By adopting a 100% renewable fuel for its F4s from 2022, the FFSA, through its Academy, is confirming its commitment to the ecological transition. The French Championship will thus become the very first single-seater competition in the world to use a biofuel, from Nogaro this weekend and for the entire season.
With a view to leading French motor sport towards carbon neutrality by 2050, the FFSA and its federal training centre in Le Mans are breaking new ground thanks to a technical and commercial agreement with Repsol.
“The biofuel formula used by the French F4 allows a saving of more than 70% in greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuels.”
The agreement provides for the use of 30,000 litres of biofuel developed and refined at Repsol’s technological laboratory in Móstoles (Madrid), Spain. This biofuel, which is derived from waste recycling, meets the sustainability criteria established in the European Renewable Energy Directive (RED), as well as the parameters of the “Advanced Sustainable Fuel” specification established by the International Automobile Federation (FIA). A biofuel formulated to save more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuels.
