The formula for Formula racing hasn't really evolved. F1 continues to be a 200-MPH soap opera and only die-hards pay attention to the feeder series below it. Formula E offers something different. It's close-quarter racing brimming with cutting-edge technology that, for the first time in decades, is not only approachable, but could be applicable to the future of performance. And after tossing a Formula E car around the track, I'm actually excited about an open-wheel spec series. I tasted the future and, for once, the future delivers.
