Is the Audi RS Q etron the future of EV motorsport ? [DAKAR 2023]

Getting to see the rally was a huge bucket list item for me. I was welcomed by Audi UK to join the team in the desert for two of the very best days of my life. First I got a motorists perspective by driving an adjusted Audi Q5 in the sand. I actually did give a feel for what the drivers and riders go through for 2 week. We got to see a few of the Classic bike, automobiles and trucks prior to heading to the bivouac and the Team Audi garage.

We had a full technical briefing and trip of the garage and and truck. A distinct racecar with 2 Formula E motors and a 52kWh battery for propulsion and a 2 litre DTM TFSI engine running as a generator the RS Q etron is perhaps the most complex race in the world.

    I think if you had incorporated a dog walk into that content it would have been my favourite video of all time especially with a cameo role by Joe & Harry. I could watch that all day. Brilliant.

    What a great watch, the ultimate rally raid. Would be interesting to hear about the hybrid technology of that Audi, why that particular choice and what its emissions are like. On a synthetic fuel, could guilt free motorsport !!
