Automechanika Birmingham: Guy Martin to open Big UK Garage Event

Published:  17 May, 2019

Morris Lubricants brand ambassador, television personality and mechanic Guy Martin will open the Automechanika Birmingham Big UK Garage Event on Tuesday 4 June.

Guy Martin will also will play a big part in Morris Lubricants’ presentation at this year’s show. Taking time out from his busy schedule, Guy will be present on the Morris Lubricants stand (Stand K110) throughout the day on 4 June, and will also be taking part in a live Q&A session with the company’s renowned expert on all things lubricating, Adrian Hill, from 13.45 to 14.15. This will be the perfect opportunity to find out more about Guy and his work with Morris Lubricants.

Morris Lubricants has a special appeal for Guy, as a British-based independent manufacturer of oils and lubricants, the company seems a natural fit for the personality. “I like the fact they’re British, have a range of everything you could need and are good honest folk,” he said. In his role as a brand ambassador, Guy has spent time at Morris Lubricants’ facilities in Shrewsbury, where the company produces its multitude of products beneath its landmark clock tower. “Originally, I just thought it was a few blokes in a shed in Shrewsbury, but to come here and see what goes into the blending and testing the oils is amazing,” he mentioned during his tour last year. “I’d underestimated the whole Morris operation, but it’s now an honour to be part of it.”

The appreciation flows both ways in the partnership. “Having Guy as an ambassador for the company is great as he is not only a highly skilled engineer, but he also has good knowledge and experience using the products,” said Morris Lubricants Marketing Executive Andrew Simms. “He is also a thoroughly honest bloke, who says it as he sees it.”

Guy can often be seen promoting the company’s extensive range of automotive products for the motorcycle, car and truck markets. The Shrewsbury based company is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, and its stand at Automechanika Birmingham will reflect this, while also looking to the future. Morris Lubricants will be showcasing its latest technology automotive lubricants, including the Multivis engine oil range, while also inviting visitors to take a step into augmented reality and journey through an engine with the Morris AR app. . Morris Lubricants can be found on stand K110 at Automechanika Birmingham.

    “I like the fact they’re British, have a range of everything you could need and are good honest folk,” he says. “They sent me a load of samples, and I didn’t know how many products they had and it's all good stuff. Whether it’s on the trucks, cars or bikes, even my tractor, the quality is spot on.”
    Working with Morris Lubricants also gives Guy plenty of different opportunities, including the possibility of ‘brewing’ his own oil. “I'd be up for that, I’m not an expert on oil, but I'd be keen on learning!”
