The Directors of the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame are delighted to welcome VP Racing Fuels as a new sponsor and supporter of its annual Hall of Fame Gala.
Headquartered in Texas, VP Racing Fuels is widely recognised as the world leader in race fuel technology, with a catalogue of more than 80 fuel blends and a growing roster of VP-fuelled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports. Already an essential presence in UK drag racing, VP Racing Fuels continues to expand its role in the sport.
As the Official Fuel Partner of Santa Pod Raceway, VP Racing Fuels provides advanced coolants, lubricants and vehicle performance additives in addition to its comprehensive range of racing fuels, along with the track prep products needed to maintain the racing surface in prime condition. The company’s support of Eurodragster.com helps that institution disseminate the daily news from Europe’s drag racing scene across the internet.
Now VP Racing Fuels joins the company of sponsors enabling the Hall of Fame to resume its annual Gala Awards Dinner honouring the luminaries of the sport after Covid-19 forced the cancellation of 2020’s celebration. The Gala returns this year to the Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge, Surrey, on Saturday 20th November.
While the Hall of Fame salutes drag racing’s past, it also seeks to foster the sport’s present and future by recognising each season’s leading Junior Dragster and Junior Dragbike competitors. VP Racing Fuels will be a prominent supporter of this year’s awards to the champion Junior racers of both 2020 and 2021.
“VP Racing Fuels is excited to be part of this year’s British Drag Racing Hall of Fame Gala,” said Tom Davis, VP Racing Fuels’ UK and European Business Development Manager. “VP has a long tradition of supporting drag racing in the UK and around the world, and this event is a premier addition to our involvement.”
Hall of Fame Honorary Chair, Lesley Wright, said, “We’re equally excited that VP Racing Fuels has elected to support our Gala on its return after last year’s Covid-enforced postponement. We recognise that VP is becoming an increasingly important contributor to drag racing in the UK and we’re grateful that the company has chosen to align itself with our continuing project to benefit the sport.”
