IN MOTOR SPORT, YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MAKE COMPROMISES, HE SAYS. UNLESS YOU DON’T WANT TO WIN. Winfried Kerschhaggl, Motor Sport Director KTM / WP WHY DO YOU THINK HE SWEARS BY US? Being successful in motorcycle racing is like winning a marathon of 100-metre sprints. Because only if everyone on the team is performing at peak level can the rider do his best. That’s why Winfried Kerschhaggl, Motor Sport Director KTM / WP, is so uncompromising when it comes to quality. “Promises aren’t enough. I need to know that I can rely on someone absolutely.” Making the most exacting demands: that’s something MOTOREX also stands for. And why we are precisely the right partner for KTM. Find out more about how our oils are helping companies from a wide range of industries to reap success:

The Americans like to say, “Make your customers say wow!” In Switzerland we tend to be more reserved, but I’m convinced that we want to delight and excite our customers too. The way we Swiss do this has less to do with boastful words and more with tried-and-true virtues such as dependability, honesty, flexibility and quality consciousness. But “wowing” customers also has a lot to do with loyalty and trust as well as with willingness to learn from them. I am asking you, our customers, to help us further improve our products and services. Give us your feedback: what makes you say “wow”, and what would you change? The experience of partnership with you is what gives us the strength and the creative leeway we need to break through outdated ways of thinking and seek new, innovative solutions, like the products like we’re proud to introduce in this issue. Let yourself be surprised by a world-first, our brand-new MOTOREX TRESOR PMC®. Following an intensive development process, we have produced a water-miscible cooling lubricant concentrate for metalworking that controls and limits bacterial growth with lasting effect using bioactive precious metals instead of biocides. The new CAR LINE motor oils put you in pole position! In the CAR LINE we offer a comprehensive solution that is both technically and economically compelling. For motorbike fans, after revamping our four-stroke motor oil line, we have now also updated the two-stroke oils in our MOTO LINE to the latest state of the art. And in so doing we have exceeded motorcycle and scooter manufacturers’ quality recommendations. You can always find something to get excited and say “wow!” about. Let yourself get carried away!
