I don't get the appeal of watching people drive around in circles. Seems like a giant waste of energy, whether it comes in the form of gasoline or in the form of electricity. I can think of a thousand other ways in which that same energy could be used to better the world. I don't consider race car driving a real sport anyway since the driver's not really doing the grunt work. Kind of like how I don't consider hunting a sport either because the gun does most of the work (when the animals start shooting back then I'll consider it a sport).

It's exciting to see what's possible. Even though this might seem like an extravagance to some, there will be benefits derived to help the masses. Way to go and keep on innovating!
