Competitors from the World Rally Championship showed their support for the FIA’s new environmental campaign ‘Make Cars Green’ during Rally Mexico.
The WRC drivers and co-drivers participated in a group photo to endorse the FIA’s campaign and will be supporting it at other events throughout the 2008 season.
Make Cars Green is an international campaign aimed at reducing the impact of motoring on the environment. The campaign encourages environmentally friendly and fuel efficient driver behaviour; the introduction of new technologies to help motorists monitor their environmental impact; the improvement of tyre design to help save energy and the global use of unleaded and sulphur free fuels.
As part of the campaign, the FIA has launched a public policy Declaration which calls on the United Nations to adopt the first ever worldwide target for CO2 emissions in passenger cars.
FIA President Max Mosley said: “It is immensely satisfying that so many competitors in world motorsport are championing the FIA’s campaign to make motoring more sustainable in the future. This support will be a major benefit to our mission to encourage ecologically sound mobility worldwide.”
