Leading UK fuel brand and official fuel partner of Silverstone Classic 2015, JET, has chosen VP Racing Fuels to provide on-site race fuel service for this year’s Silverstone Classic. This year’s event is scheduled for July 24-26 at Silverstone Circuit, site of the 2015 Formula 1 British Grand Prix and numerous other high profile events.
Headquartered in San Antonio in the U.S., VP has a long-standing reputation around the world for providing professional logistics and trackside fuel service with its high quality unleaded and leaded race fuels and control fuels. Following a very successful Silverstone Classic 2014 where VP fueled many cars to flawless performances and drivers set personal best lap times on a variety of VP products, it was a natural progression for VP to participate formally in 2015.
“2015 marks JET’s second year as Official Fuel Partner of Silverstone Classic,” said Pete George, managing director at JET. “Last year was a fantastic event but we wanted our involvement to be even bigger and better for 2015. VP Racing Fuels is well-established and has a strong track record in large motorsport events, so we’re delighted to work in partnership with them to supply on-site race fuel for competitors at this year’s event.”
“Being selected by JET to provide on-site race fuel service at the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, with more than 1100 entries and many capacity 58-car grids, is an exceptional accomplishment for us,” said Jim Kelly, VP’s regional manager for Europe. “Silverstone has an incredible racing heritage and we are honored to have been chosen by JET. We look forward to working with those great racers and classic car enthusiasts this summer.”
With 2015 marking VP’s 40th Anniversary, its race season began in Daytona where VP fueled the Rolex 24 Hours, followed by the Pirelli World Challenge at Circuit of the Americas in Texas and the 12 Hours of Sebring. In addition, VP will provide season-long control fuel service for IMSA, Rally America, Indy Lights and Trans Am as well as trackside sales at the Isle of Man TT and Classic TT and the SVRA vintage race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In addition to Silverstone, VP has been selected as fuel provider by several other high profile tracks including Watkins Glen, Lime Rock, Laguna Seca, Sebring and Road Atlanta in the U.S. and Santa Pod Raceway in England.
