    Certainly better than formula e. But 1000hp and 350kph top speed sounds a bit ambitious if its planned for anywhere in the near future unless we want pit stops every 5 minutes :D

    If this is the future of DTM or DTM should merge into it, then I don't like it. DTM was and still is a series with a lot of history and loud cars.
    If this is going to be a completely new series by ITR, then take all my money 'cause this is finally a good electric series! The robot pitstops are quiteambitious though, too much factors play into these than a robot can handle it fast and by itself.

    The battery change seems indeed quite complicated. I just found something, the chinese already use. A 3 minute swap instead of a 3 hour charge.

    tesla did something or do something like this , if you charge normally , you get it free , if you do the battery swap it takes te same time or less than filling up at the pump but you pay



    dont know if this still is possible
