    That’s pushing it a little. But I agree it’s made a potential difference.

    Will this stop the whole series or can they run another in parallel.
    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    Hopefully it will all be rectified soon and this madness can terminate.

This reaches its limit when you have a battery inside the charger to balance the load, as said any short-circuit to a LiPo is potentially hazardous and once lit, those fires are very difficult to manage. That's why you store the batteries in safety storage boxes.

    The fact that a battery has caught fire is part of the risk profile. How this can lead to the entire paddock burning down is the question which needs answering.
    Hence my observation about risc management.

    A sadly costly learning experience.

    It looks unlikely that Le Mans will see them out for the first time.
    No doubt though that the series will go ahead.
    When the going gets tough, the DAF gets going.

    I wonder if DC will mention it in the Australian qualifying highlights.

    Current thinking is there won’t be much resistance to running a series in parallel.

    I don't really know watt's watt, but this is certainly an illuminating thread.

    I think I need to insulate myself from such a charged thread.
