I didn’t know that! I assumed cooling as the whirring noise is there for a while after the car is first plugged in, but not (eg) the next morning.

Have you read the Blue Book requirements for EVs? It's a bloody minefield and makes life extremely difficult, so much easier for organisers to exclude them completely.

Dunno if Shelsley were running them properly or as demo runs, I know that in the South West most events have been excluding them since the MSA (as it was) asked for something like 10,000 gallons of water on site. Think regs have been relaxed since then but still far too much when clubs are hovering around break even on some events.

Of course I'm sure most clubs would be open to the dialogue if someone came to them and was willing to do a lot of the hard work involved in getting an EV class running, perhaps you could offer your services?

There was a class for Fiat 500e cars in British Rallycross last year so there has been some wheel to wheel EV racing a amateur level. I'm not sure whether they did anything differently in regard to the safety aspect of the events though?

It was a proper timed class, but not part of any championship.
