Classic cars are now also gearing up for the future. Because of this, had Leopold Prince of Bavaria as the first racing driver in the world the chance to take part Bio-fuel driven historic racing car. The motorsport scene is making history again and, as it has been for more than 100 years, acts as a test field for everyday life. The bio-fueled oldtimer BMW 3.0 CSL from 1972 was made by the two BMW Formula 1 employees Leopold Fischer and Hans Weitgasser prepared and recently started at Hockenheim-Ring as part of the Bosch Hockenheim historic. The old-timer, powered by bio-fuel from the laboratory, jumped on immediately under the supervision of the "racing pope" Holger Spiess and caused astonishing things during the journey 22 percent less CO₂ and up to 50 percent less particulate matter.

Start for the Tech Open

Immediately after a warm-up session and a final check in the pits, the pilot project for a CO₂-free future for the internal combustion engine began. The performance was amazing too because it came neither to a loss of performance nor to dropouts. Everything went according to plan and the test was a complete success from RBAC - Royal Bobsleigh Automobile Club and its partners. After just four laps, Leopold Prinz von Bayern achieved the ninth fastest time on the 4 km long course (with 50 participants). The prince was enthusiastic and is looking forward to a CO₂-free time for cultural goods on the move.

The owner and managing director of RBAC, Axel Watter, was more than satisfied with the results. But there is still a lot of work ahead of us over the winter months, added Watter. In Salzburg, the BMW 3.0 CSL will be at s mountain racing to be further developed by Leopold Fischer and Harti Weitgasser. In addition, test bench tests with the "Batmobile" (nickname for the legendary racing car) are to be carried out so that the 360 ​​hp engine can continue to run CO₂ free.

E-fuels are the future

E-fuels are essential for a CO₂-free future and they are a synthetic fuel. Without the e-fuels, the goal of RBAC cannot be achieved, because E-mobility and hydrogen are out of the question for classic cars, as the conversion would ruin the cultural heritage. Another crucial point is the so-called "footprint". While manufacturing an internal combustion engine generates around 5 tons of CO₂, building an electric motor produces around 10 tons of CO₂. With 1,3 million combustion engines, the “footprint” is already massive, so cars should be operated with an environmentally friendly fuel for as long as possible. In order to achieve a balanced balance with an e-car, the e-car must first have 200.000 km without changing the battery be driven.
