The blog on Core's page reminded me of a Gordon Murray article from CAR. He discussed the first time they had teams race soap box cars at Goodwood. The teams all had carbon fiber and regenerative braking...they were clocking such high speeds that they had to move the start line down the hill to slow them down! He also discussed his son's car though...which without McLaren's help, also used innovations like regenerative braking. He was impressed with his son's and the rest of the neighborhoods innovative designs. Unfortunately, they don't get articles or web sites explaining their developments:/
