I, for one, am super excited about Formula E.

Anytime that you have fast cars that are different than the norm, I'm on board.

And they can "refuel" these cars by replacing the electrolyte fluid in the battery just like gasoline.

@ Guitarman

perhaps you never heard about Tazio Nuvolari, who is considered by many as among the greatest driver of all time. in Milan GP, he use only one hand to steer and the another holding a bloodstained handkerchief - in fact many attributed his later death was from the result of of inhaling the burned fuel during those days of open face helmets. only later on the fuel technology becomes better and cleaner, so the case of cancers as the result of burning fuel drops.

i have no objections to the idea of Formula E. just bring it!

KGBVD is very lucky having ONLY solar and wind generated power coming from his outlets.When the output drops, due to lack of wind or sunshine, typical windfarms and solar generators must be backed up by more conventional means, often fossil fuel fired, hardly pollution-free!
I am all for reducing pollution, but Wind farms are not the answer, and their protagonists seem oblivious to the abovementioned drawback, and of the VISUAL pollution they cause.

Yes of course I've heard of Nuvolari, one of the three greatest of all time in my opinion. His asthma was almost certainly aggravated by the fumes of the alcohol fuel used until the mid-1950's, though since both his sons tragically died before he did there could well have been a genetic problem. He died in his fifties after a couple of strokes. He was however the exception - Fangio survived into his 80's, as did many of the great Mercedes drivers from the 1930's, Moss is still with us, and if I'm not mistaken Froilan Gonzales who won the first F1 British GP in 1051 is still around at 90.

Well before everyone jumps on the battery band wagon. Dont forget that fuel hydrogen which will render batteries in cars useless very shortly. It is already on trial in some places and provides a lot longer range it is much lighter and is plenty powerful. Batteries will be gone in 5 -8 years max.

Imagine multiple Matra V12 synthesizers, blasting down through the high-rise canyons... of course, AA would have to accommodate the amplifier drains.

Lots of entertaining battery swap stops too.

And, don't forget, one more racing series to further fragment the market.
