IndyCars are running as fast as ever. It's what they're running on that's different. In a country that still loves its gas guzzlers, Indy drivers are out to send a message by going green.
It is said that IndyCar Starts Racing Its Cars by Burning Ethanol. If we go to the race know we can smell popcorn rather than fuel in air.
Jeff Simmons driver of the Indy car said that the fuel smells sweet and it is made of corn which is grown in US -Midwest, not the Middle East.
Indycar has used ethanol for the first time on Saturday night's race at Homestead-Miami Speedway and they informed that would be continued for the whole year too.
"It's going to reduce harmful tail pipe emissions, its going to reduce CO2, and those are great benefits," says Reece Nanfito, a spokesperson for the Ethanol Promotion Information Council.
Using Ethanol does not have any effects more over helpful to reduce harmful tail pipe emissions in passenger cars by nearly 30 percent.
If this fuel is helpful for the environment. Lets hope even we get for our cars and two wheelers too.
