Repsol has begun supplying 100% advanced biofuel to the French Formula 4 championship for use in pre-season testing at the Bugatti circuit in Le Mans and throughout this season.
It will be the first single-seater competition to use 100% renewable fuel in all races of the season.
The agreement contemplates the use of more than 30,000 litres of advanced biofuel developed and manufactured at the Repsol Technology Lab in Mostoles, Madrid, Spain.
The advanced biofuels used in the petroleum composition are made of waste, meeting the sustainability criteria established in the European Renewable Energy Directive (RED), as well as the parameters of the "Advanced Sustainable Fuel" specification set by the International Automobile Federation (FIA).
"With this agreement, Repsol continues its commitment to providing sustainable solutions for high-level motor racing. This way, the company, a pioneer in the manufacture of sustainable fuels in Spain, continues to advance in the decarbonisation of its processes and products to become zero net emissions by 2050," said Clara Rey, director of customer centric at the Repsol Technology Lab.
This new technical and commercial agreement with the French F4 is part of Repsol's global commitment to motorsports as a lever for the technological development of renewable fuels.
The Spanish multi-energy company is also involved in several motorsport sponsorships, among them of the upcoming Grand Prix de Pau New Energies, to be celebrated in the southern French city of Pau in May 2022.
Repsol has been incorporating biofuels into its automotive fuels for more than two decades.
Low-carbon fuels are a sustainable solution for all segments of mobility, presenting themselves as a real alternative to decarbonisation, especially for means of transport such as aviation, maritime and heavy-duty road transport.
