As an eco designer it won’t come as a surprise that I'm no petrol head motoring journalist but I have had the chance to drive a number of pure electric cars over the years - many with varying degrees of success and just a little anxiety.
Cycles Maximus set out to build a high capacity tricycle that provides a practical, environmentally friendly solution to your local transport needs. Their cargo trikes and pedicabs are used all over the world and customers include Royal Mail.
Hilton Brighton Metropole are opening their doors and fluffing up their pillows for the Eco-Rally guest drivers. The VIPs will have time to relax in the spa, laze by the indoor pool, get a massage, dine à la carte and sleep in luxury before the drive back to London.
Roger Saul, creator of Mulberry, now turned eco-champion with his organic spelt brand Sharpham Park. Roger and Kevin McCloud will go head to head to see who can get from Brighton to London with most charge left in their THINK City Racing cars. As a guest challenger, they'll be joined by BBC Radio 4 presenter, Peter Curran. Roger Saul once recorded the fastest time of the day at the Brighton Speed Trials in his 1934 Alfa Romeo P3, but has reluctantly given up car racing as it conflicts with his eco credentials.
The Bridgestone Eco-Rally drivers will be fuelled by a variety of locally-grown products by Sharpham Park. Roger Saul's 300 acre organic estate near Glastonbury in Somerset. They pride themselves on using exemplary sustainable and organic farming techniques to grow and mill spelt, an ancient cousin of wheat with many health, taste and nutritional benefits.
Revolve are excited to announce Bridgestone as the headline sponsor for this year’s Brighton to London Eco-Rally. As the sole supplier of tyres to F1, the world's largest tyre manufacturer is bringing well-known F1 names to the event.
