VP Heads Across the Pond

Apr 26, 2015

JET, a leading UK fuel brand and official fuel partner of Silverstone Classic 2015, has chosen VP Racing Fuels to provide onsite 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, according to a press release.

“2015 marks JET’s second year as official fuel partner of Silverstone Classic. Last year was a fantastic event, but we wanted our involvement to be even bigger and better for 2015,” noted Pete George, managing director at JET. “VP Racing Fuels is well-established and has a strong track record in large motorsports events, so we’re delighted to work in partnership with them to supply onsite race fuel for competitors at this year’s event.”

Following a successful Silverstone Classic 2014 where VP fueled many cars 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, the release added.

“Being selected by JET to provide onsite race fuel service at the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, with more than 1,100 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.”

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, he said.
