Unified Petroleum Autosports is a virtual racing team participating in racing series sanctioned by Realish Racing.

Team History

Unified Petroleum Autosports (UPA) was founded on December 18th 2016 under the pseudonym 'The Fast and the Furryous.' Speculation of a potential new team entering the fray for 2017 had been circulating the paddock after the conclusion of the 2016 GEARS Race of the Aztecs, where now owner Kyran briefly mentioned the purchase of a Gold Pleb Club membership. These rumours were fueled after a series of subtle hints were dropped by Kyran in the days running up to the 2016 GEARS Carnival of Speed.

It was heavily suspected that Kyran had negotiated a deal to acquire the services of current Defenders driver, April Carlsvard. After a long period of secrecy, denial and misdirection, this was revealed to be true. Although the identity of the team that they would race under remained unknown.

In the early weeks of December 2016, the plan to run under a one-off banner was devised and the duo announced their participation at Crashmas VI. 'The Fast and the Furryous', a reference to a certain popular movie franchise as well as to the identities of the drivers themselves. Their debut at the final special event of 2016 showcased the team's potential, with April taking one victory alongside three podiums in the Banger Race championship. Thanks to the traditional 'stupid point rules', April successfully defended her Crashmas crown, flabbergasting the entire TeamSpeak lobby and sending her into an uncontrollable fit of laughter. This triumph marked possibly the greatest team debut in recent history.

After the conclusion of Crashmas VI, the true identity of the team was revealed. Unified Petroleum Autosports entered the third edition of the Realish Racing Touring Car Championship, the 2017 Grand Endurance Auto Racing Series, the Nihon Tour Classic and the Formula R2000 Festival in 2017, taking a clean sweep of both GEARS and the Nihon Tour.

Would you like tea? In lieu of a Unified Petroleum livery, UPA acquires Twinings as title sponsor for the RRTCC3. This will mean that the hardworking personnel at Unified Petroleum will never go without a cup of tea. That's how sponsors work, right?
They have nowhere to go but up. Oh yeah, the GEARS Renault R.S.01s powered by Unified Petroleum arrive on the scene. We're going to decimate the opposition, and not because we created and tested the car for this season... *ahem*
We kunnen nergens anders heen dan omhoog! It's time for the deadly duo to channel their inner Verstappens as they tackle De Nederlandse Regen Meester Trofee! Don't forget your umbrella, coat and life raft, because this is going to get very moist...
Here at Unified Petroleum, we feel death is inevitable. Therefore our sole purpose as an oil exporter is to completely destroy the environment as quickly as possible. To show our dedication to the cause, we'll be partnering with Pemex and Chevrolet for the CCFI.
