Marc Marquez tests Repsol renewable fuel for first time

Marc Marquez, Repsol and Honda have tested the renewable fuel manufactured by Repsol at its Technology Lab, the multi-energy company’s research centre, with the aim of maintaining the same performance on track whilst significantly reducing net CO2 emissions. An advanced biofuel was used, offering the Repsol Honda Team rider the same performance as with traditional fuel. Marquez gave feedback so that the HRC engineers, together with Repsol researchers, can interpret and optimise the performance of this type of renewable fuel. With this experience, Repsol will make the best renewable fuel available to HRC and its riders from 2024 in MotoGP™. During the first half of 2023, Repsol will start up the first advanced biofuels plant in Spain, in Cartagena, which will produce 250,000 tons of renewable fuels from waste. In addition, the Repsol Rally Team, at the most recent Dakar Rally, we used a 50% biofuel.
