Partnership Yields Two New Championship-Winning RC Hobby Fuels

SAN ANTONIO, TX (April 21, 2016) Officials with VP PowerMaster® today announced its sponsorship of current World Champion RC racer Ty Tessmann for the 2016 season. As part of the agreement, Team Tessmann will use two new VP blends — VP PowerMaster 25% Tessmann Worlds Blend, developed for IFMAR World Championships, and VP PowerMaster 30% Tessmann Truggy, designed for Truggy and high traction buggy applications. Both blends were developed with substantial assistance from Tessmann on R&D, according to Tommy Porfirio, Sales Manager for VP PowerMaster.

“We’re proud and excited to welcome Ty, Gord and Leann Tessmann to the VP PowerMaster racing team,” said Porfirio. “Team Tessmann demands the best and their results speak for themselves.”

“Power and fuel mileage are very important at any level of racing. With both of VP’s formulas, we sacrifice nothing,” said Gord Tessman. “These blends are time tested and have won IFMAR World and ROAR National Championships every year since their inception in 2013,” Porfirio said.
