I sort of just found out that the Formula 1 international body is setting a "Formula E" specialist race just for electric cars and it will all be using roughly the same format as Formula 1.. !

Just imagine all new race unproven electric car tech going through the hard grind of racing. It could be like the early days of Formula 1 and petrol engines, testing and retesting and the heartbreak of new tech and discovery again.

2 teams setting up to test cars for FE :-
