Zapping the Dragon...



Ran across this last week when perusing various news sources, as Indy Cars Dragon Racing has become the second U.S. racing entity to join the fledgling Formula E series after Andretti Autosport signed-up earlier this year.

And while I'm curious how this new all electric series will do, I'm still skeptical 'bout how drivers having to unbuckle 'N run to an awaiting car because the battery power of said vehicles cannot last an entire race will ultimately promote EV technology. I mean isn't this the ultimate form of Range Anxiety? Not to mention the whole visceral noise equation... Nevertheless it's good to see two IndyCar teams getting in on the act, so look for Formula E next year...
