THE familiar roar of the engine will be absent during a motor race a Silverstone next month as schools go head to head in an eco-challenge.

The Greenpower Corporate Challenge is an electric car endurance race previously held at Goodwood.

Circuit boss Richard Phillips said the race was part of their plans to be a focal point for education and electric car and added: At a time when the motor sport industry is trying to up its game and improve its green credentials, events like this are a great way of showing what is possible.”
