SINGAPORE, Oct 14, 2019 – Best Chemical Co (S) Pte Ltd (‘BestChem’) announced today that together with its principal and global premium race fuel manufacturer, VP Racing Fuels, USA (‘VP’), it will be hosting Fuel Up For Speed! – VP Racing Fuels Seminar 2019 for workshop owners, performance tuners, race organizers, motorsport enthusiasts and its dealers on 22 Oct at Hangar 66. Experts and representatives from VP’s R&D, lubricants and international sales divisions will be sharing the latest innovations in high-performance additive, fuel and lubricant technologies and selection, tuning recommendations and more, with invited guests from the media and automotive industries.
“Given the growing interest in and demand for VP’s products here and in the region, this will be the second leg of a first-ever regional seminar series organized by BestChem and its dealers for Southeast Asia. It will be an invite-only event attended by movers and shakers of the automotive industry, all of whom are very knowledgeable, experienced and tech-savvy,” said Johnny Wong, Managing Director of BestChem. “Together with our esteemed partners from VP whom we have worked with since our appointment as [their] Exclusive Distributor for Southeast Asia in 2008, we are very privileged and grateful to have the opportunity to host this seminar aimed at fostering engagement and learning among the industry’s leading and most discerning stakeholders.” Representatives from VP will also convene with key industry players in Thailand and Malaysia on 19 Oct and 24 Oct 2019 respectively.
“As we regard race gas as a performance part [rather than as an alternative to pump gas], we believe the upcoming seminar will be an excellent platform to facilitate better understanding of how the latest, most sophisticated performance additives, race fuel and lubricant formulations can come together to boost power and performance so anyone can race to win and, win that race,” Mr Wong added.
Introducing new fuels each year that raise the bar for performance in automotive, powersports and every other fuel-driven application, VP is recognized internationally as the leader in race fuel development, quality and technical support. “This year’s attendees can look forward to tackling their toughest, most challenging technical questions head-on with VP’s fuels and tech support specialists, including Freddie Turza who is one of the most recognized and popular faces in motorsports. Not only did Freddie have the rare opportunity to learn everything he could from VP founder and self-proclaimed ‘Mad Scientist,’ Steve Burns, he is also reputed to be extremely hands-on and well-versed with engines around the world and with all forms of racing, from rally and circuit racing to ovals, drag racing, air races to off-shore boat racing,” said Mr Wong.
In addition to race fuels, another key focus of this year’s seminar will center on additives and lubricants which were not covered during previous seminars held locally in 2008 and 2012. Anticipating a turnout of 80 to 100 pax, attendees will have ample time for Q&A at the end of the seminar so they can address any specific topic(s) of interest most relevant to them.
