Lucas Oil To Become BDRHoF Headline Sponsor

The British Drag Racing Hall of Fame is excited to announce that Lucas Oil Products has agreed to become its headline sponsor. Lucas Oil Products is an American manufacturer and distributor of automotive oil, additives, and lubricants and was founded by ex-trucker Forrest Lucas and his wife Charlotte in 1989.

In Drag Racing, Lucas sponsors several NHRA events and many drag racers in the US, Europe and Australia. It also sponsors other forms of Motorsport with its marketing platform Team Lucas and, since 2011, has owned the cable network MAVTV, which it has transformed into a leading Motorsports network Lucas Oil Racing TV. In Europe, Lucas has a network of retailers extending right across the continent.

Les Downey, Managing Director of Lucas Oil UK, said, ‘Since it was formed almost twenty years ago, Lucas Oil has been heavily involved in supporting UK and European Drag Racing. Our story has been built upon hard work, an unparalleled line of premium lubricants and fuel treatments and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. So we are proud as providers of premium products to be associated with the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame, which has grown into an organisation that honours the great champions of the sport.’

Stuart Bradbury, Chairman of the BDRHoF, said, ‘We are very grateful to Forrest, Les and their teams for the support that Lucas Oil Products have given to many Drag Racers, tracks & events over the years, it is a great pleasure for me to have them step up to become headline sponsor. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership as the BDRHoF continues to celebrate our wonderful sport.’

The BDRHoF will be taking reservations for the 2018 Gala Awards Dinner by email at or by telephone at 01933 279102. This year the dinner tickets which include table wine are priced competitively at £70.00 each, an increase of £5 due to price rises. We have managed to keep the same rates for hotel rooms at £115.00 for double rooms and £94.00 single which includes breakfast and VAT as well as parking. The event always sells out well in advance, so if you would like to join us for the occasion we suggest you make your reservation sooner rather than later. On receiving your reservation, you will be given the procedure to book rooms.
