Two young animal rights activists in auto racing outfits served up vegetarian sausages to racing fans gathering Thursday for the weekend's Grand Prix, saying it was better than taking sex drugs.

"We're distributing vegetarian sausages made without meat, without cholesterol, and without harm to animals, in the spirit of Formula 1 racing to get people's 'engines revving,'" Melissa Galianos of People of the Ethical Treatment of Animals told AFP.

"Animal proteins can block blood vessels and arteries to all organs, not just the heart, and result in a breakdown in the bedroom," she explained. "So we're encouraging people to get their protein from vegetables."

The Grand Prix is expected to attract thousands of spectators.
