Despite its reputation as a high-octane, gas-guzzling sport, IndyCar racing has flirted with the greener side of life for a while. From Patrick Dempsey's solar sponsorships to a utility-scale solar farm at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, solar power has already played a prominent role in those efforts. Now British-born IndyCar driver Stefan Wilson is taking that flirtation global, launching a campaign called #ThinkSolar to fund solar lighting in communities across Africa.
