Racing fuel specialist Vital Equipment has today, Friday, 15th March, been named as the brand new supplier for the Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres ahead of the 25th anniversary season, which will get underway a little over a month from now.
The Hereford-based business, which has more than a decade of experience in the safe and efficient supply of racing fuels, will provide Carless Hiperflo for the Legends Cars competitors at tracks around the UK – beginning at the opening event, at Brands Hatch in Kent, over Easter weekend.
As an official UK distributor for Carless racing fuel, Vital supplies championships, race events, teams and individual competitors across the country and also operates globally. In addition to fuel supply, the business also offers trackside fuel analysis services.
Carless has a long history of fuel refinement, dating back to 1859, and its advanced range of racing and control fuels is designed to give motorsport competitors ultra-consistent high performance, with key focus on fair play. The range of fuels meet specifications which are laid down by the FIA, FIM, CIK and Motorsport UK [formerly the MSA].
Commenting on the deal, Vital Equipment Managing Director Alistair Roberts said: “We are delighted to be adding the highly successful and popular Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres to the growing list of motorsport championships we are working with. We look forward to meeting all the Legends teams and supporting them throughout the season.”
Legends Cars owner Phil Cooper added: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Vital Equipment ahead of our 25th anniversary season and very much looking forward to working together through, what will certainly be, another outstanding season for the championship.
“Vital has a lot of experience, within the UK and around the world, with the supply of racing fuel and it’s very important for Legends Cars competitors to be able to benefit from such a service. We always strive for the most level playing field we can, and the deal with Vital is a key part of that.”
Rounds one and two of the Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres season will take place on Sunday, 21st April, and Easter Monday, 22nd April, at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit – the venue for the very first Legends Cars race in the UK a quarter of a century ago.
