Gulf Race Fuels welcome McLaren-Gulf partnership announcement

As Gulf announced a new partnership with world-famous race team McLaren Racing and luxury supercar company McLaren Automotive earlier today, Marc Wesler, Director of Gulf Race Fuels (part of the global Gulf brand)provided the following comment:  

“We’re excited to be part of Gulf’s journey back to the front of global racingMany will already be aware that here at Gulf Race Fuels we too are on the offensive, having recently launched a new portfolio of fuels for a number of disciplines across all levels of motorsport, truly highlighting the fact that the brand is back and ready to race.” 

The #GulfShiftingYears announcement sees the iconic blue and orange brand return to the F1 grid as part of an agreement with the race team that it appears so regularly alongside throughout the history books. The Gulf-McLaren partnership is as old as the Woking-based race team itself, stretching back to the 1960’s. Since then, the two brands have never looked back, earning success across a number of disciplines, including the BPR Global Endurance Series (1996) and the GT Class at the 1997 Le Mans 24 Hours. Many McLaren cars have donned the iconic Gulf livery, perhaps most memorably the Gulf McLaren F1 GTR.
