Gull Renews Support for Pukekohe Trio

Returning to the track this summer will be three famous names in Pukekohe Motorsport, and alongside them the support of family owned and operated fuel supplier Gull New Zealand confirming their second consecutive season in support for Cameron Vernon, Carl Ruiterman and Hans Ruiterman.

The trio who form E&H Motorsport will compete this summer in both national Drift and Circuit championships fuelled by Gull Force Pro, Gull New Zealand’s environmentally focussed ethanol based performance fuel which aims to increase power and generate cooler running temperatures for compatible engines types.

“Not only are the trio fantastically talented drivers with determined futures in Motorsport, but they are also great ambassadors of the Gull brand and its support for kiwi motorsport at the grass roots” says Ulrik Olsen, Business Development Manager for Gull New Zealand.

Vernon, the current D1NZ Pro Am Champion will this year step up to the pro-league in the national Drift season alongside well-known and awarded international Drifter Carl Ruiterman. Carl, who is also the driver behind the wheel of the E&H Motors Gymkhana WRX will debut the newly bedded Subaru in the country’s first season of the national Drift-Cross Championship.

For younger brother Hans Ruiterman, the redevelopment of his National Time Attack Championship winning Nissan Silvia means an entry into the top tier circuit racing of GTRNZ this summer – the 30 year old excited to take the step up in competition this year, will be gaining a step closer toward his goal of a national title in this circuit series also.

“We hope that the teams profile continues to grow in line with our expanding network of stations nationally and we are very proud to be continuing our alignment with Cam, Carl and Hans again this season. We are glad Gull can support all three again in 2012/2013 and are looking forward to more great results from the team” says Olsen.
