"Its great that there is a special day set aside to bring Environmental Awareness to the Public's attention. Hopefully this transcends into the remaining 364 days of the year. Promoting environmental solutions has been the goal of Planet Earth Motorsports from the very beginning in 1996. There are some many simple and easy solutions such as choosing Low Emission Vehicles as your daily driver. The Acura Integra GS-R race cars are one of many Honda and Acura automobiles striving to meet tomorrow's needs. Each of us can do something to make the world a better place to live." - States Planet Earth Motorsports creator Will Nonnamaker
