Eco-racing


My clever first cousin once removed is part of a team from Cambridge University designing an eco-friendly racing car. She has invented a gate in the engine, preventing the petrol from sloshing over to one side while the car screeches around corners and disabling the pump. (As you may gather from this explanation, I am no mechanic.) The car will be in a race at Silverstone and amongst the competition will be another Cambridge designed car which is solar-powered. My cousin is hoping there will be no sun that day.

Hm, would have thought F1 had this sorted already - or it may be a v. clever wheeze to help with fuel consumption. Either way, clever Cambridge Scientists are what makes the world go round ( with a bit of help from money, which is noticeably lacking at the moment)

Good luck to your cousin and may the sun not shine on her [that day!]
