Singapore Grand Prix goes green!

For all you champions of the earth, there is some green at the end of the fuel hose.
The one sport most condemned for its gas-guzzling ways is taking some serious steps to reduce its carbon footprint. And Singapore has been one of the first to implement it.
The use of renewable energy resources like sun, wind, water, geo-thermal, tidal and osmosis is being used to bring down the whopping figure of 500-600 mega watts of power!
Yes, it doesn’t change the number of liters consumed, approximately 75 liters for every 100 kms. If every race track is approximately 300 kms and there are 10 tracks, the math is simple but the number more than just a little disturbing!
But I believe they are revving in the right direction!
