JET partners third Silverstone Classic

Following the success of its original three-year sponsorship deal, JET is to extend its role as official fuel partner to the Silverstone Classic for a further three years, through until 2019.

For this year’s event, which takes place from 29th to 31st July, JET has teamed up with Vital Equipment, suppliers of high quality fuels and lubricants for the motorsport industry, to provide two refuelling stations for competitors. This is Vital Equipment’s first venture into classic sports car events, having already established a respected reputation in the nation’s GT, TT, rallying and touring car events.

JET’s village green and fun fair will return again this year with the addition of sponsorship for the event’s iconic big wheel. The village green will also include family entertainment, children’s rides, chill out zones, crazy golf and a range of food and drink options.

“We’re delighted and very proud to be part of the continued success of what is without doubt, one of the world’s biggest – and best – classic motor racing festivals,” commented Mary Wolf, managing director, UK & Ireland marketing for Phillips 66. We’re also very excited to be taking on the title sponsorship of the Super Touring Car Championship races at this year’s event as part of our sponsorship.”

In June, JET will launch its unique Silverstone Classic ‘Money Can’t Buy Prize’ for two lucky individuals. This prize will include full hospitality and accommodation over the weekend, £500 spending money, and high adrenalin on and off-track experiences.
