BRISTOL STREET MOTORS with EXCELR8 welcomes Repsol and Millers Oils as major BTCC partner

The Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 team can today confirm an exciting new partnership with Spanish multi-energy company Repsol, through its UK distributor Millers Oils, ahead of the 2024 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season.

The new partnership will see the iconic Repsol logo adorning each of the Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 Hyundai i30 Fastback Ns doing battle in Britain’s premier racing series, and comes as Repsol prepares to make a move into the UK via its partnership with Millers Oils.

As part of the new, multi-year agreement, Millers Oils logos will also proudly appear alongside that of Repsol on the race-winning BTCC cars – putting both brands in front of large trackside crowds and a live, free-to-air TV audience across the season.

The Repsol brand has been synonymous with motorsport since the 1960s, most notably in the world of MotoGP where the Repsol Honda team has secured multiple championship titles with riders including Mick Doohan, Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez.

Repsol-backed cars have also appeared in various major four-wheeled series, including the World Rally Championship and in the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Whilst the new partnership with EXCELR8 will be the first time that Repsol along with its UK distributor Millers Oils, has been involved in the BTCC, the company is no stranger to the touring car arena having supported the Nissan Primera of Eric van de Poele in the Spanish Touring Car Championship during the 1990s.

Repsol was also a major backer of SEAT’s factory programme in the World Touring Car Championship from 2005 through to 2010, during which time it secured both the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ titles in 2008 and 2009.

The partnership comes at an exciting time for Repsol as it continues to work alongside Millers Oils on preparations to enter the UK market, with the agreement putting the brand firmly into the spotlight in front of a knowledgeable crowd packing with automotive enthusiasts.

The high profile of both the Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 team and the BTCC as a whole will also be the ideal way to promote the Repsol name to a wider UK audience.

Justina Williams, Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 Team Owner, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to confirm a new partnership with Repsol and Millers Oils for the 2024 season. The Repsol name and colours are famous across the world and we can take a huge amount of pride in the fact that they have chosen to partner with us as they bid to expand into the UK marketplace.

“As a team, we can’t wait to get started with this new partnership and are looking forward to a successful future both on and off track.”

Tony Lowe, Managing Director at Millers Oils, said:

“We are thrilled to be part of this momentous collaboration between Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 and Repsol. This partnership not only brings together iconic brands but also marks an important milestone as Millers Oils supports Repsol on making its entry into the UK market.

“The visibility of the Repsol and Millers Oils logos on the BTCC cars is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our commitment to high-performance lubricants. The BTCC platform, with its large trackside crowds and live TV audience, provides an ideal stage to introduce Repsol to a passionate and knowledgeable automotive community.

“Repsol’s rich history in motorsport, coupled with Millers Oils expertise, forms a powerful alliance that we believe will resonate well with enthusiasts and consumers alike. We are excited about the prospect of furthering our collaboration with Repsol as they embark on their journey into the UK market, and we look forward to a successful and impactful 2024 season on and off the track.”

Clara Velasco Alvarez, Lubricants Director Repsol, said:

“Repsol Lubricants is proud to join Millers Oils, our brand-new UK exclusive distributor, in supporting the EXCELR8 team in the British Touring Car Championship for seasons 2024 and 2025.

“We are passionate about the quality of our products and about motorsports, but, above all, we are delighted with our partners. Millers Oils has vast experience and knowledge of the UK market and, with EXCELR8’s proven racing skills and professionalism, makes the perfect fit.

“On top of that, the possibility for our logo to stand side-by-side on the racing cars with such an important retailer as Bristol Street Motors, is an unbeatable opportunity to present Repsol’s lubricants to UK consumers.

“Repsol’s exclusive range of vanguard lubricant oils are developed specifically for high-performance vehicles, and are the result of our long-time experience working with top racing teams.”
