Jean Todt, President of FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile), mentioned that he is working with the Formula One's governing body to create new racing categories which include Electric Cars, Go-Karts and Single-Seater Racing...
If Formula One does go electric, one thing is for sure... it'll be a heck of a lot QUIETER...!!
“We want as soon as possible to have new categories with new energy,” said Mr Todt, and he added that the first season for electric car racing could be as early as 2013, and would be as global as possible. It will be interesting to see if this has wide appeal in the US, and how fast these things can actually go.
