Motor racing doesn’t need to be loud. This weekend, the inaugural season of the Formula E championship, the world’s first all-electric racing series, came to a close with the final two races at Battersea Park in London. New Scientist was lucky to get behind-the-scenes access to the Dragon Racing team as it prepared for the races. The team finished second in the championship.
