Sprint Fuels proves its a class act!


Sprint Fuels, the Kent-based distributer of home heating oil, agricultural, commercial and road fuels swapped their usual tanker for an E-Type Jaguar this week, to compliment their trade stand at the Agri-Expo (SE) 2011. The event, held at the Kent County Showground on 1st March, was organised by R.A.M.S.A.K and officially opened by Peter Kendall, the NFU president. With a large range of exhibitors, across all sectors from farming to finance and just under 3,000 visitors, the day proved a huge success.

Sprint Fuels works very closely with RAMSAK members, fulfilling their agricultural, commercial fuel and home heating oil requirements, so they were only too pleased to support the event.

Their eye-catching stand included a Sprint Fuels branded lightweight E-Type Jaguar, which was used as a teaser style promotion to show that they will be supporting historic racing this summer to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the E-Type, by attending some hospitality race days across the UK. This prestigious Sprint Fuels liveried Jaguar E-Type will be racing at the Brands Hatch Super Prix on 2nd-3rd July, Silverstone Classic from 22nd-24th July and Oulton Park Gold Cup on 28th 29th August. Sprint Fuels are inviting any other small independent fuel suppliers that share their company ethos and would like to deliver more fuel in their own region, to get in touch. For lovers of racing, there is also the chance to attend one of the three hospitality days which is an opportunity not be missed.

Sprint Fuels also ran a business card competition to win champagne and the two lucky winners will be picked out and presented with their bottle of bubbly very soon.

This was a perfect event for us. It was good to see so many familiar faces at the show and meet new ones, said Henry Drake, owner and director of Sprint Fuels. We have a fantastic working relationship with RAMSAK and are always interested in meeting like-minded business owners. We made some great new contacts at the show, so we are pleased. A great day was had by all and a lot of farmers have walked away with a much better price for their fuel!

RAMSAK are already inviting exhibitors to sign up for next years show, to be held on 1st March 2012 at the same venue.

For a first event we couldnt be more delighted, especially as everyone worked so hard to make it a success, commented co-organiser, Karen Wheeler. We have received excellent feedback from everyone and have already had lots of people registering to come back next year. To have received just shy of 3,000 visitors is wonderful. I even managed to get a Sprint Fuels fleece out of Henry so I cant complain at all!
