MIAMI — The Trans-Am Race Company announced today that VP Racing Fuels has been named the “Official Fuel” of the Trans-Am Series, and will be the sole supplier of racing fuel beginning with the 2012 season.
Under the agreement, VP Racing Fuels has been granted the exclusive right to sell racing fuel to all Trans-Am competitors. Competitors will have the option to use VP’s “C12” leaded or “C10” unleaded. VP also will provide track-side sales and technical support to Trans-Am Series Officials.
“I am looking forward to our new partnership with VP Racing Fuels,” said John Clagett, president, Trans-Am Race Company. “VP, with its broad inventory of nearly 70 blends, had the perfect fuels to meet the ultra high performance requirements being sought by our race teams in three different classes, and just as important, VP’s reputation for excellence for its track-side service was a huge consideration as well.“
“When you want to talk American V8 road racing, you’re talking Trans-Am and we are very happy to be fueling that series again in 2012,” said Jim Kelly, VP’s Director of Racing Fuel Sales. “We’re looking forward to establishing a new partnership with The Trans-Am Race Company. There is iconic history embedded within Trans-Am and we are looking forward to joining them in this new chapter.”BREAKING NEWS: SPEED SPORT is back in print with a new monthly format!
