The Oaktec rally team will continue its eco-racing efforts this year with a Honda Insight. Last year the team won its class in the UK national Formula 1000 championships. Team boss Paul Andrews is expecting a "successful" season with the Honda's weight advantage and aerodynamics. The main concern is running a 1-liter engine in a class with 1300cc vehicles. There isn't much information about the car at the Oaktec website, but Energy Efficient Motorsport is a sponsor and has a gallery.
