Race Fuels Pty Ltd has taken over as V8 Supercars’ official fuel supplier.
V8 Supercars Australia issued a memo to all team owners today, stating that former supplier Fuel Control is no longer the authorised fuel distributor, with Race Fuels taking over the distribution of the Sucrogen E85 for V8 Supercars, as well as the 98 Octane in Australia and the distribution of Sucrogen E85 to the overseas events.
Fuel Control was the supplier to the V8 Supercars Championship/Australian Touring Car Championship for over 25 years.
The company will supply both the V8 Supercars Championship and the Development V8 Series cars.
Race Fuels is owned and operated by Mark Tierney, based in South Melbourne. The Tierney Group of companies includes a retail fuel network (22 BP branded sites throughout regional Victoria) and specialises in the supply of fuels for both racing and industry reference purposes.
Race Fuels is also Australia’s importer and distributor of Elf Fuels.
