Crossing the Finish Line

Smoking rubber tires and burning fuels...can a racecar ever really be green? Quite possibly given the brilliant work from the University of Warwick (England). They have managed to build a Formula3 car run on veges and chocolate bars.

The seat is made from hemp and recycled plastic, the steering wheel from carrots, some of the frame from potato starch, and the engine uses apples and cocoa butter for fuel. Is it good enough to eat? Find out here.
