The very first results in sustainable motorsports were achieved in 2007 when GUTTS convinced the governing body in the Netherlands to allow the use of E85 in rallying, opening the way to a wider allowance of renewable fuels. The reason for even attempting this was stubbornness; after 3 years working on sustainable mobility at the World Wild Life Fund, rally driver and GUTTS founder, Edward Goossens just could not see any other way to combine his two passions.
After getting the fuel allowed, GUTTS took a small role in supplying E85 to teams and drivers, developed and delivered a methanol fuel and in 2010 supplied GEM Fuel (a ternary blend of Gasoline Ethanol and Methanol) in the Netherlands. The break through moment came after the approval of the FIA to allow GEM Fuel to be used in the WRC.
Since 2013 GUTTS has produced and sold over 250.000L of Renewable Race Fuel, worked with key industry partners in the OEM, Science and Renewable Fuel Industry, celebrated over 500 stage- or race wins and reduced approximately 300.000kg of CO2.
As a fuel supplier, GUTTS provides excellent service to all of its clients in various race series. In short our mission is:
- to design, develop and deliver renewable race fuels and be part of motorsports in tomorrow’s world
- provide both ASN’s, Organizers and teams with a ‘Plug & Play’ answer to the sustainability and safety demands of this time
