MotoGP faces a new era with the use of biofuels

The Motorcycle World Cups in its three categories (MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3) will start using sustainable fuels from 2024 and, in 2027, one hundred


The Motorcycle World Cups in its three categories (MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3) will start using sustainable fuels from 2024 and, in 2027, one hundred percent of the fuel will be of non-fossil origin to start a new era with the “fuel of the future”.

Starting in 2024 and progressing until 2027, the MotoGP World Championship in its three categories will switch to using sustainable fuels, ushering in a new global era of zero-carbon fuels.

In collaboration with the MotoGP manufacturers, new targets have been set to increase sustainability. “By 2024, the fuel of all MotoGP categories will have a minimum of 40% of non-fossil origin. By 2027, the fuel of all MotoGP categories will be 100% non-fossil in origin “, said Dorna, organizer of the World Cup.

MotoGP will be the platform on which these fuels will continue to be developed and tested, with each premier-class manufacturer working with their supplier to develop their own fuel. The development of multiple fuels will ensure that technology and knowledge will reach consumer motorcycles and street pumps in the future.

“This will create an unrivaled selection of viable and sustainable fuels developed by some of the world’s largest energy players and tested by the world’s highest-level prototype two-wheelers. As there is no single owner, the initiative guarantees an unprecedented global impact “, defended Dorna.

Specifically, the Moto2 and Moto3 categories will continue to be supplied by a single fuel supplier and will also introduce a partially sustainable fuel by 2024. Both categories will switch to 100% sustainable fuel in 2027, along with the MotoGP category.

“The FIM, the IRTA, the MSMA, Dorna and all the parties involved are committed to creating a more sustainable sport and future, from the engineering of greater sustainability on the track to the evaluation and reduction of the carbon footprint in each event and each aspect of the sport with innovative solutions, “the statement said.

The CEO of Dorna Sports, Carmelo Ezpeleta, was “very proud” to announce this “incredible new adventure”. “We would like to thank the FIM, MSMA, IRTA, our manufacturers and fuel suppliers for their strong support in this innovative step towards a more sustainable world. Competing together, MotoGP will be a driving force for global change and increasing sustainability, “he said.
