Getting the green light

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A UK-based research consortium from the Universities of Ulster and Warwick is building an eco-friendly Formula 3 racing car. Project founders Warwick Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre, UK, intend to prove to industry that it is possible to build a competitive racing car using environmentally sustainable components. This research is timely considering the recent problems in Formula 1 (F1) stemming from the high costs of running competitive motor racing teams, and doubts in sponsors' minds over the commercial value of involvement. The team has been building an 'organic' car. One of the goals is to save fuel by using composite materials to reduce weight.
