Hilliard, Ohio – (February 8, 2007 – AgNewsWire) The American Le Mans Series continues its tradition of excellence and leading edge technology with its decision to use ethanol-enriched fuel for the 2007 racing season.
The organization has partnered with the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC) to make E10, “the official ethanol-enriched fuel” of the series.
Scott Atherton, President and CEO of the American Le Mans Series, considers this a perfect fit for the platform that is the American Le Mans Series.
“The cars that are competing in the American Le Mans series have direct links back to their manufacturers and in many cases directly back to the showroom,” said Atherton. “So when you look at the practical application of ethanol in this form, this really has a direct link to the consumer.”
