Carless return as Official Fuel Provider to the British Rally Championship

The Motorsport UK British Rally Championship has announced Carless Racing Fuels will return as the Official Fuel Provider for the 2023 season and beyond.

The highly respected brand has an unbeatable record in motorsport fuelling, providing a dynamic range of fuel solutions for race and rally series across Europe, including the British Touring Car Championship, the ROKiT F4 British Championship and the Belgian Rally Championship.

With a history in refining which dates back to 1859, the business boasts over 160 years of knowledge in the field, bringing unrivalled experience in fuel supply to the British Rally Championship. Carless has a long association with the BRC, having been the control fuel of the series from 2016 to 2020.

Official UK distributors Vital Equipment, who themselves are a regular sight at motorsport events across the country, will be on hand at every championship round, dispensing fuel to BRC competitors with its highly controlled, safe refuel rigs.

In addition to providing the Hiperflo Turbo Ultimate Dev 2 for the Rally2 and Rally4 categories, Carless will also make their Hiperflo Super Plus available to competitors who wish to run a cost-effective Super Unleaded alternative and will supply the BRC for the next three years.

BRC Championship Manager Reece Tarren commented: “We are delighted to welcome Carless and Vital Equipment back to the British Rally Championship. Both brands are a staple of British motorsport, with many competitors already using their services and their experience, support and dedication both on and off events is unrivalled in the business. A control fuel in the BRC is essential to creating a fair and level playing field and we hope by giving some stability to our competitors, it will offer better consistency across their rallying season.”

Adrian Stuart, Haltermann Carless Sales Executive – Motorsports said: “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the British Rally Championship and the supply of our high-performance race fuels for the next three years. The partnership alongside Vital Equipment’s refuelling service will allow us to support the talented drivers and teams competing in the championship. We look forward to the start of the 2023 season and wish all the teams the best of luck.”

Alistair Roberts, Managing Director of fuel distributors Vital Equipment said: “Vital Equipment is proud to return to the British Rally Championship as the official fuel distributor. We look forward to working with both the championship and event organisers in supplying competitors with the proven Carless Racing Fuels range, via our on-event refuel service.”
