I crew on a SCCA ProRally team.  We currently run biodiesel in both the race car and tow vehicle.  A 2000 VW Golf TDI and a 1999 Ford E450 Powerstroke, respectively.  Results have been satisfactory.  We won the SCCA ProRally national championship in 2002 against a field of quick gas powered cars.  We had hoped that winning the national championship with a diesel powered car, running a renewable fuel, would have brought more support ($$$) from sponsors, but nothing major has materialized yet.  See <http://rallyvw.com/> for some pics of the current championship winning car.  Feel free to email the team from the webpage if you have any sponsorship leads, info, etc.
