Why did you choose to offset your season's competition fuel carbon footprint?

Yes I chose to offset, if it's affordable, credible and 100% certified why wouldn't you?

I believe we all have a responsibility to the future of motorsport, to ensure it is sustainable to allow future generations to continue with the sport, we need to be more responsible.


Jim’s recent purchase ensured he worked towards offsetting all three of his vehicles as well as his vehicles involved to and from the event, with a total number of 176 Litres of petrol and diesel usage.


Steve Smith, director of Carbon Positive Motorsport said, "I have known Jim for many years now and I was very pleased when Jim agreed to offset not just his competition 1982 Scirocco, but also his day to day vehicles used to trailer the car to and from the event at Goodwood.


"The total cost of Jim’s offset - positively offsetting 125% of his whole event carbon footprint - was only £32.42."
