NASCAR going green

All about the torque. Couple thoughts…

“efforts are being made to add an entertaining sound to the otherwise near-silent electric drive.”

IMHO, let sound of them flying threw the wind and high pitched VFD/motor whine be all that there is, in addition to announcers giving play by play like you’re watching it on TV.

“two 30-minute events with no pit stops or charging”

They need to develop quick change-out batteries. Pull in for a pit stop, get a whole new battery fast and off you go. That type of tech could change the world and wouldn’t it be cool if it was perfected by NASCAR?

Did you guys know that Formula 1 already uses hybrid car technology? Its far from green.

Did not know that. Don’t follow any racing at all. Makes sense though given the amount of braking. Going to take a lot more technology for EV’s be better than ICE just going in an oval for 500 miles.

I can see EV being pretty handy with F1, with the nearly vertical torque curve coming out of corners.
