Australian Supertrucks racing on biodiesel
Ironically, National Supertruck champion Bob Middleton was quoted by the ABC Rural as saying that the clouds of black smoke can be an attraction for the public when you can't see what's happening, "You've got five or six of them spinning around in a black cloud and then all of a sudden five of them will emerge in all different angles."
Analysis: I love motorsport, and there's something quite special about the momentum a five tonne truck has when its hurtling around a track at 160 km/h, but the diesel smoke generated really is appalling. Using biodiesel to cut the clouds and embrace a renewable alternative is the right way forward and I'd like to see the Australian Supertruck competition move to B100 permanently.
