Not sure this is the right place, but I'm intrigued with the FE cars and wondered if it was possible to get a go in one of the gen 1 cars at a test day. Anyone know anything about where the gen 1 cars are now?

I presume the previous FE cars are still with the various teams, although whether batteries / motors / electronics were leased or not may have rendered some of them unusable.

One was recently out in Austria racing at the GP Ice Race, including towing a guy on skis.

Contact the teams.

Just googling, it looks like the gen 1 cars were due to be handed back. I wonder if they are all in a shed in donington? biggrin

If you wanted to mount one on your living room wall rather than driving it, one was auctioned in Paris last week (at the Retromobile show).

A show car without any mechanicals so the €11K it found seemed reasonable.

Contact Lee at Puremotion motorsport, I know he has run the cars for testing and promotional days in 2018. He might know.

Ah, that's interesting, I know Lee, he bought a radical from me a few years back.
Thanks

You would think it would be worth using them for a support series. Short races without need for the pit stop.
