If the Renault Zoe e-sport is anything to go by, the future of touring car racing is safe.

The car, a bonkers 456bhp skunkworks project produced by Renault and French engineering firm Tork, uses Formula E electric technology and a chassis fit for a racing car. The results this setup produces are truly, erm, electric.

Ok, so there’s no screaming oil burner under the bonnet and it doesn’t have a gearbox, but the exhilarating pace of the twin-motor setup and tyre-shredding torque they produce means this is no less of a challenge for the driver.

That should, we believe, translate into some fantastic racing, were the e-sport to be entered into a one-make series like the Clio Cup. Not convinced? Perhaps watch our short video and then let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Judging by how hard the Driver was working the Wheel this funky little Car has too much power in such a short wheelbase,but in say a Megane,well it might be a real Monster!
