Bryan Sellers is an electric race-car driver. That is, he races electric cars. Which isn’t to say he isn’t exciting—i.e. electric—on the track, but rather that he’s currently competing in a Jaguar I-Pace EV, which its maker has organized a whole support series around called the I-Pace eTrophy, with races run before Formula E main events.

The fan actively controls underbody airflow – a feature Murray famously premiered on the Brabham BT46B Formula One ‘Fan Car’.
