<personal opinion>

These EVs have to be the most boring form of Motorsport ever. There is no sound, why are all the videos dubbed with music overlays? Oh yeah, boring.. EV race cars are as exciting to watch as a Prius.

</end personal opinion>

Technology wise, pretty cool achievement VW has there and I can appreciate it for that. If you haven't already seen there are a ton of videos out there (youtube) showing the technology and engineering that went into this. Definitely worth the time to watch.
