County Tyrone based motorsport supplier, Euro M-Sport, will provide control fuel to international competitors of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.
The deal has been envisioned to reduce fuel costs for ITRC’s registered competitors and further levelling the playing field across leading crews.
Euro M-Sport will supply Panta racing fuel, utilising a breadth of experience that spans racing teams and prestigious championships like the British Superbike Championship.
Not only will this deal reduce competitors’ running costs but it also will improve efficiencies and safety at service and refuel zones. Euro M-Sport will look after the delivery of Panta racing fuel to each event’s refuel zone.
Euro M-Sport is one of the UK and Ireland’s largest racing fuel, tyres, and motorsport parts suppliers.
Colman Hegarty, TROA chairman:
“The ITRC’s board of directors have been looking at the possibility of a single controlled fuel for some time.
“In the early part of 2022, a decision was taken to enter into a tender process with fuel suppliers. Part of that tender stipulated that the selected fuel supplier would offer registered international competitors fuel at a discounted rate.
“After careful consideration, the decision was taken to award the contract to Euro M-Sport, agents for Panta racing fuels.
“We see this as a major step forward for our championship as all registered international competitors will be using a single fuel and in a safe and controlled manner.
“The Irish Tarmac Rally Championship looks forward to the 2023 season, working with Mick McCullagh and his team at Euro M-Sport to bring quality fuels in a cost-effective and safe manner to our registered competitors in the international category.”
Mick McCullagh, Euro M-Sport:
“As both a business and long-time follower of the Irish Tarmac Championship, Euro M-Sport is extremely proud to become the control fuel supplier for the championship.
“It is a perfect fit for our current race fuel operations across Europe, providing the competitors with a new level of service.
“We have a wealth of experience in servicing controlled fuel championships, events and series and are providers of racing fuels to numerous automotive manufacturer race programs and works racing teams.
“As well as providing race fuel, we are the analytical partners of prestigious events such as the North West 200 Road Races and the British Superbike Championship, ensuring there is a level playing field for every team and competitor racing and that race results are not influenced by any potential unfair advantage brought about through the illicit use of fuels.”
