The FIA World Motor Sport Council has approved the use of biofuel in karting competitions from this year.
The selected fuel is a 100% renewable product made from second generation bio-based components and synthetic fuel produced by German manufacturer P1 Racing Fuels which has been selected as the official fuel supplier for the FIA Karting Championships, Cups and Trophies from 2023 to 2025.
This decision is set to become reality at the first round of the FIA Karting European OK & Junior Championships in Valencia from March 23-26.
The move to sustainable fuels for karting is in line with the FIAs’ commitment to leading motorsport into a low carbon future to reduce its environmental impact and contribute to a greener planet. The FIA is targeting net zero carbon by 2030.
By 2026, all FIA championships will be required to be powered by 100% sustainable energies – from advanced, sustainable drop-in fuels to battery and hydrogen technologies.
"The move to 100% carbon neutral fuel is a very important step in the evolution of all FIA Karting championships. It ensures alignment with the FIA's overall environmental strategy and allows us to continue racing in a sustainable manner," said CIK-FIA President Akbar Ebrahim. "The introduction of P1 Racing Fuels in 2023 allows us to make concrete progress in this direction, alongside other motor sport disciplines, while retaining the usual running of our competitions and their appeal.”
