Being green is often perceived as being boring and sustainable materials thought of as somehow inferior to traditional materials. The WorldF3rst racing project was established to disband those myths and show just what could be achieved with sustainable, natural and recycled materials. Using a F3 race car as a real world demonstrator has pushed previously unconsidered materials into the demanding motorsport arena and they are performing as well as more traditional materials such as carbon fibre. This talk will present the origins of the WorldF3rst car; discuss the different technologies that were adopted and look at how the project has demonstrated sustainable materials can be competitive in the marketplace. It will also present what the future opportunities in the area are.
