The 2024 Goodwood Revival will be the first historic motorsport event to mandate the use of synthetic fuels across all races.
Every vehicle competing at next year’s Revival, from 6-8 September, must use fuels made from at least 70% sustainable content, in line with the FIA’s current definition of a sustainable fuel.
The ‘drop-in’ fuel does not require any engine modifications, even to pre-war machinery. It does not affect performance, either.
At the 2023 Goodwood Revival, a 30-strong grid of pre-1966 Porsche 911s took part in the first race at the West Sussex circuit to be powered exclusively by synthetic fuels.
Tom Kristensen, Jenson Button and Mark Webber were among the star drivers that competed in the 30-minute contest.
“What’s so exciting about these fuels is that they can guarantee the future of historic racing, enabling us to enjoy combustion engine cars for years to come,” said Jenson Button, 2009 Formula One drivers’ champion.
