McLaren receive FIA award for environmental excellence

Feb 15 2013, 6:18am CST | by

Woking (Surrey), Feb 15 (IANS) McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team has become first motor sport stakeholder in the world to receive the FIA Institute's Environmental Award.

Woking (Surrey), Feb 15 — McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team has become first motor sport stakeholder in the world to receive the FIA Institute's Environmental Award.

The award is part of a broader initiative between the FIA, the world body of motorsports, and the FIA Institute aimed at evaluating and reducing the environmental impact of motor sport.

It is also the highest level attainable within the FIA Institute Sustainability Programme, which helps motor sport stakeholders to measure, improve and be recognised for their environmental performance.

Organisations that sign up are rated against three levels of environmental performance, so measuring their achievement and providing a benchmark against which to improve.

Shortly after the scheme was announced, in June 2012, McLaren applied for accreditation and underwent a series of stringent assessments set out by FIA Institute environmental experts. The F1 team achieved the highest level through demonstrating a commitment to continual improvement and impressive environmental awareness throughout the entire organisation.

FIA president Jean Todt said: "McLaren's award is an important step in the recognition by motor sport of the social responsibility our community must acknowledge if our championships are to remain in tune with the key environmental debates we are all a part of. The FIA and the FIA Institute are researching the environmental impact of motor sports across all our world championships."

Advice/recommendation needed

Oct 10 2014 8:36pm CDT | Source: Bike Forums

Hi guys, I'm new to this and I'm hoping to get some advice on which bicycle to get. I wish to ride my bicycle to work on a daily basis. It needs to be a folding bike to due limited space in the office. Also, I plan to bring it with me into the train if the weather goes bad. The distance between my home and office is around 10 km and there probably isn't many hills to climb along the way. However, I would like enough gear options should I decide to bri ...

Flashlight Holder Mount For Bicycle Handlebars

Oct 5 2014 6:49pm CDT | Source: Bike Forums

It seems like a lot of the flashlight mounts for bicycle handlebars are built cheap and flimsy. Is there a good brand mount that stays still and doesn't wobble or bounce when you ride? I once had a Two-Fish and it was basically crap. How about a mount that actually stays put when you go over a bump? A lot of the ones online have velcro or other straps and rubberized parts. That's too loose and just won't hold up well. If you ride for a while or go over ...

stumped!

Oct 4 2014 2:02pm CDT | Source: Corvette Forum

I have a 1993 lt1 Corvette. Have had some issues with a/c not working. Was serviced. I found the upper two wire switch loose and thought the Freon leaked out as to why it was not working and also replaced switch as the plastic threads were stripped. I assumed system was empty so I installed Freon without checking pressures. When I installed Freon it was only 54 degrees outside, so I jumped the two wires to ...
