Added value benefits for members
Motorsport UK is the national membership organisation at the heart of UK motorsport, licensing and administering four-wheeled motorsport across the UK. The organisation currently has over 45,000 members who compete, officiate and marshal at events right around the country. They have also recently launched ‘Trackside’ fan-based membership to bring enthusiasts and spectators closer to the action. Each Motorsport UK member has access to an exciting range of Member Benefits offered by a growing list of commercial partners. The new agreement with WEX Europe Services, the first fuel card provider to join the Member Benefits Programme, gives Motorsport UK members access to a host of additional Esso Card™ benefits that will reduce the price of competing in and enjoying motorsport. Through the Esso Card™, all Motorsport UK members will save an average of 5p per litre off the pump price of diesel with additional savings on petrol and premium fuels.
The Motorsport UK member benefits scheme enables members to recover potentially hundreds of pounds a year on motorsport and motoring in general. The package also includes reduced cost tyres, free eye tests, discounts at Halfords, and reduced insurance premiums. More details about the benefits are available on link below and members can access information to utilise their discounts on the member area of the Motorsport UK website.
Straightforward fuel savings
With their free Esso Card™, Motorsport UK members gain access to one of the largest international filling station networks and the opportunity to collect Nectar points with fuel purchases at participating Esso branded sites in the UK. With simple, VAT compliant invoices, no minimum usage requirements or transaction fees, members can easily keep track of their fuel spend – paying weekly only for the fuel they have purchased. Esso Card™ is accepted in eight countries across Europe including Germany, France and Italy, so Motorsport UK members can fill up with ease at home and abroad.
