Achieving sustainability is crucial to securing the future of motor racing. The British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) is working with Truck Sport UK, and the British Automobile Racing Club, to develop strategies and actions that help ensure they meet their commitments to reducing carbon emissions and creating a positive impact on the world.

As part of this initiative, the BTRC is working in partnership with Silvey Fleet and BWOC to reduce CO2 emissions by using Renewable Diesel (HVO) for all its race events. Silvey Fleet is a leading multi fleet fuel card and fleet management solutions provider whilst BWOC, one of the UK’s largest fuel suppliers, specialises in bulk supply of liquid fuel products. Together, they will be supplying Renewable Diesel (HVO) for racing events throughout 2024. 

Transitioning to sustainable fuel sources 

The fuel industry is undergoing a major shift as it transitions to new, more sustainable energy sources. Both Silvey Fleet and BWOC are playing their part in this evolution by offering innovative new products and services that can help customers reduce CO2 emissions, including Renewable Diesel (HVO), EV charging and carbon offsetting. 

Renewable Diesel (HVO)

Made from 100% renewable and sustainable feedstocks, Renewable Diesel (HVO) can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%. It is a safe and easy alternative that can be used in place of conventional diesel without having to make any engine modifications and many vehicle manufacturers have approved it for usage in their engines1.

Renewable Diesel (HVO) is available on several Silvey Fleet fuel card networks, providing customers with easy access to this greener fuel alternative. 

BWOC offers customers nationwide bulk supply of Renewable Diesel (HVO). With access to multiple supply points nationwide, the company offers security of supply with sustainability ensured through the ISCC-EU certification scheme.

“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,” says Miriam James, Managing Director of Silvey Fleet. “It is a prime example of how companies can collaborate and take action to decarbonise and contribute towards a more sustainable future.” 

“We want to help customers decarbonise by offering innovative fuel solutions that can help reduce their CO2 emissions,” explains Amy Jones, Managing Director of BWOC. “Supplying Renewable Diesel (HVO) to the British Truck Racing Championship will help ensure the organisation meets its commitment to reducing carbon emissions and enhance the positive impact racing can have on the world.”
