VP RACING FUELS TEAMS WITH FAGGIOLI AT PIKES PEAK

San Antonio, Texas USA (June 20, 2018) VP Racing Fuels, Inc., today announced international hill climb champion Simone Faggioli has selected VP power for his assault on the Pikes Peak record books June 24 in Colorado Springs.

“Simone is a ten-time European champion and twelve-time Italian champion in hill climb competitions,” said Peter Coleman, VP Racing Fuels Business Consultant – Europe. “We’re very happy that yet another champion has chosen VP’s Q16 for maximum results and we wish him all the best in his first visit to this landmark event.”

Pikes Peak International is a hill-climb whose track follows the slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Due to its characteristics and history, it is considered one of the most fascinating races in the world. The start line of the race is at an altitude of 2.862 meters. The track is 19.99 kilometers, over 12 miles long, with 156 curves and bends. The finish line is at an altitude of 4.300 meters or over 14,000 feet, making fuel performance throughout the elevation changes critical.

Faggioli, the 2016 FIA Masters Gold Medal winner from Florence, Italy, will be driving the Norma M20 SF PKP, a new generation two-seater prototype created by the experience of Norbert Santos with the European champion M20 FC and the MP200 made for the Le Mans 24 hours; it is designed and built in France by NAC in the Saint Pê de Bigorre factory. The engine is a TFTech six-cylinder V 60° double turbo with more than 650 hp; the gearbox is a six-speed Sadev with paddle shift.

“I have known VP Racing Fuels for many years,” added Faggioli. “Their quality fuels have helped many drivers to achieve their successes, and I have chosen VP for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race to achieve mine. This race is exceptionally important for our team, so VP is the logical choice for their quality, availability, and support. The people at VP Racing Fuels really make power, and I am excited about this cooperation.”
