The MSA British Rally Championship has announced that Sunoco will be the official controlled fuel supplier to the Championship for at least the next two years.
Two options of fuel will continue to be available, a specially blended super unleaded 'pump' specification and an FIA specification 102 octane, with the former being the control fuel for this year's BRC Challenge.
In keeping with the MSA championships commitment to improvements in rallying's environmental impact, the fuel will be supplied on events in a safe, controlled location by a Sunoco appointed agent. The agreement will mean that competitors continue to enjoy the excellent service, a safer environment, a level playing field and a quality product at a competitive price. Sunoco will also provide testing of fuel samples after each event and supply a chemist to carry out spot checks. Competitors will get unique access to the Sunoco website to pre-order their fuel for each event.
“We made a commitment four years ago to improve the safety and tighten the sporting regulation on the use of racing fuels,” BRC manager Mark Taylor said. “We are delighted to have agreed a new two year deal with Sunoco which will provide first class products and service to our customers.”
Anglo American Oil Company chief Anders Hildebrand said he was delighted with the deal.
“We are thrilled to have secured the fuel contract for BRC and very excited to be involved in the top UK rally championship,” he said. “We will continue to provide our renowned level of service combined with excellent products from Sunoco race fuels to ensure that we provide BRC with a stable platform on which to grow.”
