Aspen signs an agreement on environmentally friendly fuel with Porsche Sweden and Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia
Aspen has signed an agreement with Porsche Sweden for deliveries of environmentally friendly fuel to the sports car manufacturer's racing series Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia and Porsche Sprint Challenge Scandinavia.
Aspen's agreement with Porsche Sweden is multi-year and concerns deliveries of environmentally friendly fuel to Scandinavia's leading racing series, as well as the Swedish GT car championship, Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia, and the 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport model in the support class Porsche Sprint Challenge Scandinavia. The newly developed high-performance fuel from Aspen has a 33 percent admixture of fossil-free components. The fuel will contribute to both racing series reducing their environmental footprint. The collaboration between Aspen and Porsche Sweden is long-term and the ambition is to gradually increase the fossil-free mixture up to 100 percent in order to further reduce the environmental footprint.
Porsche has always been synonymous with racing. We want to manage that heritage and at the same time contribute to a transition that is long-term sustainable for the environment, says Anders Boqvist, Brand Manager, Porsche Sweden. Introducing environmentally friendly fuel in our Scandinavian racing series is an effective way to reduce our local environmental footprint already next season.
The collaboration makes it possible for us to continue running the popular racing series with as little environmental impact as possible, says Thomas Johansson, Sporting Director, Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia.
We are incredibly proud to be part of this project, says Claes Alin, CEO of Aspen. The collaboration with Porsche Sweden has been going on for a long time, already in 2008 we supplied fuel to the Gothenburg City Race and since 2018 Aspen is the unit fuel for the Carrera Cup. It has contributed to the progress of the current project. Porsche Sweden, Aspen and Porsche Motorsport started discussions at Rudskogen Motorsenter in connection with both championships competing there last September, four months later we have an environmentally friendly fuel with no loss of power that is approved all the way for both the 911 GT3 Cup and 718 Cayman GT4 RS Club sports.
