I would like to see the Pescarolo's back in a podium and taking a a win, they sponsor the best racing simulation game in the world, Gran Turismo. Peugeot FTW though. Can't wait to see #'s 1, 2, and 3, vs 7, 8, and 9 race each other next year.
The 908 HDi Hybrid uses a KERS system and a multi-cell battery.

Nothing particulary "green" about this really - just a sensible racing accessory!
