GHOGH should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Electric GT

Electric GT series - Tesla Model S as base.

Be interesting if they change battery packs during race to see how quickly the pit crew can do this.
Drop the big wheel nut tool and pick up a nascar style fast wheel nut type tool.

Some details here on the cars and provisional calendar. Season kicks off at Silverstone in August.

They have stripped 525kg from the standard car so performance looks fairly nuts.

2 x 60km (2 x 37 miles)

60km is 10 laps of the GP circuit, 16 laps of the International circuit or 22 laps of the National circuit.

This actually looks to be more interesting to me than FE. I hope the first race will be broadcast online.

They got this covered, it seems:

Each race will be streamable on YouTube, Twitch and Periscope, with a permanent live feed of every car's cockpit included.

I think it's interesting they aim at streaming via twitch, of all platforms. Periscope, youtube, ok, but a gaming streaming website? Anyways, pity the races are kinda short, but I suppose I'll be checking it out as well. And indeed, looks to have more interest potential than FE for the "traditional" racing fan.

Forze Hydrogen Electric Racing competes this weekend in Assen in the Supercar Challenge.
The base of the prototype is an ADESS LM-03 P3 with hydrogen electric engine.
The time of 2.01.302 minutes completed during the qualifying session is still far from a reference time Ligier JS P3 at 1.35.752 minutes, but it is always difficult at the beginning of a new technology.

Not to mention that they don't have the backing of an OEM to support their research and testing. Only problem is that if you take a new technology (or at least new to the sport) and OEMs do stuff with it, things get expensive real quick.

The tesla based series above looks interesting if Tesla fully support it, although the cars are small-ish tourer size

I don't know whether racing the series via Twitch would be a good idea though? I mean, have you heard about stream monsters there and their emotes?

I had no idea that you could even watch racing on Twitch. I though it was mostly gaming stuff on there.

Twitch is mostly for gaming, but if it costs them nothing extra to do it then it's just more exposure.

Tesla does not officially back this series, but Musk has tweeted about it a couple of times. So unofficial support I guess.

Car is based on the pre-facelift version of the P100DL (although I think their first test car was built on a P90D), but the new renders are using the new front end so I think it'll change.

Obviously we all know how ludicrous the Tesla standing starts are, so corner exit speeds on this thing will be awesome, but it's the race distances that get a bit confusing. E-GT are claiming it'll do 90km at racing speed. This makes sense, since a Formula E ePrix is about 90km. This car is 100 kWh battery compared to the 28 kWh battery in the Formula E car. So it'll battery is over 3 times larger, but the car weights more, so it'll do double the distance. That makes sense.

E-GT are claiming that the race distances will be around 130km each though (2 races per event, totaling 260). So if that happens then that's more than they say. So I can see the race distances being cut to around 90km. For perspective, that's 15 laps of the Silverstone GP circuit, or 36 laps of the national circuit. So a race distance is approx 1.5 times a BTCC race, which isn't that long, but maybe long enough to start off with.

I find this more interesting than Formula E, and I'll give it a try, but no sound and gears might still be a killer for me. But I'll give it a try. As long as there is no sodding fan boosts.

At first I thought you said "as long as there are no sodding fans". Which I can see is a problem for a lot of series (read that either way ).
