Part-vegetable sustainable racing car runs on chocolate and wine waste

The world's first “sustainable” racing car will take to the tracks at Brands Hatch this October.

Low-carbon building services design consultants G K Salter & Associates are joining forces with Aaron Steele to run the F3 racing car, which is partly made from carrots and runs on chocolate and stale wine.

The car, which was developed by Warwick University, includes bodywork made from recycled rubbish and features a steering wheel composed of waste from juiced carrots.

The 230bhp engine is made from recycled aluminium that runs on biofuel sourced from a number of waste streams, including chocolate and fermented wine dregs.
