The G-Drive Racing team, sponsored by JSC Gazprom Neft’s premium G-Drive fuel brand, has won the Russian Automobile Federation’s annual award in the Event category. The award recognizes G-Drive Racing’s outstanding achievements in 2013. For the first time in the history of the FIA World Endurance Championship, a Russian team reached the podium, achieving bronze medal position at the conclusion of all stages, having won four out of eight endurance races. G-Drive Racing will soon compete in two major events in the 2014 season: the FIA World Endurance Championship and the Blancpain Sprint Series.
“JSC Gazprom Neft’s G-Drive Racing team arrived on the scene a little over two years ago and immediately posed serious competition for rival crews in endurance racing. In the past year, G-Drive Racing has achieved even better results and absolutely deserves this prize. The category’s name — Event — matches our own evaluation of the way in which the project has evolved. The team is sponsored by the new-generation fuel brand G-Drive, which is well known among auto enthusiasts and is associated with energy, drive, and sport. I am confident that the Russian team’s next season will be marked by new achievements and will be a real cause for celebration among fans”, commented JSC Gazprom Neft Regional Sales Director and Project Manager for G-Drive Racing Alexander Krylov.
JSC Gazprom Neft’s G-Drive Racing project supports motorsports and Russian racers taking part in major world racing series. As part of the project, JSC Gazprom Neft sponsors G-Drive Racing, which is competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship in the LMP2 category.
