Professional Motorsport World put together a special edition to mark its 10th anniversary, looking back over the past decade of racing technology and also looking forward to the next 10 years.

I was asked to contribute a piece for the special edition looking at electric racing, examining the past and future for EVs in events as diverse as Pikes Peak, Dakar, Le Mans and Formula E.
