    Thread: Formula E vs TT Zero vs TT World Series
Post: RE: Formula E vs TT Zero vs TT World Series

I've been absent for a little while. Are there any updates, especially containing pictures, related to the proposed modernization of the scoreboard etc. across the course from the grandstands?

I just can't see it happening either.  Wish I was wrong!  I think there would be a market for it albeit not near the crowds for NASCAR. (Never could see the attraction for "roundy round" racing myself...

It would be shortsighted in my opinion to leave Australia, New Zealand, the USA and maybe even Canada out of the picture.  Especially in the long term.  There's just too big of a market there.  Now if...

I hope/wish I'm wrong, but I can't see this being practical or financially viable in many locations other than the IOM.  If it did come to pass it could have events run in the USA the prior summer/fal...
