VP Racing Fuels has been named Official Racing Fuel and Official Small Engine Fuel of Watkins Glen International for all events with the exception of NASCAR. In addition to becoming The Glen’s official fuel supplier, VP Racing Fuels will also be the presenting sponsor of the Ferrari Challenge North America event at WGI, September 19-21, now titled “The Ferrari Challenge North America presented by VP Racing Fuels.”
“VP has been racing since the early 70’s and like WGI, has a rich history of precision and performance,” stated Michael Printup, President of Watkins Glen International. “We are thrilled with their partnership as presenting sponsor of our new Ferrari Challenge North America event this September. Watkins Glen race fans will love this event!”
The historic road course, host to past Formula 1 and CART events, will now rely on VP products to fuel their IMSA, SVRA Vintage, SCCA and on-track events according to the recently announced multi-year contract. VP’s race fuel products will be available at the track pumps for all track rental customers.
“As fuel supplier to the NHRA, IMSA, Rally America, DIRTcar and many others we’ve had the opportunity to work at some very well known venues in North America,” said Jim Kelly, VP’s Regional Manager for Eastern U.S. and Europe. “Fueling the Rolex 24 Hour race in Daytona Beach this year was incredible for everyone at VP, but being chosen by Watkins Glen to provide fuel service at the track where Graham Hill, Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mario Andretti and so many other road racing superstars competed is especially rewarding.”
