I loved the bit where he stated I liked the way it sounded I wonder if its anything like the old electric milk floats we used to have about on the roads ??
any chance we can have some video footage of a test so that we can all see and hear it PLEASE! ?

Too late. This series should've been established 10 or 20 years ago. For the last several decades motorsport's stagnated. F1 should always stay on the brink of technical knowledge and possibilities. F1 is an overrestricted joke these days. If electric engines are the future, so be it! I wanna see as innovative racing as possible!

Thanks for the heads up omar I watched it and yes must admit I quite liked what I saw. I always thought the Space age would bring this type of car to the pinnacle of Motorsport and from what bit I just viewed has indeed got me interested in following the Formula E the sound kind of reminded me of the first time that rocket cars were down at the Santa Pod a lot of years ago cant explain why fully that is but it does anyway I am happy to see this progressing along I am pretty keen on it doing so I feel that it has its place in the race world :-)

Could be pretty cool I think, but the focus on street courses is a bit alarming although I definitely see why they would have taken that route. Not impressed with the looks either...
