Silverstone's Formula 1 gets treated to water purifying system

If the Formula 1 racing cars perform better than ever at this year's British Grand Prix at Silverstone, maybe their new water purifying system has a hand in it.

Suffolk based DaRo UV Systems has supplied the world-famous racing venue with a new UV system which will supply 20 cubic metres of bacteria free water an hour.

The water will be used in the Formula 1 racing cars as well as for hospitality and cleaning at the track's iconic new £27 million pit and paddock complex.

DaRo UV systems general manager, Julian Cant, said: "Everything at the new complex is state-of-the-art, no expense has been spared, so I suppose it is fitting that a revolutionary water purifying system is being used.

"UV light is becoming an increasingly popular method of purifying water and food because it is environmentally friendly. UV kills bacteria without using chemicals, and the less chemicals we use the better it is for our health and the environment in general."

DaRo is on track with its own high performance, having also recently received full accreditation from the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme for its UV water purifying systems. Alison Brown
