Increasing numbers of cars leads not only to more congestion but when cars go slow or stand still so pollution increases. There is also the noise factor from exhausts. Recently there have been some moves towards cleaner, more sustainable and quieter vehicle technology. At Sanlitun in Beijing, for example electric vehicle charging posts were demonstrated successfully. However, the image of electric cars can be problems of battery life and car power. These images are now being dispelled, not only here in Beijing but in several cities worldwide.
Last October, Beijing was the first city to host a new generation of motor racing. Formula 'E' incorporates many of the ideas and strategies of Formula One, except that the cars represented a new technology in racing car engineering - they were electric powered. The race was based around a day of fun and activities centered on the Olympic Green which will be the location again this October for the second series. Like F1 it moves around a series of cities over several months, but once again, Beijing marks the starting grid for the race.
In today's feature Bruce is talking with May Tang, COO (Chief Operating Officer) of Enova Holdings, the exclusive regional partner for China in promoting this exciting racing event - an event not simply aimed at racing enthusiasts but also providing a great family day set amidst iconic structures such as the Bird's Nest.
