HOUSTON, Texas (Feb. 2, 2009) - HYPERFUELS, a national supplier of high quality race fuels, biodiesel, additives, and lubricants, has been selected as the 2009 SCCA Pro Racing Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Series Official Fuel Sponsor.
The announcement was made as the 2009 Jetta TDI Cup Series completed its driver selection event this past weekend in Sonoma, Calif. The 10 race series will finish on Sept. 29 in Braselton, Ga. Approximately 3,192 gallons of B5 diesel fuel will be used to fuel the diesel race cars as well as the transport trucks and generators throughout the 2009 season.
“We are extremely pleased to have HYPERFUELS as a partner with the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup series in 2009. SynDiesel B5 diesel fuel is already fully approved to use in all Volkswagen TDI clean diesel powered vehicles available at local Volkswagen dealerships today," said Clark Campbell, Motorsport Manager of Volkswagen of America, Inc. "The addition of SynDiesel B5 diesel fuel in the Jetta TDI Cup race cars further demonstrates the feasibility of biodiesel as an alternative fuel source for American consumers, and supports the clean and green racing of the Jetta TDI Cup series,” added Campbell.
Jess Hewitt, President, Gulf Hydrocarbon, the parent company of HYPERFUELS added, “HYPERFUELS supports the use of biodiesel as a clean diesel racing performance fuel. Coming on as a fuel sponsor on the heels of the clean diesel technology announcement by Volkswagen in 2008 makes this a great honor. If we can help take biodiesel power to the next level then everyone wins. Cleaner burning, more power, less emissions, easy access. I can’t imagine a better fuel or better cars to debut the effectiveness of biodiesel in. The Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Series influences young and mature racers who mold the awareness of clean diesel for everyone.”
HYPERFUELS is supplying the SynDiesel® B5 synthetically made diesel fuel, with a 63 cetane rating, storage life of up to 10 years and 20% more BTU’s than conventional diesel. The same fuel is now available for purchase on www.hyperfuels.com
