I saw loads today. Electric Lamborghini anyone? Fcuk that, there it was, looked like a Lamborghini, but no noise whatsoever, and not punching a hole in the ozone layer, WTAF. Terzo Millenio, apparently.

Figment of your imagination? Where did I say that?

I said they make the Model S look common. I've seen 2 on the road.

Visitors to the Goodwood Festival if Speed this year are seeing a few electric cars tackle the hill. The VW pikes peak thing is going for the outright record, the random name supercar thing is amazing close on time too, the Roboracer is somewhat slower but I guess has a crowd of lawyers frantically praying for no mishaps and I think there is at least one Formula E too. I guess there may well be others - surely Jaguar will want to show off the I-Pace forex.

Electric car racing. Great news, in the same way as finding out Glastonbury was going "Silent Disco".

I went to a local music festival with my daughter on Saturday. They have a silent disco there too, it's an excellent idea.

They’re amazing aren’t they. Love the idea of the LED colouring depending on tunes.

Ridiculous suggestion. There are only 25 formula drivers/cars so the chances of seeing one are remote.

I've never seen one on the roads of Somerset, and even when I last drove to London I didn't see any. SO if the chances of seeing them are so infinitesimally small, it stands to reason that they are a failure and probably don't even exist

Why would I?

Formula 1 is dull enough without EVs.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk calls British Thai cave rescuer a pedo.

Nice guy.

I thought of you when I read that! Not exactly coming over well from that whole episode, who'd have thought someone could manage to end up a baddie in the feelgood story of the summer?!

However, perhaps Elon Musk and Baby Huey might benefit from just letting stuff go... Go for a walk, do a bit of mindfulness or something.

Best reply would be to stage a reverse rescue, he gets the divers to put him in the cave then has to get out again using his shitty untested sub.

Yep, Musk has really made a massive arse of himself with that.

I've said before that I don't like Musk and I hate the arse-kissing he seems to attract but that doesn't mean that I have a vendetta against electric cars. The VW Pikes Peak car is an astonishing thing. If you watch the video of Sebastian Loeb's assault on Pikes peak it's almost incredible that any car could ever go up there faster but the ID R beat it by 16 seconds.

Well it has to be somewhere with electricity, which surely rules out most of Devon...
