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 and 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 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."

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’.

"We are 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 him."
