Associate Professor of Automotive Technology and contributing editor Tony Martin has an article published in the March 2011 edition of MotorAge. “Run Silent, Run Fast” is a detailed overview of a renaissance in automotive design, and the major push being made to reduce the environmental impact associated with personal transportation. Martin writes, “Cars are being made lighter, with more exotic materials being used to replace conventional cast iron and steel. Alternative fuels also are being promoted in an effort to reduce dependence on foreign oil. More significantly, the very nature of the automotive power train is changing, with a gradual shift from mechanical and hydraulic systems to electric drives. These trends are having an impact on the world of racing.”
