That's something I've wondered about the viability of Hydrogen (R101 and the Hindenberg don't exactly inspire confidence ). That said the batteries in electric cars have been known to burn like *******s and will keep on reigniting for some time so they're exactly ideal either - and let's face it - if there's a sport where there are going to be some big hits then it's rallycross.

A Swedish article shared in the enthusiasts of Höljes group on Facebook stated that anyone within a 25 meter radius of a burning electric car could be exposed to toxic gases which could result in death.

This was sent out by the MSA (now Motorsport UK) regarding electric vehicles at speed events. Interesting thing for me is the requirement of at least 40,000 litres of water
