WMG Sends Race Car You Can Grow To Eden Project

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/wmg_sends_race/

Eco One is an environmentally-friendly race car with a difference: its shell is made from hemp, the tyres made from potatoes and the brake pads made from cashew nut shells. It also runs entirely on bio-fuels and bio-lubricants.

But its green credentials don’t hold it back on the track. Designed originally with a top speed of 125mph, project manager Ben Wood has ‘tweaked’ the original Formula Student engine and claims he can achieve up to 150mph – given a long straight and a tailwind.

Coventry Pharmacy technician Carl Rose decided to use the blood pressure equipment in the Alliance Pharmacy he worked for to test his own blood pressure. He discovered a problem that required specialist medical care from a University of Warwick Medical School researcher Professor Donald Singer.
