Hot lap with Tommy Byrne at Mid-Ohio



Here's me (D) in an Acura TSX with Tommy Byrne, the greatest race car driver you never heard of. In front of us? That's J, holding him off!

Fuel efficiency - it's on



The article itself discusses research into using the up-and-down motion of shock absorbers to create electrical energy.

The line that most excites me is when the suggestion is made that "In the quest for renewable, sustainable energy for transport, no moving part will escape the gaze of scientists."

And it makes sense, doesn't it? If there is a component or part that, in the normal activity of doing what it does, it can also do something else, namely contribute to generating energy, we're going to find it, and put it to work.
