Title: Formula E, not Essex, though nearly
Post by: Big Al on June 26, 2015, 11:03:44 AM
A message received from one of my regular information resources. Such a move can only help the applied technology, but I still think its barking, Essex, up the wrong, tip, tree, Essex. Well we see the tuned G Whiz of the Bobel team drawn from the Romford area of Essex?

Dear Alan Hitchcock,

This weekend sees the debut of ‘Formula E’ racing in London.

As the name suggests, the competition is basically a small-scale version of F1 with one big twist – all the cars are powered by electricity rather than petrol.

Sure, the top speed of around 150mph is still a long way off the 200mph-plus speeds you see in F1. Yet the fact that electric cars are racing around tracks at even these high speeds proves once again that electric cars are coming of age.

That’s great news for the manufacturers of the cars and their components. However, it’s even better for the miners extracting one of the key minerals used in them...
