Jet has announced that Nicolas Hamilton, brother of the Formula One World Champion Lewis, has been appointed as the fuel brand’s ambassador for 2015.
Nicolas, who has a form of cerebral palsy, is an avid racing driver and vocal campaigner for disability in motoring, will also help to promote the Phillips 66 vision of ‘providing energy – improving lives’ and Jet’s ‘On the Journey Together’ theme. Throughout the year, he will be getting involved in Jet’s campaigns, promotions and events, including Silverstone Classic in July, where Jet will again be the official fuel partner.
Nicolas commented: “I am really excited to be working with Jet and Phillips 66 as their ambassador for 2015. There are many similarities in how we both approach achieving our goals and ambitions – yet also areas we can learn from one another. I am certainly looking forward to developing the partnership next year.”
Pete George, managing director of Phillips 66 UK & Ireland Marketing, added: “Despite living with a challenging and debilitating condition, Nicolas has made it his life motto to ‘Exceed Expectations’. Having met with Nicolas at Silverstone Classic earlier this year, we knew straight away that he would make an excellent ambassador for Jet as it is our continued goal to exceed the expectations of our Jet network.
“We are very much looking forward to working alongside Nicolas over the next 12 months and to giving our dealers and distributors the opportunity to find out more about and be inspired by this dedicated young sportsperson and campaigner.”
