For the second year in a row, Iogen Corporation of Canada fueled Green Alternative Motorsports’ (GAM) high performance race vehicle with cellulosic ethanol for the 25 Hours of Thunderhill endurance race in Willows, California.
Iogen manufactured and provided 300 gallons of cellulosic ethanol for the GAM LeMans Prototype (LMP3) car #87 for the 25 hour race in which the car finished fourth in a field of 68.
GAM team member and driver Steve Zadig says, “For two years in a row, Iogen has been the only firm actively producing cellulosic ethanol and able to reach into its inventory to provide us with the volume we need – enabling us to ‘go green’ again.”
Formed in 2007, Green Alternative Motorsports developed two LMP3 cars for competition in endurance auto racing, specifically to run on cellulosic ethanol. Last year, GAM ran two vehicles in the field and Iogen provided the required 800 gallons of cellulosic ethanol. One of last year’s cars had the fastest overall lap time, while the other finished second out of a field of 70 vehicles.
