Green Racing: Why Should You Care?

About this product:

Automakers spent a good deal of effort at this year’s auto shows focusing on electrics, plug-in hybrids and a range of alt-technology hopefuls. Interesting future-view sort of stuff. Here in the present tense, there is a quiet reality that warrants the focus of the performance aftermarket: the great majority of vehicles that are on the road today, and those we will be buying in the coming 5, 10 or even 15 years, will involve an internal combustion engine and a consumer looking for efficiency without sacrificing performance.

Making Green Pay

About this product:

Troy Lee of Troy Lee Designs uses water-based paints to create hip motorcycle helmets. He uses recycled paper and rubber products. But Troy Lee wants to push the envelope more on greenness, just as he does with his designs. Both are good for business, he says. “SEMA is all about being cool,” says Lee. “Being green will be a competitive edge.”
