Checkered Flag For Biobutanol Racer

By Larry E. Hall

Chris Dyson's Biobutanol Racer

Chris Dyson thrilled spectators with a narrow victory at the ALMS Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge last Sunday. It was the first win for Dyson Racing this season and the first win for an ALMS car fueled with biobutanol.

Racing doesn�"t get much better than last weekend�"s American Le Mans Series (ALMS) at the 2.25 mile Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, located just outside the village of Lexington, OH. Chris Dyson won the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge for Dyson Racing by a whisker (0.506 seconds), besting PatrĂ³n Highcroft Racing�"s Simon Pagenaud.

The race took on additional significance for green car fans: it was the first win using biobutanol fuel.

Dyson Racing announced last year that it would fuel one of their production-derived 2.0-liter turbocharged MZR-R-powered Lola coupe racecars with a fuel combining both ethanol and biobutanol�a biofuel that BP is developing with its partner DuPont.
