High performance Motorsport engines are designed to operate at the very edge of the envelope where even the smallest deviation from planned stresses, temperatures and pressures can lead to a catastrophic failure. The type and quality of fuel used is a vital part of this engineering design.
Many Motorsport championships also legislate the type of fuel that must be used – a control fuel – and use track-side sampling and fuel analysis testing to detect non-conforming or non-approved fuels. There factors demand reliable, high performance racing and control fuels which provide identical and predictable fuel, time after time.
Environmental issues are also increasingly important at all Motorsport events. Fuels are formulated to be low sulphur, low benzene and to contain bio or non-hydrocarbon components.
We have a strong heritage in racing fuels activities, through the formerly named companies Petrochem Carless & ETSP, which are highly involved in the Motorsport activities with the respective Carless Hiperflo & ETS Racing Fuels brands.
With the high quality Bespoke Fuel Services, we’re one of only a few companies in the world with the skills, experience and advanced facilities to develop and produce Motorsport fuels to the high quality required.
