FIA Formula E Championship

I thought it ended brilliantly. Crashes get a lot more media coverage and this one was spectacular and well timed for greatest effect with the two leading drivers on the last lap. More people will tune in next race to see what happens between the two drivers next time. Noone was hurt and it was a g...

What to do in Adelaide?

Could show you the Fast Charger at Mitsubishi in action with my imiev. South of the city too.

Or Eric could borrow it for the day to show you around town in an EV - seats 4 incl driver!

There is an Electric Transport Museum out north but I'm pretty sure it's all trams.
