Honestly, not very good for knowledgable fans, but good for the casual I assume.

i suspect if you tried to charge that battery at home the power drain would blew the grid. pretty sure a five amp plug would not be much use

Most likely you don’t need it to charge in five minutes at home.

Imagine if that is developed and becomes a thing. People would go from cars that need to be driven to somewhere to be “recharged” to ones where you can still “fill up” quickly when away from home and can also have the convenience of “filling up”, albeit at a slower rate, at home.

Of course some way to go, but would be a nice feature for us.

I’ve found the recharging at home to be one of the advantages of electric cars. That and the drive train which is a pleasure to use from a day to day point of view.

My question about the batteries are more a reliability and cost thing. Yep its great they are faster to charge, but what is their capacity, how reliable are they and what do they cost relative to the current used? If they die/need replacing after a year then its not great.

Nothing displaces a 50L petrol tank. It doesn't need a 300 kW line to be filled. And you can wash your hands in it. Not mentioning all other exciting things you can do with it. By the way, how much more than 50% of electricity is still produced with fossils (new coal station in Germany?)? While there's no TOCAMACs all this "green" electricity is a pure politicans nonsense, not mentioning the worse. And electrofans do not care about racing - FE is a great example.

Oreca and Red Bull Advanced Technologies to develop spec chassis for hydrogen class.

Moan groan spec components etc but this probably makes good sense. Times are tough and having a specialised chassis with a standard hydrogen tank will make it easier to get this off the ground.

When I first saw the headline I was thinking that the powertrain was being developed as well, and then thought what's the point? But it appears that this chassis will just be the vessel for people to develop their own hydrogen power plants?

It sounds like the Formula E master plan but for hydrogen, so free powertrain but everything else spec.

So, with Acura announced for IMSA LMDH in 2023, but with both their current factory teams very clear in their Le Mans ambition, we could be looking at a pretty breathtaking LMH Le Mans 24hr entry:

Making some assumptions here, but potentially mad
