Sports: Feel The Rush with Petron at the Philippine Leg of the Formula 4 SEA Championship

Petron Fueled and Lubed F4 Racecar

Petron Corporation, home-grown makers of superior quality gasoline and engine oil,  presented to the media its hosting to the 2nd leg of the Formula 4 South East Asia (F4SEA) Championship which will be held at the Clark International Speedway (CIS) this weekend of Oct. 21 and 22, 2017. 

This will be the second time (F4SEA) is using the CIS as a venue and now with Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6 and Petron Blaze Racing as its official Gasoline and Engine Oil. The 1st one was held last October, 2016.

Clark International Speedway

The Clark International Speedway is a 4.2 kilometer, Grade 4  Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA)-accredited track. Considered by race drivers as a challenging and highly technical circuit as it has 18 turms, a 970-meter straight, and runs in a counter-clockwise direction. It claims to have hosted several semi-pro championships such as the Philippine Superbike Championship, Philippine GT Championship, Philippine Touring Car Championship, Toyota Vios Cup, and many more.

According to F4 SEA Chairman and CEO Peter Thompson, "Formula 4 racing is the first step to develop enthusiasts for a professional motorsport career in the FIA pymarid, culminating in F1. Open to anyone 15 years old and above, F4 helps young drivers transition from karting to single-seat racing, and helps them learn the racecraft they need to move up in the world of Formula racing."

F4 SEA focuses on driver experience and development by ensuring a level playing field in a FIA single organization championship based on a one-make, one-data, one-cost concept. All drivers have access to race and engine data, learning from race engineers and coaches, so winning is based on racecraft and not performance aids.

With Petron blaze 100 Euro 6 as the official fuel, F4 SEA Operations Manager Mohd Sharli said, "On average, the Petron-supported cars perform more efficiently as opposed to other generic fuels. In the high-octane world of racing, every millisecond counts and that improvement helps each race driver refine their track record."

F4 SEA Technical Director Sean Thompson observed, "From our initial examination, we can see that the fully-synthetic Petron Blaze Racing Engine Oil had markedly reduced levels of carbonizations after many laps of testing. The oil was unaffected by the extreme temperatures experienced under racing conditions. There was no excessive wear and tear on vital components.  Critically, there was no loss in oil pressure."

Superior Quality Fuel

These observations further confirm the superior qualities of Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6, acknowledged as the best fuel in the Philippines. Certified by international testing institutions for surpassing the most stringent global standards, Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6 is a 100-octane pure gasoline formulation. It delivers powerful engine performance and acceleration as well as improved combustion, improved fuel efficiency, significantly reduced harmful emissions, and cleaner engines.

Petron Blaze Racing Engine Oil contains the Thermal Stress Stabilizing System (TS3), that helps reduce engine stress even at the high temperatures demanded by competition racing.  Petron Blaze Racing is a fully-synthetic high performance oil that has proven to deliver ultimate engine stress protection and excellent performance on thermal stability and engine cleanliness.
