Why Alternative Energy?

Diesel and petrol is a finite resource, and sooner or later, we’re going to run out. It’s time to think about “plan B” TODAY.

There are many, many other reasons cited as incentives for moving away from fossil fuels, including but not limited to:

  1. Energy self-sufficiency and security
  2. Controlling CO2 emissions
  3. Reducing localised pollution and particulates

But you also have to be careful about the source of your electricity or fuel. If your fuel is made from palm oil or sugar cane, has a huge tract of rainforest been chopped down for the plantation? If so, the chances are that it would have been more useful as a carbon sink. And if an electric-powered vehicle is charged using electricity from a fossil-fuelled power station, it’s not much of an improvement over an internal combustion engine. Luckily, there are an increasing number of power stations that generate renewable energy. The power plant closest to Santa Pod Raceway for example, is wind-powered.

Alternative Energy Racing is the future of motorsport and the future of personal transport, and we want to show you that being “green” is no barrier to having fun and going fast!
