    Maybe it's the clip you're watching. I like it more than women's or men's basketball. try this one.



    Besides that, ever see a player moonwalk during a game?

    New season starting with 12 cars this year. Grand finale at the Stade de France which, last time they raced there, had 62,000 attendance figure.

    Nooooo! That's an awesome noise; the power!

    Seriously, drive an ev for a while and the daga,daga,daga of old gas-tech just becomes noise. It's all about association.

    The first town ever hold an event called a "Grand Prix" will host the "1st Electric Grand Prix of Pau" the weekend of the 20th of May. The cars involved will be the same ones now participating in the Trophee Andros. Can't wait to see how they go on pavement.

    Here's a link to the AutoblogGreen story of the races. The videos below have some bits of racing footage as well as some (French) interviews. The 2nd is an English news piece. Looks like some pretty intense racing, wish we could see what was broadcast in its entirety.

    So are the jokes in the comments section. But also kind of great:

    "Those crashes were very shocking.

    Clearly repulsed by the apex.

    Looks like it Hertz.

    OK, these are getting well into the range of "ug... please stop." So I will."

    "When I saw the crash I was like "Ohm my God!"
