Formula 1

Some great news released yesterday for Earth Day is that Formula 1 racing plans to have their vehicles switched over to hybrids by 2013. The plan is set to start in 2009, when racing cars will begin being fitted with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), and is a hybrid system, but not like the one in your Prius. It essentially uses the energy that is created in a much faster way than a typical hybrid would. So if you’re a big Formula 1 fan, you can rest assured your favourite driver will be eco-friendly in the next few years.
