North West 200 Event Director, Mervyn Whyte MBE added:

“Each year some 10,000 litres of fuel are used across all classes at the North West. We take our Health & Safety and Environmental responsibilities extremely seriously.

The introduction of WP Racing’s services will bring about significant improvements in terms of the safe transportation, handling and dispensing of racing fuels.

Through the use of approved and tested fuel containers and dispensing equipment, there will also be a significantly reduced risk of environmental contamination through fuel spillage.”

Mervyn went onto add about the introduction of a new control fuel format, for competitors/teams:

“It is in the interests of everyone involved in the sport that race results are not influenced by any potential unfair advantage brought about through the illicit use of higher performing fuels.

WP Racing will have an on site testing facility that can accurately confirm, within ten minutes of obtaining a sample, that the control fuel is being used.”
