03 July 2018

Suresite’s market leading wetstock management system is now monitoring fuels for Silverstone Circuits Ltd, ensuring that the world renowned motor racing venue can manage in real time the throughput of its Gulf Endurance range of fuels. These include Gulf unleaded, Gulf’s premium fuel grade Endurance, Gulf 99 Octane Track unleaded and Gulf 102 Octane specially blended racing fuel formula for even greater performance.

The forecourt within Silverstone Circuits National Paddock has been extensively refurbished to meet the future needs of the circuit with Gulf Retail now fuel partner to Silverstone Circuits Ltd as part of the Circuit’s transformation into one of the UK’s leading year-round leisure destinations.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Gulf Retail on this exciting project at one of the world’s great motorsport arenas”, explains Dan Gibson, Wetstock Manager, Suresite Ltd.“The Silverstone Circuits forecourt is used 24/7 and its product range includes Gulf’s high performance, high octane  track and specially blended race fuels. These are expensive specialist products, pin-sharp blends that have to perform at their optimum and therefore monitoring flow rates is very important.

The Suresite’s wetstock management solution is a recognised market leader in detecting any loss of product in real time with no in-built delay, providing improved stock control and delivery planning for Silverstone Circuits with the peace of mind that expert support is only a phone call away.

Lee Thomas, Procurement and Contracts Manager, Silverstone Circuits Ltd comments: “Our forecourt has now been refurbished to meet future demand from both the racing fraternity and motoring public. It operates unmanned 24 hours a day and with such high-precision products on site, we recognised the importance of working with Suresite to implement the best available wetstock management solution.”

The Circuit’s entire fuel needs are now serviced by Gulf Retail, a tie up that reflects a strong commitment to the future from two businesses with rich racing pedigrees.
