MotoGP™ takes a huge stride towards sustainability

A number of key steps are being taken in order to achieve the World Championship's primary green goal

Caring for the environment is as important as it ever has been at the moment, and its an issue that the MotoGP™ World Championship is taking very seriously. So much so that a move towards a more sustainable future plays a major part in shaping the roadmap, as highly-respected Spanish economy and business newspaper Expansión details.

In fact, if we go back a while, Dorna already agreed with Scania that all trucks should use HVO (hydrobiodiesel) to reduce their CO2 emissions. Plus, a conscious effort has been made over recent years to reduce plastic waste as much as possible.

However, the steps taken to move towards a greener future did not end there. With regards to the action on track, the biggest step forwards was the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup, the fully-electric motorcycle Championship, launched in 2019. The engines of this class are currently manufactured by Energica, a company that is dedicated exclusively to the electric motorcycle market.

However, from 2023, Ducati will become part of this project by taking on the role of official supplier. The Italian factory will be the first major brand in the motorcycling sector to enter the all-electric World Cup, with preparations already having begun after Ducati Test Rider Michele Pirro was pictured lapping the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on their new electric machine.

MotoGP™'s quest to become as eco-friendly as possible has recently turned to our premier class. A more sustainable future has now been secured thanks to the recent announcement that from 2024, a sustainable fuel will be introduced. Then, by 2027, the fuel is confirmed to be 100% sustainable.
