MotoGP plans to use 100% non-fossil fuels by the year 2027
MotoGP has always been the pinnacle of two-wheel racing with power, performance, and innovations constantly leading the way. As the new era of riders begins to enter the stage, another new move has been announced as part of their efforts to save the world - non-fossil fuels.
MotoGP will be working very closely with all the manufacturers for this new goal of sustainability and they have two very specific targets in mind. By 2024, all fuels used in all MotoGP classes (MotoGP, Moto2, and Moto3) will be of a minimum of 40% non-fossil origin. By 2027, that figure will shoot up to 100%.
Every premier class manufacturer will have the freedom to work with their fuel supplier in developing their very own non-fossil fuel used for racing. This is indeed a massive move towards the future of mobility as more experts will be able to test and formulate the best alternative fuel to be used in the MotoGP prototype machinery. As for Moto2 and Moto3, a single fuel provider will be announced as we head closer to 2024.
According to the official release by MotoGP, "These fuels of the future will be able to be used in a standard internal combustion engine and will either be laboratory-created, using components sourced from a carbon capture scheme, or derived from municipal waste or non-food biomass, thereby achieving significant savings in greenhouse gas emissions relative to fossil-derived petrol. In addition, fuel suppliers will progressively introduce the use of renewable energy in the production of their fuel."
