Are car races bad for the environment?

    Yes, car racing makes the environment less sustainable to life as we know it. The primary damage racing does is from the immense amounts of fossil fuels burned by the cars, which pollute the air, contributing to greenhouse gasses and thus to climate change. In addition, the tracks and parks built for racing, and the parking lots and stands built for spectators, contribute to erosion, run-off and eventually water pollution. In fact, the oil and gas from the cars may end up directly in a lake or stream. Finally, the packaging of food and merchandise at racing events will commonly end up littering the ground or in a landfill.

    Automobiles emit harmful chemicals into the atmosphere, such as hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds.  These pollutants contribute both to atmospheric aerosol particles, photochemical smog, and ground-level ozone.
