The Duke of Richmond will be powered by a different type of fuel this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, after filling up his trusty motorbike with Zero’s new synthetic petrol, developed by former Formula One technical director Paddy Lowe.
The Duke uses his motorbike to travel many miles around the grounds during the four-day weekend, and this year he is making history by using a new fuel, Zero® Syn95™, which is a first prototype of a sustainable and fossil-free equivalent of the everyday 95 RON petrol found on UK forecourts.
The Duke of Richmond said:
“The Festival of Speed is a celebration of the past, present and future of motoring and as the world moves towards a fully sustainable future, things are changing. We have had some interesting emerging power sources at Goodwood – such as electric and hydrogen – and I am very excited about the potential of Zero’s synthetic, fossil-free fuels.”
