CEBU, Philippines - The big-hearted Team No Care Racing (NCR) drivers made it sure they will end the year with a bang as they harvested 16 trophies jacked up with six championship titles in both the special and regular classes during the fourth and final leg of the 2010 Philippine Autocross Championship Series over the weekend at the picturesque South Road Properties (SRP).

Speed demon Jong King proved once more why he is Team NCR's ace racer as he had five podium finishes spiked with first-place honors in Lifan Car and all-wheel drive categories and third in the novice modified C. King also the registered the fastest time in Lifan Car in one minute and 15 seconds.

King's teammates Dennis Corro and Philip Lim settled for second and third, respectively, in the Lifan Car class.

Team NCR founding member Alan "Big Al" G. Choachuy made his 'swan song' in car racing a memorable one as he topped the novice stock A in style, edging out Kartzone's fastest rider Derek Arculli by just three-tenths of a seconds. Choachuy clocked in 16.61 seconds, while Arculli posted 16.64sec.

"This is my farewell run as I'm taking a leave of absence in autocross scene for the 2011 season. But I will still be actively involved with Team No Care Racing," said the award-winning sportsman Choachuy, who spiced up his thrilling victories with triple runners-up in novice B and C and Starlet class.

Choachuy was using his 2000 Nissan tuned by Dodot of DAJ, who helped his car run faster with the aid of a W.12 Black Box - a gadget that will make all cars save fuel, more mileage per liter and of course run faster with lesser smoke emission, thus, environmental friendly.

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
