    Looking forward to seeing this series making a debut to GTS. Could use more EVs especially racing ones.

    I'd love to see Formula E come to GT. Hopefully this means we also get some actual Formula E street circuits. Maybe we could get the Monaco short course alongside the full one.

    Honestly I was expecting this. So obvious as GT looks into the future of racing and also their e-sport agenda. Good news.

    It's a perfect fit, Formula E and dull street tracks :tup:

    They'll all be Group X, unless they get their own category... Group E?

    ...there is no new category lol, it is a Gr.X car. Also I don't see this fully simulated if they don't fix stupid infinite eV power... Batteries need to have drain mode enabled, so when driving batteries go... This should be the case for all eV and hybrids in game (Model S, i3, LaFerrari).

    But I'd like to have it in game...

    I have been thinking how great it would be to have these new gen Formula E cars in GTS so I'm very pleased with this news.

    If we get more than one Group E would be warranted. Otherwise Group X because there's no way a Formula E would fit in any of the actual classes.

    I really want to get excited about this because the cars look awesome, but I'm just struggling. Just like I struggle to get into real Formula E racing...

    Just like Super GT cars got their own category(Gr 2) the same will happen with Formula E cars.

    I can't think of any category of motorsport that I am less interested in.

    Hopefully we’ll get some technical tracks to go along with these as they do seem to be missing currently.

    How about both versions of Paris from GT4?

    Looking at the "attack mode" video that was posted by the Formula E Channel on YouTube I noticed that the style and execution of the video was very similar to the ones we're used to see by PD. Have a look yourselves:

    In GT5 new additions were NASCAR and WRC, in GT Sport we'll get Formula E :boggled: Ok, it is interesting to have new racing series, but I will probably never drive them in the game.

    It will be an interesting way of driving. Lift and coasting for charging the batteries and limited use of brakes + still going fast around the track.

    It's made by Altspace who are a digital studio producing CGI amongst other things.... I wouldn't attempt to read ANYTHING into that video.

    Haha, but I think it's a skill that is difficult to master. I wonder if we'll get the fan boost? :lol:

    That would be interesting to see especially if the Formula E cars are going to be used for the FIA Gran Turismo Championship.

    Or to go one better, they should recreate one of those tracks in real life for Formula E. I mean, that R246 area in Akasaka is mostly suitable park land. It's not the worst idea ever. :)

    Well you better get used to it as it’s the future of motoring and motorsport.
     
  29. Motorsport will be dead to me at that point, I'm sure it will be for many others too.

    That’s cool, I was hoping they would come to GTS. I only drove formula E in Forza 6 once, it was fun. I hope PD get the sound right. Their electric cars tend to be very quiet like a lot wind noise.
