Silvey Fleet partners with the BTRC to reduce carbon emissions in truck racing

Silvey Fleet and BWOC are delighted to have been appointed as sustainability partners of the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) 2024.

The BTRC season kicked off at Brands Hatch over the recent bank holiday weekend for what is one of the biggest motorsport categories in the UK, with machines weighing in at more than five tonnes and producing in excess of 1000bhp. Silvey Fleet and BWOC are the sole suppliers of the Renewable Diesel (HVO) used to fuel these heavyweight behemoths at all race events, both in the UK and France, throughout 2024.

Fuelling the future through sustainable sources

Improving sustainability is key to securing the future of motor racing, and using new, more sustainable energy sources to fuel vehicles will play a significant role in helping organisers achieve this crucial goal.

Silvey Fleet and BWOC will together be helping the BTRC significantly reduce CO2 emissions over the course of the 2024 season through the use of Renewable Diesel (HVO). Made from 100% renewable and sustainable feedstocks, it can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%. It is also a safe and easy alternative that can be used in place of conventional diesel without having to make any engine modifications1.

Stuart Oliver, Promotor/Director of BTRC said; “We are delighted to have Silvey Fleet and BWOC as sustainability partners for our 2024 season. The BTRC, is aligned with Truck Sport UK and the British Automobile Racing Club in its commitment to reducing carbon emissions from racing events. Using Renewable Diesel (HVO) at our events will significantly reduce carbon emissions, helping us work towards achieving this goal.”

Miriam James, Managing Director of Silvey Fleet said; “Partnering with the BTRC is an exciting opportunity for Silvey Fleet, allowing us to demonstrate our commitment to offering customers sustainable solutions, and play our part in shaping the energy transition. It is a prime example of how companies can collaborate and take action to decarbonise and contribute towards a more sustainable future.”
