Fuel Protect has been announced as the new title sponsor for the 2015 Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli: under the deal, which includes a comprehensive hospitality package, participating Fuel Protect-branded Porsches will compete in the 14-race, seven-meeting season, with races featured internationally on Motors TV in scheduled stand-alone programs.
The new sponsorship is the culmination of a long-term series of promotional activities with race-prepared Porsches and Porsche track days carried out by Auto Fuel Fix, which, as the UK’s largest independent roadside specialist recovery services, attends all mis-fuelling incidents covered by Fuel Protect.
Fuel Protect, a brand new insurance product, launched by Andeva Underwriting Agency Ltd, addresses the risk of mis-fuelling incidents, substantially minimizing both costs and consequences, and provides cover for just £20 a year. Under Fuel Protect’s insurance, Auto Fuel Fix specialists ‘race’ to the scene, drain the contaminated fuel and ensure that the vehicle can be restarted to continue its journey with minimum inconvenience, waiting time, costs and further damage.
“We have been involved with the Porsche Club Championship for years,” says Auto Fuel Fix MD Bruce Compton, “as our AFF Racing Porsche participated in the races. It made sense, for us, to celebrate the launch of Fuel Protect by becoming even more involved with the racing series and secure the title sponsorship.”
“We are pleased to welcome Fuel Protect as title sponsor of the Fuel Protect Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli,” says Porsche Club Motorsport’s Steve Kevlin. “Fuel Protect and the Porsche Club Championship are a good fit. The involvement of Fuel Protect ensures the championship will be televised in full during the 2015 season.”
The 2015 Fuel Protect Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli, which starts on May 2, consists of seven races at major UK circuits, including the full GP course at Brands Hatch and Silverstone, as well as Oulton Park, Croft, Snetterton 300 and Donington Park; it is competed across three classes.
