Anglo American Oil Company Ltd. has been announced as the official fuel supplier to the BRDC Formula 4 Championship, starting from the opening round of the Duo BRDC F4 Autumn Trophy. The deal will see Sunoco RMR, an MSA conformant 100 octane race fuel, used in every new-for-2016 Tatuus-Cosworth car during the entirety of the Autumn Trophy and the 2016 season.
Anglo American Oil Company Ltd. is the official distributer of Sunoco race fuel throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East and will supply the fuel to BRDC F4, whilst also administering fuel testing after each qualifying session and race to support the championship’s scrutineers. As part of the deal, the Sunoco logo will feature on the front-wing endplates of every BRDC Formula 4 car on the grid.
Sunoco, manufactured in Philadelphia, United States, is the largest manufacturer of high quality race fuels in the world and supplies a number of international racing championships including NASCAR and the IndyCar Series. Sunoco produces a range of racing fuels from 100 octane to 120 octane, including E85, and supplies fuel to the British GT Championship, which will co-headline seven race meetings alongside BRDC Formula 4 in 2016.
“We are delighted to have been chosen as the official fuel supplier to the BRDC Formula 4 Championship,” commented Anders Hildebrand, managing director of the Anglo American Oil Company. “We are already working with other MSVR Championships such as the Radical, GT Cup and Mini Challenge championships so it made perfect sense to put together a package for the new exciting Formula 4 cars – especially as they are on the same platform as British GT which is also running Sunoco race fuels.
“Sunoco was also the official fuel supplier for the now dormant British F3 Championship and I can see that with the backing of MSVR that the BRDC Formula 4 will be as exciting and an excellent platform for future Formula 1 stars.”
