American Le Mans Series moving further into biofuels

Filed under: ,

As the American Le Mans Series prepares for the tenth annual Petite Le Mans at Road Atlanta this weekend organizers released a plan for the series for the remainder of the decade. Aside from the diesel-powered Audi R10s, this year all other cars are running an E10 gasoline/ethanol blend. ALMS President Scott Atherton announced that the series will be adding an E85 option for spark ignition cars next year and a biodiesel fuel for the Audi R10s and the Peugeot 908s which are expected to run at the 12 hours of Sebring in 2008. The diesel fuel that Audis use now is already completely sulfur free.
