ING gets Socialist Commissioners oversight

ING
Wouter Bos has been assigned to the ING board for oversight as the Dutch Government has bailed the struggling investment firm out.Perhaps the saving grace in this story is that it appears M. Bos is at least aware of racing and also seems to share Max’s penchant for ‘green’ racing. To those ends, should F1 become a spec series with ‘green’ engines and sensitivity to eco-friendly causes, then ING’s involvement may not be scuttled by the board of directors under the oversight of Mr. Bos. It seems Max and Mr. Bors may just be birds of a feather both in racing ideology as well as political ideology. ;)

Formula Zero has successfully attempted the world’s first 1/8mile International FIA Record for fuel cell vehicles! The official record time, set by Bo Ridder, is 11,869 seconds.

The record attempt was made on Thursday 26th October 2006, along the Coolsingel in Rotterdam. This was a unique and unforgettable moment in the history of zero-emission racing. This record marks the first step towards sustainable racing and challenges the motorsport community to compete in the Formula Zero race class.

For a few hours last Thursday afternoon, the Coolsingel, a busy street in the heart of Rotterdam, transformed into a race course. Enthusiastic crowds stood at the barriers, and press crews were snapping and interviewing everywhere! After Bo Ridder’s FIA record attempt, Wouter Bos, head of the Dutch Socialist Party, was invited to set the world’s first Formula Zero speed record. Like a real zero-emission action hero he raced the kart in his special race suit, and set the record at 12,53 seconds….not bad! Afterwards he drank the water from the race kart’s exhaust, commenting that he actually prefers beer, and sprayed champagne over the crowd -in true racing style! Definitely a successful day, for which Formula Zero would like to thank the following people, for all their support:Formula Zero has successfully attempted the world’s first 1/8mile International FIA Record for fuel cell vehicles!
