Any opinions on the changes that look to be coming?

When will we see the first hybrid/EV race car at club level? Confused

reading the article - i'm amazed that they didnt go for brake re-generation, and such a small battery/output. BUT do re-gen on the over run :S

Seems more of a token gesture, but I guess they (TOCA) have to be seen as doing something more sustainable to remain 'current'

I do quite like the idea of having X amount of extra power available per lap, and you can use that when/where you want Very Happy
Removing success ballast and replacing with extra 'boost' from the battery - I like that!

agree - use it anywhere and there is still an element of skill/uncertainty and ability to defend against it
