    I see, it would be interesting to know the difference in pollution by running electric cars with generators and a regular combustion engine.
    Because to me that sounds a bit like sweeping the dirt under the carpet...

    Im kinda excited about e-RX. I LOVE the sound and stuff... but hey, gimme something new. Lets see how it goes.
    MotoGP will have an electric Class next year too. Manufacturers said they are not interested, but big car brands also said that about FormulaE before season 1. Its all about the marketing... And we are heading into this electric engines thing so...

    Then I believe we'll hear about a MXGP electric class.... and, YES, SORRY... a top WRC electric class.

    I'm sorry, I got extremely confused! I remembered seeing Cummins diesel generators, but the real story is much more convincing. I doubted what I said as well.

    It turns out that to produce the energy for the cars they use diesel generators converted to utilize glycerine as fuel, a byproduct of biodiesel production. The actual generation of the energy is emission free.

    Here is the article http://www.fiaformulae.com/en/news/2...free-charging/

    Cometoyou have bought 2 cars, if they will run 2, or run 1 with one spare I didn't quite understand from the press release.
    Who bought the 3 car?
    And where do you find the information about cometoyou ?

    Benoît Tréluyer and Enzo Ide rumoured to be the drivers.

    Looking at the emissions of the traditional cars versus the electric cars is rather missing the main selling point in terms of the Championship. Electric rallycross potentially offers a platform for manufacturers to directly relate future electric/hybrid showroom models to motorsport. Even if the motorsport fan knows the connection between the two is tenuous, its a link that no other motorsport is able to offer at the moment.

    As for electric WRC, I can think of several factors that mean we're a long way off from that at present. Events would have to be radically restructured to accommodate electric in the WRC.

    Looks quick, sounds crap but not nearly as bad as I expected. I find it difficult to get beyond the fact that electric motors offer instantaneous torque, that's so suited to rallycross.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Actually, I was surprised..(I didn't mind with that)

    The title should be "WRX to having electric class as the top class."

    interesting article, potential for World (or at least some form of international) Supercar Championship as well? A minimum 15 car entry is a decent basis for the switch to electric.
