A fantastic result for e-motos Image

And this was a standing lap! Not that this would add much to the average speed, but still. I think they should push for faster laps before changing the format to two laps. That kind of energy storage will require a massive advance in battery technology.

It's well over 115 kg of the best cells around. Phenomenal!
