- JET unveiled as Official Fuel Partner of World’s Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival
- New partnership celebrates fuel brand’s 60th anniversary

The organisers of the award-winning Silverstone Classic (25-27 July 2014) are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Phillips 66 that will see its instantly recognisable yellow and blue JET fuel brand become the event’s Official Fuel Partner for the next three years.
The far-reaching agreement is perfectly timed as JET is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2014. As part of its sponsorship package, JET will be giving two lucky individuals the chance to win an incredible ‘Money Can’t Buy Prize’, which includes a 25 minute GT Legends high speed parade with a professional driver, a ride in the pace car, BMW luxury transfers, onsite accommodation, a guided tour of race control, a private backstage tour of the concert area, performance driving sessions and tickets to the BRDC Silverstone Classic Dinner. Entries can be made at www.silverstoneclassic.com/jet
At the event in July, JET will take on the title sponsorship of the two renowned HSCC Super Touring Championship races.
“This is a highly significant new collaboration for the Silverstone Classic with considerable benefits for all involved,” said Event Director, Nick Wigley. “As the Official Fuel Partner, JET will make the most of the Classic’s history and esteem to engage with its customers and network of independent forecourt operators. This, in turn, will generate lots of extra interest in the Classic. You could say it’s the perfect ‘win win’ scenario!”
Pete George, Managing Director of Phillips 66 UK & Ireland Marketing, added: “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.”
