Gulf Race Fuels International has appointed Fuzz Townshend’s Classic Oils at Bicester Heritage as their UK Distributor for their new range of speciality racing fuels.
Celebrity television mechanic Fuzz Townshend, who co-owns Classic Oils Ltd, is excited about their new venture: “Ever since I watched Gulf-liveried racing cars winning everything when I was a boy,” he says, “I’ve loved their iconic colour-scheme and logo – it’s synonymous with winning, and we like working with winners!”
They will be establishing a network of stockists throughout the UK, and aim to be selling Gulf Race Fuels trackside at several classic and racing events this year as well as from their base at Bicester Heritage. “Top quality fuel is becoming essential for all of us,” adds Fuzz.
Undaunted by the current pause in motorsport, they already have a selection of Gulf’s potent formulations in stock for retail and wholesale customers. The new range includes Classic and Storage fuels, to address corrosion and other issues caused by modern pump petrol in older cars, as well as some of the most advanced racing blends available anywhere – all the way up to 116 octanes for those wanting ultra-high performance.
Mark Ticen, Director of Operations for Gulf Race Fuels, is philosophical: “Obviously not much motorsport has happened since we announced our relaunch at the RAC in February 2020, but we’ve put that extra time to good use, formulating more fuel blends ready for when racing and rallying
get going again in 2021,” he says. “We look forward to working with Fuzz’s team at Classic Oils to accelerate our mission to get back to the front in all forms of motorsport.”
