"I would love to see racing formulas for electric vehicles or at least hybrid electric vehicles. And then you have an unlimited class and you say, look we don't care whether you have a few batteries and a light weight fast car – and you come in for recharging all the time – or whether you have a monster battery to where you can last the whole race and you'll be a little slower."
 
A great interview — always the case with Lutz — gets even better when Elon Musk joins him at Charlie's desk. Watch it here.
