Scientists unveil chocolate-fuelled race car

Associated Press, May 6, 2009
LONDON – Scientists unveiled yesterday what they hope will be one of the
world’s Fastest biofuel vehicles, powered by waste from chocolate factories and made
partly From plant fibres.
Its makers hope the racer will go 235 km/h and give manufacturers ideas
about how to build more ecologically friendly vehicles.
The car runs on vegetable oils and chocolate waste that has been turned into
biofuel. The steering wheel is made out of plant-based fibres derived from carrots
and other root vegetables, and the seat is built of flax fibre and soybean oil foam.
The body is also made of plant fibres.
Scientists at the University of Warwick say their car is the fastest to run
on biofuels and also be made from biodegradable materials. It has been built to Formula
3 specifications about the car’s size, weight and performance.
Their claims cannot be independently verified.
They hope it can reach speeds of over 235 km/h when it is tested on a
racetrack in a few weeks time. They have driven it at nearly 100 km/h and are now making
final adjustments to the engine before driving it at top speed.
James Meredith, Warwick’s project manager, said their model shows that it is
possible to build a fast, efficient, environmentally friendly car.
The car, named the “WorldFirst Formula 3 racing car,” will go on display at
several races, including the European Grand Prix and Britain’s Goodwood Festival of
