“We see a lot of series moving towards electric powertrains nowadays, but the majority of the motorsport community is still passionate about combustion engines. This is something that’s strongly ingrained in the DNA of motorsport. If we continue with our wasteful behaviours, it will lead to a point where we’ll have no choice but to use electric engines, unless we are able to turn our petrol-powered motorsport into a more sustainable form. This could save the future of motorsport as we know it, allowing the next generations to have the privilege to enjoy motor racing as much as we do today.”

The goal is to shift the motorsport industry to support one of the most urgent climate projects and biodiverse regions in the world.
• Forest expansion: Supporting the strategic expansion of the Narupa Reserve in Ecuador which will go above and beyond merely compensating the C02 emissions of the race car, but will also protect endangered species.
• 360 Sustainable Practice: Implementing more environmentally conscious day to day business practices that will have impact on the team culture internally.

The car I am racing with in the 2021 ELMS season alongside Diego Menchaca and Richard Bradley is sporting a special livery, featuring the Narupa Reserve, the forest we are protecting together with Algarve Pro Racing.
Situated on the eastern slope of the Andes, the Narupa Reserves located in an area that boasts the highest level of biodiversity on Earth.
Narupa Reserve currently extends over 3420 acres.
species of birds can be found in the area.
Expanding the Narupa Reserve is timely and urgent; recent improvements to road infrastructure in Ecuador have led to increased rates of deforestation in eastern areas of the country. In particular, premontane tropical forests are currently being deforested at an astounding annual rate of 9.8%.
The mission of Green Future Project is to reverse the effects of climate change, and to preserve the planet for both current and future generations. We aim to transform businesses, brands and individuals into active players in this global challenge, by providing simple, effective ways to support targeted reforestation, the protection of the Amazon and a global transition towards clean energy.
