Inside Revolution: Sustainable fuel grant for student racers

Tuesday 25 April 2023

Revolution is available online, as a PDF download and on the Revolution app (for both iOS and Android devices). 

Over a third of the teams competing in the 2023 Formula Student Championship have opted to use a sustainable fuel choice which is supported by a grant from Motorsport UK.

The sustainable fuel, manufactured by Coryton, offers an 80 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for the combustion vehicles, when compared to fossil fuel-based equivalents, without sacrificing performance. This move brings the competition in line with Motorsport UK’s objectives to achieve greater sustainability across all motorsport series. The sustainable fuels are second generation biofuels, made from agricultural, forestry and food processing waste. The carbon in the fuels is effectively recycled from the atmosphere, rather than additional CO2 being released from fossil fuels.
