After his first laps with Cupra e-Racer Ekstrom added: “It was really cool, especially when we gained full power, leaving the slower corners of the track. I still need time to get used to the sound of the engine; it’s much quieter than any other I’ve taken before, and I’m very emotional driver. Besides, I have to pay close attention to energy management at each round; this is important for a racing car, almost as important as its speed.
