Fuel Tests - SuperNats 23

We use a Fuel Testing Laboratory with no Motorsports connection to preserve anonymity.

As many of you know we took fuel samples from competitors at the last two Pro Tour events and submitted them to various lab tests. At SuperNats 23 we took 10 samples, mostly from the winners but in some cases farther back in the field. A sample, mixed by us to the correct ratio was also included for comparison.

All samples tested identical to the mandated fuel/oil required.

As background on the testing used, it is a procedure called Mass Spectrometry – which is the same process that Formula One and MotoGP uses for their tests. This allows the sample to be compared to a known sample to determine conformity to our rules. Note that in addition we have also sent samples of supposedly undetectable additives to the lab who easily detected their use – some of these additives contained banned carcinogens.
