftersales’ global service fill engine oil lubricants partner so that Renault customers and dealerships can benefit from the best of two brands pushing the technological limits on the tracks, stages and roads. The two entities are also working together to develop advanced mobility solutions to explore future opportunities and meet the challenges in this rapidly evolving market.

With the new agreement, Renault Sport Racing and Castrol will further strengthen their commercial and marketing links in order to bring their respective networks closer together in the customer racing markets, using motorsport as a communication vehicle to address a wider audience.

MENTUM SKIPS CHRISTMAS GIFTS, DONATES INSTEAD

Mentum has decided to skip the regular Christmas gift to our partners and instead we wanted to help the people in need.

For this, we chose three organizations across the Baltics:

Kingitud Elu in Estonia

“The foundation supports cancer patients primarily financially. We help people purchase modern medications (or treatment procedures) essential to them, giving them hope, a chance to live longer or even fully recover.”

“Cancer continues to be diagnosed a great deal in Estonia. Modern treatments are becoming more effective, but also more expensive. The Health Insurance Fund has its own formulas to determine which kinds of treatment fit under the national insurance policy. This leaves many new treatments unfit for discount. “

Ziedot.lv in Latvia

“Ziedot.lv is a charity organization founded in 2003 with the mission to channel individual and business donations to people in need. “

“Our goal is to encourage the social change by providing an opportunity to donate. We believe the society of Latvia wants to help those in need. To the ones who are suffering the most and the ones who might need only a small assistance to start the new life.”

“Ziedot.lv is a charity organization that assists to charitable giving. Ziedot.lv identifies the projects that are vitally important to the society and eliminate the root causes instead of treating the symptoms as they arise.”

Rimanto Kaukėno paramos grupė in Lithuania

“Rimantas Kaukėnas Charitable Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2012. We operate in the entire Lithuania giving charitable assistance and spreading hope, strength and joy to children who have been diagnosed with cancer.”

Their goal is simple: to make life easier for seriously ill children and their families, to help them get through the trauma of the haunting diagnosis, to support through their long journey towards recovery and to bring some light and joy into the lives of these children.

Hopefully Mentum’ part will be a small help to the people in need.
