All-electric racer takes on Barcelona.

After being given the green light in February this year, the Electric GT race series is gearing up to kick off in November.

We know what the cars will look like, and we know how much power they'll have (580kW/995Nm), but the question of how a heavy, battery-electric Tesla translates to the racetrack still needs answering.

Thankfully, Tiff Needell has stepped up to provide some answers. The (very) British ex-racer and TV presenter was let loose behind the wheel of a EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL (catchy, huh) on video.

In a brief stint behind the wheel, the presenter found the handling sharp, the steering solid and the brakes eye-popping in their effectiveness. There was an issue with the batteries overheating, though.
