The middle part of the year is traditionally one of the busiest for Gulf, despite the fact that the football season has ended.

It kicked off in fine style as Gulf’s cricket team in the Indian Premier League, the Chennai Super Kings, lived up to their name and put in a super performance to mark their return to the IPL in the most regal way possible, by winning the IPL crown.

Motorsport-wise there are some huge events for Gulf to celebrate this year with the Monaco Historic Grand Prix and, of course, the Le Mans 24 Hours – with the 50th anniversary of the first Gulf Victory there.

Not only that, but we had some fantastic performances on two wheels to celebrate, as Gulf took to the Isle of Man to compete in the legendary TT for the first time and some three weeks later, we also witnessed the first appearance of a Gulf bike and rider on a World Superbike Podium.

Gulf has also extended its association with King Racing to encompass a busier year for the drag team than they have ever undertaken.

Even though Manchester United’s season is over, on the pitch, its players have been making their presence felt at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the team has already been busy in the transfer market, ahead of August’s return to Premier League action. Manchester United Legends have also proved as popular as ever in appearances all over the world, in the last couple of months.

2018 is already turning into the busiest sporting year for Gulf yet, offering more opportunities than ever to activate one or more parts of our excellent sporting platform to best advantage for your business.

With so many highlights, it’s hard to know where to start, but a quick glance through the contents of this edition of Gulf Sport will hopefully give you some inspiration – as well as an idea of what is to come over the next few months….

Wishing you good sport and even better business!
