PRODRIVE HUNTER FIRST TO RUN ON SUSTAINABLE FUEL 🇬🇧 🌍

Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX) will be the first major motorsport team to compete with a new generation of advanced sustainable fuels in the FIA World Cup for Cross Country Rallies, when it takes on the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge later this year, followed by the Hail rally and then Dakar in 2022.

Prodrive has developed a new sustainable fuel over the past eight months in conjunction with Coryton Advanced Fuels.  Called Prodrive ECOpower it meets the latest FIA regulations and has been specifically developed to demonstrate the environmental benefits of the latest sustainable fuel technology. The main components are generation 2 biofuel manufactured from agricultural waste and efuels created from carbon capture. As a result, the fuel offers an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to equivalent petrol.

The fuel has been developed using the Hunter’s 3.5l V6 turbo engine on Prodrive’s advanced transient dyno at its headquarters in the UK and the new Prodrive Hunter T1+ has begun an extensive test programme running on the new fuel.

BRX team director, David Richards, said: “I am a great advocate of motorsport taking the lead in developing, proving and promoting new technologies that can help address climate change. The Dakar and the FIA World Cup for Cross Country Rallies are the perfect environment to showcase the benefits of the next generation of sustainable fuels and demonstrate that they can be used in road vehicles to reduce the use of fossil fuels, while still offering the same performance and range.”

While Prodrive ECOpower has been developed for motorsport use, such sustainable fuel can be used as a direct replacement for unleaded petrol and the company is planning to run a near identical fuel in a number of its road vehicles to further prove out the technology.

Coryton CEO, Andrew Willson, said: “Coryton has a long history in blending bespoke fuels for the motorsport industry, and to further support our customers evolving needs, we’ve recently launched Sustain, our new sustainable fuels offering. We knew that partnering with Prodrive would be an ideal way to test our capability in some of the world’s most challenging racing environments, alongside some of the finest engineering expertise in the industry.”

Nani Roma is the first to drive the new Prodrive Hunter T1+ designed to meet the new regulations.  The car runs on larger tyres, with increased suspension travel and a wider track.  37” tyres on 17” rims, replace the current 32” tyres on 16” rims, with suspension travel increased from 280mm to 350mm and the body width increased from 2m to 2.3m to accommodate this.  These changes have necessitated a radical redesign of the car and Prodrive has used it as an opportunity to make further improvements, such as improved visibility.

Roma said: “Even though the car is wider and heavier than the T1, it feels just as agile.  The new suspension and tyres are better in the rougher conditions and the bigger windscreen is a great improvement for visibility. I am really happy about how it felt and I am looking forward to getting more time behind the wheel in the coming weeks in the Middle East.”

The BRX team has completed an initial test programme in the UK and is now heading to the Middle East for more extensive endurance work in the same conditions it will experience in the Dakar.  The team will then compete at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge and Hail Rally before heading to the Dakar.

MOTORSPORT ITALIA 🇮🇹 🌎 ENDS UP A GREAT YEAR AND HOPES FOR A RENEWED 2022 🇮🇹 🌎 💛 ☀️
The structure with its headquarters in Rome – the Motorsport Italia – which Bruno De Pianto and Max Rendina conduct, has achieved a quite positive year in their sports program at the Italian Rally.
With their sports plans almost exclusively dedicated to the local and national scope, and with the participations in the CIR Rally Sparco #2021; with their Czech cars from ŠKODA, under the classic model Fabia R5 Rally2 Evo1, destined to Fabio Andolfi and to the winner of the Junior CIR (2020): Andrea Mazzocchi. All these drivers have raised to the challenge with satisfactory records in all the tournament dates of the Italian Rally; even Andolfi, who has been the central figure; fighting until the end of the sporting competition against «Gia» Basso and Stefano Albertini; both with other constituents of the Czech Republic car brands. However, a more modern version than the one Andolfi used.
Staying at the gates of the title and waiting for the 2022 rematch.
As regards other subject, the Monobrand great acceptance, CIR Junior with the support of the ACI Team Italia and the Italian Car Club, bet for this proposal together with the Motorsport Italia, with whom they have defined a professional work plan to incorporate young values. Therefore, it has been materialized with the Tricolore intervention accompanied by ten Ford Fiesta Rally4 cars -managed in Rome by the MSI- in every Rally. Besides, they are all committed to a common good: to create new expectations, obtaining this way the admission of new racers, such as Giorgio Cogni; the greatest winner of the #2021 CIR Junior in Liburna.
2022 Season: the main news about the competition.
A change of name has occurred: from the CIR Sparco to CIAR Sparco; a significant decision to be named “#2022 Rally Italian Absolute Tournament”. Moreover from the nomenclature, there will also be some changes regarding its structure, and seven races are expected to take place, mostly on asphalt. The “Rally Di Roma Capitale” is one of the confirmed, apart from being a tradition in the last years of the Italian Rally.
It is important to distinguish that the Motorsport Italia has its participation assured in the CIAR Sparco #2022; in both its divisionals: the major class of the Evo Rally2 and the mentioned spectacle class from the CIR Junior counting on the #ACITeamItalia sponsorship.
It is still needed to define the plans as what to refers to a more international level, with the Brazilian Palmeirinha Rally Team continuity, which the experienced Paulo Nobre conducts. In addition, it also lacks to determine the admission of any local or foreign driver as well as the acquisition of a new car to the Rally company; most important in the Italian speciality.
