When I was a student engineer I wanted to build my own road car. I planned out how much it would cost, where I would buy parts, what would I use as a donor vehicle, how would I manufacture the bodywork and most importantly: what engine would I use? I didn't want to make just another kit car, it had to be scalable, and with my own engine.
In September 2014, ten teams will face each other on the tarmac for the first ever racing series that will feature only electric cars - the FIA Formula E World Championship. It will be a ground-breaking championship, filled with new challenges, where drivers will use two cars rather than one, and 'refuelling' will be done wirelessly.
