DAY 1: Coryton Advanced Fuels debuts Sustain Racing fuels for motorsport use
Coryton Advanced Fuels
Following years of research and development work, Coryton Advanced Fuels has launched Sustain Racing, a new sustainable fuel range dedicated to the motorsport sector. Unveiled at this year’s Professional MotorSport World Expo, Sustain Racing aims to provide the industry with access to a range of off-the-shelf sustainable fuels and the opportunity to create bespoke blends using Coryton’s expertise.
Offering the potential for significant CO2 emission savings compared to traditional fossil fuels, Sustain Racing products seek to make an impact on the industry’s net zero initiatives and are already proving popular with some major racing players.
Coryton has celebrated several successes in motorsport and its fuels continue to prove their performance for partner Prodrive in races such as Dakar 2022 and the recent FIA World Rally-Raid Championships.
The company uses second-generation biofuel derived from agricultural waste to create the fuels, along with e-fuels created using CO2 captured directly from the atmosphere. Coryton has an advanced and dedicated specialist fuels blending facility in Europe, creating over 4,000 unique blends each year for manufacturers including Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Volvo, Renault and Jaguar Land Rover.
“We’ve worked with the industry for many years and see that sustainable fuel has a huge role to play in the future of motorsports and motoring in general,” said David Richardson, business development director, Coryton. “The ICE engine is going to be here for many years to come so it makes sense to do what we can now to reduce the carbon emissions from those vehicles. With the work we’re doing with teams such as Prodrive and Bremotion, as well as others behind the scenes, and with F1 moving to 100% sustainable fuel from 2026, the world is watching. That’s why it’s vital that sustainable fuels are backed up by expertise and rigorous testing. We need these fuels to demonstrate that they can perform as well – if not better – than fossil fuels.”
Richardson continued, “Our second place in Dakar 2022 showed how there need be no drop in performance with Sustain Racing and we’re going for gold in 2023. If four cars can save 85 tons of carbon by using our fuels, imagine what a whole series run on them could do?”
