    First action from the e-Corsa series in Germany. Remember that these are the equivalent of Rally5/R1 cars, they're not meant to be as spectacular as WRC or Rally2/R5.

    The Fabia is fast. Sounds still sucks, but no complains about the other elements of the car

    As you say for comparison you'd need Rally5/R2 car, I don't even remember ever seeing one tbh, lowest class I ever saw for more than one corner is R2.

    Anyway I think the concept of the car is kinda flawed. Why build an electric car that tries to be the same as petrol one? It could easily have more power/acceleration (say 50%) while keeping similar complexity. (Just like the electric "R5" Fabia has more power than the R5)

    The danger of course is a "cheap" car with simple suspension that is too fast for it, leading to dangerous crashes (N4 comes to mind). This could maybe be limited by limiting when the power is delivered.

    Two weeks ago I went to a rally with my son after more than a year. He plays rally on computer, sometimes watches rally online with me and has driven in noisy "performance" cars before.

    After R5s a 208 Rally2 came... son's reactions:
    "Daddy why can't they make electric rally cars so they don't make so much noise?" (holding his ears)
