Best press release of the month: Chocolate powered racing cars

It sounds almost Python-esque doesn’t it? In fact it is Python-esque.

But there in my in-box lies the release from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council promoting the first “sustainable racing car” in the world.

Apparently it’s “made from woven flax, recycled carbon fibre, recycled resin and carrot pulp for the steering wheel. It runs on biofuel made from chocolate and animal fats and is lubricated with plant oils.”

The car has a top speed of 135 mph, and can achieve 0-60 in 2.5 seconds, so says the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

Here’s a PDF about it… Unusual to say the least! The video about it is here.
