The FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) is without a doubt one of the most demanding competitions in the world of motorsports. And also one of the most spectacular! This legendary competition takes in 11 different countries, from Monte-Carlo to Japan. As the official fuel, TotalEnergies is a major player in this competition.
TotalEnergies, official fuel supplier for the WRC
Chosen as the official fuel supplier for the WRC until the end of 2021, we harnessed all our expert capabilities to develop EXCELLIUM RALLY, a high-quality fuel designed to withstand various weather conditions. It is also more environmentally-friendly, because it includes 10% second-generation bioethanol - produced from waste wood or straw, as well as stalks, leaves or non-editable parts from fruit and vegetables.
Each season, we produce 250,000 to 300,000 litres of this fuel, which is packaged in drums then shipped to the rally sites. On-site, a dozen people set up 2 to 3 mobile stations to offer optimum refuelling conditions for competitors throughout the race, whatever the category – WRC, WRC2, WRC3, Junior WRC - in line with the specific features of each event.
