Both MOL Group and WTCC strive for growth on an international ground, challenging status quo in order to be counted among the best. “Motorsports is a field where discipline and ambition meet. Being focused and at the same time being extremely challenging versus your competitors is key to success, just like in the oil & gas industry, where MOL Group operates.

François Ribeiro, WTCC General Manager, comments: “MOL Group’s involvement in the WTCC is already widely known through its partnership with Norbert Michelisz, one of the leading drivers in the championship. We are really pleased MOL Group has now expanded its involvement in the WTCC by sponsoring its home country event, which will bring the company the best possible complementary visibility to the Zengő Motorsport car, plus very predominant exposure through the WTCC television broadcasts.”
