    EVs in motorsport sucks and they're far from being a solution to global Co2 pollution. Some leaders at the industry are finaly starting to be brave: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/i...c-people-think

    Just hope there's still time to stop the public and political hysterical race to kill the internal combustion engine...

    A good day to remember Henri Toivonen by watching this rare documentary Vauhdin Surma (The Kill of Speed) from 1987. I have written English subtitles over the long Finnish interviews.

    The brave and outspoken Mr. Rohrl on EVs: they’re a disaster! Formula E cars sound like golf carts…

    Electric cars is the future...they might not be the future in 10-20 years but they might be in 50-60 years. fossil fuels will run out long before before the sun goes red giant on us... so comments like that do not really help.

    but we have to find a balance between forcing electric cars into motorsport because we are relatively close to that point or forcing it because of vegan tree hugging pussies that use macbooks.

    I think motorsports will die when we reach the point that we have to use them due to being our only option.

    Agreed again. See, we can have a civil discussion.

    My look on it is: Push electric cars for people who don't care about cars and racing so there is more left for those of us who do.

    Save emissions and the planet in day to day life and pedal to the metal for our entertainment.

    Trouble is of course that with no corporate interest the funds for WRC, F1, WEC and so forth might run dry very quickly.

    If it don't make dollars, it don't make sense. Go figure.

    First there will be a generation or two running on biofuels probably. Fossil fuel is already quite absent in top level motorsport, 10% ethanol is already std. in 95 oct. .

    I don't believe in electrical cars. Certainly here in Belgian, there is not enough green electricity to supply all cars. Over the full life span, I don't think you gain much on CO2 emission. I rather believe in other solutions like hydrogen (although you also need electricity to make it).

    Even if you used a diesel generator to charge an electric car, it would still consume less energy than a diesel car. https://reneweconomy.com.au/tesla-ev...nal-car-61942/

    Yes, but there is also the production and recycling of the batteries...
