Goodwood's Festival of Speed might as well be called the Festival of Green

As this weekend's Festival of Speed there's a new attraction that gets away from the speed and focuses a bit more on the green. Created by Clean Green Cars, the FoS-TECH exhibit brings together a slew of cars we love here at AutoblogGreen and puts them in one area at the same time. If you're going, and have pictures you'd like to share, you know how to contact us...

Jay Nagley, the publisher of Clean Green Cars, explained FoS-TECH this way: "Goodwood is the perfect venue to present the future of green motoring. The debate about cars and the environment has been far too polarized in the past, with extremists on one side trying to ignore green issues and extremists on the other side portraying the car as irredeemably evil. FoS-TECH shows how cars can and will radically improve their environmental performance."

No doubt. Just check out this list of vehicles that will be on display at FoS-TECH this weekend, (descriptions courtesy of Clean Green Cars). Click on the highlighted names for pictures and more information from the ABG archives.
