Congratultions to Jonny Reid for his win in the Taupo A1GP sprint race on Sunday.
He also managed to finish fourth in the feature race which gives the NZ team the series lead.
What was also a world first is that all of the teams competing took to the track with 30% biofuel in their tanks.
As reported by The Herald:
A1GP’s new fuel, an ethanol-based product called Hiperflo E30, is sourced from sugar beet in Europe and produced specifically for A1GP.
Developed in partnership with Zytek, the engine maker for the series, the fuel will reduce CO2 emissions by 21 per cent per car based on a wheel-to-wheel calculation. The introduction of E30 was delayed from the start of the season, making Taupo the first A1GP event powered by biofuel.
