Carless “Petrol” enables “1,000 Miles Trial” success
The heritage of our motorsport activities go all the way back to the end of the 19th century. In the UK then, Carless’ motor fuel “Petrol” was used by the majority of motorists. Since the introduction of auto racing events, “Petrol” quickly achieved an excellent reputation and became the preferred fuel.
Carless became a founding member of the Automobile Club in 1897, which was renamed Royal Automobile Club (RAC) six years later. In April 1900, they organised the most spectacular and ambitious event of that time: The “1,000 Miles Trial”.
Most of the 65 cars taking part used Carless „Petrol“. Of these, 23 finished, including the 12-horse-power Panhard driven by the Honourable Charles Stewart Rolls, a motoring and aviation pioneer and co-founder of the Rolls-Royce car manufacturing firm. C.S. Rolls used Carless “Petrol” exclusively and won the premier award for the best performance by a privately owned automobile.
Back then as today, racing teams and event organisers trust our unique racing fuel formulations. Haltermann Carless develops, produces and delivers high-performance racing fuels and value-added services – wherever needed.
