    I like it. Electric race cars are the future and it's cool to see the Formula guys take the lead.

    Yeah, they sound odd compared to a fire-breathing piston engine but 80dB is a lot easier on the hearing than the usual F1 130dB.

    The DJ is louder than the cars!
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    Golf is for people worried about hearing. Racing is supposed to be loud! 230hp silent cars is about as bad as it gets.

    You've never been around an RX-7 with open pipes. Good grief, that's painfully loud.

    Oh wait.....

    I think Heidfeld would say the apple has fallen very, very far from the tree. Maybe even rolled down a hill, onto a road, and got smashed by a tractor.

    Overall, I dunno. The track itself really didn't lend itself to racing. But I'm willing to give it a chance.

    Slot cars were big when I was a kid in the 1960s. I had a slot car and a controller, and I went with my best friend Mike to the slot car track on Ventura Blvd. in Tarzana, CA all the time. They had a slot car road course like 5 lanes wide. Big fun for an 11-year-old . . .

    Funny, I thought the exact opposite. Reminded of Prost vs Senna at Suzuka, just even more blatant and ridiculous.
