New Partnership for GT CUP Championship and SONAX
30 June 2021
GT Cup Championship and Anglo American Oil Company (AAOC) are delighted to announce SONAX as a long term GT Cup partner. Launching at the GT Cup event at Oulton Park, SONAX will be featured on all GT Cup entrants as part of a three-year partnership deal.
SONAX develop market-leading car care products for personal and professional use and are currently available in the UK through their sole distributor: Anglo American Oil Company. A family business that can trace its roots back to 1903, SONAX has evolved into a globally renowned brand with a research team dedicated to improving its products. There is also a historic motorsport link for the company, with a rich heritage in the DTM from 1990 through to the 2021 season with ABT Sportsline, as well as representation in Formula One.
As part of the deal, SONAX branding will be featured on each GT Cup entrant with stickers on the front and rear number plate area of the car. Bute Motorsport's Chris Haynes said “We are thrilled to be running the SONAX branding on our cars for the rest of this season and into 2022-23. We already have a strong relationship with Anders [Hildebrand] and AAOC through their supply of Sunoco fuel to the championship and it's fantastic to be able to extend that through this new association with SONAX."
Anders Hildebrand of Anglo American Oil Company said “We’ve been supplying the GT Cup Championship with Sunoco race fuels since Marc Haynes founded it back in 2007. We have always had a great relationship with the Haynes family and when we became the sole UK distributor of SONAX this year we wanted to build on the great racing heritage of the brand. With Chris Haynes having continued Marc’s great job of building GT Cup into one of the leading national endurance racing championships, it felt natural for us to use the platform to establish the SONAX brand in the UK. We are looking forward to many exciting years together.”
Anglo American Oil Company is a family-run business based in a purpose-built facility in Poole. They are the exclusive distributor of Sunoco Racing Fuels in Europe and the Middle East as well as the European agent of Driven Racing Oil. They also distribute BMC Air Filters, Zestino and Valino drift and track day tyres, Aspen fuel for garden machinery, Ecopar biodegradable diesel, and Warter AVGAS in the UK, while its in-house R brand of racing fuels, brake fluids, and oils, are quickly gaining momentum worldwide.
