Santa Pod Raceway, the home of European drag racing, has signed an exclusive deal with VP Racing Fuels to have them as their official fuel supplier for the entire 2010 season. The deal sees the respected fuel manufacturer supplying its diverse range of race fuels to racers and teams throughout the year.
With many of the ‘Pod’s front runners from across Europe already relying on VP’s unique formulations to power them to victory, the move will undoubtedly be welcome news, thanks to the new facility for teams to either buy fuel at the Pod Shop – or for the heavy drinkers – have it delivered in bulk to their pits for the ultimate in convenience.
Commenting on the deal, Jim Kelly, European Regional Manager for VP said, ‘We’re thrilled to be involved with Santa Pod Raceway on this level. VP is the Official Fuel of NHRA, IHRA and ADRL in North America and we are the fuel supplier to some of the highest profile drag strips there. Santa Pod is the premiere drag facility in the UK so we are honoured to have been selected as their Official Fuel Supplier.’
David Lloyd Jones, Santa Pod’s General Manager added, ‘Naturally we’re delighted to have VP as our official fuelling partner. Because so many of the leading teams use it already, we know that this will be a popular move – and it hopefully removes some of the logistical problem of moving large quantities of fuel for some of the European teams.’
The timing of the partnership is perfect with racers able to order fuel immediately for delivery in time for any of the ‘Pods forthcoming meetings – simply by clicking to the online order section at www.santapod.com or by calling the team on 01234 782828.
