COP26: How motorsport can play a role in cleaner mobility

Part of the challenge of battery technology is to extract as much energy and power from a certain size of battery cell as possible – in the case of most road cars, lithium-ion. “What’s really exciting with the two-seater racecar technology is we can show that it exists. “We have a one-and-a-half-hour race, we have 1,000-horsepower cars, we are the pinnacle of motorsport. Synthetic fuels use carbon captured from the air, farm waste or biomass. But critics say the carbon produced in making synthetic fuels could offset the benefit. They say the fuel will see a reduction of CO₂ emissions by 65% in the cars.
