TGR-E United competes in Nürburgring 24 Hours using synthetic fuel
Toyota Gazoo Racing Europe’s volunteer team TGR-E United, ran a GR Supra
GT4 in the 50th edition of the Nürburgring 24 Hours using synthetic fuel as
part of the ‘Race2eFuels’ project.
TGR-E United’s GR Supra GT4 was the first to compete in the Nürburgring
24 Hours using Racing eFuels98, a fossil-free and therefore almost
CO2-neutral synthetic fuel. “We want to show that a CO2-neutral use of
combustion engines is already possible today with the standard highperformance engine we are using in the GR Supra GT4”, says TGR-E United
team manager Jörg Mertin.
The innovative product, called Racing eFuels98, is produced by
Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz GmbH (CAC) using a process developed by
the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. Together, the two organisations operate
Europe’s largest test facility for eFuels. It has a theoretical production
capacity of one million litres per year.

Motorsport UK has commissioned an external environmental consultancy to calculate the
emissions of motorsport in the UK. This baseline assessment will be a comprehensive study
from grassroots to elite activity, allowing everyone to understand where emissions are coming
from and in what proportion. This information will support future work to ensure the sport is
more sustainable and will continue to demonstrate Motorsport UKs UNFCCC commitments.
