Silvey Fleet And BWOC Sole Suppliers Of Renewable Diesel (HVO) For The British Truck Racing Championship Throughout 2024

Silvey Fleet and BWOC are delighted to have been appointed as sustainability partners of the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) 2024. The BTRC is one of the biggest motorsport categories in the UK, with machines weighing in at more than five tonnes and producing in excess of 1000 bhp. Silvey Fleet and BWOC will be sole suppliers of the Renewable Diesel (HVO) used to fuel these heavyweight behemoths at race events throughout the season in both the UK and France.

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% net. It is also 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.
