A1GP World Cup of Motorsport organisers have unveiled an ambitious series of initiatives to help reduce the series’ environmental footprint.

Series organisers have pledged to tackle climate change by a set of measures to be known as THINK Greener Racing.

Measures announced include switching to biofuel, detailing waste reduction measures, the promise to carbon-offset unavoidable emissions and promoting environmental awareness through the series to a global audience spanning 150 countries.

These initiatives were announced today at A1GP's official 2007/08 test session at Silverstone, Great Britain by Pete da Silva, CEO, in front of a global audience.

You can listen to a selection of interviews below, including the thoughts of three Formula One champions on their views on the current battle for the title and the chances of Britain's Lewis Hamilton.
