Anybody else catch the first race of this new venture. The noise of them reminds me of when I used to play with my remote control cars as a kid. I have to say the first race didn't disappoint even if you did have to wait till the last lap for the main incident.

It basically zero emission formula one cars. There are differences though; the chassis is built by one company, the batteries are made by Williams and a few other parts are done by a certain manufacturer from what I can work out so the cars are technically more equal? They run on Michelin tyres and each driver has two cars for a race which they change around midway.
They run a big electric motor coupled with I think a 5 speed senquential gearbox. They are limited to 150Kw power in the race but I think qualifying allows the full potential of 200kw. I think the idea is the team have to work out how much of the 150kw output to use so the cars will last and not run out of juice. When watching it the other day one teams was set at 145kw.
