    In the world of motorsport, it is usually all about big engines and big money.

    But a group of students from United Nations Relief and Works Agency's (UNRWA) Khan Younis Training Centre (KYTC) in Gaza have created a Formula 1-style racing car from scratch, out of recycled parts.

    Because of the Israeli blockade on Gaza, most of the parts for the car had to be manufactured at the centre's workshop.

    Proof that a little improvisation can go a long way - they have been invited to compete at this year's prestigious Formula Student competition, organised by the Institution for Mechanical Engineers.

    Al Jazeera's Nadim Baba has more on Gaza's first ever racing car.
