VP Racing Fuels Supports the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame

VP Racing Fuels, Inc., has committed to sponsor the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame Gala. 

“VP Racing Fuels is excited to be part of this year’s British Drag Racing Hall of Fame Gala,” said Tom Davis, VP Racing Fuels’ UK and European Business Development Manager. “VP has a long tradition of supporting drag racing in the UK and around the world, and this event is a premier addition to our involvement.” 

While the Hall of Fame salutes drag racing’s past, it also seeks to foster the sport’s present and future by recognizing each season’s leading Junior Dragster and Junior Dragbike competitors. VP Racing Fuels will be a prominent supporter of this year’s awards to the champion Junior racers of both 2020 and 2021. 

Hall of Fame Honorary Chair Lesley Wright said, “We’re equally excited that VP Racing Fuels has elected to support our Gala on its return after last year’s Covid-enforced postponement. We recognize that VP is becoming an increasingly important contributor to drag racing in the UK, and we’re grateful that the company has chosen to align itself with our continuing project to benefit the sport.” 

VP Racing Fuels joins the company of sponsors enabling the Hall of Fame to resume its annual Gala Awards Dinner after Covid-19 forced the cancellation of 2020’s celebration. The Gala returns this year to the Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge, Surrey, on Saturday, November 20.
