BP announced as Supercars fuel partner

29 January 2020

BP Australia has signed a three-year deal to replace Shell as the official fuel supplier of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, effective immediately.

The deal means that the entire field will be fuelled by the oil company’s new E85 blend, which it has been working extensively to develop.

While the new fuel will not be available for customers to purchase from forecourts, it represents a significant step for Melbourne-based BP Fuel technologists, who have been involved in the blending and quality testing of the new fuel to ensure it meets the consistency and quality requirements demanded by the Supercars Championship.

“Bringing BP on board as the new Official Fuel Partner is an exciting partnership for Supercars,” said Supercars CEO Sean Seamer.

“The level of consistency and quality that BP will provide with its E85 fuel blend will offer a high level of reliable octane performance for our teams. We look forward to the next three years ahead with BP and we hope fans are excited for what’s in-store in 2020 and beyond.”

“We’re proud to be partnering with Australia’s premier motorsport organisation,” added BP Australia vice president Sales & Marketing Brooke Miller.

“BP’s partnership with the Supercars Championship is a natural fit. Our pledge is to ensure optimal engine performance for all teams and their vehicles on the track from 2020. We’re looking forward to the three seasons ahead and collaborating with this iconic racing series to provide a platform of innovation for not only the drivers, but for all Supercars fans.”
