Playing around getting some footage of Kevin's nice 430 at shannonville
track day (MR2 club track day). You can't really tell until near the end,

Better to get footage than just pass that big red exotic :).

Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and drive line
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$25.00 per 100kms.
