Passivent demonstrates the power of low energy at the 2012 Greenpower electric car racing event at Goodwood.
Passivent has demonstrated the power of low energy by sponsoring three cars in the first regional heat in two key events of the 2012 Greenpower electric car racing season.
Passivent has supported a schools (F24) and a small independent (F24 ) team car at the Greenpower event.
The opening heat at Goodwood Motor Circuit saw both win their respective endurance races, and thus qualify for the National Final.

Neil Rideout, Passivent joint managing director and driving force behind the company’s involvement with Greenpower, said, ’We were really taken aback by winning as all our cars had to fight their way up from a good way down the starting grid- Stealth Aero began in 25th position!
’The success proves that thinking outside the box, applying strong engineering principles and good teamwork will triumph.
’Greenpower and all that it stands for aligns very closely with Passivent’s own ethos of applying innovative engineering principles to develop solutions that reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions’.
