Jet has announced a three-year sponsorship package that will see the fuel brand appointed as the official fuel partner of Silverstone Classic, as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations. The deal means Jet will also take on the title sponsorship of the two iconic HSCC Super Touring Car Championship races.

In the run-up to the World’s Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival, which takes place at Silverstone from July 25 - 27 2014, Jet will be also giving away a ‘Money Can’t Buy Prize’.

The unique prize for two individuals includes a 25-minute GT Legends high-speed parade with a professional driver, a ride in the pace car, BMW luxury transfers, a helicopter ride, onsite accommodation, a guided tour of Race Control, VIP concert stage bar passes with a private backstage tour of the concert area, performance driving sessions, tickets to the BRDC Silverstone Classic Dinner and £500 spending money.

Pete George, managing director of Phillips 66 UK & Ireland marketing, said: “2014 marks the diamond anniversary of our fuel brand Jet – 60 years since Jet opened its first petrol forecourt in Yorkshire. This is a real milestone for us as a company and an achievement that we are very proud of. As part of our anniversary celebrations, we are delighted to become Silverstone Classic’s first Official Fuel Partner. To be part of the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival at the iconic Silverstone circuit is a great honour and seems a fitting way to mark 60 years of delivering the highest quality fuel to our network of 300+ independently operated service stations.

“Over the next three years, our sponsorship of this hugely popular event will provide us with a number of opportunities to engage with sports and motoring enthusiasts throughout the UK.”
