In addition to MotoGP, Liqui Moly is sponsoring the World Superbike championship this season. The German oil and additive specialist is supporting the Italian GRT Yamaha team. “We’re proud that the Yamaha factory team has opted for quality made in Germany,” says CEO Ernst Prost.

The connection with the Yamaha factory team came about through Sandro Cortese (pictured). He has been collaborating with Liqui Moly for a long time and won his first season in WSB at his first attempt in 2018. This year he moved up to the highest class: the Superbike World Championship. Here is one of the two drivers on the GRT Yamaha team.

Liqui Moly has been involved with MotoGP for many years. All the riders in the Moto2 and Moto3 use the company’s oil. The brand is also to be seen in the motocross world championship. “This ensures we have a broad presence in motorcycle racing – and it benefits our core automobile trade, too,” says Prost.
