Others think the racing industry will change, but the path it will take is uncertain. Chris Aylett, Chief Executive of the Motorsport Industry Association in the UK says there's so many fuel options on the table right now it's hard to pick a clear winner.
"I see many different energy sources being used in the sport over the next decade or more - with no clear 'energy' winners evident as yet. Second generation bio-fuels, including diesel, will certainly be one of the popular choices."
If enough people want sustainable technology in racing then the industry will adapt to meet their needs, he adds. "Commercial motorsport is about entertainment. If the public find entertainment from cars and bikes that are perceived as 'green' then motorsport will respond by creating them for the sponsors or manufacturers involved."
Will green win?
Regardless of the WorldFirst cars' performance in October, the WorldFirst team and others like it have succeeded in bringing sustainable racing technology to the racing industry and the media's attention. 'Racing green' is no longer just a colour; it's a concept, and it's the likely to be the future direction of race series across the globe.
