Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 TradePriceCars.com to become FIRST carbon neutral BTCC team
Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 TradePriceCars.com has today (13 May) announced that it has joined forces with Racing Carbon Neutral for the 2022 season in a move that will make it the first carbon neutral team in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
The partnership will see the Suffolk-based outfit utilise the newly-launched Racing Carbon Neutral platform to offset the carbon emissions generated by its entry into Britain’s premier racing series as it seeks to take a lead in helping to drive motorsport in the UK towards a more sustainable future.
Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 TradePriceCars.com’s move to offset carbon emissions is in addition to a raft of new initiatives being introduced by the BTCC this season.
These include the introduction of new hybrid technology for the first time and a switch to a new, more sustainable fuel comprising 15% second-generation ethanol content and 5% renewable hydrocarbons.
“As a team competing at the highest level of motorsport in the UK, we are aware that we have the opportunity to take a lead when it comes to doing our part to meet the environmental concerns that we all share,” Team Owner Justina Williams said.
“If we want motorsport to continue in the longer term, we need to find viable solutions to those concerns, and for us as a team, offsetting our carbon emissions is a way in which we can do something immediately whilst work continues in the automotive industry on ways to reduce our global footprint.
“We are proud to show our commitment towards reducing greenhouse gases, and hope that our fellow competitors will follow suit so we can all work together to reduce the environmental impact of our sport as much as possible.”
