Shell and IndyCar have announced a variety of sustainability initiatives designed to help reduce the carbon footprint within IndyCar and power progress toward more sustainable motorsports in North America.
Beginning in 2023, Shell will produce a new race fuel for the NTT IndyCar Series. This new product consists of a blend of second-generation ethanol derived from sugarcane waste and other biofuels to create a fuel that is 100% comprised of feedstocks categorized as renewable under the applicable regulatory frameworks.
The fuel would make the NTT IndyCar Series the first United States-based motorsports series to power racing with 100% renewable race fuel and enable at least 60% greenhouse gas emissions reduction compared to fossil-based gasoline, according to IndyCar.
