McFall Fuel are so proud to be a sponsor of Rebecca Petch having been part of her exciting journey from a junior athlete through to the elite women’s grouping on the world stage where she has made her mark. McFall Fuel were delighted when Rebecca was selected for the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2021 which is a pinnacle achievement. Rebecca made the semi-finals and finished 12th overall which was a great start to what should be a strong international career. The importance of gaining more experience racing overseas is essential for Rebecca so that she is even better prepared for the Olympic Games in Paris 2024.
Proudly sponsoring these young racers in Stock Cars and a Saloon car.
McFall Fuel began supporting Luuka Jones a year prior to the Olympics in 2016 by helping with her travel to training. The determination to be better for Rio saw four years of dedicated training to stay at the forefront in the K1W event and Luuka won silver at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 stunning not only her competitors but also many New Zealanders. At the age of 19 at the Beijing Olympics, Luuka finished 21st and then pushed on to finish 14th at the London Olympics. While a big step forward, the gains made did not fulfil Luuka’s dream. Rio saw the start of the success she wanted with the winning of a historic silver medal up against the world’s best. Tokyo 2020 (2021) saw Luuka gutted about her performance at the Olympic Games. Having worked so hard to get there and be in such good shape but that is sport. However, like all determined and committed athletes she has moved on to train and be ready for the next round of World Cup competition.
