VP’s lubricants family includes fully synthetic professional grade racing oils and high-performance synthetic blend oils as well as gear oils, an engine break-in oil and engine assembly lube.
“We’re known around the world for developing and distributing products that improve performance and longevity for racers, enthusiasts, and general consumers,” said Bruce Hendel, VP’s Vice President, North American Sales – Race Fuels and Consumer Products. “VP Racing Fuels has a global reputation for powering race wins and championships from the Isle of Man TT to Daytona and Indianapolis and in all types of motorsports.
