The American Le Mans Series yesterday announced that Intersport Racing has decided to run their car on cellulosic ethanol for the 2008 season. They are the third team to announce plans to run on the new biofuel and the first to run it in a prototype. Intersport will be running an AER-powered Lola B06/10 in the LMP1 class this year competing head-on with the diesel-powered Audi R10s. The other teams running on the new fuel are the factory Corvette C6Rs in GT1 and the GT2 class Aston Martin Vantage of Drayson Barwell Motorsport . The E85-powered cars will be allowed to run with 105L of fuel on board rather than the 90L carried by the E10-fueled racers.
