Super GT, the touring car racing series, is set to be the first championship in Asia to run on 100 per cent biofuels after striking an agreement with ETS Racing Fuels.

ETS Racing Fuels, a leading fuel development partner for the racing industry and a brand of HCS Group, has been selected by the GT Association (GTA) to supply its 100 per cent sustainable fuel for all race cars as of 2023 season onwards.

Super GT is the first Asian championship series to introduce a fully renewable gasoline leading the transformation in the motorsports industry towards more sustainability. The fuel contains proprietary renewable components that allow to significantly reduce CO2 emissions while meeting the high performance criteria.

“The motorsport industry is strongly committed to a low carbon future and is putting all its efforts into implementing sustainable fuels,” said Masaaki Bandoh, chairman of the GTA.

“For the Super GT series we have decided to introduce a 100 per cent renewable fuel as one of the key approaches to the environmental sustainability. In such an environment, I am very proud of the good start of the activity in close cooperation with ETS Racing Fuels.”

Hiroki Kawamoto, ETS Racing Fuels manager for Japan, added: “I am very honoured to introduce our cutting-edge fuel technology through the Super GT Championship to the Japanese market. We aim to continuously support the further growth of the entire Japanese racing industry and lead the way in sustainability across Asia in the cooperation with GTA.”
