    That’s just nothing but sour grapes from old petrol heads.

    Or as 'Fred_H' at PriusChat said, "Good. More free advertising."

    Yup, more free advertising for the EV revolution... and for Tesla!
    :) :) :)

    The people organizing a race can of course set any criteria they want for who is or isn't allowed to compete, but if they were gonna disallow EVs cars just because they are electric, then the Model Model 3 should have been disqualified before the race started... not after it placed second!
