MI Releases New Methanol Rally Racing Video

Methanol Rally Racing CaptureThe Methanol Institute has released a new video on Methanol Rally Racing on the MethanolFuels.org website (http://methanolfuels.wpengine.com/media/videos/).

The video highlights the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Junior World Rally Championship (WRC).  The Junior World Rally Championship, sponsored in part by MI, MI member Methanex and others, including GUTTS, runs on GEM (Gasoline, Ethanol, Methanol) fuel.

GEM fuel, a blend of 37 percent gasoline, 21 percent bioethanol and 42 percent renewable methanol is loved by engines due to its 113 octane rating.  Last year, the Junior WRC used over 20,000 liters of GEM fuel which reduced carbon dioxide greenhouse gas emissions by almost 25,000 kilograms.

The WRC is the second most popular form of motorsport in the world after Formula 1.  It attracts a television audience of 600 million viewers and an additional 3 million live spectators.  The video is also available at the MI YouTube page here.
