With the Racing Manager of Panta Racing Fuel, manufacturer of high-performance gasoline for competitions, we talked about the new ecological propellants, concrete alternatives to electric
January 31, 2023
Luke Monicaa passionate motorcyclist, has been in the world of both car and motorcycle racing for years, and is the Racing Manager of Panta Racing Fuelthe MOL Group company that develops and produces fuels that meet the requirements of national and international automobile and motorcycle federations, as well as the manufacturers and teams that compete in the major world championships.
in the Superbike field Panta is the sole supplier of the Supersport and Supersport 300 categories, but its products are also used by numerous teams in the top class. Still with regard to motorcycle competitions, Panta is the sole supplier of some categories of various national championships including the BSB and the CIV, as well as the Red Bull Rookies Cup, the National Trophy and others. Panta also works closely with the major car and motorcycle manufacturersdeveloping petrol for them capable of optimizing the performance of their engines.
Luca also explained to us how supplies are made to the various championships and teams, with containers traveling by ship or by plane, headed all over the world.
But perhaps the most interesting topic concerned the future of fuels. The Panta Fuel laboratories, but not only, have been working for years on the creation of ecological “gasolines”, and at the moment the company has a 40 percent ecological propellant, that is to say that 40 percent does not exploit hydrocarbons, but derives from wood waste. Taking a look at his company’s competitors, Luca says that others already have 100 percent ecological fuels, while major car companies (including Porsche) are working on hydrogen-derived gasoline and therefore 100 percent ecological. hundred. All very valid alternatives to an electric one which appears rather problematic.
