If the field was significantly comprised of EVs, I'd be elsewhere. If that makes me out of touch and a dinosaur, then so be it.

PS - I did see the Jaguar Formula E car go up Shelsley - "Scalextric on speed". I understand that formal competition had to be suspended for the period of its run up the hill. There was talk of needing thousands of gallons of water available otherwise.
I did read up that the requirement for 1 car , in case it catches fire , is a fire fighting truck with 12,000 litres of water .
