SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Officials with Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) today announced its selection of VP Racing Fuels as the Official Racing Fuel of HSR through 2015.
The agreement names VP Racing Fuels as the preferred fuel for HSR competitors and establishes a pre-order process by which teams can order fuel and have it delivered directly to HSR events. VP personnel also will provide track side service at the Savannah Speed Classic event Oct. 24-27 at Roebling Road Raceway. Fuels available for HSR events include VP Vintage Leaded, VP Vintage Unleaded, VP110 and C12.
“HSR is excited about this partnership with VP Racing Fuels,” said Ken Fengler, Competition Director for HSR. “VP offers a variety of fuel blends and a service program to meet the needs of our customers. The innovation of VP’s Vintage blends makes for a perfect match with HSR.”
“We’re very pleased to be the Official Racing Fuel of Historic Sportscar Racing,” said Robert Rodgers, VP’s Regional Manager-Race Fuel Sales (South). “With the passion its members have for their vehicles, HSR provides the perfect platform for promoting our new VP Vintage fuel blends that were purpose-built for this market.”
“The leaded and unleaded versions of VP Vintage are each ethanol-free and designed to serve two purposes,” Rodgers continued. “First, they’ll prevent the fuel system damage caused by ethanol in today’s street gasoline and second, they’ll provide substantial gains in horsepower and torque along with increased detonation protection while the cars are on the track. Bottom line—they’ll help satisfy drivers’ need for performance and provide peace-of-mind by protecting fuel systems while their vehicles sit in storage.”
