Motul has announced they will be the official Lubricant Partner of Craft-Bamboo Racing for the Macau GT Cup at the upcoming 68th Macau Grand Prix. The Hong Kong team will have multiple-time winner Darryl O’Young at the helms of their #95 Mercedes-AMG GT3 as he prepares to take part in his 17th Macau Grand Prix. The 68th Macau Grand Prix will be held from 19 to 21 November 2021 at the world renowned Guia Circuit.
The racing team will be Motul 300V for their Mercedes-AMG GT3. The car will use the Motul 300V Competition 0W-40 for its AMG 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine and Motul Gear Competition 75W-140 for the 6-speed racing transmission. Being the Lubricant Sponsor, O’Young’s car will also feature the iconic Motul red as it zips through the super narrow and challenging Guia Circuit.
The 2021 Macau GT Cup will feature 19 of the best racing talents from Hong Kong, China and Macau racing in GT3 cars from 6 different manufacturers and O’Young will be hoping to put his Motul-powered Mercedes-AMG at the front of the grid.

“I’m really excited to have Motul as our lubricant partner for the Macau Grand Prix. Firstly, it’s great to have such an iconic brand on our car design, but most importantly is to have the extra performance and reliability that Motul is known to deliver with their 300V oil product in our Mercedes-AMG GT3 V8 engine. In racing we look for every advantage we can get, and lubricant is a great place to find those valuable tenths of a second to help improve our lap time. I’m really looking forward to the race this year, it’s going to be exciting.”
Carlo Savoca | Chief Marketing Officer, Motul Asia Pacific
“The Macau GP is one of the biggest racing events in Asia, if not the world. This year, I am super excited to have Motul as the Lubricant Partner with an official Mercedes-AMG Performance Team Craft-Bamboo Racing. I am also very proud to have such a reputable and successful team use only Motul lubricants in their AMG GT3 for the Macau GT Cup. I am confident that this will be a winning combination and our 300V will bring home a win for AMG and Motul fans. It is an incredible opportunity to be a part of this event and I thank Craft-Bamboo Racing for working with us. I am looking forward to seeing Darryl O’Young race through the streets of Macau in the red Motul liveried AMG and I wish him and his team all the best for the race!”
